171 East 70th Street

171 East 70th Street is ideally situated on a highly coveted tree-lined block in the heart of the Upper East Side. Noteworthy for its elegant Neo-Federal, red brick façade and impeccably maintained architectural character, this grandly scaled house is a superb example of classic turn of the century design. Distinguished by soaring ceiling heights and a graciously ascending staircase, the sun-filled residence boasts seven fireplaces, a lovely garden, an elevator and a sophisticated security system.

The approx. 5,100-sq.ft. townhouse is comprised of five stories plus a basement and offers ample space for comfortable family living and grand entertaining. Entry to the house is into a vestibule that opens to a large Gallery which leads to the fully equipped Eat-in Kitchen with access to a lovely planted garden. Adjacent there is a separate service entrance with sizable Mud Room. A Powder Room completes this floor. A gracious staircase ascends upstairs to an impressive south-facing Living Room with wood-burning fireplace. Opposite, the beautifully proportioned Dining Room enjoys delightful Garden vistas and is serviced by a Butler’s Kitchen and back staircase. Upstairs, a sun flooded library with wood burning fireplace offers lovely, leafy outlooks over East 70th Street. The private quarters are comprised of five very nicely sized bedrooms and four baths spread sensibly over three floors. Additionally, the basement level includes a laundry area and ample storage including a cedar closet and wine storage.
