STUNNING PRIVATE 19TH CENTURY MANSION IN MANHATTAN

Upper East Side Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome with TWO 4 Bedroom Apartments (Sleeps 6-18)

Ah, the Upper East Side!

From the edge of Central Park at 59th Street to the top of Museum Mile at El Museo del Barrio at 105th Street, this is New York City's Gold Coast. The neighborhood air is perfumed with the scent of old money and glamorous sophistication, with Champagne corks popping and high society puttin' on the Ritz. With its world-famous museums, elite schools, luxury boutiques, and proximity to Central Park, the family-oriented Upper East Side is home to some of the city's richest residents.

We have decided to rent our Upper East Side Townhouse.

Our spectacular four-bedroom triplex apartment is now available for rent by the week or by the month. Let me describe it to you:

When first you enter the enormous living room, you will be dazzled by the Italian fresco on the high ceiling (an homage to Grand Central Station’s restoration) framing a huge antique Venetian chandelier. In the center of the living room stands a working Vermont-marble fireplace with a French Empire mirror hanging over the mantle. Look out the window and view the 1000+ square foot, multi-level private garden with 5 person hot-tub spa.

Relax on the new celadon sofa or the matching loveseat with built in his & hers recliners, while listening to Mozart on the stereo or watching the evening news (or World Series?) on the 50” Panasonic Plasma TV set. (There are also handy DVD and separate VHS players). Not enough room for your company to sit? Well, there is also an Art Deco sofa between the 8 foot high windows.

Our open kitchen looks out over our dining room, large enough for sit-down dinners for 10 or more. The art deco Heywood Wakefield dining set beautifully complements the new hardwood floors. And there is a wood-burning fireplace in the dining room, too!

The primary master bedroom overlooks the garden and has a private entrance to the garden via the spa room. This bedroom has a 25 foot wall of built in closets and dresser in addition to the lovely new bleached wood furnishings and original wrought iron bed.

The second master bedroom is off the living room and shares its 15 foot ceiling height. This bedroom has an enormous 8 foot by 4 foot sunny window facing south, and boasts a Venetian chandelier and a Vermont marble fireplace.

In addition to this, there is a third child’s room together with a separate family/playroom/4th bedroom in the finished basement level, with a door and window to the garden.

And, of course, there is a separate private laundry room for your exclusive use.

We have a similar luxurious four bedroom duplex apartment also available. We urge you to ask for further information.

I am a retired RN and my husband is a retired banker. We decided to raise our kids in the 'big city' so that we could give them all the cultural and social benefits that a giant metropolis like New York has to offer.

Jane or Lloyd purchased this townhome in 1975

We selected this property because it is in a great public school district and is only a short walk to the hospital where I worked for many years. My husband commuted by subway in the morning, but always walked home from Grand Central Station every day.

Our house is in Yorkville, a neighborhood originally settled by German immigrants. We still have several good German restaurants and bakeries to add to the hundreds of other restaurants as well. The neighborhood is so nice that the city maintains a private mansion for the Mayor just two blocks away. Be sure to visit his house, Gracie Mansion, when you come on your next visit.

GREAT LOCATION! PERFECT FOR A BIG GROUP

  • 5 of 5
This rental is perfect for a large group! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The location was ideal: quiet at night but vibrant during the day, close to Central Park, close to public transporation and many restaurants and shops within walking distance.

The Carl Schurz Park a couple blocks down was very pleasant. Lots of playgrounds there for little ones.

The communication before and after (we left something behind) with the owners was great. They were attentive to our questions and prompt with replies to all our emails.

Highly recommend this rental! We plan to stay there again in the future!

