Upper East Side townhome description

Ah, the Upper East Side!

From the edge of Central Park at 59th Street to the top of Museum Mile at El Museo del Barrio at 105th Street, this is New York City's Gold Coast. The neighborhood air is perfumed with the scent of old money and glamorous sophistication, with Champagne corks popping and high society puttin' on the Ritz. With its world-famous museums, elite schools, luxury boutiques, and proximity to Central Park, the family-oriented Upper East Side is home to some of the city's richest residents.

We have decided to rent our Upper East Side Townhouse.

Our spectacular four-bedroom triplex apartment is now available for rent by the week or by the month. Let me describe it to you:

When first you enter the enormous living room, you will be dazzled by the Italian fresco on the high ceiling (an homage to Grand Central Station’s restoration) framing a huge antique Venetian chandelier. In the center of the living room stands a working Vermont-marble fireplace with a French Empire mirror hanging over the mantle. Look out the window and view the 1000+ square foot, multi-level private garden with 5 person hot-tub spa.

Relax on the new celadon sofa or the matching loveseat with built in his & hers recliners, while listening to Mozart on the stereo or watching the evening news (or World Series?) on the 50” Panasonic Plasma TV set. (There are also handy DVD and separate VHS players). Not enough room for your company to sit? Well, there is also an Art Deco sofa between the 8 foot high windows.

Our open kitchen looks out over our dining room, large enough for sit-down dinners for 10 or more. The art deco Heywood Wakefield dining set beautifully complements the new hardwood floors. And there is a wood-burning fireplace in the dining room, too!

The primary master bedroom overlooks the garden and has a private entrance to the garden via the spa room. This bedroom has a 25 foot wall of built in closets and dresser in addition to the lovely new bleached wood furnishings and original wrought iron bed.

The second master bedroom is off the living room and shares its 15 foot ceiling height. This bedroom has an enormous 8 foot by 4 foot sunny window facing south, and boasts a Venetian chandelier and a Vermont marble fireplace.

In addition to this, there is a third child’s room together with a separate family/playroom/4th bedroom in the finished basement level, with a door and window to the garden.

And, of course, there is a separate private laundry room for your exclusive use.

We have a similar luxurious four bedroom duplex apartment also available. We urge you to ask for further information.

                          Relaxing after exploring the city! 10/29/2009

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:


                          New York City is truly the city that never sleeps! As soon as we landed, my friends & I were in awe of the streets lined with skyscrapers, the colorful autumn leaves in Central Park and the glittery lights of Times Square. We could not wait to get out on the town and experience everything the Big Apple had to offer.

                          When we arrived at the townhouse on the Upper East Side, we were greeted at the door by the housekeeper who graciously showed us around and made us feel right at home. We knew we’d be very comfortable during our visit as the townhome’s spacious four bedroom floor plan gave us each a room of our own. The fully-stocked kitchen was very convenient when we didn’t feel like eating out. The spacious living room upstairs with the large flat screen TV was a relaxing common space for sitting around and chatting. The attention to detail on the beautiful marble fireplace and the upper floor’s vaulted ceiling was incredible and we felt like we were staying in a true architectural work-of-art. Every morning, we took our coffee out on the back patio and enjoyed the New York breeze. After a long day of sightseeing, there was even a hot tub available for soaking my weary paws.

                          We loved staying on the Upper East Side as the neighborhood felt very safe and the local residents were friendly to tourists. With so many cafés, restaurants, shops and grocery stores within walking distance, we did not have to travel far to enjoy ourselves. The townhome was just 5 blocks away from Central Park, where we strolled the scenic tree-lined pathways and watched various street performers. All of New York’s most popular attractions including Times Square, The Statue of Liberty, The Empire State Building, and Rockefeller Plaza were easily accessible via the subway.

                          New York City was such an exhilarating city to visit that I’m already planning another trip there next year. This Rocky Mountain Bear just loves the excitement of the big city and I know you will too. But don’t just take my word for it; go experience it yourself!

                          Year Purchased: 1975

                          About the owner: I am a retired RN and my husband is a retired banker. We decided to raise our kids in the 'big city' so that we could give them all the cultural and social benefits that a giant metropolis like New York has to offer.

                          Why the Owner Chose Upper East Side:
                          We selected this property because it is in a great public school district and is only a short walk to the hospital where I worked for many years. My husband commuted by subway in the morning, but always walked home from Grand Central Station every day.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                          Our house is in Yorkville, a neighborhood originally settled by German immigrants. We still have several good German restaurants and bakeries to add to the hundreds of other restaurants as well. The neighborhood is so nice that the city maintains a private mansion for the Mayor just two blocks away. Be sure to visit his house, Gracie Mansion, when you come on your next visit.
