Serene Townhouses on the Upper East Side

Curbed.com is reporting about a new townhouse listing on the Upper East Side; the building was once home to Alexis Brink, a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner and licensed inter-faith minister. Her former townhouse at 165 East 82nd Street is being marketed as an island of "serenity that envelops you once you’ve crossed the threshold" far from the busy city. Serenity doesn't come cheap, since the building is for sale for $16.5 million.

Of course, the Upper East Side has a range of much cheaper and equally serene digs, if townhouses are your thing:

For $3.4 million: 144 East End is a classic brick and stone Queen Anne on a tree-lined residential street that is quieter than many suburbs. The gorgeous tree views in every room make this a relaxing and peaceful place to live. Enjoy three bedrooms and three fireplaces spread over four stories all to yourself!

$3.95 million gets you 240 East 60th Street, a five-story Victorian that is currently an antique shop. The red brick interiors and black and white checkered floors give the townhouse a wistful and old-world charm that is beautiful and comforting, while offering enough space for a large family, or even a couple to just stretch out. The skylight and loads of original features make this building an antique in its own right.

142 East End Avenue offers sweeping views of Carl Schurz Park on a prestigious East End Avenue address. Being on the edge of the park and the edge of Manhattan gives this townhouse and its neighborhood a quiet, serene, almost suburban feel that is only bolstered by the many trees in the park and lining the street. Inside the five-story building are two terraces with views of the charming garden. An extra bonus with this property is its wide, spacious layout.

It's easy to get serenity in the Upper East Side for a lot less than $14.5 million if you have an agency on your side, so why not get in touch with one that will help you save money?
