About listing

Located on East 62nd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue, the Madison Suite sits on the 3rd floor of the 5-story 19th century Upper East Side Townhouse. There is no elevator. The fully furnished 4-room, convertible 3-bedroom NYC home extends to nearly 1000 SF, is plenty spacious and loaded with turn-of-the-century charm. The apartment’s airy expansiveness is further enhanced by the approximately 10 foot ceilings and parquet¬-style hardwood floors, both of which extend throughout the suite. Two marble fireplaces, sure to draw the eye in and give perspective to the spacious suite, are found: one in the larger rear bedroom and one near the front, dividing the sitting area from the queen bed there. With it’s location 3 flights above the house’s main ground floor entry hall, the apartment will reward you with two high-perched but radically diverging views, from the front and the back of this full-floor suite. The sitting area of this space gives plenty of room for family and friends, with a sofa, coffee table, antique armoire and two padded armchairs. Original crown moldings, window frames and baseboards are intact; high ceilings, hardwood floors; Panasonic 26" 720p LCD HDTV with iPod Dock. The room has two windows to East 62nd Street, and a marble fireplace mantle, adding old New York charm. Several large French reproduction prints, of Toulouse¬ Lautrec and others, add a little more to the brightness and elegance of the front space, which would itself constitute a fairly sizable Manhattan studio apartment. Opposite the sitting area, the room features a beautiful antique iron queen bed (sleeps 2). Located at the back end of the house, is a large bedroom which offers a queen bed (sleeps 2) and also includes several antique Irish pine pieces: a tall linen press, a cricket table, a chest of drawers, a blanket chest, and two nightstands.

It's one window faces the garden side of the townhouse. All beds are U.S. Standard size beds. *Please note that the apartments 2 fireplaces may not be used.

The kitchen is located just off the front room of the apartment and contains a windowed dining nook area with a round table and chairs.

  1. My wife and I flew into NYC from Australia and arrived late on 15th June, our son joined us from San Francisco, so even late were were able to get access. The accommodation worked well and the well equiped kitchen was a great advantage. The location on E 62nd Street was ideal from which to explore NYC. The staff were helpful, but, unobtrusive. The 50 steps and no RED wine were a killer!!! 25 June 2016 - 23:56:17

Full kitchen, comfortable beds, entire apartment was spotless, the block was breathtaking!! Great quiet neighborhood located close to the park and access to anywhere in the city. Quiet and relaxing, after our fun filled days. Lorraine was amazing!! The quaint historic brownstone was awesome!!!!! Will definately be back!! 08 September 2016 - 20:55:39
  3. 1871 is the ideal 'residence', the ideal place to stay, for anyone visiting NYC. My wife and a friend had a short but delightful stay there, with everything provided in their Suite and with complete privacy, and in a fantastic location for anything anyone might want to do or see. There is also an excellent choice of restaurants and cafes very close by. We consider it an extraordinary 'find' and would be very happy to return. 23 October 2016 - 22:26:20
