Located on a beautiful tree-lined block off Lexington Avenue, 163 East 64th Street is a stunning example of Neo-Georgian architecture. Originally built in 1872, the house was reimagined in 1901 by notable architect R.D. Graham as his private residence. The exterior of the house is clad in red clay brick and raked limestone and features an elegant entry forecourt with separate service entrance and radiant heat sidewalk for effortless snow removal. Standing 20 feet wide, the house offers 8,000 square feet of interior space and features 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 3 half bathrooms, 8 fireplaces as well as an elevator that services all floors, including the basement. A spectacular landscaped roof terrace with radiant heat stone on the fourth floor provides the perfect setting for outdoor entertaining.

On the floor is a south-facing library paneled in English Pine, a formal living room with Louis XIV-style paneling and a formal dining room overlooking the house garden. A grand bar/atrium between the two aforementioned spaces features a beautiful stained glass domed ceiling, providing for stunning interior illumination.
The fully finished windowed basement includes a laundry room, cedar closet, storage and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. Additional features of the home include multi-zone central air conditioning, back-up generator and a state-of-the-art AV system.
