246 East 68th Street – Townhouse
246 East 68th Street – a very unique, Georgian revival style townhouse is another listing for Leslie J.

There are always unique architectural details that make photographing older buildings exciting, but this townhouse in particular was chock full of surprises.

The houses at 240 and 246 — designed by Mr. Litchfield and by Chester Patterson, respectively, in full-blown Georgian-revival style — have traditionally been the most arresting on the street. 246 East 68th Street retains much of the charm and character of yesteryear with its well proportioned rooms, expansive and beautifully landscaped garden, and three wood-burning fireplaces.
The first floor includes the kitchen and dining room which opens on to the garden. The second floor has the formal entertaining space including a spacious living room and wood paneled library and the top two floors have four generous bedrooms. The property also retains over three thousand square feet of air rights allowing for additional square footage and the opportunity to create truly grand home in the heart of the Upper East Side.
