Located on a quiet, tree-lined street steps from West End Avenue and only a block from Riverside Park’s tranquility, this pristine townhouse is a quiet, peaceful haven and a live-with-income dream. Its unique design features provide four bucolic exposures (North, South, East and West), oversized windows throughout, and a skylight over the central stairwell. This is an exceptionally bright and delightful home – your own country house in the heart of NYC. Two of the five stories extend a full 100-feet deep allowing room for grand interior spaces as well as a lush rear garden deck on the parlour level and an upper floor terrace with the most verdant views on the Upper West Side. 270 West 91st Street is currently configured as an owner’s triplex and three free-market apartments. Each unit is in excellent condition and move-in ready.
Welcome home to this elegant owner’s triplex. Boasting more than 3,500 square feet of interior space along with beautiful original details and dramatically high ceilings throughout, it feels like a rambling country house. The parlour floor holds a grand living room with a charming fireplace and South and West garden views. To the South of this room is a sunny study with stairs that head to the garden level and French doors that lead to a lush rear garden deck. On the Northern side of the living room is a fabulous, updated kitchen with a breakfast bar that opens to a dining room, and a powder room. A library/home office is adjacent to the dining room at the front of the floor.
The upper floor of the triplex (third floor front of the townhouse) is reached via a spiral staircase surrounded by windows. The floor features a spacious master bedroom suite with beautiful original woodwork framing four huge windows, a fireplace, and large bathroom with separate tub and shower.
The garden level of the triplex can be accessed either by the rear stairs from the parlour floor or from the building’s main entryway. This floor hosts two extra-large bedrooms (both with ensuite baths), a generous family room with fireplace, and laundry closet with a sink and stacked washer/dryer combo.
Third Floor Duplex
A stellar duplex unit begins at the rear of the third floor. The main floor features a large living room with a fireplace and windows overlooking surrounding gardens and terraces, a wonderful chef’s kitchen with multiple workspaces, and a separate dining room or potential guest bedroom. There is also a full guest bathroom on this floor. Climbing the spiral staircase to the upper floor in the duplex leads you to a fabulous master suite with Eastern, Western and Southern exposures, a luxurious bathroom with skylights, and access to a private landscaped deck with serene idyllic views.
The front of the fourth floor is a one-bedroom apartment with oversized windows, tree-lined views from every window, and a kitchen with a passthrough to the dining area. The gracious living room has a charming nook with windows facing East and North. The unit also features a full bathroom with tub and skylight.
The rear half of the fifth floor holds a renovated, light-filled one-bedroom apartment with views of the sky and greenery from each room. Highlights include a windowed pullman kitchen, full bath with tub, and French-style pocket door. The roof is easily accessible offering an opportunity to create a roof-top garden.
The windowed cellar offers ample room for storage and mechanicals. It has the potential to connect with the owner’s unit to create an additional recreational space.
