This 1880's house has just undergone a FULL STATE OF THE ART RESTORATION down to the studs! It is fully loaded and brand new. Every mechanical, electrical and plumbing system has been newly installed, every construction innovation has been employed and all digital devices incorporated. This historic and much coveted house is coming to market fully redone and EXCEEDS its former glory.

The Henderson Place Historic District considers this house one of its finest, and the property takes pride of place on the prime corner of the entire District. The house overlooks the park from both frontages, with its longest facade overlooking the leafy expanse of Carl Schurz Park which is one of the TREASURES of Manhattan and boasts some of the finest seasonal plantings and mature landscapes in the city.Because of its double facade and banks of windows, the townhouse is filled with sunlight and leafy outlooks throughout the day. It is no wonder that this particular house with its air of delight and romance captivated the noted children's book author, Louise Fitzhugh, when she wrote Harriet The Spy and chose this central spot for the adventures.

The house's entrance is through a freshly planted walkway and it's steps are graced by a brand new Bevolo gas lantern. The entry foyer opens to a central Hall with a skylit staircase at the rear. The living room with wood burning fireplace is to the left and has a full corner of windows overlooking the park. Across the center hall is the dining room with a corner fireplace at one end and a full length bay window at the other. The dining room is serviced by a fully equipped butlers pantry and the restored dumbwaiter which accesses the eat in kitchen below.The eat in kitchen is BRAND NEW and FULLY EQUIPPED with a wood burning fireplace and access to its own latticed patio garden. Additionally this house has a rare additional service entrance.Upstairs are 4 bedroom, all with generously outfitted closet spaces and storage. The bedrooms are graced with lovely corners of windows and window seats over looking the park and leafy side street.

This house is captivating, and it abounds with light and comfort. Incredibly, a new owner can walk in with all the years of construction and planning just completed, every modern convenience, every new system in place, awaiting an immediate lifetime of happiness within its walls. Co-broke.
