Welcome to the Upper West Side's finest town home. Situated on the neighbourhoods' 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 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.
