Property Description

156 East End Avenue, A.K.A. 558 East 87th Street This gorgeous and notable 1880's house has just undergone a full gut 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 much coveted house is just 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 prized and protected 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 light 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 was chosen the central spot for the adventures. One approaches the entrance through a freshly planted walkway and steps graced by a brand new Bevolo gas lantern. The foyer opens directly 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 full butlers pantry and the restored dumbwaiter which accesses the heavenly large kitchen area below. The brand new fully equipped eat-in kitchen is dreamy, with a wood burning fireplace and access its own latticed patio garden, and the extremely rare historic service entrance so that all deliveries and maintenance people have a separate access not through the main entrance of the house. Upstairs are 4 bedroom and 2 baths, all brand new and having generously outfitted closet spaces and storage. The bedroom floors are graced with lovely corners of windows and window seats over looking the park and leafy side street. The house is captivating, and abounds with light and peacefulness. And incredibly, a new owner can walk in with all the construction and planning just completed, every modern convenience, every new system in place, awaiting an immediate lifetime of happiness within its walls. Co-broke.
