Serene privacy and unmatched convenience will immediately endear you to 1871 House’s lovely side block of townhouses and the Upper East Side neighborhood at large. East 62nd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue is a quiet, tree-lined residential enclave for some of New York’s most prestigious addresses.
Originally one of a row of four brownstone residences (126-132) built in the Italianate style by architect John Sexton (also the architect for the home of Holly Golightly in the 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”), the house is not only significant for its architectural merit but its location in the coveted landmarked Upper East Side Historic District, 2.5 blocks from Central Park, multiple subway lines and the extensive shopping and dining options of the neighborhood. The classic townhome is perfectly situated on one of the most beautiful tree-lined blocks and home to numerous classic brownstone townhomes, grand mansions and luxury prewar apartment buildings.
