Property Description

Rarely does a CPW block townhouse which has been lived in and beloved by its owners and creators become available. At 12 West 95th, the owners have completed a several years long restoration of a historic 5 bedroom, 6 bath home. This is one of the finest move in condition contemporary townhomes on the Upper West Side. Drawing on their designer and contractor's many years of experience, the owners have taken the original late 19th Century Beaux Arts bow front home and rebuilt it, selectively restoring woodwork and plaster work, retaining the original grand ceiling heights, added top of the line kitchens and baths, installed an elevator, a fully equipped gym, added a penthouse roof terrace. The owners have created an audiophiles dream with a multi zoned Sonos sound system and video systems. The home has become a marvelous entertaining venue where music, theatre and sports luminaries have gathered.

Kitchen is 15' x 18' and feels larger as it flows into the breakfast dining room, the rear garden and butler's pantry. A kitchen for cooks to truly enjoy, it has an island counter, all Subzero, Wolf and Miele appliances. The butler's pantry has a second dishwasher and wine cooler. The formal dining room comfortably seats 10 and comes with an impressive fireplace. The 600 sq ft planted garden has a barbecue, nighttime lighting and auto watering. There is a guest bath and laundry located on this floor as well.

Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
