Rarely does the opportunity arise to acquire a gallery space next to one of the world's leading art museums. Just imagine housing your art collection in a French Classical building nestled alongside the Frick Museum and its splendid garden. Whether you want to house a private or public gallery-or you are in search of a phenomenal residence that will showcase your collection-get ready to make a statement.
The Gallery at 11 East 70th Street, built as a splendid limestone residence in 1910 by Charles I. Berg, stands as a magnificent mansion ready for whatever plans you have for it. The spectacularly designed two-story gallery features a striking wrought-iron and glass entrance as well as a stone balcony with balustrade above. Inside, grand rooms, high ceilings, marble floors, and a circular staircase await.
Upon entering The Gallery, you are immediately drawn in by the grandness of the vestibule which leads gracefully into the 21'6" x 21'6" room. With ceilings soaring 11 feet overhead, this first gallery is grand and magnificent. As you make your way through, you see a stunning architectural marble spiral staircase which elegantly leads to the second gallery. This space is of grand proportion-also measuring 21' x 21'-and has custom-designed hardwood floors and windows overlooking the rear garden.
As you leave the second gallery and head down a few steps, you find yourself in a beautiful living room/library with a fireplace. This room and the adjoining office also have windows overlooking the garden. Adjacent to the second gallery is a third gallery measuring 11'9" x 18'2".
Below the main gallery is the Garden Level, with its two large gallery spaces with windows and doors that lead to the private garden. In addition, there is office space and rooms for storage. Once your curated collection of gems fills The Gallery's elegant spaces, 11 East 70th will stand out as one of the most distinguished galleries or residences in New York City.
Designed and reimagined as a residence for modern living, The Gallery to treat as your own blank canvas. Reimagine the space into a custom residence that works for you. The space offers endless possibilities for an art lover to create their own masterpiece, right next to The Frick and moments away from Central Park. Come see the spectacular space, and feel free to bring your architect to meet with the building contractor. Get ready to be inspired...
