An exciting opportunity awaits those seeking a townhome on one of the most charming, tree-lined landmarked streets on the East side.This 20' wide townhouse is located in the Historic Treadwell Farm District, a sanctuary of four city blocks comprised of three, four and five story homes each with its own beautiful garden.
226 East 62nd is a classic house designed by architect William Morris Hunt and built in the mid 1800's. The property has been divided into two two-bedroom duplex apartments and can be easily combined to a single-family house once again. The lower duplex is entered at street level, and offers a large, windowed, eat-in kitchen, half bath, open dining room and a very gracious 18'x25' sun filled southern living room with a wood burning fireplace that leads to an enormous 20'x39' south garden. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a large bathroom and a luxurious windowed dressing room. There is also an expansive second bedroom and bath on this floor of the garden duplex.
The Upper Duplex's first floor has a generous living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a setback 18' x 10' terrace overlooking the charming gardens of all the Treadwell's Farm buildings. A large dining room and a windowed kitchen complete the floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with stunning wood paneling and a wood-burning fireplace and two baths - both with skylights allowing for plenty of natural light. Completing the floor is a windowed laundry and storage room, easily transitioned to a third bedroom. The house has four wood-burning fireplaces each with a beautiful antique mantle.
Additional air rights are available to build either into the garden or possibly a setback room and terrace on top of the upper duplex.
