A mint, newly gut-renovated townhouse with an elevator servicing all six floors on a prime Central Park Block in the most convenient part of the Upper West Side.
The entire house was gutted to the core and re-built over a two year period retaining many of the elegant pre-war details while installing every modern convenience to meet the demands of todays lifestyle. A gracious porch stairway leads you to the front door where an entry vestibule welcomes you. The paneled entry gallery leads to an impressive twin parlor floor with a charming bow window overlooking 71st Street that is lined with mature London plane trees, perfect for entertaining on a lavish scale or a cozy get-together in front of the charming fireplace.
Grand, 12 foot ceilings and meticulously restored molding details define this space creating the perfect canvas that accommodates both a very traditional or super-modern decoration style. The Parlor includes a large area for formal dining, connected via a second (service) stairway to the kitchen below.
The Garden Floor houses a front bedroom suite with a separate entrance, perfect for a guest or housekeeper, as well as the large eat-in kitchen expertly equipped with the best cabinetry, appliances and sleek countertops. A dumb waiter allows you to transport food to the dining room above. This loft-like space leads out to the courtyard garden, just one of the outdoor spaces and perfectly suited to al fresco dining.
The Atelier/Cellar level has been excavated to feature a media room/playroom, a massive wine cellar, a large laundry room and additional storage.
The third floor (accessed via the splendid main stairway) is entirely dedicated to the Master suite with an enormous bedroom, an abundance of closet space and an impressively scaled bathroom, resplendent with a free standing tub perched in the bow window overlooking the tree-lined block.
There are six bedrooms in total. The fourth and fifth floors each house two bedrooms and two beautifully appointed bathrooms and great closet space.
The rooftop features a large seating area with superb, open, protected views to the south overlooking Manhattan. A glamorous hot tub is the bonus!
The entire house is finished with wide hardwood Oak flooring and is equipped with ducted, zoned central air conditioning and heating, with radiant heated floors in all the bathrooms and pre-wiring for electric shades and smart home technology.
This part of the Upper West Side is considered super-prime, just moments from Central Park, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, all transportation, shopping, retail, restaurants and so much more that makes this neighborhood the most desirable and refined in all of New York.
