SURFACE SAYS

From the outside, this house makes us think of Jane Jacobs’s New York—it’s about as authentic as can be. From the inside, you’re transported into a contemporary world through warm, inviting interiors. Added bonus: that rooftop hot tub.

Built in 1891, 116 Waverly Place is an exceptionally renovated 22-foot wide, six-story single-family mansion. It affords approxi- mately 10,200 square feet of interior living space and nearly 2,000 square feet of outdoor space throughout the sunny garden, three terraces, and roof deck with an infinity-resistance swimming pool and open views of the Empire State Building and Freedom Tower. Designed by architect Dirk Denison, the mansion has an elevator that runs to all levels, seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, smart home technology, four fireplaces, and a handcrafted wine cellar with temperature and humidity control. 116 Waverly Place is famed for being the central gathering location for the literary elite of the mid-19th century. Notable American author, sculptress, and socialite Anne Charlotte Lynch resided in the home and held receptions there every Saturday evening for intellectual minds of the era. Guests included Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Andrew Carnegie, and Daniel Webster. To view more, click here.
