Possibilities abound in this classic Renaissance Revival townhouse. Located steps from Central Park on the best block, 64 West 85th Street contains 10 rental units, 9 of which are free market. It is an ideal property for anyone who is looking for a live-with-income opportunity or a solid investment with a robust rent roll.
Each sunny unit is nicely finished and move-in ready with renovated kitchens and baths. There is great ceiling height throughout, and some units also feature lovely details such as exposed brick and original hearths and mantelpieces. Move over, both of the garden level units have additional living space as they duplex down to the lower level via spiral staircases. The townhouse also boasts a beautiful rear garden and roof terrace off the unit in the fifth-floor rear. Each of these outdoor spaces will be in high demand given the current status of the pandemic.
For those looking to enhance the approximately 7,200 square feet of living space, it is possible to convert the property to an owner’s duplex with six rental units, an owner’s triplex with four rental units, or an owner’s quadraplex with two rental units for income to help offset the property expenses. The property also comes with proposed plans to convert to an expansive and luxurious single-family townhouse. There is an option to finish the rooftop as a terrace, or, in a single-family conversion, an option with a rooftop pop-up addition that would open to a finished rooftop terrace.
When it comes to Upper West Side townhouses, 64 West 85th Street is a must-see for any buyer. It’s an unbeatable location and priced to sell.

The elegant styling of a traditional townhouse reimagined in modern grandeur is exactly what you find at 44 West 95th Street. All original four stories of the townhouse have been gut renovated, then a fifth floor and roof deck were built to complete the plan by Adam Cassino Design. Each and every decision has been curated by the owner, not a developer, to maintain a unique character and ensure high-end finishes.
Highlights of the townhouse include: open layout and a chef’s kitchen on the parlour floor; six bedrooms; six and three-half baths; cedar and teak-lined sauna; elevator access on all floors; three working gas fireplaces; plus five outdoor spaces. Notable materials and finishes such as Calacatta Gold marble, Travertine, Furniture Guild vanities, and Brizo faucets take this townhouse to a new level of luxury. Additionally, all of the utility connections inside and out are brand new and include bonus features such as radiant heat, independent cooling and heating zones for each room, and smart home wiring throughout.
Live in luxury on the Upper West Side. Boasting a superb location just steps from Central Park, neighborhood eateries, and Whole Foods, 44 West 95th Street is a showstopper.
Through the front courtyard and under the stoop, a casual mudroom entrance with built-in benches and cabinets welcomes you to the garden floor. Once shoes are tucked away and coats hung, hang a left into the guest bedroom or proceed down the hall to the family room. The front bedroom features two large windows and an ensuite bathroom. The rear of the floor is open and airy. Configured like a great room with direct garden access through a wall of glass doors, the rear family room has a wet bar, space for billards or other games, and a separate seating area with a Travertine-clad fireplace. There is also a powder room accessible on this floor.
Beyond the family room lies an outstanding townhouse garden. Highlights include: a Bluestone surface, full fencing, custom-built benches and planters to preserve mature trees, and a gas BBQ.
Double doors provide a formal entrance to the parlour, and open to reveal a lovely vestibule with marble floor. Just beyond, soaring ceilings, wide windows, and harmonious design abound. A formal living and dining room share the oversized parlour front, which has a gas fireplace with custom mantlepiece and hearth made of Calacatta Gold marble. The middle of the floor contains a closet and contemporary powder room with gold studded Phillip Jeffries wallpaper. The elevator can also be accessed here. The parlour rear is occupied by a breathtaking chef’s kitchen complete with Lauriermax cabinetry, touch sinks, Wolf and SubZero appliances, and a huge Cambria-slab island. There is also a banquette area with a flexible, marble-topped table for more casual eat-in opportunities. A wall of glass bi-fold doors separates the kitchen from a large terrace that descends into the garden below.
The third floor hosts a delightful, oversized master suite. Double doors open to a sitting room that leads to the rear study. Natural light floods in from South-facing windows, and a gorgeous fireplace featuring floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble serves as a focal point for the room. His and hers closets can be found opposite the sitting room, and on the way towards the luxurious master bathroom at the front of the floor. Adorned in more Carrara marble, the bathroom is a sparkling “jewel box.” It features a Hastings soaking tub, steam shower with dual heads, and a double vanity. A gracious bedroom sits adjacent to the bathroom.
Two additional bedrooms are found on the fourth floor. Both are incredibly spacious, full of light, and feature walk-in custom closets and stylish ensuite baths with individualized mosaic tile patterns and fixture profiles. The rear bedroom also has a private terrace that overlooks the garden below. A large laundry room with ample counter space and storage cabinets is also situated on this floor.
The uppermost floor of the townhouse is a brand new addition, and features a front bedroom with ensuite bathroom, large custom closet, and a private balcony. The rear of the fifth floor is occupied by a lounge or home office with a wall of windows and French doors that open to a terrace. This area could be converted into an additional bedroom if six are not enough. There is also a centrally located full bathroom, and an extension of the main staircase that leads up to a roof deck.
The cellar of the townhouse is fully-finished, and efficiently uses every inch of space. The front of the floor contains a climate-controlled wine room, and a large sitting or play room with window wells that allow in natural light and fresh air. The front room also provides access to all of the mechanicals, which have been integrated into hidden wall panels. The remainder of the cellar is dedicated to relaxation, and includes a spa-like bathroom with steam shower and a spacious cedar sauna. A subway-tiled laundry room completes the floor.

