Your own private hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York trip. Enjoy life in an elegant 1904 Mansion in one of the city's most charming historic neighbourhoods.

If you are a regular guest of The Carlyle, The Mark, or The Surrey, but are looking for more space, privacy, bespoke personalized service... or merely more calm and quiet (here you can hide from the paparazzi)... or if you are a couple celebrating a special occasion... or if you are simply looking for an unforgettable stay... this classically furnished, most luxurious guest suite is distinctly for you.

This elegant Aristocratic Beaux-Art style Landmark Mansion was built in 1904 from Indiana limestone and Italian marble. My family was fortunate to have acquired it in 1988, and it has been our family's leading residence since 1994.

At over 13,000+ sqft, (1.200+ sqm), our NYC Mansion is much too spacious for us. So we decided to live on the upper 3 floors, and to convert the lower 4 floors into completely separate & very private guest apartments (all with independent entry) available year-round for brief stays and mid-term let.

Since 2005, we have been luxuriously hosting guests from around the world in a warm and splendid environment.

The Deluxe Terraced Suite is decorated with old-world antiques, 17th century Florentine prints, very high, 16ft ceilings.

Original, parquet floors, meticulously laid at the turn of the 19th century.

The suite includes a private and well-furnished Terrace overlooking a very green and very calming courtyard... perfect for evening drinks or a candlelight dinner.

☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼

Though this suite is the largest of the 5 guest apartments of our house, we do prefer to host only 2-3 guests in it. The Terraced Suite is about luxury, and not about the efficient use of space.

Brilliant charismatic property- highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant, charismatic property conveniently situated in a quiet, smart area of Manhattan, with a host and staff who are polite, friendly and very helpful. Very highly recommended.

This is my second stay in this spectacular Mansion. Last spring, we stayed one floor higher, in the Deluxe European Suite.

This springtime, we stayed in the Deluxe Terraced Suite, where we spent a 5 week period in New York City that passed all too quickly.

We are a retired couple in our mid-50’s, and have extensively travelled worldwide, purposefully not staying in hotels, but especially seeking-out unique, memorable, and well serviced properties as our lodging.

Lots of sunlight is very important to us... and the private, outdoor terrace was delightful.

With Julia’s family wonderful Deluxe Terraced Suite, we were thrilled with the accommodations. Julia warmly met us in the Entry Hall, which was really the perfect start to our stay. Julia is the most gracious, hospitable, and generous hostess we have ever experienced with any of our American rentals. The suite far exceeded our expectations. Large windows everywhere, some of which overlooked a beautiful garden. The home is gorgeous and rich with decor, much of which are beloved family antiques and heirlooms; even more elegant than the pictures could ever express.

We made our own breakfast most every day of our stay, plus we had everything we needed for successful dinner-cooking and meal-preparation. Also, the transportation services couldn't have been better: prompt, polite and very accommodating. Thank you for a beautiful month, Julia. We would absolutely recommend this property to any of our friends who frequently travel to New York City.

Perfect location and beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at the Deluxe Terraced Suite during October 2016 and can’t say enough how much we enjoyed our time in NYC because of this location. We ended up having a hard time leaving the area. The townhouse is located right near Surrey’s. Central Park is just a block away with a park entrance right on 76ths street and Fifth Ave. You walk down the street, and you are in one of the most beautiful areas of the Central Park, surrounded by the great museums and the art galleries of the Upper East side. Julia gave us great tips for places to see, like the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum which was a hit with our early-teen kids. The apartment itself looks exactly like in the pictures, spacious, very classy and most of all extremely clean. There’s not one speck of dust anywhere in the apartment. The linens smell fresh and clean and the bed mattress is very comfortable. The kids slept in the living room sofas which were very comfortable as well. Besides cleaning the apartment (and doing an exceptional job at that), Anna, the housekeeper did the laundry for us. I still can’t get over her smiling face bringing our carefully folded laundry every day. We really appreciated that.

We also had family and friends visit us for a few hours at a time in the apartment which turned out to be really enjoyable as we felt like they were visiting us at our home rather than at a hotel. Julia runs the place and she is an exceptional host. She’s direct and she’s approachable. Like other reviewers have mentioned, she will want to talk to you before the arrangements are finalized and at first this was a bit out of the ordinary, but by the time I met Julia, it was like she was an old friend. She will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and welcomed at her place. I highly recommend the Fifth Avenue Apartments and would love to return!

Refined apartment living in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

As an executive assistant to an entertainment industry producer, I had the pleasure to interact with Julia regarding the Deluxe Terraced Suite at her townhouse.

My boss was a guest there for eight nights. The decor and location were exceptional and as described online. Julia and her staff were very responsive and always available to answer requests, accept deliveries and be of service to my boss. Their services, including daily housekeeping, were as impeccable as any top rated NYC hotel.

5 Stars for a very comfortable and extremely quiet stay at a location that can't be beat!

Perfect location to enjoy Central Park & U.E.S.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (+ dog) stayed here recently for a long weekend. Very convenient to C.P. and the Met/Guggenheim, as well as all Upper East Side environs. Plenty of good dinning/food choices nearby. The building owners (who reside on the upper floors of the building) rent several apts in the building, all of very good quality (we got a peek at some of the others). The owner (Julia) was always available for assistance, and was quick to respond. The building had the usual "old school NYC" characteristics; nice lobby, high ceilings, and good working elevator. We stayed in the "Grand White Loft", a 1 bedroom apt with 4 add'l beds/fotons nicely distributed in the living space. Though we spent most of our time out & about, the place had plenty of space and was more than comfortable enough. It all worked very well, and we'll be back!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

As a personal assistant I was entrusted to book a complete trip to New York including finding a safe, quite, centrally located place to stay for a week for a very busy mother of three teen aged children. A friend of mine who had previously stayed here recommended this townhouse. It look perfect, exactly what I was looking for.

From my initial contact to departure, Julia was wonderful; very responsive and professional. She assisted with making several special accommodation and was easy to work with. My boss and her family have very particular dietary preferences; I gave Julia an extensive and specific grocery list of items for their stay. No problem, Julia took care of that and made sure the kitchen was stocked with the requested items prior to their arrival. Since my boss and her family were getting in late, Julia made sure the beds were all turned down and ready for the children to slide right into.

My boss and her family were greeted upon arrival by a live-in staff member even though it was 2 AM. The following morning Julia made sure to personally greet my boss and her family, and made herself personally available if needed.

My boss was very pleased with the townhouse. The townhouse was everything she envisioned; beautifully and tastefully decorated turn of the 19th century house, with high ceilings. There also was a very pretty courtyard, nice and spacious terrace. She was quite impressed and happy with my selection.

Julia's pre-arrival packet was so thorough and helpful. She really has thought of everything. If you want a worry-free, safe, quite, centrally located, beautiful place to stay, look no further. This townhouse will not disappoint.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely time at the 5th Ave Townhouse. Our family loved being steps from Central Park and having access to so many amazing restaurants and shops in the area. We enjoyed having the kitchen and housekeeping everyday which is an uncommon service for vacation rentals. We loved the charm and the history of the building and we appreciated very much the hospitality of our hosts Julia and Claudio Zanetti.
