"Architects in planning rooms today have forgotten their faith in natural light. They forgot the endlessly changing qualities of natural light in which a room is a different room every second of the day."

Today we know that light produces savings in energy, heat and use of artificial light. Research has proven that natural light helps people to be more productive, happier, healthier and calmer.

Because if its exquisite location just east of Fifth Avenue in the middle of a block with low townhouses to the north and south, this house benefits from the most extraordinary light at all times of the day and during all seasons. In addition, as it is 20 feet wide, it has very high ceilings and exceptionally large windows which allows sunlight to flood into the building for ever changing light as the day passes.

The best possible location for a New York townhouse - short of directly on Fifth Avenue - is the park block between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, precisely where this building is located.

Between East 86 Street to E. 96th Street and Fifth avenue to Lexington Avenue lies the Carnegie Hill section of New York characterized by the low profile of its elegant buildings- with restrictions on height severely enforced. The area draws its name - and the townhouses their inspiration - from Andrew Carnegie's mansion of 64 rooms built in 1901 on Fifth Avenue one block to the south.

Located on Fifth Avenue at the north corner of East 92 Street, this extraordinary house built in 1908 at the height of the Beaux Arts period by C.P.H Gilbert was modeled after the Chateaux of the Loire valley of France. Its elegance seems to have been a model for some of the houses on this street, especially in creating the incredibly pleasing proportions of 9 East 92.

HISTORY OF 9 EAST 92Br>This house was built in 1890-1891 by the architect, Walter Reid, Jr. for his father in the Renaissance Revival style. It has an unusual curved full height bay extending to the top floor of the townhouse, which allows an exceptional amount of light to flood into the building. Low townhouses to the south and north further facilitate the abundant interior light.

This townhouse contains approximately 7,205 total INTERIOR gross feet, which includes a basement of 1,285 gross feet.The EXTERIOR space includes the front area, the garden, the deck, and the terrace and comprises approximately 934 gross feet.

The original details have been meticulously maintained. There are six fireplaces, all of which are wood-burning.

Fourth Floor

In these unusual days, a townhouse might need to become part office, part school and part oasis in the garden and terrace. Today, a home might need to become more like a universe - and there is no other candidate as bright and light as this one.
