Located on what Fortune magazine called "probably New York City's most beautiful residential block," this sun-filled, elevatored, and 20-foot wide townhouse with a classic, brick and limestone Georgian facade, is in move-in condition.
This 5 bedroom, 5+ bathroom townhouse offers over 7,400 square feet and has a spectacular and expansive south-facing garden terrace on the second level. In addition, the house wraps around a charming and serene outdoor courtyard, reminiscent of homes in Paris, which provides abundant additional light and a 3rd exposure.

One enters the home through a gated front garden which leads through the foyer and past the elevator to an enormous eat-in kitchen professionally designed for the serious home chef and grand entertaining. It features all top-of-the-line appliances, a massive six-burner stovetop which is vented to the outside through a professional exhaust hood, a center island with utility sink and extensive countertops for prep work, 2 dishwashers, a second sink, large walk-in pantry, ovens and double-width refrigerator. Whether cooking at home or catering for a party, this kitchen can handle it all and overlooks the sunny, outdoor courtyard to boot. After walking through the kitchen, one passes the outdoor courtyard and continues to a large and welcoming family room, or casual dining room, with fireplace and which overlooks both the open courtyard and another outdoor area at the rear.

The parlor floor is a show-stopper. Either by taking the stairs or the elevator, one arrives at a large and gracious landing which divides the formal dining room from the living room and what lies beyond. The dining room has 3 windows overlooking other magnificent townhouses on the block, a wet bar, and a generously proportioned powder room. The living room ceiling soars over 12 feet and has a huge picture window overlooking the sunny courtyard below and a fireplace. Continuing through the sun room, which has wonderful windows overlooking the courtyard, one arrives at the magnificent garden terrace which is as large as a townhouse garden and sunny like a terrace, providing outdoor space featuring the best of both worlds.

The third floor comprises 2 bedrooms, the primary bedroom suite with an enormous south-facing window and huge dressing room and ensuite bathroom with soaking tub, and another bedroom or library at the front with its own ensuite bathroom, large shower and walk-in closet.Continuing to the fourth floor, one finds 3 additional bedrooms, 2 ensuite bathrooms, and a powder room which services the smaller bedroom at the rear of that floor which works well as either a nanny's room, homework room or home office, and features 2 exposures.

The townhouse also has a separate service entrance which leads past several storage closets and a large wine refrigerator to the finished basement. For the wine enthusiast, the basement features an enormous, walk-in temperature controlled wine cellar measuring approximately 9 x 9 feet. The basement also has amazing storage space, the townhouse's mechanicals including its heating and central air conditioning systems, washer/dryer with separate utility sink and clothes folding countertop, elevator motor room, and a full staff bathroom. The elevator services all floors including the basement.

A truly remarkable townhouse on one of the city's most beautiful townhouse blocks, 126 East 70th Street is not to be missed. Please call, email or text for your personal appointment.
