The fairy tale of New York City is constantly unfolding, and this one-of-a-kind Upper East Side townhouse will surely set the scene for a romantic urban happily ever after. This home, originally built in 1893 by A. B. Ogden and Son, is located at 5 East 93rd Street, a stone’s throw away from 5th Avenue and Central Park. Within the last few years the entire property was completely restored, and the elaborate detailing that went into the design of this home is immaculate. The listing price for this property is $17.95 million—and yep, if you’ve been following, it’s dropped almost $2 million from its February listing price.
The elegant residence features a bow-faced facade and sits grandly amid a block of picturesque row houses. The property is 21.5 feet wide and boasts approximately 6,800 square feet of space. With five floors of living space plus a basement and roof level, it houses seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, game rooms, terraces, a greenhouse and an enchanting landscaped garden.
The entire home is filled with exceptional light and the location provides partial views of beautiful Central Park.
The home’s current owner is master floral designer Lynn Jawitz who originally purchased the property in 2002 for $4.25 million. That same year she embarked on an extensive facelift, restoring the marble columns, ornate molding and the detailed floor. When she put the house back on the market in 2011 it was listed at $24.5 million, but without a buyer that number has gradually been reduced over the years.
A new price tag of $17.95 million may be enough for a storybook ending for one lucky New Yorker.
