121 East 91st Street - Carnegie Hill, New York
Located on one of the prettiest blocks in Carnegie Hill, this elegant townhouse at 121 East 91st Street was built at the turn of the century. This beautiful tree-lined stretch of East 91st Street is extremely quiet and residential. The property offers three generous bedrooms plus maid's room/guest room, five full baths, and five wood-burning fireplaces. Beyond the elegant façade and steps up to the parlor level, you are greeted by a grand foyer entrance with soaring ceilings, wooden staircase, and a cozy built-in window seat to capture the streaming, south-facing sunlight from the bay windows at the front of the home. The spacious, full-floor parlor serves as both a living and dining area, with original wood-burning fireplace and ornate mantle. The formal dining space overlooks the property's beautiful garden. Stairs lead down to the first floor into a large kitchen, done in 'rustic-chic' style, complete with terracotta floors, wood-burning fireplace, wood countertops, ample custom cabinetry and a farmhouse sink. An oversize Viking Professional stove, range and hood, stainless Viking Professional refrigerator and freezer and stainless Bosch dishwasher provide a sleek and modern contrast. From the kitchen you can access the garden, with stone pavers and a gas-line BBQ grill. A stately elm tree offers shade in the summer to enjoy outdoor dining. Also on the garden level is a renovated marble full bath as well as a guest room/den. A separate entrance to the garden level from the street affords privacy if this wing were to be used for staff.
