Property Description

The Parge House is a classic property, created by architect Frederick Sterner in 1923, with numerous configuration possibilities on New York City’s elegant Upper East Side. A corner building on a tree-lined block, the building is distinguished by its elaborate parge work set into white decorative plaster in combination with red brick, Tudor style doors and variegated colored slate roof. Windows line its northern and eastern facades, filling the large spacious rooms with light. The countless fine details seen throughout the building make this a truly one of a kind opportunity for any purchaser.

The Upper East Side has long been the established home of wealthy New York families who wish to enjoy the convenience and sophistication of fine city living. The unparalleled cultural amenities of the Upper East Side draw many to live here; the convenience, the nightlife, and the prestige associated with an Upper East Side address speak for themselves. With Central Park and Museum Mile defining its western border, the neighborhood is famous for its elegant townhouses, world-class boutiques and restaurants, top-rated schools and a deep-rooted commitment to culture. When this sophistication is overlaid with an infrastructure of convenient transportation, plentiful retail options, and vibrant nightlife, it is easy to understand why the Upper East Side holds a cachet for so many. The Parge House captures the best of New York living and is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of the exclusive Upper East Side that is anchored by corner retail.

The property is a twenty (20’) foot wide, eighty (80’) foot long, five (5) story mixed-use building located on the southwest corner of Lexington Avenue and East 65th Street. The property has two (2) commercial units on the ground floor currently occupied by fine linens retailer Casa Del Bianco and custom tailor Manolo Costa. Casa Del Bianco is positioned on the corner of Lexington and East 65th Street and Manolo Costa occupies the western portion of the building and has a separate address of 130 1/4 East 65th Street. Each of the retail tenants also occupies a residential unit.

The residential component of the building includes a beautiful 3,375 (approx) square foot owners triplex with outdoor terrace and a total of three (3) free market units on the 4th and 5th floors above. A private entrance on East 65th Street provides access to the triplex, which was formerly occupied by ownership and will be delivered vacant.
