Carnegie Hill, a neighborhood of the Upper East Side, is known for its good bones—much of the area lies within historic districts and is dominated by brownstones, townhouses, mansions and museums. This particular property, at 121 East 91st Street, is located on a leafy and residential block of impressive architecture. The townhouse, built at the turn of the century, is no less impressive. It’s been well-maintained from the outside and well-modernized from within. It is now on the market for $7.45 million after selling for $4.4 million back in 2003.

121 East 91st Street, townhouse,

This townhouse has a total of four bedrooms, five bathrooms, four floors and 4,054 square feet. And all of that space is downright elegant. Upon entering the parlor, you are greeted by high ceilings, a grand wooden staircase, a built-in window seat and the original wood-burning fireplace with an ornate mantle. The floor serves as both the dining and living room.

Many of the townhouse rooms are distinguished by those large windows and built-in seating, which allows for lots of light. Two of the three bedrooms are located on the third floor, and each have their own newly-renovated bathrooms and wood-burning fireplaces. This room, which faces south, has double closets, one of which conceals a built-in desk.

The entire fourth floor is dedicated to the master suite, which has double-height ceilings, huge windows, a custom-built walk-in closet and its own dressing area. The re-done master bathroom comes with marble mosaic tile, a soaking tub and separate rain shower. There is also a spiral staircase in the bedroom which leads to a private office area and a south-facing terrace.

Who wouldn’t love a sunny deck with lounge furniture right outside their office space? Our only concern is how you’d get anything productive done in an office like this.

That’s not the only outdoor space, as there is a back garden that you access through the downstairs kitchen. The backyard has its own tall elm tree, which is just as stately as the rest of the home. Because that’s how things go in a neighborhood like Carnegie Hill—impressive both inside and out.
