      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

      Upper West, from Central Park West to the Hudson River, 59th Street (excluding Columbus Circle) to 110th Street.

      Every ten blocks of the Upper West Side seem to have its own character. The 70s and 80s have their share of “Classic Six” prewar apartments (that’s two bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and kitchen plus a room for the maid or domestic staff, sometimes used as a home office) as opposed to a “Classic Seven,” which has all these rooms in addition to another bedroom. Along Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side, some grand-scale apartment buildings with magnificent river views perfectly match the street’s name. Meanwhile, the southern bit of the Upper West Side embraces the Time Warner Center, which has some of the most spectacular luxury condos in the city, along with high-end shops like Coach and Hugo Boss, once-in-a-lifetime eateries like Per Se, and a giant subterranean Whole Foods that seems to have the capability to hold every resident of the Upper West Side at once.
