Situated on a quiet tree-lined block, 266 West 71st Street embraces the charm of the Victorian Age and is a classic example of distinguished townhouse living. With nearly 3,800 square feet of living space with plentiful FAR to build deeper, it is easily a single-family home, or an owner triplex plus a garden/cellar duplex rental. Bring your contractor or just move in!
From rich wainscoting and custom cabinetry to the stately stairwell, no detail has been overlooked in the architectural artistry and restoration of this gracious home. It also boasts three working fireplaces, leaded stained-glass throughout, luxurious Jacuzzi bathtubs, and a rear parlour terrace that overlooks a serene South-facing garden complete with koi pond. Located at the crossroads of the Upper West Side, this townhouse is on a great block and full of possibilities. Plus, Riverside Park and Central Park are both nearby – an easy walk with or without your happy dog – as well as Lincoln Center, Trader Joe’s, Fairway Market, and the express subways.
