Description
Facing directly onto Central Park, this 22+foot wide, 6-story elevator townhouse has been impeccably renovated to exude much of its original magnificence. The home's approximately 10,745 square feet of total living space perfectly combines the elegant Queen Anne-style original detail with modern luxury. Contemporary enhancements include an oversized chef's kitchen, a 60-foot swimming pool, 4 passenger elevator, multi-level home theatre, total home camera security system, and a glass solarium which is the centerpiece of this impressive home, flooding the core of every floor with natural sunlight. Originally built in 1887 as one of a row of townhomes spanning the entire block along Central Park West between 84th and 85th Streets, 247 was chosen by the developer, William Noble, to be his personal residence. Lower Level: A grand archway leads to an approximately 60-foot long swimming pool with automated cover, fully-equipped home gym with televisions and mechanical room. This floor is uniquely built to the full depth of the lot. Garden Floor: The delightfully planted garden receives natural sunlight all day. Just off the garden is a bright sitting room, which continues into the dining room, and open kitchen that make this level a truly exceptional living and entertaining space. The chef's kitchen is lined with professional-grade appliances, gracious marble countered prep spaces, and an abundance of custom wood cabinetry. This floor also features a beautifully detailed home office, powder room, fireplace and service entrance with security system. Parlor Floor: Enter at the top of the limestone stoop into a grand parlor with ceiling heights ranging from over 12 feet soaring up to 62 feet. The ceiling is dramatically open to the 15-foot wide rooftop solarium, which allows natural light to fill every corner of the front and rear parlors. The incomparable grandeur of this floor makes it perfect for impressive entertaining. A home office and powder room complete this level. Third Floor: This level is a full floor master suite boasting a front-facing master bedroom with gracious bay windows overlooking Central Park. An adjacent dressing room and tremendous 35' long hallway of walk-in closets provide an abundance of storage space. The master bath features a large steam shower, soaking tub, radiant heat floors and large glass doors which open onto a private balcony. Fourth Floor: The fourth floor includes a bedroom with Central Park views and a full en-suite bath as well as a multi-level home theatre with reclining massage seats, projection screen, wet bar, and a full bathroom. The laundry room has two washers and two dryers. Fifth Floor: These two master bedroom suites, each with private bath, benefit from the large windows providing abundant natural light. Sixth Floor: The bedroom with en-suite bath offers full height windows with townhouse clearing views. The arched glass solarium opens to a remarkable roof deck with unobstructed Central Park views. The History of an Exceptional Home 247 Central Park West is a rare example of a surviving single-family residence on one of Manhattan's most prestigious avenues. This picturesque gabled home is one of three remaining townhouses that were originally built as part of a block-long row to rival mansion-lined Fifth Avenue. William Noble, one of the particularly bright stars of New York City real estate, purchased the property opposite Central Park in 1887. Edward L. Angell, a prolific New York City architect of the late nineteenth century, designed the houses for Noble. At the time the houses were built, The Real Estate Record and Builder's Guide lauded them as distinctly first-class residences. Among the nine exceptional houses, William Noble chose No. 247 as his own home. Noble lived in the house for five years and hosted many grand celebrations, culminating with his niece's wedding in 1892. Co-Exclusive.  MoreLess