Located just a short walk from the High Line and Hudson Yards, this Chelsea multi-family townhouse is a unique find. Boasting twenty feet of width, it contains an owner’s duplex with three gracious bedrooms and an amazing rear garden. The third and fourth stories host floor-through, free-market apartments. They are well-appointed and delightfully sunny.
During a 2017 renovation, the front façade and roof were replaced, and an extension was added to the parlour and garden floors. The owner’s duplex was also completely refreshed with an open layout, new kitchen, and industrial architectural elements.
448 West 25th Street is rife with opportunity for those interested in living with income or single-family. There is potential to add more square footage onto the rear of the townhouse, and the price range is unbeatable for such a prime location.
A major highlight of the townhouse is the spectacular garden. It’s a city oasis with a high privacy fence, two blooming trees, manicured flower beds, and stone surface. When it’s finally time to come inside, a private staircase leads down into the sunken master bedroom of the owner’s duplex. Bright and minimalist, the bedroom features large windows, custom closets, and a half bathroom.
Double doors open from the master bedroom to reveal the heart of the garden floor and showcase a restored stone wall and industrial-style staircase. Across from the stairs is a cozy den or home office, which is set-apart by a wall of glass and features a working fireplace and more custom shelving.
A long hallway containing five built-in closets leads past a laundry room and full bathroom, complete with double vanity and large walk-in shower. A third, nicely-sized bedroom is situated at the front of the garden floor. There is a discrete door within the room that leads to the townhouse’s mechanicals, as well as a door that provides access to the street under the stoop.
A tidy vestibule welcomes all residents home, and allows them to part ways either up the stairs to two apartments or into the owner’s duplex. Once inside, the parlour floor embraces an open concept and creates the opportunity for every room to have a view of the rear garden. The front of the floor has two large windows and can be used as a bedroom or home office. It is separated from the kitchen by a glass wall. The kitchen itself makes an efficient use of space and features ceiling-height custom cabinets, a hidden pantry, a black granite countertop, and high-end appliances including a SubZero, gas range, and dishwasher.
A combined living room and dining room occupy the remainder of the floor, and take advantage of a rear extension with a wall of glass doors that open onto a terrace. Spacious and inviting, this space – both indoor and out – is ideal for entertaining. A centrally located full bathroom completes the floor.
The upper floors of the townhouse contain two sunny, floor-through apartments. Each apartment features a large living room with stone mantelpiece, central kitchen with modern appliances and pass-through counter, full bathroom with classic subway tile, and plenty of storage space. There are three spacious bedrooms in each apartment. One is located at the front of each floor and separated from the living room by lovely French doors. The other two are situated at the rear of the floor and each have a large window and closet.

Thank you so much for your expertise in selling my townhouse. After falling victim to the Madoff scheme, I needed to sell my townhouse on East 30th Street, despite the down market. I listed with two of the biggest real estate brokerage firms in the City, but neither of them got results. Then my attorney referred me to Vandenberg. You and your indefatigable team produced thirteen bids. In the end, you clinched the deal that worked for me. I even made some money despite existing liens on the house. Your patience and negotiating skills made this sale as easy as it could possibly be. Thank you.
The townhouse we bought a few years ago was our first foray into this type of property. Having rent-stabilized tenants has been far more challenging that we ever imagined! Dexter’s weekly newsletter offers insight, inspiration, and information. When we are ready to sell and start all over again, we know where to go for advice and help with the sales and purchasing process.
My business partner and I attempted to sell our West 90th Street property and initially gave the exclusive to another Broker. Despite extensive periods of promotion and advertisement, the property did not sell. As we watched other properties move on the market, it became clear to us that we needed Dexter Guerrieri’s expertise in townhouse sales. Dexter’s area knowledge, innovation and perseverance were unsurpassed and, in short order, he ultimately obtained an excellent price. He is truly a Broker’s Broker!
