The home features 4 floors and an English basement, 5 bedrooms and 4 fireplaces, a 45 foot deep private garden and a large elevator.The famous garden community was developed in 1920 from a group of renovated 19th century homes and is now comprised of 20 houses and gardens on 48th and 49th Streets, between Second and Third Avenues. Low masonry walls separate individual private gardens from each other, and from a central esplanade which is shared by all. Two old willow trees, benches, and a fountain grace the central esplanade. The openness achieved in this enclosed space is reminiscent of an intimate Italian garden. It is an oasis in the City. CONTRACT SIGNED.
