High ceilings and a large, welcoming foyer create a feeling of grandness. The New York Times has said that Gilbert’s work “came to define the upper-class residence.” His love of the French Renaissance styling shines through in the voussoirs above each window and molded decorative keystones.

Move into the beautiful, sunny parlor floor owner’s unit with access to the garden, and collect rental income from the five units in the rest of the building. [MORE]

Single-Family Murray Hill Townhouse with Spectacular Views!
132 East 38th Street
Located on an elegant Murray Hill Historic District block, this 20’ wide, box-shaped single family home has a rare architectural footprint. The exterior is Second Empire style with an English basement and a stucco façade. Its square jewel box layout is both inviting and unpretentious. Original details, wall and ceiling ornaments, and working fireplaces decorate almost every room. Recent renovations include a new kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, refinished floors and woodwork, complete repainting, new windows, and remodeled bathrooms. In 1869, Murray Hill became so coveted that the developer Abraham B. Embury chose to build five 24’ deep townhouses instead of one townhouse on a 100 foot lot. The result is a great buy today: a fully renovated, finished single family home at a price affordable for the typical apartment buyer. Its 2400 square foot floor plan and 400 square foot roof deck provide the ideal living space for either a single person or a family. [MORE]
