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.
The apartment is in a historic Georgian townhouse that was commissioned by the family who built the famous Dakota apartment building two blocks away. It is one of several townhouses constructed next to one another that were designed by Hardenburgh, an architect who was inspired by Georgian townhouses in London.
The apartment has its own private entrance, two steps above street level. It opens to an 11 ft high-ceiling living room, which has two large windows, a wood-burning fireplace, French antiques, a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf along the library wall, and a dining area with a large French table. Off the living room is fully-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances and a window. A marble-floor foyer with a coat closet and a full bathroom with high-quality fixtures and crystal chandelier complete the upstairs floor.

Though on the first-floor, the noise level from outside is at a minimum, and floor-to-ceiling drapes and door and window shades provide added privacy at night.

A stairway framed with antique Italian and French prints leads to the downstairs. At the foot of the stairs is a comfortable den decorated in French country style with another wood burning fireplace and 42' flat-screen TV. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; a second bedroom has a queen size bed. Between them is a large bathroom with Waterworks fixtures and tiles and a walk-in shower (upstairs has a bath). There is a walk-in closet in the 2nd bedroom available for use. Each bedroom has an extra wide window.
We provide high-quality bedding and towels.
Both floors have Wi-Fi and central air conditioning, which can be controlled separately.
Central Park is 1/2 block away, as is Columbus Avenue where you'll find great shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and Lincoln Center. The 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 to responsible guests who want the best of New York in a quiet, quality environment. We ask would-be guests to provide a description of themselves in terms of profession and background, along with why they are coming to the city. 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, New York, NY, USA:
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.
