One flight above our lobby, guests find the romantic studio apartment known as the Front Parlor. The Parlor overlooks a row of East 62nd Street townhouses as elegant as 1871 House itself. Boasting a 12' ceiling, hardwood flooring, three over-sized lace-clad windows, and a classic fireplace mantle, the Parlor, in all its exquisite pre-war detail, extends to nearly 327 square feet.
The furniture, too, consists of carefully curated, individual pieces: an antique 19th century iron bed, resized to queen, an 18th century armoire from France's Provence region, a stylish slip-covered sofa, and an oriental wool rug. The list goes on: you can keep your clothes in a Victorian-era chest of drawers or leave your purse on a circa 1870 American Empire card table. The walls are adorned with reproductions of the prints of Toulouse-Lautrec and others, with a gilded mirror above the fireplace.
The Parlor's en-suite bathroom is simple and clutterless. A pedestal sink accompanies a full size en-suite bathtub with shower.
The butlers pantry is fully equipped with open shelving, a refrigerator/freezer, microwave and toaster oven, sink, electric coffeemaker and kettle. Dishes are provided. Adjacent to the kitchenette is a round marble bistro table and chair set.
