The Library Suite

The Library Suite is a two-bedroom/two-bath suite with a private central kitchen and interior connecting hallway. It is the combination of the street facing bedroom and the garden facing bedroom positioned in the rear portion of the building.  The apartment has two entrances.  Each bedroom has a private en-suite bathroom.  Of the three full-floor suites at 1871 House, the Library Suite is the only suite with two bathrooms and offers the best arrangement for two colleagues traveling together.  

The Front Bedroom

MAX GUESTS: 1
BED SIZE(S):1 queen-size & 1 twin-size trundle bed
ROOM SIZE: 345 sq. ft.

For your extended stay in Manhattan, NYC, make yourself at home in the Front Library, a cozy and inviting luxury bedroom suite at 1871 House near Midtown. The street-view side of the second floor makes up the Front Library, a simple but spacious suite whose oversized north-facing windows give a terrific midlevel portrait of the townhouse’s neighbors. An original marble fireplace mantle, parquet floors, and a 10-foot ceiling form the backdrop for this wonderfully decorated, approximately 345 square foot suite.

A comfortable Ralph Lauren leather settee sits at the foot of a carved wood queen-size bed with rolling-pin headboard, both of which give way to a small marble bistro table and bamboo bistro chairs. Two more marble-topped items – a Victorian washstand and Victorian dresser – complete the suite’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 Front Library 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.

The kitchen is accessed via a connecting hallway to the Rear Library bedroom. Also provided in the room is a small refrigerator and electric kettle. The vintage bathroom is a narrow space composed of a tiled tub/shower, pedestal sink and toilet.

The Rear and Front bedrooms connect to each other via a connecting interior door and hallway through the kitchen. 

A/C available June-October. Room includes Panasonic 26″ 720p LCD HDTV with ROKU attachment for streaming your favorite shows or movies on Netflix, Amazon or other available apps. Fireplace is decorative only. Pets and smoking are not permitted. The house is not serviced by an elevator. All suites are accessed via the house’s common staircase. 

The Rear Bedroom

The Rear Library
MAX GUESTS: 2
BED SIZE(S): 1 queen-size & 1 twin-size daybed
ROOM SIZE: 345 sq. ft.

For your temporary corporate housing or extended stay, look no further than the Rear Library Bedroom Suite of 1871 House, a set of unique residential hotel alternative accommodations in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC. Two flights above the lobby sits the Rear Library, which exudes a kind of palatial serenity, owing to its spacious size, princess-worthy netting and cream bedding around the queen-size sleigh bed, and an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling books. The south-facing bedroom suite gets lots of light through its three lace-clad windows, which overlook a garden and terrace, and the daybed certainly makes one of the more enticing nap spots you will come across. The quiet bedroom suite is positioned in the rear of the building. The beautiful oak parquet floors, the imposing marble fireplace, and the 10-foot ceilings all contribute to the expansive quality of the room. A large Oriental rug, the inviting wrought iron and brass daybed, a bureau, an antique armoire, and a round dining table with three chairs complete the suite’s furnishings.

The Rear Library also includes an adjacent compact kitchen with a microwave, toaster, regular ovens, a stove, a coffeemaker, sink, and full-size refrigerator.

The Rear Library’s en-suite bathroom is the most recently renovated in the entire townhouse and consists of a just-rebuilt tiled shower, pedestal sink, and toilet.

Things to note: The Rear and Front bedrooms connect to each other via a connecting interior door and hallway through the kitchen. A/C available June-October.  Room includes Panasonic 26″ 720p LCD HDTV with ROKU attachment for streaming your favorite shows or movies on Netflix, Amazon or other available apps.
