This distinguished single-family home is one of a series of Queen Anne style brick townhouses built in the late 1880s along 85th Street between Central Park West and Columbus. The wonderfully asymmetrical façade of the Queen Anne style features a pitched gable roof line, bay windows on the garden and parlor floors, and an alternating pattern of two and three windows on the upper floors. From the stained glass skylight that illuminates the grand central staircase, to the original butler’s pantry with china cabinet and marble basin, to the six decorative fireplaces, each unique in its design, No. 53 has five floors of rich architectural details that preserve the essence of the building. With ten generously sized rooms and four full bathrooms, the 4800 SF home offers the flexibility to create numerous bedrooms, a library, office, media, or exercise room. The eat-in kitchen features nearly floor to ceiling windows that look out to the verdant landscaped garden. On the parlor floor, the formal dining room spans the full width of the building and has 12 Ft. ceilings. The living room with its bay windows and original wood shutters faces south and gets sunlight all day long. The building has central A/C and separate zones for each floor and a full basement with tall ceilings that provides enviable storage. Ideally located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, 53 West 85th Street is close to the park, transportation, schools, museums, shops and restaurants.

Additional features of this property include: 5 zone Central A/C.

Upper West Side

Upper West Side

Living in the Upper West Side

Tucked between the lush green of Riverside Park and Central Park, the Upper West Side is a pristine neighborhood with a surprisingly leisurely pace of life. Its tree-lined streets, well-kept townhouses and village-like charm make it one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city – not to mention the breathtaking Hudson River views. A vibrant performing arts community also helps add to its prestige. Home to Lincoln Center and a wealth of museums, the Upper West Side has long been a hotspot for actors, artists and writers. There’s a bohemian, intellectual vibe that permeates the independent bookstores and airy bistros lining the sidewalks. Although the area can feel worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of downtown, residents here are well-connected. The 1, 2 and 3 subway lines stop on Broadway’s main strip, and the A, B, C and D trains all connect to Central Park West.
