This estate offers convenient proximity to Central Park and world-renowned museums. Manhattan’s finest private schools, high-end shopping, and fine dining are just moments from your door.
Delano & Aldrich, a prominent architectural firm known for their Georgian and Federal-style residences, schools, and clubs, designed 15 East 88th Street in 1920. William Delano and Chester Aldrich met while drafting plans for the New York Public Library when they worked for Carrère & Hastings and both went on to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
The timeless facade impresses from the street with red brick laid in the English bond style, and three arches adorn the entrance with ornamental wrought-iron fencing. The Juliet balcony on the second level is an artful architectural element. The residence features a serene south-facing garden and a private 800 SF+/- rooftop with a living and dining area with city views.
This townhouse offers impeccable living space across six floors with soaring ceilings, intricate custom molding, and marble and wood floors throughout. A sweeping staircase greets guests on the garden level, leading to the exquisite mahogany library on the second floor. Long elegant casing windows embellish each room, and 9 wood-burning fireplaces are situated throughout the mansion.
