11 East 70th Street is a spectacular residential condominium occupying the lower two floors of two limestone mansions designed by one of New York's premier architects of the Beaux-Arts era. Located on one of the most beautiful and historic blocks in Manhattan's Upper East Side, the property adjoins the world-renowned Frick Museum, and the museum's famously serene gardens. This showcase property is located less than a block from Fifth Avenue and Central Park - in the heart of New York's Gold Coast. It is just steps from the high-end boutiques, hotels and restaurants of Madison Avenue and a short walk from the Whitney and Metropolitan Museums, the Asia Society and the Council on Foreign Relations. Many of Manhattan's best-known sights, stores and activities are within easy reach of this luxurious and centrally located address. The elegant townhouse was built in 1910 in the French Classical manner by American architect John Duncan. It was first occupied by an heiress to the Lorillard tobacco fortune. That same year, her son was building a reputation as one of America's first champion racecar drivers. In more recent times, the structure has been used as a consulate, and today it serves as a prominent art gallery. The space was redesigned and renovated for this purpose by the architectural firm of I.M. Pei. A new owner could return the property to its original residential purpose, or continue its use as a fine arts gallery. The space offers all the services of a luxury apartment building, with a 24-hour doorman located in the adjacent lobby. Yet it has its own distinguished townhouse entrance on 70th Street, fronted by granite steps, with an arched entryway and handsome wrought-iron details. With approximately 7,000 square feet of space, it may be entered either from the private street entrance or from the doorman lobby. It is a true maisonette property, covering two floors and featuring a ground-level terrace. The foyer leads to two spacious, high-ceilinged gallery room
