Those desiring a palatial residence know that with New York townhouses, a width of 40 feet is ideal in creating well proportioned, grand and voluminous rooms. This stately Neo-Renaissance style mansion is situated on the Upper East Side across from the Guggenheim Museum, and is located just steps off Fifth Avenue and Central Park.

Commissioned by Archer Milton Huntington in 1913-1915, and built by renowned architect Ogden Codman, this dignified 40-foot wide, 6-story residence is graced with a handsome, rusticated limestone base and tan brick facade, piano nobile with bracketed limestone balcony, wrought-iron railings, French doors and limestone modillioned cornice. Complementing its elegant faade, the capacious interiors are lined with original architectural articulation including doric pilasters, a marble oval staircase with cast iron railing, parquet de Versailles wood floors, Rosso Merlino, Hauteville and Belgian black marble flooring, beautiful ceiling moldings and extraordinary ornamental details.

Mr. Huntington and his wife Anna Hyatt took up residency at 3 East 89th Street, utilizing the ballrooms to entertain and showcasing Ms. Huntingtons sculptures and other works of art. Indicative of their philanthropic interests and the Huntingtons love of fine art, 3 East 89th Street, along with the adjoining properties, were generously donated by Mr. Huntington to the National Academy in 1940. As a whole, although 3 East 89th Street has been transformed over the years since its original incarnation, it still maintains its original splendor as one of the grandest and most gracious townhouses in the city.

The property is simply breathtaking, replete with its own curb cut for a garage, a feature completely unheard of in the historic district of Carnegie Hill. 3 East 89th Street awaits a discerning purchaser who desires the ultimate, palatial and regal New York mansion. The property is also uniquely suited for a school, diplomatic residence or institution.
