As seen in The NY Times! Welcome to 313 West 102nd Street, the epitome of townhouse living in one of the most exquisite blocks on the Upper West Side, just a stone’s throw away from the Hudson River and steeped in rich architectural history.
This 20-foot wide, approx. 5,100 sq. ft., five-story townhome features a renovated rock-faced limestone facade with elegant new windows. It is part of a row of four upscale rowhouses commissioned in 1892 by developer Charles G. Judson on the north side of West 102nd Street, nestled between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue. These townhomes were designed by architect Clarence F. True, renowned for his French Gothic and Flemish Renaissance influences. Clarence F. True’s deep appreciation for French Gothic architecture is reflected in the beautiful original details of the townhouse, such as its single-doored entrance featuring a scallop shell tympanum and intricate foliate carvings, as well as the striking French gargoyle crowning the fourth floor.
GARDEN LEVEL: Large, impressive windows open from the elegant dining room into a picturesque 45-foot-long backyard. The dining room easily accommodates a table of twelve and seamlessly connects to the outdoors, allowing for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The room features a working wood-burning fireplace and original wood herringbone floors. At the front of the house, nestled within a beautiful rock-faced limestone arch, is the expansive kitchen, which easily fits a large breakfast nook and an oversized island. Two large windows overlook the charming street and provide a view of the neighboring brownstones.
PARLOR LEVEL: Spectacular oversized French casement windows make a statement by opening onto a beautiful and tranquil terrace which overlooks the breathtaking landscaped backyard. Similar to the garden level, the parlor level of the house is entirely open, offering impressive volumes with 11-foot-two high ceilings and a multitude of windows. The living room features a beautiful working wood-burning fireplace, and original wood floors can be found throughout.
THIRD FLOOR: The third floor of the house showcases two generously sized bedrooms, each equipped with en suite bathrooms and graced by lofty 10-foot-high ceilings. The primary bedroom, which has its own en suite walk-in closet and spacious bathroom, offers delightful garden views. On the same floor, the second bedroom is flooded with sunlight, thanks to its three oversized windows, and is spacious enough to accommodate a dedicated sitting area with two sofas encircling a coffee table, positioned adjacent to the queen-sized bed.
FOURTH FLOOR: The fourth floor of this townhome unveils a truly spectacular third bedroom, graced by cathedral ceilings soaring to heights exceeding 20 feet. This beautifully adorned space, complete with an en suite bathroom, is bathed in abundant natural light and features no less than four expansive windows. Additionally, this floor hosts a fourth bedroom adorned with a beautiful skylight and 14-foot-3 cathedral ceilings, complemented by its own en suite bathroom and an elegantly spacious home office area.
LOWER LEVEL: The fully finished basement level of the home impresses with its generous 6-foot-9 high ceilings and abundant storage solutions. Several rooms are dedicated to laundry, a well-appointed pantry, and ample storage spaces. The rear section, designed for storage, features large shelves and built-in closets.
Nestled in one of the Upper West Side’s most picturesque corners, this exquisite townhouse is conveniently positioned one block from the 103rd St. local 1 train, and just a few minutes from the 96th St. express 2 & 3 lines. The neighborhood is replete with an array of fantastic dining and shopping options.
