Located on the 3rd floor of the Townhouse, overlooking the inner courtyard.
Owners on premises... fully serviced by an elevator lift.
Built in 1904 from Italian marble and Indiana limestone, The 5th Avenue Townhouse was erected by an old New York family as a crown jewel of the traditional Beaux Arts fashion.

Located on a tranquil New York City street and only 30 paces from Central Park, this elegant and aristocratic Townhouse was recently awarded the prestigious classification of Class 1 Landmark status.

Since 1994, the Owner's family have lived on the upper three floors of the building (floors 4, 5, 6).

The lower floors have been converted into completely separate and very private guest apartments (all with independent entrance).
They all are available for short- and medium-term let on a year-round basis.
The Owners and Maintenance Personnel live on Premises full time.
Daily maid and housekeeping service are included with every reservation (not optional - we insist on it..).
This listing is for The Deluxe Balcony Suite only !!!

1 king-size tempurpedic bed for 2 adults

LARGER GROUPS: If you need to accommodate larger groups, I have 2 other apartments located in the same building and they are also listed on HomeAway #808231.

Up to 14 guests can be accommodated among these 3 apartments.
Please see HomeAway listing 808231

We RESPOND to EVERY inquiry.

However, we do ask that you INCLUDE your Phone Number with country code.

Also, please be specific about the travelers.
For example:
- are travelers friends, family members, colleagues?
- are there any couples, elderly or children in the traveling party?

Please provide the age of children, perhaps state if boy/girl and if possible the approximate age of other travelers.

We need that information so that we can understand how we can make you most comfortable. - One of our other Homeaway #808231 listed apartments might work better for you !..

Finally, the more information you provide, the better.

And if we did not respond within 8 hours, then we did not receive your inquiry. - Please call or email.
