Located in the Henderson Place Historic District, 556 East 87th Street is a charming, four-story, single-family townhouse set on the south side of 87th Street between East End and York Avenues. Built in the Queen Anne style, this charming home is steps from the highly coveted Carl Schurz Park and contains approximately 3,000 square feet of interior space. It features four-bedrooms, two full bathrooms and three half baths as well as two woodburning fireplaces, central air conditioning, gracious ceiling height, and two entrances. Upon walking up the front stoop and entering the lovely semicircular arched doorway you pass through a front vestibule and into a double parlor floor with a living room to one side facing the street and a second sitting room facing Henderson Place. This floor boasts nearly 24' of frontage, with three exposures. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. Down the circular staircase that leads you to the ground level, there is a formal dining room with a door onto a quaint garden which faces the private gardens of both Henderson Place and East End Avenue. In the front is a kitchen and a powder room in addition to mechanicals which can be found on this level. On the third level are two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and an additional dressing area with a half bath. The Fourth floor has two bedrooms, one full bath, and an office with half bath. The Henderson Place Historic District dates back to the late 1800's and today, over a century later, it still maintains much of its original character and detail. One of the most exclusive enclaves on the Upper East Side, these homes boast some of the earliest American examples of the Queen Anne architectural style, which blended characteristics of the Elizabethan Manor House with Flemish and classic detail. While in need of updating, 556 East 87th Street offers a rare opportunity to acquire a unique and historic residence that can be reimagined and customized by a new buyer.
