Newly Renovated Eco-Townhouse with Elevator on Prime Park Block
53 West 71st Street
ANNOUNCEMENT: 53 West 71st Street is Officially the 2nd Building in Manhattan to receive a Passive House Certification!
This sunny and stunning single-family home will dazzle you with its openness and luxury. Tall windows flood every floor with sunlight, and a double-height ceiling on the garden floor makes a striking impression. With four different outdoor spaces and a coveted location, this is a home that will bring you endless delight.
Baxt/Ingui, premier residential architects, have completed breathtaking brand-new renovation, giving this house not only new splendor, but state-of-the-art systems. This is a “passive house,” which means it has been completely sealed against drafts. As a result, you have an ultra-efficient, ecologically sound home which takes less energy and money to keep warm, while keeping out noise and pests. A sophisticated ventilation system tempers the fresh air that constantly flows into the house. Triple-glazed windows are “passive house” certified and landmark approved, preserving both warmth and elegance.
Single-Family Townhouse, Newly Renovated with Loft-like Parlour Floor
154 West 73rd Street
This fully renovated 20-footer with South garden near Lincoln Center is move-in ready!
You’ll notice the attention to detail the minute you take off your shoes and feel the radiant warmth from these gorgeous floors. Leveled during the renovation, this stained quartersawn white oak floor with radiant sub-floor heating system provides luxurious underfoot heat throughout the house.
This parlour floor has an amazing open feel that is almost loft-like. Between the tall ceilings and ability to see all the way to the back of the building, this is a perfect space for entertaining.
Plentiful light, fresh air, and warmth flow through every floor. Original woodwork can be found throughout the house, including mirrors, wainscoting and stair banisters, which were all meticulously stripped to remove the old leaded varnish. The new stairs are sturdier and wider than most townhouse staircases, but retain the same look due to the original banisters, newels, and posts. The attention to detail even includes the custom doors: the colorful doorknobs have been wrought from beautiful gemstones and minerals.
The building features a Mitsubishi fresh air Energy Recovery ventilator system, which maintains a constant flow of fresh air through the carefully insulated building while re-capturing the discarded heat in the winter and the discarded cool air in the summer. An IQ Air microfilter system provides additional filtration of incoming air. The central Carel steam humidifier adds humidity to the incoming air in the dry winter months. New and reinforced beams were installed during the recent renovation to accommodate a future elevator south of the staircase. A central alarm system protects the house. Ceilings are all spring-mounted double sheetrock, which reduces sound transmission and provides greater fire protection.
Convert this extra-wide neo-Georgian mansion to the single-family home of your dreams, or move into the luxurious owner’s unit and collect rental income! High ceilings and majestic sweeping space, rare for a townhouse, define this secluded home. Located a short walk from Lincoln Center, this cul-de-sac block provides privacy as well as the advantages of a side street populated with turn-of-the-century townhouses. Designed by George Keister, an architect famous for such New York landmarks as the Apollo Theater, the Beaux-Arts style Belasco Theater, and the American Airlines Theater (Roundabout). He also designed the McAlpin-Miller House, which was purchased by the Carnegie family and is now part of the Cooper-Hewitt National Museum of Design.
