RENOVATED 20' WIDE UES SINGLE-FAMILY
124 East 64th Street is an elegantly renovated 20-foot wide, 5-story single-family townhouse, nestled on a beautiful tree-lined block between Park and Lexington Avenues. This gracious home affords approximately 6,840 square feet of magnificent interior living space, with an elevator, Savant smart home system, and radiant heat floors throughout. An additional approximately 2,000 square feet of wonderful outdoor space is provided in the sunny South garden, lushly planted roof deck, and private terrace off the master bedroom.
124 East 64th Street has been lovingly renovated to exacting standards by its current owners. The integrated Savant smart-home system controls the automated shades, home security, Lutron lighting and 11-zone Mitsubishi HVAC system, plus a redundant 10-zone radiant heating system. Additional high-level appointments include oak and marble flooring, a central vacuum system, six working fireplaces, and a backup home generator.
Brilliant light is received throughout the residence, captured by a glass-walled two-story atrium along the Southern expanse, and grand double-hung insulated windows. A thoughtfully designed light well disperses additional abundant sunlight through the core of the home, from a large skylight above.
124 East 64th Street is located in the heart of the Upper East Side, just two blocks from Central Park and surrounded by some of the finest dining, shopping, museums, and galleries Manhattan has to offer.
The house was built in 1870 to designs by the architectural firm D. & J. Jardine. Harold Prince, theatrical producer and director, is perhaps the most notable recent owner. He is associated with many of the best-known Broadway musicals, including Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Cabaret, and Evita.
Past notable residents have included prominent early 20th century lumber trader Henry William Kalt, as well as Robert Helyer Thayer, renowned American lawyer, naval officer and diplomat.
The fully-finished basement consists of a spacious gym/recreation room, large laundry room and home mechanicals. This level also affords abundant storage with multiple closets, including a spacious cedar closet. The basement also houses the mechanical systems of the building, which include: the central vacuum, two boilers which supply hot water to the radiant heat system, and an additional two-heat pump system capable of heating and cooling the entire house, providing a double dose of heating redundancy.
