Nothing speaks more truth of a New York City mansion than a proper entrance which emotes a sense of heft and a welcoming arrival; soaring ceilings creating voluminous rooms, and as is with everything in real estate location, location, location. Fabulously situated on a premier block of the Upper East Side's Gold Coast between Fifth and Madison Avenues, this palatial 22-foot wide townhome is the tallest townhome on the block, towering above all the others around it. Built circa 1904 by architects Schwartz and Gross (renown for building The Mark and The Surrey hotels), A grand, solid-bronze gated entrance leads into an elegant entry vestibule which opens into a stately marbled reception gallery with an impressive wood-burning fireplace and original mosaic tiled floors that have an added European patina. A white marble staircase graciously curves its way to the upper floors. Beyond the reception gallery, through a private door, leads to what was formerly three professional offices. For 24 years, this majestic limestone mansion served as a family compound for its European owner, affording seven private living areas including the Fifth and Sixth Floors combined as a separate penthouse. This allowed for extended family and close friends to live together under the same roof and yet, living separately with a certain amount of privacy. The home's grand scale and impressive potential to be reconfigured into a full, single family mansion is apparent on each floor's 10 to 13 foot ceilings and extra-wide landing areas. There are twelve working wood-burning fireplaces including two outdoor fireplaces located on the Sixth Floor and Roof Terraces. An outdoor lift from the Sixth Floor Terrace ascends to the expansive Roof Terrace, providing a towering, 360 degree view of Manhattan's skyline. The expansive Lower Level is built-out the full length and width of the building lot and boasts unusually high ceilings, a laundry facility, staff room quarters, storage, mechanical storage and a vast vault under the sidewalk that partially extends underneath East 76th Street, supplemented by an outdoor lift to street-level. A rare and extraordinary opportunity to own an impressive lime-stone facade, beaux-art townhouse in a prime Gold Coast location with the structural bones to create an exquisite single family mansion of distinguished taste.

Approx Sq Ft: 3,850
Sect: Middle East Side
Built in 1899 and available for the first time in 53 years, 243 East 48th Street is a charming and cozy 5-BR townhouse on an elegant, tree-lined street, one of the lovely original brownstone townhouses which back up to and share the famous Turtle Bay Gardens. Turtle Bay Gardens, conceived by Charlotte Hunnewell Sorchan in 1918, is the exclusive common garden enclave covering the gardens of 9 houses on East 48th and 11 houses on East 49th Street between Second and Third Avenues. The gardens themselves are an oasis of mature trees and flowering shrubs that share a common path down the center, with a fountain copied from the Villa Medici and statues. It feels like a secret garden sanctuary dropped into the middle of Manhattan. A review from 1920 Architectural Record stated that "each owner has, visually speaking, surrendered a part and received back a beautiful whole." The Gardens have attracted a variety of personalities from its first purchaser, Maria Chapin, founder of The Chapin School, to Time Magazine co-founder Henry Luce, June Havoc, Garson Kanin, and screen legend Katherine Hepburn.

Up a flight of stairs is a large master bedroom with views of the garden in the back and a guest bedroom/music room in the front; both with beautiful parquet floors. There is a full bath between the two rooms. Up another flight is another large bedroom overlooking the garden with a full bath.

On this level, the 3rd, is also the entrance to the tenant's duplex apartment.

All electric has been upgraded to 200W and separated for the owner and tenant. The brownstone also has a 700sq ft basement.

Other features include three wood burning fireplaces, a Brownstone Stoop which was repaired and rebuilt in 2016 and newly refinished front doors harkening back to its original Victorian pedigree.
