326 West 77th provides the unique opportunity for a discerning buyer to purchase a 20' wide, custom-built home just steps from Riverside Park with the project to be completed on an accelerated time line. Designed by the innovative and highly regarded Turett Collaborative ( with approved plans from both the Department of Buildings and the Landmarks Preservation Commission, this property is ready to move directly into the construction phase of a state of the art home, saving prospective buyers valuable time and money. Interested parties would collaborate with the developer and the architectural team to customize features and finishes prior to commencing construction. The existing structure would be transformed into a nearly 8,000 square foot, 6-story, 6-bedroom, 8+ bathroom, luxurious single-family townhouse with an elevator and approximately 1,225sf of outdoor space. The Renaissance Revival front facade will be complemented with a new stoop and new clay tiled mansard roof in order to return the facade to its former and original glory. By contrast, the rear of the home will receive a completely new facade and addition rendered in custom handmade Danish Kolumba brick punctuated by deep set and delicately mullioned high performance German windows. The remarkably long depth of the building allows for a conventional centrally located stair and elevator core to be supplemented by architectural features which infuse the plan with richness and detail. For example, a rather classical parlor level living room featuring a built-in Ortal gas fueled fireplace, connects via a butler's pantry to a dramatic glass and steel walled dining room, also with its own built-in Ortal fireplace and custom millwork, which opens out over a 20'-0" high double height great room below with views of the garden beyond. Generous full width bedrooms face the front and rear with ample room for closets, luxuriously appointed ensuite bathrooms with Arne Jacobsen designed Vola fixtures, Ann Sacks savoy tiles, and Henrybuilt vanities. Other modern home conveniences such as cellar to roof elevator access, multiple laundry locations, as well as a light-filled playroom with wet bar at the top floor, continue to display the countless amenities of this state of the art home. The second floor alone is dedicated to the master suite that includes a large bedroom complete with a gentle curving bay window and fireplace, a sizable walk-in closet, a private study with wet bar, a separate bathroom clad in Nero Marquina marble, and a master bathroom clad in Calacatta Vision marble slabs. The cellar, which proposes to be excavated and extended below the rear garden, provides ample space for a recreation room with wet bar, a private home gym, and a climate controlled glass walled wine cellar. It features its own spa with Montauk Gray slate floors and waxed Venetian plaster walls complete with a custom sauna and steam shower. At the center of the home is the garden level kitchen handsomely appointed with Gaggenau appliances. The rich walnut faced cabinets by Henrybuilt are accentuated and livened by brushed brass hardware and both work in concert with the opulent Calacatta Vision marble countertop slabs and backsplash. Wide plank white oak floors tie the whole palette together both at the kitchen and throughout the house. Immediately adjacent to the kitchen is a great room with room for both informal dining and living which will truly be the heart of the home. When preparing a meal in the kitchen or informally lounging in front of the fireplace, it would be impossible to ignore the views from the double height glass wall towards the tiered garden beyond. The glass wall itself features a 10'-0" wide metal and glass pivoting door, which at the touch of a button allows the great room to be completely open to the garden, bringing the outdoors in and the indoors out. This artfully crafted residence is the perfect home for someone with a keen appreciation for design and a desire to live in a modern sanctuary amidst the vibrant city that surrounds.
