This gorgeous 20’ wide, legal 2 family house had been owned & occupied by a single family for 50 years. There are now Landmarks Preservation Committee approved plans drawn and conceived by Rodolphe Parente Architecture & Design in Paris. Currently configured as a two-family home, the approved plans reimagine the house as a luxurious single family residence complete with an elevator, glass roof top extension opening to a two-sided roof garden, new staircase, wine cellar and additional outdoor spaces in the rear. The current ceiling heights range from 9’ to 12’7”. There are lovely original details throughout should the new owner choose to restore: inset mirrors, original fireplace mantles and insets, original millwork and fixtures. Currently set up with 6 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half baths, 2 full kitchens, a large rear yard and a separate terrace atop the extension. The reimagined single family has 5 bedrooms 5 full baths and 4 half baths. There are 7 existing fireplaces, all can be made to work. 30+’ deep rear yard with mature tree and plenty of space to plant and customize. Located on one of the most gorgeous park blocks on the Upper West Side, 74th Street between Central Park & Columbus is comprised entirely of townhouses. The brownstone and brick façade of the house is flanked by two blooming wisteria plants that send out gorgeous cascading purple flowers for the better part of the year. Moments from Central Park, all major subway lines, The Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center and the restaurants and shops of the Upper West Side. This house is a true gem!
