I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to. MARJORIE KINNAN RAWLINGS


F LY S H E E T


There is a place of verdant serenity‌

A place that delights in the changing seasons.

A place to breathe in the scent of a rosebud in the morning air. Or to watch a tree’s shadow grow at sunset.

A place that encourages the contemplation of great thoughts, or a bird’s song.

A place to quietly observe the passage of time.


A graceful sanctuary‌

A place that serves as a shelter from the turbulence of everyday life.

A place where noise and distractions are not admitted.

A place to collect oneself, and become centered.

Where a sense of balance and composure is regained.


A domain infused with history and culture‌

Within its boundaries artists create.

Industrialists build empires.

Politicians conspire.

And beguiled parents watch as their children discover the world.


That resides within a dynamic metropolis‌


That place is Gramercy Park.

In each great city of the world, the most privileged residents claim an area of refuge. A private quarter where the urban bustle does not intrude. In London’s Berkeley Square or the Place Vendôme in Paris, the urban elite reserves to itself a cloistered realm of domestic tranquility.

A place of light and air. A place of architectural distinction. A place where genteel living is its own reward.

Now an opportunity arrives to achieve that style of life.


The opportunity is 18 Gramercy Park South. N

Overlooking the square inspired by the private parks of Regency-era London, 18 Gramercy Park South occupies four of the original 66 building lots laid out by developer Samuel Ruggles in 1831. The 17-story Georgian structure is situated on the corner of Irving Place, which allows for its attractive fenestration and high window to floor area ratio. Constructed in 1927, the building soars above its low-rise neighbors. But for the second floor and penthouse, each floor conforms to a similar configuration. Further distinguishing this prized property are four terraces on the penthouse level and the chamfered facade of the building, yielding 12 exposures.

The historic district of Gramercy Park is one of New York City’s most sought-after neighborhoods. It is immediately accessible to Midtown Manhattan, Greenwich Village and the chic shopping districts of Chelsea and Soho, yet it remains a secluded oasis characterized by traditional brownstone and brick residential buildings.

For a property of this significance to become available in so exclusive a neighborhood, within a world capital city, is a rare event indeed.