GREAT PLACE FOR A LARGE GROUP

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here in July 2013 with a group of 8 Canadian teachers who were celebrating a retirement and some special birthdays with a trip to New York. We loved it. The house is conveniently located a short distance from the Lexington subway line (easily accessed by surface bus) in a beautiful safe neighbourhood not too far from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Gracie Mansion. There are a number of excellent pubs and restaurants within a few blocks and it is close to a beautiful park on the East River. There were enough bedrooms and beds for 2 couples and 4 single people (3 women and 1 man) and 3 bathrooms (with showers and laundry facilities) were enough for the group. The house was clean and inviting with lots of charm & character, and the owners & caretaker were very helpful. It was a great place for a diverse group to come and go at will during the day and then meet up in the evening in the spacious living room for a drink before heading out to dinner. For some skeptical members of the group it was their first experience with a vacation rental and we all loved it. We would definitely come back.

COUSIN TRIP

  • 5 of 5
I live in the neighborhood and reserved the townhouse for three nights for a cousin reunion. It was great to have my family close by and not in some midtown overpriced hotel where there would be two to a bed. The townhouse enabled my family to experience what it is like to live in NYC and enjoy neighborhood restaurants and bars. The caretaker was friendly and accommodating. The location gives many transportation options - bus, subway, taxi.

NYC TRIP

  • 5 of 5
The triplex rental was spacious, comfortable and close to many NYC sites. The convenient location made it easy to take the subway, cab or walk to our destinations. Central Park along with many museums were within walking distance from the rental. The owners were friendly and willing to answer the many questions we had from transportation to closest grocery stores, etc. We arrived on a really warm day and it was nice to have the place cooled with air conditioning. I appreciated having a washer and dryer to use. There was a hot tub but it was rather warm out, so we did not take advantage of that perk. We used the private garden area almost every morning enjoying our morning coffee. And again when we returned from our daily events. We all had so much fun and would stay there again.

NOT A STUNNING PLACE

  • 1 of 5
We booked this house for a family of 8 adults and 4 kids for 4 nights thinking we would have bonding better. Nice location but not close to stunning by all means! On all the pictures online, one cannot find the picture of the many steep stairs to climb so our parents had a truly difficult time going up and down with my dad having a knee problem. NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU DO NOT LIKE TO CLIMB UP AND DOWN! We noticed on the first day that the temperature of the house was warm. We were in NY when the temperatures were on the upper 70's. NO AIR CONDITIONER AROUND! We told the housekeeper about it but no action was made. On the contract information given prior to booking, it said we would have control of the house temperatures! Fanning the kids to sleep because of the hot temperature is just NOT RIGHT! In addition, the children started to cough and have their asthma attacks. Most of the rooms do not have locks , the water temperature when taking a shower suddenly turns very cold or very hot, no dining place for everyone to sit in and eat together. The carpets and the runners were dirty and the closet on the third floor (where the iron board was), filled with linen on the floor. The towels prepared did not smell good and we had to wash them before using. We travelled in 13 states for our USA tour and paid the most money for this house but IT WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE for everybody in the group. To top that, the owner hang up the first day we called her and was VERY RUDE! Totally unprofessional. We feel like being robbed of our money!

Owner's Response: The only way I can think of to respond to this review, which is so out of line with all of the others, is to encourage future clients to read the other reviews and judge for themselves. The VRBO Bear had many nice things to say about our place!

COLLEGE REUNION GROUP

  • 4 of 5
Having never visited New York City with eight "senior" women, we took a chance renting this mansion and also staying in the upper east side. We have all decided that we made the best possible choice! The housekeeper met us there and was very friendly and even took us to the grocery store about 5 blocks away. The mansion was very clean, with every possible kitchen/bathroom necessity needed. The location was perfect, as we were away from the noisy, touristy sections of NYC, but could take a subway about one block away. We also ate at the Seahorse (excellent) and there were several other restaurants/bars nearby. Every question was answered by the owners prior to our visit. We seemed to congregate mostly in the kitchen/dining area, but the living room was also very comfortable. The upper bathroom was gorgeous; the lower one is older. All the sleeping accomodations were very clean with comfortable bedding. A lot of stairs, but we found that was not an issue. All in all, a VERY successful trip for us in an exciting, vibrant, friendly (yes, friendly) city!! I would recommend the mansion to anyone.
