Property Description

Elegance and Opulence on the Most Handsome West 80s Row
20-Footer, Steps from Riverside Park

On one of the most attractive, quiet, tree-lined Riverside Drive side streets, in the middle of an undisturbed row of brownstones, this 20-foot townhouse features not only a fabulous owner's duplex (potentially a triplex), but also six one-bedroom apartments with a fine balance of original details and modern amenities.

The owner's duplex offers a large sun-drenched kitchen with room for a breakfast table at its windows. The kitchen is open to a spacious dining room and a gracious living room with 12 foot ceilings. The living room retains oak wainscoting, tiled fireplace, and its original parquet and inlaid flooring, with windows facing a magnificent magnolia tree in the back yard. This parlor floor also has a large coat closet with double-hung tiger maple doors, a bar, and bathroom.

The main entrance with carved oak details, a large mirror, and original elegant light fixture, leads from a wide stoop both to the duplex, and to the six apartments upstairs.

Owner's Duplex Garden Level:
A seldom used entrance under the stoop leads to the garden level. Here you find a handsome front bedroom and half-bathroom just off the main hallway. A commodious master bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate dressing area occupies the middle of the floor. At the rear lies a comfortable family room with French doors that allow in sunlight as well as access to the garden. Beyond the family room is a second bedroom that opens out to the garden. Architectural highlights of this floor include exposed brick walls, two fireplaces, original wood floors, and a beamed ceiling in the family room.

Owner's Duplex Parlour Level:
Ascend the wide, limestone stoop to the main hall where you will behold masterful Victorian fretwork as well as ornate wainscoting and an elegant central staircase. Enter the owner's duplex to discover a lovely open floorplan with twelve-foot ceilings, ideal for entertaining guests. The spacious front kitchen has enormous windows, butcher block countertops, and numerous cabinets. A large, central dining room flows seamlessly into a formal living room complete with a fireplace and garden view. This was the grand formal dining room when this townhouse was built ? the most important room in the house. The rear pocket door leads to a quaint library with built in bookshelves and access to a small terrace. A full bathroom is also located on this floor.

Third, Fourth, and Fifth Floors:
All apartments on these floors are gracious one-bedrooms. Each bright, thoughtfully laid out unit has elements of the original, rich building design with beautiful oak doors and large closet space. They also contain comfortable modern kitchens and baths. Additionally, the fourth floor rear apartment has a private terrace.

Cellar:
With private access from the owner's unit as well as ample room for storage, mechanicals, and laundry, this tidy and dry cellar is a homeowners dream. Since the ceiling height is just over seven feet, the space can be finished without excavation.
