You are invited to discover your own exceptional private oasis right in the center of Manhattan. After an exciting and fun filled day of sightseeing, shopping, museums and theater you can escape from the fast pace and relax in peace and quiet...just steps away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Your private walled garden is perfect retreat for relaxing with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. Watch the squirrels scamper and hear the birds singing in the trees as you put your feet up and wind down.
Surprisingly this tranquil oasis exists right in central Manhattan on a beautiful tree lined residential block at East 30th Street and Park Avenue with convenient access to just about all you want to see and do. It's an easy walk to the Empire State Building (6 1/2 blocks), Macy's (7 1/2 blocks), the theater (about 15 blocks), Gramercy Park, the Farmer's Market at Union Square, The Village and the United Nations.
Soho is a quick ride south on the #6 subway which is just 2 1/2 blocks away. Or you can head north on the #6 to the Metropolitan Museum and Bloomingdale's. The #6 stops in Bloomingdale's basement. Park Avenue busses are 1/2 block away and run north and south. Lexington Avenue busses are 1/2 block away and run south. Of course this being New York, you can always hop into a taxi.
Wander inside your apartment and enjoy the romance and charm of exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, a fireplace and original oil paintings. The spacious living room offers matching sofas in classic muted colors. One opens into a comfortable queen size bed that sleeps two. A cushioned single Bahama bed is convenient for another guest.
A quaint 150 year old opaque glass wall separates the living room and bedroom. Pamper yourself with an excellent night's sleep and wake refreshed in the queen size bed with quality linens,a fluffy feather duvet and lots of pillows. There's plenty of room for all of your clothes and shopping sprees in a wall of custom fitted closets. The modern tiled bathroom has a small tub with shower and a built-in vanity for the sink and wrap-around mirrors.
A rare find in New York is the separate and full eat-in kitchen with large double door refrigerator/freezer with automatic ice maker, full stove with oven and full size dishwasher. The kitchen is nicely equipped with microwave, coffee pot, pots and pans, dishes, glassware and flatware.
The dining area with cushioned window seat overlooks the peaceful garden. If you don't feel like cooking, just order in from the many near by restaurants or have the grocery stores deliver.
An adjacent 2-room 1/2 bath duplex suite is available for large families. The small downstairs room is furnished as an office/library and has a queen size sofa bed. Private interior stairs lead to a large upstairs bedroom with 2 twin size beds that can be combined into a king size bed. A 1/2 bath is off of this room.
This is a no smoking apartment for your comfort. Smoking in the garden is always okay.
The apartment is one of three units in a private 4 story townhouse. It is on the garden floor...no stairs...in the back and is exceptionally quiet, clean, safe and secure. You'll find many extra modern details such as high hat lights in all of the rooms, a security buzzer to open the front doors and quality windows and doors. Furnishings were updated in December 2004. Ask for new photos.
It is said that the famous dancer Isadora Duncan once lived here. We haven't been able to confirm this, but like to believe that it is true. We hope that you will spend some time here, too.
