An integral part of the Turtle Bay Gardens Historic District, the Hunnewell Mansion presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a magnificent home unlike any other in New York City.

Established in 1918 by Charlotte Hunnewell and redesigned by architects Edward Dean & William Bottomley, Turtle Bay Gardens is a private enclave of 20 homes that share a common garden filled with mature trees, shrubs and multiple fountains. Steeped in history, notable past residents of Turtle Bay Gardens include Bob Dylan, Ruth Gordon, June Havoc, Katharine Hepburn, Garson Kanin, Henry Luce, Ricardo Montalban, Maxwell Perkins, Tyrone Power, Maria Bowen Chapin, Stephen Sondheim, Leopold Stokowski, and E. B. White.

Truly palatial in size, 226 East 49th Street was originally two homes that were combined by Charlotte Hunnewell to serve as her primary residence. Offering over 8000 sqft, and five floors of living space, the possibilities are endless for how this historic home can be reimagined. From the street, the home displays a regency-style fa ade with Dutch gables, while the rear of the home exudes Mediterranean attributes. Notable features of the home include five wood burning fireplaces, curb cut with a one car garage and original millwork.

Currently architect ready, this one-of-a-kind home allows for endless options dependent on your needs.
