About this property
Exceptional 26ft wide townhouse located in the coveted West End Collegiate Historic District of the Upper West Side.
Ideal for single-family mansion conversion.
This turn-of-the-century house was designed in the renaissance revival style by famed architect Charles P. H. Gilbert and was once home to James Mulford Townsend, member of the law firm Townsend and Button and chairman of the board of trustees of the New York Law School. This landmarked five-story 8,160 square-foot townhouse is currently configured with a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments.
The house also includes a storage room which was originally an additional studio apartment, a laundry room in the basement, a garden, and some residences with terraces. Primary fuel is from a natural gas-fired boiler in the basement, all residences are separately metered electricity.
The exquisite facade boasts a limestone base with a wrought-iron stoop, yellow Roman brick, a three-story angled bay, terra cotta molded window enframements, wooden double leaf glass-paneled entry doors, and an original areaway railing. The West End Collegiate Historic District of the Upper West Side offers spectacular views of the Hudson River, and superior access to the Hudson River Parkway. Convenient to world-class brand shopping, many of the best cultural institutions, such as Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Michelin star dining, and miles of waterfront and outdoor recreation along Riverside Park.
