Yorkville house description

Overture

East 84th Townhouse is an Upper East Side home that's perfectly in tune, from the stately living space to the cheery kitchen and music room. A collection of colourful artworks adorn the walls, many of them cherished relics from your hosts' children, and with four well-proportioned bedrooms, there's room for the whole ensemble to lay their head. Nearby Charles Schurz Park offers glorious views over the East River, and in the surrounding streets a score of tasty restaurants awaits.

Symphony of life

Your hosts are a writer and a retired abdominal surgeon who have lived in their home for over 40 years. Their children are grown, but the sound of gleeful laughter still rings through East 84th Town house when their grandchildren come to visit.

Magnum opus

Bright floral wallpapers and muted Oriental carpets play against the dulcet strains of peach, ivory and coral downstairs. Gather around the grand piano – your hosts keep it well-stocked with plenty of sheet music should the spirit take you. The cosy country-style kitchen features terracotta tiles and a sunny breakfast nook, or slip into the back garden to enjoy the birdsong with your morning coffee.

And there’s a carved wooden staircase to carry you to any of the four bedrooms when you’re ready – arrange yourself in the grand master bedroom with a tome from one of the brimming shelves, or take to soaking in the blue bathroom’s delicate tub instead.

                                  Location

                                  Home to old New York gentility, the Upper East Side is both a neighbourhood and a way of life, immortalized in the novels of Truman Capote and Edith Wharton.

                                  In this patrician enclave, prep school kids in blazers dot the side walks, and ladies who lunch sit in white-linen restaurants clad in their cashmere and pearls.

                                  The most exquisite of homes can still be found on Fifth Avenue, coveted for their picture-perfect views of and proximity to the urban oasis of Central Park.

                                  The cultural life is as rich as the neighbourhood’s stalwarts, with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and Whitney Museum all within close range. From Holly Golightly’s cherished Tiffany & Co. window to the designer boutiques lining Madison Avenue, the neighbourhood has plenty to offer those looking to lighten their purses.

                                  Not all of the Upper East Side is subject to the whims and ways of the 1%, however. Move further east from Madison Avenue and you’ll notice a distinctly more youthful vibe, with more affordable rent and laid back pubs drawing green New Yorkers to the area.
