Description of Sage House at 4 Lexington Avenue

Sage House was built in 1913 for the Russell Sage Foundation, a social welfare nonprofit that was an early advocate of social work and urban planning. Renowned architect Grosvenor Atterbury designed the building in the style of a Florentine Renaissance palazzo and included vaulted ceilings with a rough-cut red sandstone faade with carved decorative shields. It was converted to residential use in 1975, and residents have access to a 24-hour doorman, live-in resident manager, laundry room, bike room, and storage. The building is pet-friendly, allows up to 80% financing, and permits pied-a-terres and gifting. The building also has a liberal subletting policy available after 1 year of ownership with board approval.

Sage House is located at 4 Lexington Avenue near fine dining, the Gramercy Park Hotel, Union Square Park, Madison Square Park, and the transportation options near each.
