Prime UWS Historic Brownstone
Vacant and ready to be renovated!
Located on Manhattan’s coveted Upper West Side – one in a row of nine historic brownstones built circa 1890 in the Romanesque Revival style by architect Joseph H. Taft. This is the first time this house has been on the market in more than 50 years. It is almost 20’ wide and presents endless possibilities.
Set on a landmarked tree-lined block this lovely historic home boasts 5 stories of gracious interiors plus a cellar. It is ready to be converted to a spectacular modern, custom single-family residence. Can also be a live-plus-income scenario, or a pure investment opportunity!
The house is currently configured as two separate apartments.
Enter the private garden apartment via an entrance under the stoop. The first floor of the garden duplex is comprised of the living and dining rooms and modern windowed kitchen. Walk out of your kitchen onto the private deck. From the deck there is a set of stairs which leads to your approximate 660 sf South facing garden. In addition, this floor has a full bathroom, hardwood floors and many closets. The garden duplex has 3 decorative fireplaces.
A straight set of stairs leads to the parlor floor of the garden duplex. This floor has two very large bedrooms with 10’+ celling height, laundry area and private bathroom.
The upper apartment has a private entrance from the main stoop of the house. The apartment consists of three floors. The first floor has 10’ ceilings, a lovely sitting room across from a large bedroom (both with decorative fireplaces), dressing room and private bath. The 2nd floor has beautifully proportioned rooms consisting of the living room with decorative fireplace, kitchen, dining room, full bath, and home office. The third floor has 2 more bedrooms and your 3rd full bathroom.
A bit of trivia: this home is located on Edgar Allan Poe Street (West 84th Street) where Poe wrote one of his most legendary works, “The Raven.”
