Located in the tony Upper East Side of New York City. (East 82nd and Second Avenue). This historic, 1870's brownstone is just five blocks straight East from the Metropolitan Art Museum and Central Park.

We are two streets away from Madonna's newly purchased $30 million mansion.
It is centrally located to transportation, museums, shops and cafes. It is a very charming block with mostly row-houses. If you ever saw the movie ''You've Got Mail'' with Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks...this is about as close as it gets. Our house is 2500 SF with Three bedroom and 2.5 bathrooms.

If you appreciate historic renovation than you will absolutely love this special home. Our 1870's Row House was near dilapidation. It took three years to return it back its original grandeur while adding top of the line upgrades and systems. It has central AC, security system, laundry room, Cable/Internet. The House has been featured in several home magazines.
The house is very functional and comfortable. While you could classify the renovation as museum quality, we made this a house to be lived in and enjoyed. The kitchen is the largest room in the house with counter seating for five. Off the kitchen is a comfortable sectional leather couch with a flat screen tv. In addition to the three bedrooms, there is a private office with plenty of desk space, and wireless internet.
We have a housekeeper who will clean twice a week. She is available (at extra cost) for daily maid service and/or child care.
* If requested, we will keep the house decorated for Christmas/New Years. We host a party earlier in the season where a florist decorates the home with fresh garland and a ten foot tree.
It is quite romantic with the wood burning fireplace.
We limit group size to seven adults. (exceptions for small children)
Our nightly rate is $1250. Our weekly rate is $7800 per week. Rates includes maid service. There are no additional fees or taxes.
We live in the house parts of the year and rent it out for the times we are gone. All personal items are stored away.
