Step onto the brownstone stoop of this beautiful, light-filled townhouse and immediately lay your eyes on Central Park just half a block away. Across the street is the historic Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, one of the oldest private schools in the United States. This part of the tree-lined West 94th is so open and quiet it feels more like another era: Edith Wharton's New York.
This turn-of-the-century home perfectly balances contemporary comfort with timeless elegance: its renovations and state-of-the art kitchen complement the high ceilings, ornate stained glass, and beautiful carved woodwork.
Sweeping front-door steps lead to this gorgeous brownstone on an equally immaculate street. At a roomy 5,221 square feet, this 18-foot wide townhouse features four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a finished cellar, private garden, and ample room for entertainment.
The front door opens to the entry foyer and its restored millwork, and then into the parlor floor and the family room with its stunning wood detail and crown molding. Here you also find one of the home’s seven fireplaces exquisitely adorned with Trent tiles and opulent mantels. Three of the wood-burning fireplaces are newly lined and fully functional. Walking through the great room leads to the formal dinning room and then the serving kitchen.
One floor up the staircase, with its original woodwork banisters, elaborate newel cap, and refined nineteenth-century detail, is the study room and master bedroom suite. In addition to its large walk-in closets, dressing room with custom built-ins, and vanity is a glass solarium bathroom extension with radiant floor heating. Another floor up leads to the penthouse with its two abundant bedrooms, two bathrooms, an impressive walk-in closet, and stained glass skylight.
The garden level includes the sumptuous family room with its spacious open-floor plan, ultimately leading through the informal dining room to a beautifully renovated open kitchen with brand-new appliances and built in industrial-quality espresso machine. The kitchen is flooded with natural light from double French doors. These open to the landscaped garden and its cherry, fig, and pear trees, for moments of outdoor tranquility.
The cellar level includes a playroom with custom built-ins, bountiful closets and storage space, a wine cellar, laundry room, and full bathroom.
