This 18’-wide townhouse on the historic “Doctor’s Row” is full of potential. From the original woodwork and fireplaces throughout, to the loft-like top floor, there is tremendous value to be found in this home. Enjoy the rental income from the free-market tenants, or use this home as the canvas for your very own single-family townhouse. With a five-minute walk to Central Park or the nearby subway, and a community garden just around the corner, this neighborhood has a great deal to offer. And at just $4,104, these taxes are unbeatable.
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, September 20th, from 11am-12:30pm
261 West 85th Street
16′ x 102′, Built 60′ deep
Beaux-Arts architect C. P. H. Gilbert, renowned for his opulent New York mansions and townhouses, created this five-story residence in 1895. From West 85th Street, near the corner of West End Avenue and the neighboring landmarked Clarence True house, you ascend wide front steps and enter under the graceful curve of a limestone façade. All the important original details remain, in mint condition, from the exterior’s artfully-carved façade to the carefully-restored interior wood staircase, windows and fireplaces. The current owners harmoniously added California Arts & Crafts style interior design. Practical “tilt and turn” windows are a modern amenity.
A peaceful two-level garden with fountain, and a two-level roof deck, with fully grown trees, climbing vines, grasses, and flowers, make a natural oasis for relaxing and entertaining. The luxury garden level duplex can be used for substantial rental income, or as an atelier or large home office.
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, September 20th, from 12pm-1:30pm
103 East 91st Street
19′ x 85.42′, Built 50′ deep
This gorgeous Beaux Arts townhouse in Carnegie Hill is truly one-of-a-kind. From the moment you enter, the scope of the double height living room takes your breath away. Original wood-burning fireplaces, charming round nautical windows, and stunning mahogany woodwork permeate this unique home. Amenities include three-zone central air conditioning and an audio/visual intercom on every floor. There are two different outdoor spaces, both with their own lighting and irrigation. And the Carnegie Hill location simply cannot be beat; it’s just one house off the corner of Park Avenue, a brisk seven-minute walk from Central Park and Museum Mile.
OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, September 20th, from 1pm-2:30pm
24 West 71st Street
20′ x 100.42′, Built 66′ deep
As featured in The New York Times. After being “restored to a level of museum polish that goes well beyond a house-tour gloss” (according to The New York Times) and setting the record in 1996 for the highest price on the Upper West Side, this one-of-a-kind, dazzling mansion is back on the market. Immaculately maintained, the six-bedroom, six and a half-bath townhouse has retained the gorgeous original details that infuse every corner, while augmenting them with opulence by Jonathan Rosen Interiors.
