A rare treasure on the Upper West Side! This handsome circa 1900-built townhouse is a stunning example of prewar elegance. The 6,000 square foot home with 5 stories plus a basement and 3 units sits on a lovely tree-lined streets, just a block from Central Park and all conveniences. It is truly a special offering that affords you the opportunity to live in as is, or create an amazing custom space suited to your taste and needs.
The inviting front stoop accesses a marble lobby for 2 of the gracious residences. Up the stairs is a generous 6-bedroom, 2,000+ sq ft quadruplex with 3 outdoor spaces. The other is a first-floor, floor-through one-bedroom apartment with an open living area or office, kitchenette, full and half baths, a reception area, and private deck.
The 4-story unit is light-bathed, grandly-proportioned, and perfect for entertaining. Its main level features an elegant living room with floor-to-ceiling glass and dining room with fireplace, flanking a huge island kitchen for the chef. This level also has a balcony, terrace, and half bathroom.
Floor 2 offers a bedroom with en-suite bath, an additional bedroom, a full hall bath, and large walk-in closets. A level up presents another 2 bedrooms, one with a charming fireplace, and an enormous walk-in closet with custom cabinetry leading to the luxurious 5-fixture primary bath. On the 5th story are 2 more bedrooms with airy ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, each with a private roof deck for outdoor enjoyment.
The garden level with a separate entrance beneath the stoop is commercially-zoned and excellent for income/tax deduction purposes. A sprawling open loft area comes with 2 half baths, plus there's a bonus room for an office or bedroom, a recreation room, and garden access.
