The property, originally built in 1848, was a private residence until it was sold to the Pen and Brush Club — the oldest professional woman’s organization in the United States.

“It’s a very unique and special house, in a very special location, and that’s what attracted them to it,” said Bernstein, adding that he knew “exactly what to find” when his buyers told him what they wanted.

With 10,482 square feet of interior space over 7 levels as well as 2094 square feet of outdoor space, the townhouse is one of a kind. It is comprised of 5 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a private pool, 3 wood burning fireplaces, a commercial grade elevator, smart home technology, multiple outdoor spaces and radiant heated floors.

“Needless to say I am thrilled that City Connections Realty and Paul Bernstein were involved in this townhouse sale. It’s an amazing property in what I think is the best area in Manhattan to live in. I might be a little prejudiced as my parents had an apartment a few doors down back in the 1980’s, and I so enjoyed staying there,” explains David Schlamm, founder, City Connections Realty.

The home, at 16 E. 10th Street, is an L-shaped renovated historic mansion, with ceiling heights up to 16 feet in one room, an abundance of natural light, more than 2,000 s/f of outdoor space, and even an indoor pool.

Originally built in 1848, the townhouse was a private residence until it was sold to the Pen and Brush Club in 1923. The club, which dates back to 1893, is the oldest professional woman’s organization in the United States.

The asking price for the home was $38.5 million, and it sold for $32 million after 70 days on the market. David Kornmeier of Brown Harris Stevens represented the sellers.
