About this property
18 West 95th Street is a renovated, park block townhouse with a 3-level owner unit plus 3 studio apartments. The owner unit, previously designed by James Polshek in 1965, has been meticulously renovated with European flair by Resolution: 4 Architecture (res4), a 21st Century design firm known for its custom modern homes.
Design elements, from exposed brick to double paneled Steelcase windows and doors to customized, 7” white oak flooring, blend together to make this owner unit truly unique. All the woodwork in the kitchen cabinetry, shelving, closets, and bedroom built-ins are customized from Henrybuilt and are American black oak.
The new owner of 18 West 95th Street can live in this owner unit and then enjoy the benefits of the 3 studio units with either extra income as rental units, additional living space for family and friends or private areas for those who continue to work from home.
This floor is accessed through a gated under-stoop entrance. Upon entrance there is ample and thoughtful closet space for all the belongings you need from a busy day in New York City. There is a front room that can function as an office or an intimate space for your first cup of coffee. Beyond this front room is the heart and soul of this owner unit: an open plan kitchen complete with the top of the line, high end appliances from a Wolf Stove and cooketop to a double Sub-Zero refrigerator a Miele dishwasher plus two side by side Sub-Zero wine refrigerators. Italian Carrera marble waterfall countertops encircle more custom cabinetry making this kitchen a chef’s delight. This expansive and thoroughly modern kitchen is situated above a sunken living room with wood burning fireplace. The formal dining room is located in the townhouse’s extension and receives great light from windows that look out onto the private garden. There is also a powder room on this floor.
This Parlor Floor has a large room at the front that currently functions as office but could also be used as an additional bedroom or guest room or media room. There is an open, formal living area with a terrace that looks out over the garden. There are two full baths on this floor plus additional storage closets that line the west facing wall. With a ceiling height of over 10’ feet, this floor has a feeling of spaciousness and graciousness.
Stairs from the Parlor Floor lead down to a landing where there is a bedroom that is located between the Garden and Parlor floor. Another identical bedroom is located on a landing between the Parlor and 3rd Floor. Both of these bedrooms have custom built shelving and built-in bed frames, and their locations provide both a sense of privacy and comfort.
