Beaux-Arts Limestone Mansion on Best West Side Block
Opportunity is knocking very loud for this rare limestone 25-footer, half-a block from Central Park, with five-and a half stories and spectacular Central Park and City views from the roof terrace. Once restored, this mansion will be one of the most important townhomes on the Upper West Side. Built in 1899 by Cleverdon & Putzel, renowned architects of the day, this amazing property is vacant, broom clean and ready to be reimagined for the 21st century!
Three full-width gorgeous curved bay windows flood the home with light on three of the floors and ceilings soar to 14-feet. Approved plans envision living space of over 10,000 square feet, including three outdoor spaces (a rear yard with ample room for a lush garden and/or outdoor entertaining while the roof is envisioned as a two-floor deck with views overlooking Central Park, a luxurious primary suite with five-fixture spa bath, four additional en suite bedrooms (for a total of five bedrooms, though certainly more bedrooms could be added), chef’s kitchen with access to a landscaped south-facing garden, extraordinary living and dining spaces with volumes of light and space, fireplaces and a penthouse with wet bar, den and access to the roof terrace. A skylight floods the entire home with light. The cellar can be excavated to create room for a private gym, wine cellar and laundry. There is literally no shortage of possibilities! This rarely available townhouse is being offered “as is” and is now priced to sell!
