The first time on the market in 125 years and filled with gorgeous original details! This stunning Upper West Side brick and brownstone townhouse has has been well-loved and cared for by just two owners since it was built in 1888. With a semi-finished full-height basement and penthouse with front and back terraces, each distinctive story of this magnificent house is rich with distinctive details and finishes. In addition the yearly taxes are an extremely low $16,896, impossible to find today.

The ground level features an elegant formal dining room; a butlers pantry with copper sink and original woodwork; and a spacious kitchen with entry to a 665 square foot sunny south facing private garden perfect for entertaining.

The parlor floor has a front entrance graced by stained glass and a grand wooden staircase. The front parlor has 12.5-foot ceilings and a rare wide casement window which brings in additional light. The large and handsome library, which overlooks the garden, boasts a wood-burning fireplace, walls paneled with rich wood and exquisite built-in bookshelves.

The second floor has two large bedrooms, one in front which is full-width and has a gas fireplace, and one in back with a full bath. Between the bedrooms, pocket doors delineate very rare his-and-hers dressing areas, with oak cupboards and two charmingly hand-painted sinks--blue for him and pink for her, each with back mirror and set into a marble countertop.

Four more bedrooms, one with a gas fireplace, and two full baths provide comfortable sleeping quarters on the houses third story.

The top story of this house cannot be replicated today and is magical, indeed. It is flooded with light thanks to its 18-foot ceiling height and majestic 5 panel north facing skylight. There are two terraces here: a fabulous front terrace, perfect for dining al fresco, and a smaller one at the back which, with its south light, is great for gardening. The penthouse is a "house within a house" with wood burning fireplace, a full kitchen, powder room plus a loft bedroom with its own bath. This is the perfect home office, artists studio, guest quarters, or your own private respite away from the rest of the house.

Located between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues in the heart of the Upper West Side, this divine townhouse is just minutes from the beauty and activity of Central Park West and the great shops and restaurants on nearby Broadway.
