Sect: Upper East Side
This five-story Neo-Georgian home was built in 1914 by architect Herbert M. Baer for Julius Goldman, a prominent corporation lawyer and son of Marcus Goldman, founder of Goldman Sachs. Born in Philadelphia, Julius was educated at Heidelberg and Columbia Universities and one of the founders of the the Federation for the Support of Philanthropic Societies. The brick facade is set above a rusticated stone ground floor with a broad round-arched central entry, a bracket acting as a keystone, and a supporting balcony in front of the second story windows. Plaques with garlands are set above the side fenestration of the ground floor. There are large round-headed windows with stone sills and keystones on the third and fourth floors as well as cornice on blocks with handsome carved moldings, and a set back fifth story mansard roof. Set in one of Manhattan's most desirable townhouse blocks, the lot spans 20 ft. x 100 ft. Comprising approximately 7,100 sq. ft., the building is built almost full except for the courtyard/garden area located in the southwestern portion of the lot. 10,000 sq. ft. of buildable square footage is available, subject to what is allowable in a Landmark District. The first two floors are commercially zoned, offering a rare opportunity to create an art gallery, office or corporate headquarters with residence/residential units above. Alternatively, all can simply be reconfigured back to a splendid single-family home. The double-gated front vestibule of the ground floor allows for additional security. Its entry gallery is currently used as a reception area that can easily be transformed to a charming foyer of a home. Next are rooms that are currently being utilized as a conference room and a huge rear office with access to the garden/courtyard. The second floor consists of a front living room with arched windows, a wood burning fireplace with a beautiful marble mantle, and detailed moldings. The cavernous rear room can easily be a formal dining room with butler's pantry. Still, ceilings measuring nearly 12 feet could also work splendidly for those requiring commercial gallery space. The spacious third floor rear room enjoys a balcony, while the front office features coffered ceilings and a wood burning fireplace with original mantle. The extension in the fourth floor rear provides a fascinatingly different perspective to the west through to its bay window. On the Fifth Floor, a large terrace is located off the wood-paneled library. The cellar--housing multiple storage rooms, mechanicals and a kitchenette--is built full and enjoys rare 8'3" ceilings. It also has a window and has direct access to the courtyard/garden. The elevator services all floors except the cellar.
