This historic, landmarked, 20' wide, bay-front, limestone townhouse, was designed by the prominent New York architect, Alonzo B. Kight, as a single-family home. It is currently configured as four separate units consisting of more than 5,100 square feet of interior space and a semi-finished 1,300 square foot basement.

The garden level consists of a three-bedroom, two-bath apartment with an open, ivy-walled, pavered garden, providing great privacy, which is accessible from both the ground-floor unit and the duplex. It is a peaceful oasis - a special haven away from the bustle of the city.

The loft-like owner's duplex apartment, which occupies the second and third floors, boasts soaring ceilings, parquet floors, a decked terrace, three bedrooms, two and a-half baths, and four wood-burning fireplaces. This special space is great for entertaining on a large scale or for intimate gatherings. The parlor floor has been the venue for fundraisers, jam sessions, and grand parties; Duke Ellington and his orchestra played here.

The top floor includes two one-bedroom apartments. The south-facing, front apartment has a working fireplace, and the north-facing apartment enjoys a private decked terrace.

This architectural jewel is ideally situated in the highly coveted, family-friendly neighborhood of the Upper West Side - close to some of the city's best private schools (Dwight and Trevor Day) and public schools (PS 9 and PS 166) and is easily accessible to the #1,2,3, B, and C train lines.

Once featured in House Beautiful magazine, this unique property can be reverted back to a single-family home or left in its current, income-producing configuration, and is eligible for a significant tax deduction through the Trust for Architectural Easements.

Showing by appointment only.
