226-228 East 49th Street
Few houses possess the grace, sense of grandeur, and at the same time comfortable intimacy that this house presents. A cornerstone of Turtle Bay Gardens, a unique enclave of townhouses on an exclusive central garden promenade, this outstanding home features a small hall of mirrors leading to a double height grand ballroom, with 22 ft. ceilings. Above is an expansive double height sky lit artist's studio. In addition to the private garden with its own central fountain, the property gives directly on to the historic promenade, the famed willow tree, and 'Medici fountain' modeled after the original in Rome. Stepping into this 38 foot mansion is a rarified experience. With four to five bedrooms, seven fireplaces, garage, elevator. A magnificent property, and unique opportunity to participate in New York City's glamorous history, and future.
