Sophisticated Luxury in the Heart of the West 80s
Gut Renovation Near Completion
If you’ve been looking for the opportunity to customize an iconic New York City townhouse, this Upper West Side building is for you. The historic façade has been restored and is one of four in a gorgeous row on West 88th Street. Inside, the townhouse has been completely gutted, and is the site of exciting, new construction. All of the architectural design, permitting, framing, and installation of top-of-the-line systems is finished. It is now ready for your vision and custom finishing touches.
Highlights include: a fabulous double-height ceiling at the rear of the garden and parlour floors; an incredible glass elevator that ascends through the center of the townhouse from the cellar to fifth floor; efficient radiant heat throughout; a new bonus floor with two roof decks; a wonderful South-facing garden surrounded by low-profile townhouses. Set on a beautiful tree-lined street near Central Park, the Museum of Natural History, and great shopping, this 18-foot, 5-story, single family is ideal for high-end, sophisticated townhouse living.
The garden floor is designed as a wonderful gathering space. The layout includes an informal family room with fireplace at the front of the floor, a central kitchen that has a unique wood-burning oven (the last of its kind to be approved in NYC), and a luxurious rear dining room with garden access.
Entering from the townhouse stoop leads to the formal parlour floor. The front is configured as a living room with a show-stopping fireplace, marble staircase, and access to the central glass elevator. The design for the rear of the floor reveals a distinguished study or library that overlooks the dining room below. It will get amazing sunlight as it benefits from a wall of windows and the double-height ceiling that extends up from the garden level. A powder room is also located on the parlour floor.
The third floor design includes two spacious bedroom suites. The rear suite overlooks the garden while the front bedroom features a large bow window, a piece of classic townhouse architecture. Each suite has its own private, full bathroom.
The fourth floor will host a stylish Master Suite. A gracious bedroom situated at the rear of the floor will be large enough for a private lounge or informal sitting area. The master bathroom is designed as a luxurious marble and glass retreat. It will feature a central soaking tub, steam shower, and double vanity. A walk-in closet completes the suite.
The fifth floor is a completely new addition to the townhouse structure. This sun-drenched bonus floor will accommodate a sitting room, a bedroom with en-suite bath, and front and rear roof decks.
The cellar layout includes a sauna, full bathroom with steam shower, laundry room, and separate mechanical rooms. Top of the line mechanical systems are already installed, and the townhouse is pre-wired for low voltage lighting and smart home automation.
