A classic townhouse built in 1910, 161 East 74th Street is located on an elegant tree-lined Upper East Side block. Featuring an elevator with every-level access, a large rear garden and a sunny roof terrace, this 6-floor, 7-bedroom 5.5 bath residence provides gorgeous light from both its south-facing 20' façade and its gigantic north bay and atrium windows. Encompassing 6,800 sq ft, the house opens at the parlor floor, where a spacious dining room and kitchen are paired with a light-filled living room, both rooms with working fireplaces. An enormous bay overlooks and opens onto a balcony which descends to the charming rear garden patio. A study and master bedroom are located on the third floor, the latter featuring a commodious dressing room. Three more bedrooms are located on the fourth floor, one with ensuite bath, while the fifth floor holds two bedrooms and a wonderful double-height atrium room with full wet bar: with its northern exposure, this space would make an ideal artist's studio. The sixth floor, currently a gym, also incorporates the south-facing roof-deck, ideal for both entertaining and relaxing. The garden level has served as professional home office space and as part of a renovation could easily do so again; it includes the utility spaces, a living/dining area and kitchenette, full bath and bedroom, all privately accessible and ready for use as either servant's quarters, a guest residence or a rental apartment. High ceilings, three working and two decorative fireplaces, a garden-facing balcony and enormous windows throughout round out the architectural features. Close to Madison Avenue shopping, the Museum Mile, Central Park and public transport, 161 East 74th Street represents a singular opportunity to create a truly one-of-a-kind home.
