Part of a sophisticated row designed by renowned architects Thom and Wilson, this late nineteenth-century townhouse has been brilliantly restored to its intended single-family glory. Generously appointed with rich wood wainscoting, paneled high ceilings, border-inlaid hardwood floors, and large windows, each of the five floors has a sense of openness and grandeur.There are six fireplaces throughout as well as a magnificent staircase that connects formal entertaining spaces and private family bedrooms on the upper floors. A beautiful chef s kitchen, climate-controlled wine cellar, and two outdoors spaces including a private roof deck off the master suite and a lovely rear garden complete this must-see home. Additionally, no expense was spared on the recently redone stoop and facade, boasting an attractive combination of Roman brick and Renaissance stylings that adds to the quintessential Upper West Side streetscape found on this desirable block.The townhouse is located within walking distance of Central Park, Lincoln Center, world-class schools, classic neighborhood eateries, and all major transportation hubs.Garden Floor:Under the lovely front stoop is the entrance to a handsome guest suite with original Ash wainscoting, wood burning fireplace, and a private full bathroom.
