Revel in the wonderful original details of this impeccably maintained Flemish Revival townhouse. Designed in 1889 by Joseph H. Taft, cousin of the 27th President of the United States, the building is a showpiece of his distinguished architectural style and expertise in combining design and decoration. From exquisite moldings and mantelpieces to intricate pillars, window cornices, and wainscoting, each floor reveals a new historical treasure that makes this a real Upper West Side find. With twenty feet of width, soaring ceilings, and exposed brick throughout, this building is perfectly suited to become a single-family or live-with-income opportunity. It is currently configured as ten free-market units that bring in more than $28,000 per month, including a rear duplex with access to a spacious private garden and patio. Located on the best Riverside Park Block, 310 West 89th Street is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, dog parks, playground, and great public transportation.
Enter on the garden level to access a front studio apartment as well as a rear one-bedroom duplex. The duplex has a combined living and dining area, updated “L-shaped” kitchen with dishwasher, two full baths, and a recreation room on the lower level. Exit through the rear bedroom to a spacious South-facing garden with ample patio space and beautiful large shade trees.
The parlour level hosts two one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments, with tremendous ceiling height. Both apartments have exposed brick, original fireplaces, storage lofts, and updated kitchens with dishwashers. The parlour front unit boasts enormous bay windows with original wooden shutters while the rear apartment has gorgeous parquet floors and wainscoting in the living area.
Third, Fourth and Fifth Floors:
All these floors have two one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments in the same configuration as the parlour floor. They contain the same exposed brick and fireplace details as well. The rear unit on the third floor has a private terrace overlooking the peaceful garden below. Additionally, the apartments on the fifth floor have original wood beamed ceilings and skylights.
