This bright, stately landmarked Queen Anne/ Romanesque Revival brownstone, on a quintessential quiet tree-lined townhouse block, is located in the Upper West Side-Central Park West Historic District. This sturdy rough gem was built in 1884 by renowned architect Charle Guilleaume.

It is the perfect raw canvass of 4 floors, 5 full bathrooms, plus a full height dry cellar, to realize and customize the house of one's dreams. The stairway positioned in the center allows for the rooms to be gracious in size, utilizing the full width of the property. The original hardwood floors remain throughout the house, and have been protected over the years with wall to wall carpeting, enabling ease in restoration.

The Garden Floor, which leads to a majestic private newly landscaped backyard garden, is currently partitioned but can be easily opened up. There are no supporting walls that need to be left intact, and this applies to all walls within the house.

The Parlor Floor, with towering ceilings and original detail, is filled with natural light throughout.

The Third and Fourth Floors are currently configured with two enormous bedrooms on each. The Third Floor has one full bathroom and the Fourth currently has two full bathrooms.

This house provides complete flexibility to configure the layout as desired.

The location is supreme, with Central Park, 1/2/3/B/C trains, all daily conveniences, including excellent shopping, many restaurants, and The Museum of Natural History within minutes of your doorstep.
