Unpretentious 19th-century Upper West Side townhouse seeks $6M

New, 4 comments

The Neo-Grec style home dates back to circa 1884

Given the fact that this narrow townhouse is sandwiched between two neighboring homes, one might not expect it to be quite as spacious as it actually is. Described as "modern classic," the home dates back to 1884 when, per its listing, it was designed by architect J.E. Terhune. While its facade continues to uphold its Neo-Grec style, the interiors have been given updates that combine its original detail with modern-day conveniences.

The floorplan illustrates four-bedrooms and four bathrooms spread across five floors. The single-family home, asking $5.995 million, has a spacious and modern dining room, a not-large but charming living room with garden views, and a huge office space on the third floor that can be converted into a fifth bedroom. Though there aren’t any photos of the kitchen, it’s described as being an "up-to-date eat-in" (no word on the appliances). Among the original details still intact are functioning wood-burning fireplaces, a wooden staircase, and shutters.
