RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE ONE OUT OF THE SEVEN HISTORIC TOWNHOUSES IN THE PRESTIGIOUS RHINELANDER DISTRICT ON THE UPPER EAST SIDE.

The second and third floors each contain a floor-through two-bedroom unit with a private balcony/deck. The fourth floor is a two-bedroom duplex with annex and roof deck access.

The building, which boasts tremendous character and history, has light and air on three sides, original fireplaces, and a south facing garden. The Rhinelander District is one of the smallest historic districts in New York City, comprised of seven buildings on the corner of East 89th Street and Lexington Avenue. These seven homes were originally designed as 'French Flats', which exemplified a distinct social status at a time when many New Yorkers shared living quarters in tenement buildings. The Rhinelanders, one of New York's oldest and wealthiest landlords in the 18th and 19th centuries, hired renowned architect Henry Hardenbergh whose rsum included the Dakota, the Waldorf Astoria, and the Plaza to design these homes with an aura of romance and sophistication. Traditionally one of the most mature and stable rental markets in Manhattan, this Upper East Side building is located just three blocks from the 4, 5, and 6 subway lines at East 86th Street and Lexington Avenue.
