About 8 East 63rd Street

CENTRAL PARK BLOCK GRAND DAME

Erected in 1878 by C.P.H. Gilbert, this impressive 25' wide Neo English Classical brick and brownstone, elevatored mansion features 5 floors and sits just two doors from Central Park, in the heart of Madison Avenue's Luxury retail district.

Situated among the most coveted of blocks, containing a small bounty of published historic homes, 8 East 63rd Street stands ready to resume its prestigious stature while offering its future owner the chance to place their mark on an historic masterpiece.

Currently configured as three separate units, the property offers a unique opportunity to restore it to its intended use as a single-family mansion. At an existing 9,420 SF, and with a remaining 2,469 SF of unused FAR, 8 East 63rd is presently configured as two vacant duplex apartments—both glorious in scale—and a ground floor office space, with a tenant in place. The property currently includes 20 rooms, nine bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two powder rooms, six fireplaces, and two private terraces. This grand-scale, bright home, has separate maids quarters, and private outdoor space, as well as features ceiling heights up to 11.7 feet. There is also a fully finished basement with ceilings up to 13 feet.

Architecturally significant with magnificent proportions, this home is rich in both detail and luminous history. Its original owner, Joseph Hodges Choate, was one of the most prominent lawyers and statesman of his time, leading the U.S delegation to the second peace conference at The Hague in 1907.
