Amenities and special features of this apartment

Located on one of the Upper East Sides most beautiful blocks in the historic Treadwell Farm District, 218 East 62nd Street is a handsome, 5 story, 18.75 foot wide red brick and marble townhouse possessing the utmost charm and understated elegance. Originally built in 1871 by J&G Ruddell builders for architect F.S. Barns and later thoughtfully expanded and redesigned by a distinguished business executive for contemporary living. This home has the distinction of being the only townhouse on the block with a curb-cut garage, a very rare commodity.<br><br>Currently designed with formal living in mind, this home offers an exceptional level of privacy. One arrives to the residence though an impressive proper foyer which gives way to the generous and naturally lit receiving area, leading to the main living and entertaining area. The focal point of this section of the home is the floor to ceiling, wide and curved bay windows overlooking the enchanting 500 square foot backyard garden, complete with a calming fountain. The garden has been lovingly maintained and planted with beautiful trees and greenery. Southern sunlight abounds and creates the atmosphere of a French country home. The wood-burning fireplace of carved stone and the remarkable wood floors imported from Versailles speak to sophisticated formal entertaining. You will be awestruck by the grand scale of the rooms and extraordinary ceiling heights.<br><br>A handsome curved staircase leads to the second floor, which has a lovely, large, eat- in kitchen, adjoined by a maids room with its own private staircase and dedicated front service entry. The formal dining room, which comfortably seats 14 guests and is ideal for glamorous entertaining, has double glass doors which open onto a dining terrace overlooking the garden. The third floor consists of a true master suite, with high ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, 7 closets and a marble master bathroom with double sinks, a stall shower and deep Jacuzzi bathtub. On the North end of the floor is a classic wood paneled library, warm and rich with finely hand crafted shelving. The fourth floor offers two large bedroom suites which could easily be divided to create three or four bedrooms if desired. The top floor with a full wall of over-sized windows is the perfect office, gym or additional bedroom with large roof terrace and room to expand. The basement has a large laundry room and plenty of storage, including a temperature controlled wine cellar.<br><br>The acquisition of this exquisitely designed and maintained residence provides the discerning purchaser an opportunity to experience life in the heart of the Upper East Side.The Treadwell Farm Historic District is one of New Yorks oldest historic districts, named for the Treadwell family who owned the land in 1815. It is a neighborhood of tree-lined streets, well maintained individual houses and has an atmosphere of greenery due to the planting and flower boxes of individual owners. A feeling of cooperative goodwill pervades the area. The district is appreciated for the way it reveals the design aesthetic of the 1910s and 1920s, and for the unique charm of each house.
