318 West 71st Street - $5,890,000
This Renaissance Revival style townhouse located on a rare cul-de-sac just off West End Avenue is a historic beauty ready to be transformed. Four stories currently configured as two duplexes, each of the floors has unusually high ceilings, and two floors offer cavernous open floor plans. This is a remarkably bright house throughout. The lower duplex is configured as a 2 bedroom, 2 full and 2 half bath unit with garden access and a wrap-around terrace off the kitchen. The upper duplex is a 3 bedroom, 2 full and 1 half bath unit. The 4-story extension gives every floor an extra room. The house retains some period character with original wood floors, stair case, 5 original fireplace mantels, 24 high baseboards and foliate plaster molding details. The house will be delivered vacant August 2014.
Steps away from Lincoln Center and Riverside Park, the 33 houses on this quiet block were specifically designated by the New York City Landmarks Commission as a rare harmonious package and a view into a specific architectural era. The preservation of the original style and character of the buildings on this block set it apart as a special area of Manhattan with a unique sense of place.
