Built in 1904 from Italian marble and Indiana limestone, The 5th Avenue Townhouse was erected by an old New York family as a crown jewel of the traditional Beaux Arts fashion.

Located on a tranquil New York City street and only 30 paces from Central Park, this elegant and aristocratic Townhouse was recently awarded the prestigious classification of Class 1 Landmark status.

Since 1994, the Owner's family have lived on the upper three floors of the building (floors 4, 5, 6).

They all are available for short- and medium-term let on a year-round basis.

The most wonderful and enjoyable New York stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two energetic boys from Brisbane, Australia were looking for an apartment that would provide a great base for our holiday in Manhattan. We were looking for an elegant and spacious property that would allow us to feel comfortable and not live on top of each other like in a hotel room. From the very beginning I was impressed with Julia and her willingness to help. The welcome was inviting and made us feel at ease. After travelling for almost two weeks prior to arrival the suitcase had accumulated some clothing in desperate need of a wash and within 24 hours our clothes were washed, folded and sitting on our bed upon our return from a day out.

The first night was spent at the baseball out in Queens and Julia arranged a town car to pick us up after the game which was great with a tired family wanting to get home.

Like all other accommodation there are some table stakes that are just crucial to a good experience. This starts with the hospitality of the host and the appearance of the apartment which both were fantastic. Then for the two kids the Wi-Fi was fast and consistent, and for me and the world cup being on and hot summer days we needed a great tv and an air conditioner to spend some down time after a long day of playing in central park. However, the most important aspect of a good holiday is a happy wife and that means shopping. The location is just terrific with a short stroll to central park and a neighbourhood of cafes, restaurants and shops. The proximity to Madison avenue is great and the boutiques went on for miles.

However, two things stand out for us on our holidays and in this case both were big ticks. The beds were large and very comfortable and the showers were hot and strong.

We went to Boston for a few days and were able to leave our suitcases in storage here which was very convenient.

All in all i highly recommend this accommodation. We stayed in both the balcony suite and the terrace suite and both were of excellent quality. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful spring stay in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 2 childs + nanny) from Brussels and stayed in this wonderful townhouse just off Central Park for overall 9 nights this April. We occupied the Deluxe European Suite, which was perfect for our needs and could comfortably sleep all of us. The suite being situated at the back of the house facing the courtyard, it was very quiet and we could hear the birds sing throughout our stay.

The suite was very well equipped with all amenities necessary for a family of 5 including a 3 year old (cot & child seat).

Housekeeping was daily and included free laundry.

But the real advantage of the 5th Avenue Townhouse is the location! Only a few steps away from Central Park in a very quite street, just at entry gate to the Park. On top of that a wonderful playground is right at the entrance too.

Julia and her husband were always available and very efficient in helping and providing any information to us.

What appeared to be a rather complicated process at the beginning, the fact that Julia wants to personally speak with all her potential guests, is really an advantage in the end, as it creates the basis for a wonderful stay by addressing all relevant questions upstream. For the rest the reservation process was very efficient and streamlined.

We can only warmly recommend this location!

The owners are always available to answer questions and make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. The townhouse was impeccably clean and everything was in excellent working condition.

The location is perfect for museums and Central Park. The neighborhood is easily accessible to great shopping and boutique establishments.

Beautiful space with someone readily available to help with all your needs

  • 5 of 5

Julia went above and beyond the expectation to ensure we felt comfortable and at home in our space. We were traveling with two small children (10 months and 2 years) and were provided appropriate sleeping arrangements for both of them. Laundry was provided any time we needed it done. Julia makes herself available for any question you could have and is very attentive to detail. The space itself was beautiful with a ton of natural light and high ceilings. When we find ourselves back in NYC, we will be sure to stay here again!

Wow! I want to stay her FOREVER!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy that we found this place. My husband, myself and our four kids (14, 12, 10 and 9) had such a great experience. We stayed in the Grande White Loft, which was perfect for us. Each child had his/her own plush bed and my husband and I had a separate room with an amazingly comfortable bed. We spent the first day walking around the neighborhood, then walking to some tourist sights and going to great restaurants within a few blocks of this residence. The next day we explored Central Park, which is a few feet away, and we walked to a few museums. We were so appreciative that Claudio saved us a FREE parking spot right outside the door. We didn't have to touch the car again for our entire stay, nor did we have to pay for NYC parking overnight! Julia and Claudio were such great hosts and the apartment had everything that we needed. We are looking forward to another chance to stay in this amazing residence that made us feel as though we were true Manhattanites!
