“Prolific Upper West Side architect Charles T. Mott held nothing back when designing this five-story gem for one of the Dow Jone founders, Edward Jones,” says the brokerbabble for this $11.9 million mansion on West 76th Street, between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive. And indeed the Renaissance Revival-style home is a special one, spanning seven levels with a blend of period details and modern convenience.
The home was gut-renovated and its basics include six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half baths, an eat-in kitchen with a sun-lit breakfast nook, and a huge dining room. Details like pocket doors, wainscoting, original fireplaces with decorative mantels, wood floors throughout, and plenty of custom storage spaces.
It’s more high-end flourishes include a library with inlaid herringbone floors, coffered wood ceilings, wall-encompassing bookshelves and recessed lighting. There is a wet bar, den, sitting room, a sun room, sauna, game room, and even a home theater in the basement (!).
If you thought it couldn’t get even more lavish than this, think again: The massive abode includes plenty of outdoor space in the form of two terraces, a “luxurious and serene” garden with a stone fountain, and a rooftop terrace with an upper and lower level that give view to the Hudson River.
