About 135 West 81st Street

GILDED AGE TOWNHOUSE
This single family townhouse is an over 6000 square foot, five-story, luxury Victorian home built in the City’s Gilded Age of the 1880’s.
It’s white distinctive façade with its delicate cornices and iron work stands out on the street near the top of the hill on a street of unique townhouses.
The home’s charm begins as you ascend your private front stoop to the impressive original double solid oak doors entryway to the stunning parlor floor. A private vestibule leads to the generous parlor living room, middle parlor, and rear parlor with 12-foot-high ceilings including three sets of original sliding pocket doors and three ornate decorative fireplaces. Rooms throughout are replete with original detail including original woodwork, nine fireplaces, all but one of which have original mantels, plus double and triple south and north facing windows with original shutters. The wide central mahogany staircase overlooking the parlor is complimented by a stained-glass window on the stair landing leading to the floors above.
The third floor accommodates a banquet-sized formal dining room open to the stairwell, as well as the adjacent kitchen, which is outfitted with extensive mahogany cabinetry and high-end appliances. There are convenient powder rooms on the parlor and third floors. A large, secluded bedroom sits at the back of the third floor. The fourth and fifth floors encompass four large bedrooms, connected by a high atrium like stairwell with balcony under a stained-glass skylight, as well as a study or extra bedroom, three full bathrooms, and a large laundry room. Through the study, residents can access a private, fenced-in terrace.
The garden floor contains two major rooms and a luxurious bathroom. The large rear extension connects to a stairway leading to the rear room on the parlor floor and above. An exterior porch connects to a patio garden landscaped with blue slate and mica shist rocks.
This rare, preserved, extra-wide home offers expansive space and unique privacy on a quintessential Upper West Side townhouse block, around the corner from the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, celebrated shopping and dining, and myriad schools and playgrounds. Residents will also enjoy access to all major transportation sources.
This home represents a unique opportunity for you and your architect to create an exquisite residence for you to enjoy for many years to come!
