Upper East Side townhouse designed by the architect of Grant’s tomb seeks $38M

The hedge funder who owns it purchased it for $11.5 million in 2002

A 19th century home designed by the architect behind Grant’s Tomb in Riverside Park and the Memorial Arch in Grand Army Plaza is now on the market for $37.5 million. Luxury Listings NYC reports that the home belongs to hedge funder George E. Hall.

The five-story townhouse, located on East 69th Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues was built in 1887 with a limestone base and a juliette balcony on the second floor. A 1936 remodeling of the house removed those elements, and the townhouse at that time was fitted with a neo-Federal style facade, according to the brokerbabble.

Hall put down $11.5 million in 2002 to pick up this townhouse, according to Luxury Listings. Today this sprawling home comes with 12-foot-tall ceilings, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, a music performance room, and a large formal dining room, among other features.

A wood-paneled library is located on the third floor of the townhouse, and features a built in bar. The master suite takes up all of the fourth floor, and offers up a sun room, and a spacious terrace as well. In all, this massive house comes with seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, and an elevator that can be used to access all floors.
