UWS 20' Wide Romanesque Revival Townhouse A classic beauty set in the Riverside-West End Historic District, this stunning 20' wide townhouse combines the best of old world elegance with modern design and conveniences. Fully renovated when the current owners bought it, the house features lofty, open and airy spaces featuring soaring ceilings, multiple skylights, and grand scale rooms. There are 5 bedrooms, two large windowed offices, four full bathrooms and three powder rooms, a large rear garden with mature trees, top-level terrace, HVAC, central vacuum system, heated floors in the kitchen and bathrooms; two laundry rooms, a gym, and more storage than one could imagine in NYC. 4965 sq ft of interior space plus 1185 sq ft in the basement and more than 950 sq ft of garden. Designed by architect Clarence True and built in 1890 with sister buildings flanking the house on either side, 307 West 89th street is move-in ready. The house is well laid-out over 6 floors as follows: Cellar Fully finished with ceiling heights of 88', this level includes a spacious gym; one of two laundry rooms; multiple storage spaces including a cedar closet and plenty of clean, dry storage. Garden Level One of two options for entrance: for every day ease, step down into the front garden and through the wrought-iron gate. Enter into the vestibule and past one of the large windowed office spaces to an enormous kitchen/living space with the three sets of french doors leading to the terraced garden. The kitchen is large and well-equipped with two Miele dishwashers, a 5-burner gas Thermador cooktop with a vented hood, Sub Zero refrigerator and abundant cupboards, built-ins and storage throughout. The adjacent living area has plenty of space for relaxing with groups big and small. The three large french doors feature custom iron work and open wide to create a seamless indoor/outdoor feel allowing fluid movement between kitchen and the outdoor gas grill, perfect for al fresco cooking and dining. The large garden is 19 x36 and features a flagstone terrace, a grassy area and mature River Birch trees which are illuminated at night. A simple and serene space that can be enjoyed as it is or further planted to create a lush oasis of flowers and shrubbery. There is a powder room on this floor and access to the large finished basement below. Parlor Floor For more formal living, enter the house by ascending the large front stairway where one first enters a bright vestibule then arrives into the stunning 18.5' x 31' parlour with 11-foot ceilings. This enormous space is chic and loft-like with light pouring in through the 3 sets of floor-to-ceiling French doors that open over the garden below. The room comfortably combines multiple seating areas and a formal dining area accommodating a generously-sized dining table with a custom-designed ceiling light fixture. There is a dumbwaiter adjacent to the table to easily transport food from the kitchen below. A chic and airy 30' long wall of shelves includes a library ladder to reach the upper shelves. This floor also features a large office/study with three south-facing windows over the street as well as a powder room and a nook under the stairs perfect for a piano. Second Floor Ascend the open staircase to the second floor where one finds three bedrooms with 9.6-foot ceilings. There is one cozy bedroom adjacent to a larger bedroom - both with sunny south-facing windows - and a bathroom accessible to both rooms. Down the hall is a palatial bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a wall of window facing the garden.There are two built-in desks and a wall of shelves and storage to ensure tidy and organized spaces. There is also a large laundry room on this floor with a side-by-side washer/dryer and another wall of storage and shelving providing room for cleaning supplies and linens. Third Floor Above this on the third floor is the dramatic primary bedroom with soaring 20-foot high cathedral ceilings and a 6 x6 sky light allowing for glorious light and sunshine. There is a wall of closets, and a large ensuite bathroom that features heated floors, double sinks, a large soaking bathtub, a separate steam shower, a laundry chute, and a large walk-in closet Down the hall is another enormous bedroom with three windows overlooking the garden to the north, an ensuite bathroom, and ample closet space. Fourth Floor The top floor is a sun flooded space with two porthole windows through which light pours down to all levels, space for a desk or cozy seating area and two outdoor spaces: a stone 'garden' and a lovely north-facing 18 x 21-foot terrace with space for reading, relaxing, drinks or dining. There is a kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave and storage as well as a powder room. 307 is one of a group of five brownstone-fronted row houses at Nos. 301 to 309, and a sixth at No. 319. Many of the houses have been altered but it is apparent that all originally had hexagonal slate tile roofs, similar facade materials, and stoops leading to parlor-story entrances. 307 is distinguished by a rounded projecting bay extending to the present day third story, a large triangular gable with a carved ornamental shield in the pediment, and carved ornament including a simulated balcony above the second- and third-story windows. It is faced in quarried ashlar at the basement and at the second story. A carved square-headed door surround remains at the parlor story. A wonderful piece of Upper Westside history, this stunning house awaits its next owner.
