This three-story 1890 townhouse at 53 East 75th Street fits in perfectly with its neighbors on a classically elegant Upper East Side street just two blocks from Central Park. On the rental market for $35,000 a month, this tony triplex gives you over 4,000 square feet of living space, including an elevator and plenty of windows and sunlight, particularly from the kitchen’s wall of solarium windows–great for soaking up rays on winter days.
Historic charm gets a contemporary frame in this extra-wide townhome; currently set up as a three-bedroom, the very-uptown triplex (we’re assuming there is at least one other apartment within the townhouse) features three fireplaces and multiple Juliette balconies; it can be rented either furnished or unfurnished.
Starting at the typically grand parlor floor (there are 12-foot ceilings throughout the home), you’ll find a cozy living room, a gracious dining room, a guest bath and a meticulously renovated eat-in chef’s kitchen with cook-pleasing perks like two sinks (one is a nice big vintage-y farmhouse sink) and a stunning curved wall of solarium-style windows.
On the second floor is a sizable master bedroom with a fireplace and a spa-style en-suite bath, and a large additional living room/den, plus a smaller bedroom and bath. The third bedroom is tucked away on a mezzanine level located up a small flight of stairs.
You also get central steam heat, five-zone A/C and private laundry facilities; not bad for an old house–though at that price, it’s certainly expected.
