This gorgeous, one-of-a kind, 20-foot wide, single-family house is in mint condition and located on one of the most sought after blocks of the Upper West Side. It is one of a row of five houses designed by Charles Israels for the real estate developer Bernard Levy in the late nineteenth century and illustrates the early residential evolution of the West End/Riverside district, which became one of New York's most desirable neighborhoods. Today 310 West 81st has a two-story south-facing all-glass curtain wall through which the sun pours in across two floors. It also has an integrated multi-room sound system, an updated central air system, and a new alarm system while maintaining many of the house's original details including the original staircase on the parlor floor, which is in mint condition. There are rights to build an additional floor on the roof. The house is located between both Central and Riverside Parks and is in close proximity to Zabar's, Fairway, the Beacon Theater, Lincoln Center and transportation.
The garden floor has its own entrance and features a bedroom or dining room, a spacious pantry area, a half-bath, numerous closets and a gorgeous 19' by 18' kitchen that is flooded with sunlight and has top of the line appliances. It also features a breathtaking 19' by 14' dining area featuring 21' windows which look out onto the beautiful sun-drenched south-facing garden. There are two staircases which lead upstairs to the grand parlor floor.
The parlor floor is a magnificent space which features 11'6 " ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, beautiful views of the garden, and the original 19th century staircase, in mint condition. It can be entered from the gracious front stoop or from either of the two stairways from the garden floor.
The third floor is devoted to the expansive master bedroom and study. There are two fireplaces, two magnificent bathrooms and spacious closets. There is also a large terrace off the study with rights to be built out.
The fourth floor currently has four bedrooms (one of which is configured as a fitness room), two full bathrooms and excellent storage. Ceilings are 10' high.
The basement is clean and newly-renovated with a large recreation room, a boiler that was replaced last year, a laundry area, mechanicals and enormous storage spaces.
