Description

If you are looking for a truly unique and pin-drop quiet space in which to escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC, and easily work from home, then look no further than this charming, pre-war 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom duplex filled with character and highlighted by dramatic 21' ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, and a delightful patio. With the comfortable combination of a European chalet mixed with fabulous Victorian architectural features, this one of a kind home possesses the charming custom details one would be accustomed to finding in a vacation home, without the 3 hour drive or 6 hour flight! Upon entering, one is immediately wowed when taking in the scope of the soaring ceilings from the balcony overlooking the downstairs living room.

Upstairs, there is a large open eat-in kitchen with striking ironwork and original hardware encasing six beautiful Tudor style bay windows affording the ideal backdrop for upgrades. On this same upper floor, down a separate hall, is the master suite, accented by two lovely stained glass windows in the entry. It is the kind of bedroom one expects to curl up in at a country home upstate, with a decorative fireplace and a wall of full floor to ceiling closets.

The large master bath features a claw-foot tub in addition to a glass door shower. Following the staircase down to the lower level of this stunning townhouse apartment, you are welcomed by a wood burning fireplace with a gorgeous marble mantle. This is also where you can find the entrance through wood doors and a crafted wrought-iron gate to your own outdoor oasis reminiscent of Italy or Spain, and ideal for unwinding with a morning cappuccino or an evening Rioja.

This lower level also features a large living room with beautiful wooden built-in shelving, made to highlight your books and art collectibles. It is also where you will find two good sized additional bedrooms as well as the renovated second full marble bathroom. One of the extraordinary things about this beautiful space is that one can enjoy living in it with its current warm vibe, or it can be renovated to become an ultra modern showplace. 35 East 68th Street, aka the Dunham House, is an architecturally stunning 25' wide pre-war Beaux-Arts limestone mansion that was designed by Carrere & Hastings in 1901- the same architects who designed the NY public library and Frick Mansion.

This boutique 8 unit coop is pied-a-terre friendly, considers pets on a case by case basis, and has a roof deck, laundry and storage. 75% financing allowed. The magnificent townhouse is situated just off Madison Avenue, is 1 block from Central Park, and is surrounded by the finest in high end shopping and dining.
