The Parlor Studio

BED SIZE(S): 1 queen-size bed
ROOM SIZE: 327 sq. ft.

One flight above our entry foyer level is the fully furnished apartment rental known as the Front Parlor, or the Parlor Studio. This romantic apartment overlooks a row of East 62nd Street townhouses as elegant as 1871 House itself. Boasting a 12-foot ceiling, hardwood flooring, three oversize lace-clad windows, and a classic fireplace mantle, the Parlor, in all its exquisite pre-war detail, extends to nearly 327 square feet. With spacious comfort and luxury, this short-term rental is the ideal choice for your extended stay to the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC.

The furniture, too, consists of carefully curated, individual pieces: an antique 19th century iron bed, 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 reproduction prints of Toulouse-Lautrec and others, and topped off with a gilded mirror above the fireplace.

The Parlor’s en-suite bathroom is simple and clutter-free. A pedestal sink accompanies a full-size en-suite bathtub with shower.

The butler’s pantry is fully equipped with open shelving, a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster oven, sink, electric coffeemaker, french press and electric kettle. Dishes and cutlery are provided. Adjacent to the kitchenette is a round marble bistro table and chair set.

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.
