Sect: Upper East Side
East 82nd Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues is known as the gateway to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is lined with fine houses. 9 East 82nd Street is one of a row of four with classical brick and limestone facades on the north side of the block. Numbered 7 to 13 , all were built in 1895.

This 25' building with five floors has a centered ground floor entrance with an imposing cast-iron door, a large vestibule, a generous entry hall and an elevator. It measures 9,016 square feet, according to the public record.

For many years, the house has housed art galleries, including La Boetie, which specialized in pre-war European art. The gallery owner Helen Serger bought the house in the early 1970's and moved her gallery here from Madison Avenue.

The present owner is an art historian, and living here, so near to the Met, has provided her with a strong link to the culture of the city. Interior features include the original bannister above the second floor with tooled spindles. The second-floor paneled living room boasts a large, unique stained-glass window with medical and musical motifs. It was designed by one of the earlier owners. Two terraces overlook a landscaped garden.

Ceiling heights are tall. On the staircase landings, ceiling heights were measured at 10' on the first floor, 12'8" on the second, 11'8" on the third floor, and 10'9" on the fourth.

The house presently has eight apartments, and all will be delivered vacant. Showings: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Sect: Upper West Side
Situated on a tree-lined block just off Central Park West, this magnificent 20-foot-wide, 5-story townhouse encompasses approximately 7,560 square feet (which includes a full basement) and approximately 975 square feet of outdoor space. Rich in history and architectural grandeur, it has been meticulously renovated and carefully restored, preserving the original 19th century details. The grand-scaled rooms of the residence are beautifully enhanced by soaring ceilings, tall doorways, crown moldings, hand-carved millwork, pocket doors, original shutters, herringbone hardwood flooring, seven fireplaces and a majestic mahogany staircase. In its current configuration, a separate apartment was created on the lower level, but the residence could easily be a single-family home.

Built in 1886, in Queen Ann style with Neo-Grec elements, this brownstone was designed by distinguished Manhattan architects Arthur M. Thom & James W. Wilson and built by James A. Frame. The architectural firm Thom & Wilson was renowned for the noteworthy homes they developed in the late 19th century, contributing to the special architectural and historic character of the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. The facade has bow front windows, carved ornamental designs and a wide box stoop.

Garden Level: Currently, the lower level of the home is set up as a separate apartment (living room, dining room, kitchen, 1-2 bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a washer/dryer) with its own entrance. This level could easily be converted to a kitchen/family room (please see rendering in photo series). The light is extraordinary and a set of glass doors opens up to a landscaped South-facing garden with lush plantings.

Parlor Floor: With a soaring 12-foot ceiling, the impressive parlor level includes a 34-foot Great Room with a fireplace with a hand-carved mantelpiece and original pocket doors. An elegant Formal Dining room with exquisite original wood paneling features a coffered ceiling and a fireplace and has double-doors made of leaded-glass windows opening onto a delightful planted terrace. There is also a windowed kitchen on this level and garden access via a staircase from the terrace.

Third Floor: Currently configured as a sumptuous master suite plus Library, there is a large bedroom, bowed window, two fireplaces, a sprawling dressing room, ample closets and a luxuriously-appointed marble bathroom.
