With its coveted address, architectural legacy and spectacular, state-of-the-art upgrades, this stunning Upper West Side townhouse has been meticulously crafted for luxury and comfort. Designed in 1892 by Thom & Wilson, the home has been reimagined for the 21st century and beyond.
Unlike the typical cosmetic re-do, the building has been strengthened with a new foundation, new structural steel columns from the basement to the roof, all new structural steel joists and beams on every floor, as well as waterproofing and fireproofing. The entire home has been brought up to code, with new energy-efficient Marvin windows, central air and radiant heat on every floor, new roofing, and new plumbing, electrical, security, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems. An elevator accesses floors 1-5 and a new bulkhead provides easy access to the roof.
To complement this comprehensive reconstruction, the home’s interior has been totally updated to maximize natural light, city views and easy flow for comfortable living and impressive entertaining. Luxury finishes include beautiful white oak floors with radiant heating, a glass staircase, Italian crystal pendants by Il Pezzo Mancante and custom Italian cabinetry. The chef’s kitchen features top-of-the-line professional-grade appliances, plus a home office off the dining room is plumbed as an optional catering kitchen.
Lavish living and entertaining spaces and the home’s five en-suite bedrooms look out upon treetops and city vistas, plus spacious balconies and terraces, as well as a private, entry-floor garden. The home’s additional features include a media/entertaining room with a wet bar, an expansive rooftop terrace plus a lower-level fully finished and conditioned as a recreation/gym space, storage and a second laundry room.
Newly completed and never lived in, this West End Collegiate Historic District residence is eminently walkable. Convenient to shopping, dining and theatre, it is located between Central Park and Riverside Park minutes from Lincoln Center, the Museum of Natural History, Fairway, Citarella and Zabar’s.
