About this property
Offering a rare opportunity for live / work on Gramercy Park. Available for purchase is a two-room one-bedroom suite with a view of the Gramercy Park and the romantic streetscape out the window. This home or office is on the ground floor and next to the building’s primary entrance. It’s perfect as a studio for living, a private office, a writing atelier, or a pied-a-terre. Prior tenants have included full-time residential users and light-traffic office users. The apartment features high ceilings, hardwood floors, a kitchenette, and windows in each room.
Constructed at the turn of the 19th Century, as the Hotel Irving, the building is located in the Gramercy Park historical district, a wholly unique enclave of elegant prewar buildings built around Manhattan’s only private park. The building is a block-though and has an entrance on the park and a secret entrance on East 19th Street near Irving Pace, “Block Beautiful,” as it is known locally. The residents of 26 Gramercy Park South may join the exclusive association that enjoys and has keys to the park.
The neighborhood is beautiful and serene, yet located steps away from all the action of downtown, including Union Square, the 23rd Street commercial corridor, Madison Square Park, multiple transportation options, and many of the best restaurants and shopping in New York.
The building has a part-time doorman, a full-time superintendent, a porter, central laundry room, and pets are welcome.
