Offered for sale for the first time together are two sophisticated and landmarked townhouses designed by the renowned architectural firm of Delano & Aldrich, and once owned by prominent businessmen George F. Baker, Jr. (who built the houses in 1929 and 1931) and later by DLJ co-founder, Richard H. Jenrette, the noted preservationist.

Delano & Aldrich were the leading architects for New York's elite during the first three decades of the 20th century, including the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Astors, and Whitneys. Intact urban residences by the firm are exceedingly rare, many that survive having been converted to institutional use. Perfectly preserved, with spectacular proportions and original architectural details, fixtures and fittings, the houses include a double-height five-car parking garage - one of the largest private residential garages in the city - a majestic garden-facing classical colonnade, and elegant interior details like a stunning round staircase and an oval dining room.

67 and 69 East 93rd Street capture the essence of a timeless era and a gracious urban lifestyle. This is the rarest opportunity to purchase an important part of New York City's architectural and social history - and yet, the houses together are as relevant and desirable to a twenty-first century buyer wanting the finest New York City residence, as they were to the original family that built them. With a remarkable 47-feet in width and approximately 12,000 square feet above grade, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own one of the few remaining Delano & Aldrich residences in New York, and to create one of the largest and finest townhomes in the city.

Enter 67 East 93rd Street and arrive in the elegant formal entry hall, with 10.5-foot ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, original marble floors, and a seating area. Off this gracious entry are two elegant powder rooms, one with a small lounge. Through a barrel vaulted passageway, pass the original Otis elevator, beautifully clad in mahogany paneling with brass fittings, and arrive at the spectacular central stair hall. One of the most beautiful residential staircases in all Manhattan soars four stories up to a round skylight, bathing the center of the house in natural light, and from which a dramatically suspended lantern hangs down to the ground level. Further down the hall, is an extraordinary oval dining room grand enough for the largest of dinner parties, with decorative marble inlay floors, a handsome fireplace, three floor to ceiling casement windows, classical pilasters, and wall niches for sculpture. Adjacent is a large serving kitchen, tucked away behind the hall, and opposite a hidden door leads to the lower level. The cellar has an enormous kitchen, a breakfast room, laundry room, storage, mechanical rooms and a stair to the front service entrance.

The second floor, originally configured as staff rooms, is currently being used as a full floor library and office, and also has the original walk-in silver safe, and two full bathrooms.

Ascend the graceful curved stair to the third floor, and discover the most delightful entertaining spaces, boasting 12-foot ceilings and two grandly scaled parlor rooms, each with perfect proportions and enormous floor to ceiling windows. Both have wood-burning fireplaces, the front parlor with classical pilasters and the rear with a bowed 3-window bay. The floor is completed by an elegant windowed bar, a bath, as well as a huge central stair landing with French doors leading to a serene interior courtyard that connects to number 69. The fourth floor is home to two full width bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and plentiful storage.

The street facade of 69 East 93rd is defined by an iconic arched portico with a distinctive wrought iron lantern hanging above. The curb cut leads to enormous apple-green double doors that swing open to reveal a vast, almost 1200 square-foot, double-height garage with parking for at least 5 vehicles. Alternatively, create a half basketball court and parking for 2-3 cars. Behind the garage is a huge room with a skylit extension that would make a perfect eat-in chef's kitchen with a great family room, and could easily connect to the oval dining room and serving kitchen of 67.

The parlor floor of 69 East 93rd Street has a remarkable full-width corner living room, with 14.5-foot ceilings and an elaborately carved wood burning fireplace - this room could ideally connect to the front parlor of 67, for a most elegant and expansive suite of entertaining rooms. By opening the oversized windows and a small jib door, there is access to the colonnade, providing a unique view across the leafy courtyard to 75 East 93rd Street (another Delano & Aldrich masterpiece). The hallway has extraordinary eastern light and exposures through two more enormous windows opening to the colonnade. This floor also has a small dining room and kitchen, a den, office, bedroom,
