Five-story brownstone in tiny Upper East Side historic district asks $14M

The charming townhouse last traded hands for $5.9 million in 2015

A little over three years after it last sold, a lovely Upper East Side brownstone has returned to the market for $13.99 million. The five-story townhouse is part of the charming Treadwell Farm Historic District—a tiny historic district on the Upper East Side, that is also one of the first historic districts to be created by the city.

The district, which includes parts of East 61st and 62nd Streets between Second and Third Avenues, is notable for its three and four-story brownstone residences that were built between the mid to late-19th century. The house at 215 East 61st Street underwent a complete renovation and rooftop addition after it sold in March 2015 for $5.9 million.

It first came on the market after its renovation for $14.79 million, in April 2017, but it has now traded brokerage firms, going from Corcoran to Douglas Elliman, and is back for a little bit less.

In all, the townhouse has five bedrooms, and six and a half bathrooms spread out over 5,900 square feet of space. In addition, there’s 1,100 square feet of outdoor space that’s divvied up between a garden and three terraces, including a rooftop terrace.

An elevator connects all six levels of the house, and the brownstone comes fitted with an 11-zone central AC, a humidification system, automated lighting, and a HEOS sound system.
