Property description

Experience New York at its best in this graciously appointed 2-bedroom, 2-bath duplex on one of the prettiest blocks on the Upper West Side just steps from Central Park. This historic Georgian townhouse was commissioned by the Clarke family, who had already built the Dakota, a block away. The architect, Henry Hardenburgh, was inspired by the Georgian Townhouses in London. The apartment has two entrances: one through the main building and the other is a private entrance with French doors that leads into the living room.

Relax in front of the wood burning fireplace in the luxurious antique-filled living room that faces the street with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and dining area with a table that comfortably seats 6-8. Off the living room is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with a window. A marbled-floor foyer with a coat closet and a full bathroom with high quality Waterworks fixtures and crystal chandelier complete the upstairs floor. A stairway framed with antique Italian and French prints leads to the downstairs. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with Frette linens; a second bedroom has a queen size bed and single trundle bed; and between them there is a large bathroom with Waterworks fixtures and tiles and large shower (upstairs has a bath). A comfortable den decorated in French country style with another wood burning fireplace and 42' flat-screen TV complete the downstairs.

Central Park is 1/2 block away as is Columbus Avenue where you'll find great shopping, restaurants, theatres and nearby Lincoln Center. Museum of Natural History is 3 blocks away as is the New York Historical Center. Convenient to 2 subway lines (B,C and 1,2,3). This is a prime location in NYC.

We rent only to responsible guests who want the best of New York in a quiet, quality environment. Accordingly, we do ask our guests to provide a description of themselves and their party in terms of age, profession and backgrounds. No pets. No young children. No smoking. Minimum four nights.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We travel widely and know what it means to stay at an accommodation that goes beyond just providing the basics and makes for a memorable visit. The same type of elegant appointments in our city apartment also decorate our fully restored, 210-year-old second-home in Connecticut. NYC is our prime residence yet we make our apt. available for rentals while staying at our home in CT.

Why the Owner Chose Upper West Side:
Fantastic location on one of the most beautiful blocks on the Westside with historic landmark buildings. The apt. is a real gem with a unique townhouse layout inside.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment feels like a real home and is well appointed. The location is ideal: 1/2 block from Central Park, 3 blocks from the Museum of Natural History and a short walk to Lincoln Center. The area has numerous restaurants, boutiques and other stores, as well as movie theaters. Main subway and bus lines are two blocks away.
