Tour Stop #4: 215 E. 36th Street

Backyard oasis

This two-family house displays its New Orleans influences on the exterior. The first floor apartment is open for the tour and is a pretty, updated space (with a baby grand in the entry). The real wow is the backyard, with its wisteria-covered seating area, brick fireplace with pizza oven, outdoor kitchen and enchanting two-level pond, deep enough for a soak.
