Description

Located on the 4th and 5th floors, in one of Lenox Hill’s premier boutique cooperatives, this 6 room high-floor duplex overlooks the soon to be gorgeously enhanced Frick Museum grounds and has northwestern side views of Central Park. This sprawling residence reflects the timeless appeal of its late 1930s heritage with its fluid modern layout, beautiful herringbone hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace, and abundant natural northern and southern light. The transitional design of 4 East 70th Street can gracefully accommodate a modern, contemporary or traditional design aesthetic and encourages you to manifest the comfort and beauty that lie at the heart of your own personal style. Enter through the chic, expansive foyer which flows into the stylish corner Living Room and adjacent Dining Room with southern views of the lush townhouse gardens.

There is a convenient Powder Room with separate enclosed toilet nearby. The Dining Room connects to the windowed Kitchen which offers lots of counterspace, excellent cabinet space, and top of the line appliances for the chef - Miele appliances except for Whirlpool Microwave. The washer/dryer at the far end is not to be missed.

A large Staff Room adjoins the Kitchen, perfect for those who work from home. An elegant staircase leads you up to the expansive Primary Bedroom and 2nd Bedroom both with en-suite baths, abundant closet space and views over the Frick and a peek of Central Park. The second bedroom is currently used as a charming Library replete with gorgeous built-ins and integrated accent lighting to showcase your precious objects d’art. Built in 1937, 4 East 70th Street is on one of the most coveted blocks in Manhattan. Located across from the infamous Frick Collection between 5th and Madison Avenues, 4 East 70th Street is in a premier neighborhood of fine restaurants, excellent shopping and galleries.

The building was constructed with 37 units, 12 of which were original duplex apartments like 4/5A, which afford a high degree of privacy and specialization of interior space. The building is full service offering a 24 hour doorman, a live-in superintendent and individual storage units. A small pet is allowed with board approval.
