My Notes

Welcome to the Upper West Side's finest town home. Situated on the neighborhood's most desirable block, just steps from Central Park, 41 West 70th Street is the fifth in a series of eight beautiful single family homes. Originally designed by the architect Gilbert A. Schellinger in the Renaissance Revival style in 1891, the interior was completely demolished and and re-built into this modern classic. This is not a spec house, but was instead renovated by the current owners who spared no expense in creating a townhouse masterpiece. This private residence was built by an architect with a focus on maintaining light and flow on each floor. It has been meticulously constructed, with similar materials to those chosen by Olmstead & Vaux in their construction of Central Park: blue stone, pigmented stucco, almond tinted mortar, steel casement windows, limestone, clinker & roman brick, copper flashing. The original 120 year old structural beams were planed and woven back into the architecture. The home contains over 8,000 square feet of interior space, an elevator, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two full floors of entertaining space, a north and south windowed cellar that creates light and ventilation and is ideal for accommodating a media/play room and gym, a loggia adjacent to the grand living room that looks down upon a beautifully landscaped garden, and a large terrace off the fourth floor that looks out on the skyline that runs along Central Park West. In addition the property has extremely low taxes of $31,075. Experience the best of town house living in this magnificent single family home one half block away from Central Park. Finishes Include: - 20 feet wide, 8000 square feet, five levels plus full height basement - Fully restored facade with new stoop and adjacent planter to Landmark 1891 specifications - Seven huge 7' x 7' steel casement fixed and operable windows - Four wood-burning fireplaces - Pre-wired for AV customization - All new windows with insulated glass - Custom rift & quarter sawn white oak flooring - Restored entryway with original ironwork front doors - Custom steel staircase with elegant blackened iron winding railing from cellar to top floor - Parlor floor loggia with custom wrought iron hand hewn railings - Fourth floor terrace with irrigation system - Landscaped garden with irrigation, drainage, specimen Japanese maple, 50' Chinese elm tree, high intensity Altima BBQ - Landscaped front yard planter and adjacent trees with irrigation system - Radiant heat throughout cellar, entire kitchen level, all bathrooms as well as both laundries - New custom elevator serving five floors - Gracious 6 bedrooms, - Duravit & Dornbracht fixtures and fittings throughout. - High end appliances (42" SubZero refrigerator, 6 burner Wolf stove, Bosch dishwasher, etc) - Two custom glass 4' x 8' roof skylights - Two laundry rooms located on the 4th floor and cellar - Cellar excavated to provide full height ceilings and floors include radiant heat and full drainage system under slab in addition to sump pump. - Cast iron Kohler tubs - All brick party walls were 100% re-pointed. - Museum style wall construction designed for hanging art throughout - Sound attenuation in walls and between floors - Fully sprinklered - Full security system - Lutron lighting  More Less
