258 West 71st Street may be one of the most unique brownstones on the Upper West Side due to its location next to a small pocket park that was featured in the 2005 movie, Little Manhattan. This gorgeous Renaissance Revival-style property was originally constructed in 1892 and boasts elegant new finishes and mechanicals that blend seamlessly with gracious original details. A rare end-unit with sunlight on three sides, the townhouse includes 17 side windows, which flood the townhouse with natural light.

Off the back of the house will you will find a full-height glass extension with cantilevered glass balconies extending out from the top three floors. The glass curtain wall provides a modern look to both the interior and exterior of the building, adding nearly 1,000 square feet. An additional fifth floor above the original cornice includes a modern wall of windows extending across the entire front width of the building. Many of these extensions and windows could not be installed today as the neighborhood was subsequently landmarked.

The interior of the building has been gut renovated and rebuilt using modern metal framing, fiberglass insulation, and drywall. The building has been extensively waterproofed below grade and fully insulated throughout.

The cellar has been dug down 18" to increase the ceiling height and would be a perfect media room or recreation area. Radiant floor heating can be found on all five floors of the extension. Mechanicals, electrical, and plumbing are all modern and have been replaced or upgraded in the last 10 years.

The building provides the ultimate flexibility for a live-in user, with a back internal staircase allowing for multiple floors to be used together or separately depending on specific needs. This townhome is currently configured as a multi-family with 8 units, consisting of 4 studio apartments, two one-bedroom apartments, and two two-bedroom apartments. It could be easily converted to a single-family home without the need for an extensive renovation.

Ideally located, 258 West 71st Street is only moments away from city transportation and some of the best entertainment, shopping, museums, parks, and restaurants New York City has to offer.
