Spacious bedroom suite housed within a classic Upper East Side Townhouse located on East 62nd Street between Park & Lexington in the historic Upper East Side Lenox Hill neighborhood.
The Townhouse is situated on a lovely tree-lined block two blocks to Central Park in the most desirable neighborhood in Manhattan. Convenient to East Midtown, high end shopping, restaurants, cafes, markets, etc.
Please note that there is no kitchen or access to a kitchen in the apartment. Provided is a small fridge and electric kettle.
The comfortable suite is accessed via a private keyed entrance.
Bedding and towels are provided including sheet sets (fitted and flat sheet), cotton blankets, down pillows, down quilts (winter months), a mattress pad. 1x monthly cleaning includes laundering of sheets and towels.
A grand original marble fireplace mantle, parquet floors, and a nearly 10' ceiling form the backdrop for this wonderfully decorated, approximately 345 square foot suite. A handsome Ralph Lauren leather settee sits at the foot of a gracious carved-wood four poster queen bed with rolling-pin headboard, both of which give way to a small marble bistro table and bistro chairs. Two more marble-topped items - a Victorian washstand and Victorian dresser - complete the bedroom's primary furnishings. The prints of 18th and 19th century ante-rooms and throne-rooms along the North wall remind one of the kind of luxury that the bedroom itself hearkens back to and perhaps makes it apparent why Country Living Magazine chose to photograph the Front Library for their "Inn of the Month" feature back in the day when 1871 House operated as a NYC-Style B&B.
Other furnishings include a rectangular marble table overlooking east 62nd Street (a perfect work perch), coffee table and wool rug. The narrow vintage bathroom is composed of a tub/shower, pedestal sink and toilet.
