Description

Originally constructed in 1872 by noted Gold Coast Architect, John G. Prague, and later reimagined by famed architect R.D. Graham in 1901 and used for his private residence, 163 East 64th Street is perfectly situated on one of the most desirable tree-lined, townhouse blocks on the Upper East Side.

At 20’-wide, and approximately 8,000 square feet on four levels plus finished windowed basement, 163 East 64th Street is built in Neo-Georgian style with an exterior facade of raked limestone and red clay brick, and an elegant entry forecourt with separate service entrance and radiant heat sidewalk for effortless snow removal.

Noted as one of the most distinguished townhouses in New York, 163 East 64th Street features 15 well proportioned rooms with impressive 90’ depth floorplates, 5 bedroom suites, 8 fireplaces, 8 marble baths, a designer elevator servicing all levels including the European designed rooftop garden, original English pine library dating back to 1872, a lavish Belle Epoque bar area with Lalique-styled glass ceiling providing for stunning interior illumination, and a wonderful Louis XIV-style living room with ten canvas panels inspired by the Fragonard Room of the Frick Collection.

Additional features include a full-height windowed basement with a temperature controlled wine room, back-up generator, cedar closets, a private gymnasium, and state-of-the-art AV systems.

East 64th Street between Lexington & Third Avenues is unique and distinct with 25 private townhouse residences on the north and south sides of the block. The neighbors of the street established its own Block Association in 1999, “East 64th Street Lexington to Third Avenue Neighbors Association Inc.,” which is well heeled, funded by its members and devoted to maintaining and continuously improving the aesthetic of the street. Recent additions include Bishop Crook Lampposts, metal halide luminaries, and updated tree pits and landscaping.

Current zoning permits additional square footage (appx. 1,400 sq. ft.) to be added as a 5th floor with a private 6th floor deck above.
