From the Luxury Listings NYC website: For those who don’t like sharing their parks with (too many) others, consider this townhouse at 238 East 49th Street, which provides access to the largest private garden in New York City.

Said garden runs the full length of 49th Street between Second and Third avenues and is the joint responsibility of all neighbors on the block, including Mary-Kate Olsen and her fiancé Oliver Sarkozy, half-brother of the former president of France.

The five-story, 4,500-square-foot rental was built in 1866 and is on the market for $21,900 a month. In addition to the garden, the house also includes some one-of-a-kind features, like an 18th-century Grand Salon that was imported piece by piece from France and a chandelier that belonged to Yoko Ono.
