A rare offering, this delightful 4-6 bedroom Queen Anne Style townhouse is located in the coveted and unique Henderson Place Historic District  (designed by the distinguished firm of Lamb and Rich in 1882). The brownstone and red brick faade features a curving stone entry stair that leads to double doors beneath an elegant brick arch with a delicate, elongated brownstone keystone. The house has its own wonderful garden patio that provides a perfect soothing and quiet escape from the bustle of New York with its plantings and surrounding ivy and greenery. On the parlor floor, one enters a wide hallway toward a staircase that divides two parlor rooms (north and south) that have generous scale, high ceilings and excellent light through large windows with the north parlor featuring a wood burning fireplace. The garden floor has a kitchen, formal dining room that leads to the garden, a half bath and a  laundry room. The two floors above feature north and south bedrooms and the 2nd floor master bedroom has a wood burning fireplace as well. There are decorative (formerly coal burning) fireplaces in all of the south facing rooms. The house has a warm, inviting feeling throughout and is capped by two skylights on the top floor that radiate light down the staircase. The house has 2 full and 3 half baths, central air-conditioning and is across the street from the lovely Carl Shurz Park and Gracie Mansion. Truly a distinguished home in a remarkable complex in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Manhattan. The new Second Avenue subway  (Q Train) now makes this house even more accessible to Midtown and the rest of Manhattan than ever before. There is easy access to the nearby FDR Drive and the East River Esplanade.Taxes: $2,285/mo., $27,420/year
