Property Description

Aficionados of Gilded Age New York will appreciate this one-of-a-kind studio in the coveted West 70s!!! Designed by Charles T. Mott in 1887, this Romanesque Revival mansion was once the home of the son and widow of President Ulysses S. Grant and later the home of Samuel Shaw, collector and patron of American Art. Formerly the mansion's Reception Room, this home is dripping in Old World charm. Peacefully quiet, it faces south and west through four oversized arched leaded glass windows complete with stained glass inlays. The flexible main room allows designated areas for sleeping, lounging, working and dining. Additional details include original moldings, a functioning antique Italian marble fountain, high ceilings, terra cotta floors, six dimmable wall sconces for perfect light and two closets. Completing this unique home are a renovated kitchen featuring cherry wood cabinets and full-size stainless-steel appliances and a windowed bathroom. This self-managed, seven unit converted mansion features central laundry and storage in the basement and is pet friendly. Desirably located on the corner of West 73rd and West End Avenue in one of the most vibrant and historic residential neighborhoods in Manhattan, this home is convenient to Fairway, Citarella, Trader Joe's, The Beacon Theater and the 1/2/3 subway lines and just one block from Riverside Park with its cafes, gardens, playgrounds, bicycle paths, sports fields, tennis courts and dog runs. The neighborhood offers wonderful shopping venues and great restaurants and easy access to Central Park, Lincoln Center and multiple cinemas. The stated monthly charges include the monthly maintenance of $792 plus two $370 assessments annually. Recent years' capital improvements include new roofing, repointing of the building, and modernization of electrical service to each apartment, replacement and code updates to boiler and hot water heaters.

Studio in Upper West Side


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.
