The 25-foot-wide carved limestone mansion at 35 East 68th Street on the Upper East Side is a standout even on a block lined with historic architecture. The 13,000-square-foot Beaux Arts mansion, known as the Dunham House, was built as a private residence for physician Dr. Edward Kellogg Dunham and grain fortune heiress Mary Dows by Carrere & Hastings, the architecture firm who designed the Frick Collection and the New York Public Library. 6sqft featured this historic home in 2016. The two-bedroom duplex co-op is back on the market for $4 million.

The building was designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1981 after being converted into apartments in 1977. The second-story duplex lies behind arched French windows, accented with the original Tiffany & Company stained glass. The home boasts an impossibly grand living room with ceilings just shy of 14 feet. Lined with the original hand-carved wooden detail, the room features a gorgeous marble mantle.

A sunken eat in kitchen is energized by a checkerboard-patterned marble floor. A custom built-in oven, range and refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher stand ready for small dinners or a feast.

On the upper floor, the master suite contains a hidden wall of closets. A second bedroom, tucked behind the kitchen, also has an en-suite bath. There is an additional home office, currently configured as a third bedroom, which sits just above the kitchen with windows that overlook the living room space. In addition to plenty of storage, the apartment has in-unit laundry.
