TREADWELL FARMS HISTORIC DISTRICT Designated in 1967, Treadwell Farm Historic District is one of New York's oldest historic districts, named for the Treadwell family who purchased the undeveloped land in 1815. The district consists of East 61st and East 62nd Streets between Second and Third Avenues, composed intentionally of four or five story single-family townhouses built from 1868 to 1876. ARCHITECTURE & INFLUENCE Built in 1868 for builders J. & G. Ruddell at estimated cost of $16,000 each, architect James W. Pirrson created Numbers 222 through 240, with 224 East 62nd Street as the gold standard for the row with a distinct width of 20 feet. Pirrson, the son of a well-known piano manufacturer, later pioneered in the planning of modern apartment houses. HOME AND HEARTH With garden level and stoop entries, this 20 foot wide townhouse is uncommonly wide for Treadwell Farms. Entering through the gated forecourt, the garden level entry opens onto the beautifully designed chef's kitchen with an eat-in area flooded with light from two windows. The kitchen features a marble-topped center island, 6-burner range, and SubZero refrigerator as well as two sinks and two dishwashers. The stair to the basement is separated by an elegant pane of glass. There is a powder room between the kitchen and formal dining room in the middle of the garden floor. The formal dining room has a wood-burning fireplace as well as three open doorways onto a sun-flooded den complete with stone pavers and a large skylight. A landscaped rear garden, replete with plantings, trees, and flowers, creates a peaceful and sunny atmosphere year-round. With a separate entry from the stoop, the parlour floor enjoys high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace on the south end, and access to a large terrace which overlooks the lush rear garden and those of neighboring Treadwell residences and down to the garden floor through the walkable skylight. The moldings are original as are the floors created from quarter-sawn oak. There is a separate closet and storage space off the main hall with access to the terrace, as well. There is a new stair with original mahogany handrail and new spindles. The third floor is comprised of two bedrooms front and back, each with walk-in closets, decorative fireplaces, and en-suite baths adorned in Bleu de Savoie marble floors and Bianco Dolomiti marble walls in the showers. This level also includes a laundry room between the two bedrooms featuring porcelain floors and new Electrolux washer/dryer units. There is additional closet space on the hallway and each bedroom is filled with natural light, benefiting from the three-window arrangement front and back. An exceptional master bedroom suite and home office occupies the entire fourth floor. A luxurious master bath includes porcelain floors, a blue Macauba marble double sink, a stall shower and separate tub is positioned beside a home office with two windows and built-in bookcases. The master bedroom spans the full 20 foot width of the house, creating a peaceful and bright bedroom with a decorative fireplace mantle. Two walk-in closets - one with skylight - provide ample storage space, and the entire top floor is illuminated by a grand center skylight highlighting the five-inch Brazilian cherry floors. The basement level includes storage, mechanicals, and the home run for all A/V systems in the house. Technical/mechanical upgrades include but are not limited to: new electrical service throughout, new plumbing throughout, new data wiring, Control4 automation on garden and parlor, 1 zone per floor CAC and forced-air heating, uses two high-efficiency heat pumps instead of a boiler, two gas-fired hot water heaters, new waste lines below ground and additional drainage to keep basement dry, and a new roof membrane.
