Property Description

CAPTIVATING LATE 19TH CENTURY TOWNHOUSE Discretely located in the heart of the West 71st Street Historic District is this stunning Renaissance Revival style home built circa 1894, designed by Architects Horgan and Slattery. Venetian Renaissance influence in the five-story townhome is most apparent in the facade’s terra-cotta ornamentation over a light brick exterior. However, it is when you step inside this majestic home that you are transported to another era. The welcoming gallery crowned with beamed ceilings and wood paneling sets the stage. Here a gas fireplace illuminates this warm entry as you ascend the stairs to discover 12.5 impressive rooms comprised of formal living and formal dining rooms, parlor sitting room, 6 bedrooms, office, 4 bathrooms and 2 kitchens, all cooled by central air, plus 2 outdoor areas. Situated ideally to capture southern light from all front-facing rooms with predominant windows, this home offers abundant natural light and magnificent atmosphere. PARLOR FLOOR: Exquisite quarter-sawn oak wainscoting anchors the parlor level beneath 11 ft ceilings. Each room can be separated by pocket doors to create intimacy for the perfect dinner party or opened for the grand-scale entertaining this home demands. If catering an event, there is a second garden-level kitchen as well. The primary chef’s kitchen seamlessly incorporates an original display cabinet into the design which includes a Wolf range, Subzero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, wine storage, two sinks and original oak double-swing doors. The formal living room has a grand decorative fireplace and a dramatic wall of windows. THIRD FLOOR: This level is where you will find the primary bedroom suite complete with a tumbled marble spa bathroom boasting a steam shower for two and a luxurious spa tub. The adjacent dressing room provides storage and essential separation from the front bedroom. Currently this room is set up as a library/sitting room adorned with rich period details that so beautifully dominate this extraordinary home. FOURTH FLOOR: This floor houses two large bedrooms and two renovated bathrooms; one en suite and the other with a spa tub and skylight. Each well-proportioned bedroom enjoys a decorative fireplace and 10.5 ft ceilings. The hallway features a custom designed stained-glass skylight. FIFTH FLOOR: Here resides another bedroom plus the ideal home office with direct access to the roof terrace; a perfect spot for fresh air and inspiration. GARDEN FLOOR: This level provides space for a guest suite with access to the garden patio, complete with a kitchen, bathroom and the front gallery/living room. While part of the main home, there is lovely separation and privacy for long-term guests or secondary home office set-up. A staircase from the garden level leads to the basement where you’ll find the laundry room, mechanicals and additional storage. In total this home offers 5,630 sf (4,701 sf above-grade finished). This Landmarked Beaux-Arts beauty is situated quietly on a coveted cul-de-sac block. Enjoy quintessential New York living just a few blocks from Lincoln Center, retail shopping, marketing, restaurants, transportation, Riverside Park and Central Park and then come home to this stunning piece of history.

Quick Profile

Centered, in name and location, around the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Square’s history is heavily steeped in strong African American and Afro-Caribbean roots. Iconic jazz pianist, Thelonious Monk, is counted among its many former artistic and professional denizens.

The neighborhood is beloved for its amazing shopping, its distinguished art scene, and phenomenal restaurants--and don’t forget Central Park. From Lincoln Square, one is at the gateway to virtually everything New York City has to offer, either in your backyard or via excellent subway access.

With its beautiful pre-war architecture surrounded by some of NYC’s premier skyscrapers, Lincoln Square has become a safe, much sought after neighborhood. If you like living in the action, there are few places in the world that can rival Lincoln Square.
