Turn of the Century Gem You’ll find drama and history at 263 West 90th Street in the Riverside-West End Historic District on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Distinctively clad in limestone and brick, the house measures 18’x70’ on an 18’x100.67’ lot. The 5-story building with original stoop, full basement and private garden is a legal 5-family, but may be converted to a single-family home or remain an income-producing property; a residential loan is possible. Designed by architect Andrew Welch and constructed in 1896, this remarkable residence approximates 5,800 square feet , including the basement which has 8’ceilings and can be finished. The home comprises an owner’s duplex on the ground and parlor floors, a second full floor one bedroom (delivered vacant), a third full floor renovated two-bedroom with private terrace (rented at $4,100 through June 2020), and a top floor one bedroom (delivered vacant) and roof deck. Turn of the century architectural details abound, including high ceilings (11.5’ on the parlor floor and 10’ on floors two and three), period hardwood floors of red mahogany and quartered oak, elaborate ceiling plasterwork, original wood shutters, 5 fireplaces (originally gas) with 4 original mantles, 4 skylights and bay windows. A new boiler, laundry facilities, and oversized temperature-controlled wine room are located in the basement. Situated on a particularly beautiful tree-lined street amid a row of 6 other like houses, 263 West 90th Street is close to excellent neighborhood restaurants, shopping and major transportation and offers historic charm, abundant storage and excellent light throughout.
