On the Market: UES Architectural Gem

Wealthy architecture geeks rejoice! A 1935 Upper East Side townhouse designed by pioneering modernist architect William Lescaze is on the block, and it's all yours for $8 million. The 20-foot-wide five-floor home, at 32 East 74th Street, has all the amenities of modern living, including: six bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, staff quarters, library, elevator, terrace and private backyard space. All in all, we're talking 6,800-square-feet of fun. It might need a little work, but this one's all about bragging rights anyway, isn't it? A tipster points out that while this wasn't Lescaze's own home (which is down in the 40s), it's very similar. And the proximity to the Whitney should have patrons of the arts lining up all the way down 74th Street.
