226 East 49th Street

THE HUNNEWELL MANSION

First offering. This rare 9000 SF residential treasure of immense scale exists behind a Regency-style façade with Flemish gables on New York's fabled Turtle bay gardens.

226 East 49th Street was built in the 1920's by a consummate New Yorker, Charlotte Hunnewell.

Charlotte's home and gardens are masterpieces inspired by her love for artists, her love of Italy and France, and her strong belief in the obligations of Aristocracy.

Charlotte was originally from the Back Bay in Boston and heir to a vast railroad and banking fortune. After coming to New York and longing to live amongst artists, writers, and intellectuals, she purchased all the houses on the north side of 48th & south side of 49th Streets, collaborated with the architects Edward Dean & William Bottomley to create one of New York's most attractive residential enclaves.


The most outstanding achievement of the development was to connect all the gardens in a setting that feels like a fairy tale.

The house is 38 feet wide and five stories with a garage.

The current configuration allows for many different uses and possibilities. The property is in architect ready condition and can be viewed in person by appointment.
