Sunny and historic Treadwell District 20'-wide Townhouse
Musical charm and stage presence abound, this wonderful home at 230 East 62nd Street is the former residence of prominent stage and screen actress Talullah Bankhead and also served as The New York School for Piano in the early 1900s. 230 East 62nd Street is a 20-foot wide 4BR/4.5BA Regency-style townhouse located in the Treadwell Farm Historic District of Manhattan's Upper East Side. This home exudes the soul, character and charm of its rich and illustrious history.
Entered through the welcoming marble-clad foyer, the first level features a recently updated eat-in kitchen with a chef's cook-top range and butcher block counter tops. To the rear of the kitchen is a charming and gracious dining room which opens to the lush garden. With nearly 1000sf of outdoor space, the ivy garden is tranquil and serene - a perfect setting for outdoor dining or reading a book in a hammock beneath the tree canopy.
The full floor parlor level is impressive and inviting - this sun-soaked grand room has two exposures, soaring 11' ceilings, a functional wood-burning fireplace, and even includes a treasured Van Cliburn-signed Steinway & Sons piano.
The third and fourth floors feature four bedrooms with either north or south exposures and boast ceiling heights of 10' and 9'3", respectively. Each of the bedrooms are generously proportioned with decorative fireplaces and are bathed in light and warmth from the over-sized, shuddered windows. All bedrooms have en-suite windowed baths and dedicated walk-in closets.
230 East 62nd exudes Regency flair with historically accurate details like exterior paint color and interior decorative elements throughout: crown moldings, door details, and internal staircase handrail and spindles. While preserving much of its old-world style and charm, the home has also been upgraded with new hardwood floors and modern conveniences of central air conditioning and recessed lighting.
Conveniently located, this home is in close proximity to many of the neighborhood's best dining, shopping, and transportation options. The townhouse rental at 230 East 62nd Street is a rare and unique opportunity awaiting the addition of your chapter to this wonderful and storied home.
