An incredibly well-preserved neo-Grec style rowhouse completed in 1896, this home was designed by Schwarzmann and Buchman and constructed by owners John and Louis Weber and is a wonderful landmark residence. The brownstone and pressed brick exterior is still intact and its original characteristics are virtually unchanged. Standing four stories high, this grand single-family home boasts not only a prime location, but recognition by the Upper East Side Historic District for the “Best Restoration of a Non-Designated Building.” With a generous 3,600 square feet of living space, this residence features 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths plus a carpeted finished basement with a full bath, kitchenette, wine cellar, office, and mechanical room housing a Peerless gas-fired furnace and 2 50-gallon Rheen hot water heaters. Its tastefully designed interior is complemented by such amenities as original Chevron hardwood floors, wood door frames and spiral staircases, as well as custom-built bookshelves, beautiful stained glass, and five working fireplaces that add ambiance and character. Stylish baths are enhanced by marble or ceramic tile floors, with the latter also gracing the kitchen and solarium. Taxes:$23,000. Days on the Market: 60. Last Asking Price: $6,700,000.
