The Glen Estate
Originally built around 1901, the Glen Estate is a private townhouse located on a picturesque block in New York City, moments from Gramercy Park.
The Glen Estate was superbly designed and re-built to the most exacting standards to meet the demands of modern lifestyle, the discrete new Glen-Gary brick facade with solid mahogany windows all expertly considered by architect Gregory Colston, blends seamlessly with the charming townhouse neighbors on the block.
