PRESENTING a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an extraordinary mansion on a tree-lined block in one of New York’s most coveted neighborhoods. For the first time in over 40 years, the Joseph B. Thomas House, located at 135 East 19th Street, is being offered for sale at auction on March 13.

Built in 1901 and renovated into a “Gothic fantasy” in 1910 by renowned architect Frederick Sterner for banker/polo player Joseph B. Thomas, the picturesque house is located just one block south of Gramercy Park. In the early 1900’s, the breathtaking street between Irving Place and Third Avenue in the historic Gramercy Park neighborhood became known as a Block Beautiful.

Appraised in 2007 at $9,000,000, the five-story house is built approximately 22’ x 65’ and sits on a lot of approximately 22’ x 75’. The basement and first three floors are 22’ x 65’ and the top two floors are 22’ x 53’. The house features 6 bedrooms, including a large master bedroom and study on the third floor, 5.5 bathrooms, living room with double-height ceilings, two fireplaces, rear patio measuring 10’ x 22’ with an ornate fountain off the grand living room on the first floor, and much more.

The house was owned by legendary fashion designer and international socialite, Oleg Cassini. Cassini’s costume designs have been featured in Hollywood blockbusters from 1941-2009, and is most famous for dressing Jacqueline Kennedy while she was First Lady of the United States. He was famously married actress Gene Tierney, and engaged to Grace Kelly shortly after. His life is detailed in his autobiography, “In My Own Fashion.” (Simon & Schuster, 1987)

The $15 million mansion awaits its next owner to continue its legacy.
