Sobre 25 West 88th Street

The owners of this 8,000 sq ft single family home have created one of the finest contemporary townhomes on the Upper West Side. This home has received national designation as a Platinum Certified LEED Home and Passive Energy Certification, possibly the first in Manhattan to be so awarded. Built with six floors and a finished cellar, the home offers six bedrooms plus several activity rooms designed for yoga, meditation, exercise and crafts. The design and construction decisions were a collaboration between the extremely knowledgeable owners, Baxt/Ingui Architects, arguably the best NYC LEED and Passive home builders, and Robert Taffera Inc., renowned and discerning builders of brownstone homes. The result at 25 West 88th Street is a masterpiece of design, detail, energy savings, quality of life and environment which the new owners will benefit from for years to come.
