Historic Townhouse Treasure
An Upper West Side historic treasure, this spacious 5-story townhouse with unique exterior architectural features is rich with an abundance of original and elegant details. The grand and gracious home with high ceilings and large windows boasts approximately 5,368 square feet of interior space plus over 1,220 square feet in the finished basement and an additional 840 square feet of outdoor space. Ornate moldings, intricate wood work, and hardwood floors are found throughout. Furthermore, six decorative fireplaces with original mantelpieces and stunning tile work pay homage to a bygone era. Bright and cheerful, the parlor level makes quite a first impression with soaring ceiling heights of almost 13 feet and a stately library with a masterful exposed-brick wall and separate home office with custom built solid wood bookshelves and desk. An expansive sun-drenched formal living room on the second floor is perfect for entertaining guests and provides beautiful tree-top views while the majestic dining room can easily accommodate formal dinner parties fit for a king. Situated between the two rooms is a spacious, renovated kitchen with granite counters and lots of wood cabinets. Four oversized bedrooms - including one with a private terrace that has views of the peaceful garden - two full bathrooms and separate laundry room are located on the top two floors. The garden level, offering a great prospect for income, is currently occupied by a dental office that shares access to the basement, but this level could be transformed into part of a newly designed single-family residence. A sublime retreat, the landscaped garden in the back is the perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Situated on a picturesque, tree-lined street, this gem is just one block from Central Park, multiple subway lines, and the crosstown bus. It is convenient to fine restaurants, cafes, charming fashion boutiques, grocery stores, parking, and the American Museum of Natural History. This is an estate sale for a townhouse that has been in the same family for generations and lovingly preserved for years. Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to buy more for less in today's market and create your dream home.
