Commanding and dignified presence on the block, 143 West 95th Street boasts a fascinating history. Designed by James W. Cole and constructed in 1889, is a distinguished residence displaying a late Victorian version of the Gothic Revival style. This residence, however, was commissioned by the reverend Charles A. Vissani, who gained recognition as the first Commissary General of the Holy land for the United States. The original use of the building is reflected in the strong ecclesiastical overtones of the design whose fine detailing includes pointed and ogee arches, pinnacles, trefoils, and drip moldings. A gabled parapet and an elaborate stoop contribute to the grand scale and pleasing proportions of the building giving further distinction from the more typical Upper West Side rowhouse. All of these elements combine to produce a dignified Gothic-inspired design for a house associated with an important history in New York. Please inquire for a full setup!
