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.
Room includes Panasonic 26″ 720p LCD HDTV with ROKU attachment for streaming your favorite shows or movies on Netflix, Amazon or other available apps.
Things to Note:
-As 1871 House is a historical building and retains much of its 19th Century structure, it is not suited for all accessibility needs.
-The charming, late 1800s townhouse, is not a modern structure – think creaky floorboards, sloping floors and things as such.
-This is a studio apartment without a separate bedroom area
-This apartment is 14 steps up from the entry foyer level
-The kitchen is better described as a kitchenette: there’s a sink, under-counter refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven…no stove burners or dishwasher
-While the kitchen is small it still good enough to prepare your morning coffee and other basics, just don’t expect to flex your culinary muscles
-There’s no lift in the building and the flat is one flight up from the entry hall level.
-Guest won’t be able to sit around a crackling fire – the fireplace is only decorative
-This flat is located in the front portion of the house facing the street. As this is NYC, you shouldn’t expect the streets below to be quiet – there may be construction or traffic noise nearby
-This flat does not have a buzzer system
-a/c is installed for the months of June-October and is optional for the months of June and October only.
-Pets and smoking are not permitted.
