This five-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath townhouse at 134 E. 36th Street in Murray Hill offers lots of space, light, and some nice extras.
Listed for $6.995 million, the house was built in 1940 and was recently renovated. The house is on a corner lot (at 36th and Lexington Avenue), providing exposure on three sides. The place has central air, radiant heat floors, Lutron lighting, built-in sound, an alarm system, and an elevator to ease the trips between the five floors.
The 1,100 square foot ground floor includes a foyer, a family room, a library, and a half bath, and the second floor features formal living and dining spaces with 11-foot ceilings.
A custom chef's kitchen is outfitted with a La Cornue range, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Miele dishwasher, and cabinetry by Poggenpohl.
A media room on the third floor is equipped with a wet bar and wine cooler, and the entire fourth floor is dedicated to the master suite, which includes a five-piece master bath with white marble, custom lacquered cabinetry, and a soaking tub and steam shower. There's an enviable closet/dressing area as well.
Additional living-the-good life features: views of the Chrysler building and a private terrace off of the second story.
The listing says that the house provides a live/work opportunity, which we assume means that the zoning would allow for a commercial office in the house. The closest public transportation is the 6 at 33rd Street and Park Avenue, four blocks away. FDR Drive is close by, making trips out of the city by car a quick proposition.
