The house was originally constructed in 1870-71 as one of seven Italianate-style brownstone row houses. In 1925 the house was recreated in the Colonial Revival style by Treaner & Fatio, prominent architects who created the adjacent Rockefeller mansion in 1924 using the same style. In addition to the Rockefellers, other prominent people who have made their home on this block include Richard Nixon and Tennessee Williams.
This house is located on a quiet and charming tree-lined townhouse block very near shops, stores, parking garages, the 4,5,6, N, Q, R, W, F subway lines and the M66 crosstown bus, providing easy and quick access to all parts of the city. We invite you to experience this exceptional house in person.
