Nghbd: West Village
Rare opportunity to own a 24-foot wide West Village townhouse with its own carriage house, horse walk and fully excavated lower level. Meticulously renovated by its current owners, this house boasts approximately 7,500 square feet of living space with an additional 670 feet of bluestone private courtyard. The house itself has six bedrooms, four full baths and four powder rooms. This red brick Italianate-style townhouse offers an exceptional level of privacy, light and flexibility. Approach the house up a beautifully rebuilt stoop through recessed Italianate double doors, framed by cable moldings, or enter through the garden level "horse walk" and continue to the rear courtyard accessing the main house's kitchen and a newly rebuilt two-story carriage house, equipped with a wet bar and a powder room, convertible to a full bath and an office or bedroom. The five-story main house is connected by a handcrafted elliptical staircase and a paneled elevator. The garden level includes a double height eat-in kitchen with Nanz hardware, end grain oak flooring, a large butler's pantry and formal dining room. The parlor floor enjoys tremendous southern exposure and privacy onto the courtyard as well as the carriage house. The top floor media room is bathed in glorious northern "painter's light" via a room-sized skylight. The lower level is completely excavated and transverses the property's entire 24x80 foot lot enjoying natural light from classic New York "vault lights". Currently used as a play space, laundry room, acclimatized wine room and multiple storage areas, this floor provides a convenient connection between both houses without stepping outside. Although the serene cobblestone street remains as it did when 336 West 12th Street was built in 1859, the 2013 renovation includes the latest technological conveniences including a state of the art security system, Crestron controlled Lutron lighting, automated shades and central AC/humidifier with 19 zones. Simply best in kind.

Sect: Upper West Side
Historic Riverside Park-Block Mansion with Elevator, Movie Theater, and Two-Level Roof Deck

Prolific Upper West Side architect Charles T. Mott held nothing back when designing this five-story gem for one of the Dow Jones founders, Edward Jones. The townhouse fa?ade embraces the glory of Renaissance Revival stylings by combining stone, Roman brick, arches, and columns. Even lion heads decorate the pressed-metal cornice. The interior doesn't shy away from grandeur either. Gut-renovated in 2004-2005, no detail was overlooked when transforming the townhouse back into a single-family mansion.

Beyond coats of fresh paint and no squeaks or leaks - this twenty-footer is currently in turn-key condition. Inside, you'll find six bedrooms, five full and three half-baths, elevator access on each floor, and outstanding entertaining spaces including a top-of-the-line kitchen and a private screening room. Expanding upon Mott's original vision, the current owners realized the townhouse was uniquely positioned to take in views of the Hudson River, so two additional levels of outdoor living space were built on the roof.

Located steps from Riverside Park and close to neighborhood classics like Zabars, Fairway, Citarella's and The Beacon Theater, 325 West 76th Street is the gold standard of townhouse living inside and out.


Garden Floor:
The garden floor renovation created an outstanding entertaining space. When entering under the front stoop, guests can leave the city at the door, and their shoes in the mudroom. The garden front is a game room, complete with full bar, and is appropriate for both informal gatherings or corporate entertaining. The family room is located at the rear of the floor and includes a wall of built-in shelving for all television or gaming system needs. Just off the family room is the butler's pantry. It has dedicated entrances from both the garden out back and the kitchen on the floor above. The floor also contains a powder room.

The townhouse garden is luxurious and serene. Highlights include: blue stone surface, a stone fountain, ample foliage, and a tall privacy fence on all sides.

Parlour Floor:
Entering this townhouse on the parlour floor is a breathtaking experience, as one must pass through the original massive wooden door that features wonderful heavy strap iron hardware. The sheer scale and dramatic flair is a preview of things to come. From restored moldings and banisters to the artfully reproduced wainscoting, the foyer and parlour front are a wonderful balance of traditional details and modern finishes. The townhouse renovation included the creation of an open layout that combines the formal living and dining rooms into a contemporary great room. The focal point of this space remains the extraordinary original fireplace with decorative paneling over the mantel.

A pocket door at the back of the dining room opens to reveal a true chef's kitchen. The parlour rear hosts a stunning space suitable for competitive cooking or family-style dinners. Boasting custom cabinets and shelving, a large island with a rack for cookware above, double ovens, gas stove, spacious SubZero, and banquette seating overlooking the garden, this room makes the townhouse a home. A lovely powder room is conveniently located at rear of floor adjacent to stairs that lead down to a butler's pantry and the family room.

Third Floor:
The third floor accommodates two bedrooms with custom closets and gracious, ensuite bathrooms. The front bedroom boasts a huge bow window as well as a fireplace with a lovely, original mantelpiece and new blue-toned marble hearth. The rear bedroom is bright and airy as it has large windows that provide excellent views of the garden below. The laundry room is located on this floor.
