Original details abound in this handsome turn-of-the century townhouse. A generous 22 feet wide, the house has 5 stories and encompasses over 7,600sf. Elevator access is from the garden level up to the 5th floor. The impressive scale of the house, combined with generously proportioned rooms, large windows, high ceilings and a staircase skylight create a sense of openness and light. A unique feature is a Great Room with 21-foot ceilings and doors leading onto a garden terrace. The flexible layout of the house can accommodate 6-8 bedrooms, 6 full baths and one powder room. The garden level entrance hallway leads to a studio apartment with ensuite bath and kitchen, a laundry room and additional bedroom with ensuite bath and home office with access to the south-facing planted garden. On the Parlor level is a large entry foyer which retains original wood paneling, pocket doors and a fireplace with carved mantel. Off the foyer is the formal dining room with alabaster decorative fireplace. Also on this level is an eat-in kitchen with built-in banquette and separate pantry. Facing the garden is a large living room with fireplace, magnificent coffered ceilings and over-sized windows. The 3rd floor Master Suite has a full ensuite bath, original marble vanity and tub, built-in closets and windowed dressing room. Also on this floor is a large front-facing bedroom with ensuite bath, decorative fireplace and large stained-glass bay windows. The 4th floor has two north-facing bedrooms with full bath. A sunny Great Room with fireplace, 21-foot ceiling, kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows, and French doors leading to a planted terrace make this room especially suited for entertaining. On the 5th floor is a large bedroom with built-in closets and full bath with skylight. An enclosed den has windows that open onto the Great Room below. The hallway has a large oval skylight. There is a full basement with storage/utility rooms and a wine cellar. The house has multi-zoned central A/C. Built circa 1891 and designed by architects Thom & Wilson. West 70th Street is part of the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District and gracious townhouses line the block on both sides of the street. The neighborhood is a well-known oasis of tranquility and beauty, only one block from Central Park but with every convenience of City life just around the corner. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a truly captivating and unique masterpiece.

Upper West Side
Living in the Upper West Side
The tree-lined side streets of the Upper West Side have a laid back residential feel that can make you feel you've left the city. Some of the blocks in this neighborhood are considered some of the most beautiful in New York and with good reason.
