DEAL OF THE DECADE! Bring your architect and make millions! There has never been a better time to buy a townhouse on the Upper West Side, and this Clarence True Renaissance Revival style home, affords you an opportunity to create your own masterpiece! Of the nine single unit town homes currently on the market on the Upper West Side, none are priced below $17 Million, and few have as much original detail intact as this wonderful residence; therefore, this project is more of loving restoration than just a gut renovation!
As Jonathan Miller, of Miller Samuels was recorded saying, "If you bought a Manhattan townhouse 10 years ago, congratulations! That was a fabulous decision. The average price of Manhattan townhouses has increased more than 51 percent since 2005, while the median price is up 30 percent (price per square foot is up a whopping 90 percent). It is really a luxury niche market. Townhouses 'saw larger gains in all price indicators' over the last decade than the entire apartment market." There is no end in site - as Townhouses are a limited commodity in New York. They just don't make them any more.
627 West End Avenue has beautiful bones, original detailing, including 8 original fireplaces with glazed Trent Tiles (in nearly perfect condition); or, in the case of the living room, a beautiful marble mantle. Comprising approximately 6,300 square feet on five levels plus basement, it includes a grand entry hall, as well as a graceful staircase leading up to the wide parlor floor entry - separating an exquisite formal living room and dining room. This home has original plaster moldings adorning the ceilings, original crown molding throughout, along with mahogany inlay trim hardwood floors. Adjacent to the dining room is a kitchen with a back staircase that services the entire home and can easily be recreated as a site for an elevator. The parlor foyer is crowned by Roman arches and columns which distinguishes a staircase that tapers as it ascends. On the third floor is a library, with superb original mahogany bookcases and moldings. Three additional spacious bedrooms and two maid's rooms flesh out the third and fourth floors. In total, there are six full baths, two half baths, and a shaving closet. 627 West End Avenue enjoys the most desirable location on the Avenue at 90th Street, and is perfectly positioned on the West Side of a block that is bordered on all sides by other brownstones allowing for glorious light front and back.

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.
