Property Description for 51 West 95th Street

Experience the Best of Both Worlds: Fully Renovated Classic Townhouse Living
on a Prime Central Park Block with Modern Amenities

Part of a sophisticated row designed by Martin V.B. Ferdon, this late nineteenth-century townhouse is the epitome of elegance and a timeless renovation. A formal foyer and wide grand staircase invite “oohs” and “aahs” while connecting everyone to both the entertaining spaces as well as the heart of the home. Boasting 18-feet of width, the four bedroom, four full and one half-bath townhouse is generously appointed – not only with a beautiful chef’s kitchen, gorgeous moldings, high ceilings, rich walnut floors, and two sets of bay windows – but also with an array of integrated A/V system options, so much organized storage capacity, and two private outdoor spaces.

51 West 95th Street is located steps from Central Park, world-class schools, neighborhood shops and eateries, and all the Upper West Side subway lines. This is exactly what you pictured when you dreamed of townhouse living!

Garden Floor
Under the lovely front stoop is an informal entrance to the kitchen. Expansive and inviting, the kitchen is well-equipped with an elite Garland gas range, SubZero refrigerator, dishwasher, and two pantries. The rear of the floor is designed for elegant, yet relaxed entertaining. This huge space is shared by a formal living and dining room. It has ornate moldings, original chandeliers, and a wall of glass doors leading out to the garden. A powder room and coat closet complete the floor. This entire floor is perfection for indoor/outdoor entertaining.

The townhouse garden is an oasis with mature trees that provide both shade and privacy for the wood deck and bluestone patio. There is an irrigation system and recent upgrades have made the garden a secure oasis.

Parlour Floor
A double vestibule provides a formal entrance to the parlour floor. Just beyond, soaring ceilings and a wide foyer are welcoming as the grand staircase beckons one to the floors above. The parlour front hosts a den with two tall windows. There is also access to a coat closet as well as a full bathroom with a pedestal sink and shower stall just off the foyer.

The rear of the floor is reminiscent of a traditional grand parlour. Highlights include: a huge picture window, a working fireplace with a handsome wood mantle that is flanked by built-in bookshelves, wet bar, a recessed projector and screen, and ample room for a grand piano.

Third Floor
Upon entering the third floor you are welcomed to the start of the private quarters. A primary bedroom suite is located at the rear of the floor. It features a sizable bedroom overlooking the garden and an elegant bathroom with a clawfoot soaking tub, a large vanity with double vessel sinks, and a spacious shower stall. There are also two walk-in closets adjacent to the dressing area. The front of the floor is occupied by a second bedroom with a spectacular bay window. Another full bathroom, linen closet, and deep coat closet complete the floor.

Fourth Floor
Ascend the stairs to the top floor and bask in a sun-soaked landing that serves as a bonus sitting area with a built-in snack bar. The front of the floor hosts a bedroom suite with the same bay window footprint and splendidly high ceilings as the floor below plus a walk-in closet and private full bathroom. The fourth floor rear is separated from the landing by pocket doors. It is a flex room suitable for a bedroom or home office. It boasts two closets and access to a large terrace.

The townhouse cellar was excavated to create more ceiling height. It is exceptionally tidy and partially finished with separate rooms for laundry, mechanicals, storage, and even a separate climate-controlled room for a generous wine cellar.

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.
