128 Manhattan Avenue
Manhattan, New York, 10025 $3,849,000
The very best-priced townhouse on the entire Upper West Side is also the most majestic! An unbelievable price-drop puts this lovingly restored and meticulously maintained gem well within reach--under $3.85MM! No other Upper West Side house is move-in ready, single family, and represents such value. Best of all, this pre-war jewel is located on one of the prettiest blocks in the city: historic Manhattan Avenue.
Upon entering the parlor, you will be awed by the high ceilings, handsome working fireplace, and the abundant light that the oversized west-facing windows welcome. This floor has ample dining room space, an artfully restored library facing the second working fireplace, and plenty of room to congregate. There is a large pantry attached to the library, with a working dumbwaiter to easily transport fare from the downstairs kitchen.
Head down to the garden floor, a vast and varied space, perfect for cooking, dining, or gathering. There is a custom-designed kitchen equipped with a restored vintage oven with a grill and large griddle, set against a brick backdrop. A huge stainless-steel topped island provides ample workspace, surrounded by cabinets and abundant storage. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area with colorful leather banquettes. In warm weather, opt for the adjacent large flagstone patio for al fresco dining. There is also a small office and a laundry room en route to the patio.
Heading up to the third floor, you'll find the generous master suite. It has the gorgeous restored original shutters (also found on the parlor floor and the third floor). The master bath is beautifully tiled and has double sinks. It connects to an adjacent bedroom with east-facing windows overlooking the trees. There is also a modest terrace outside this second bedroom providing a perfect perch for enjoying the outdoors.
The top floor offers two more bedrooms and a large hallway bathroom. The bath has Waterworks fixtures, a corner Jacuzzi, marble basket-weave pattern floors, and a skylight. The home offers two-zone central air conditioning, beautiful custom millwork throughout, and painstakingly chosen hardware âof the periodâ throughout. Throughout the home, no detail has been overlooked.
Stately townhouses grace both sides of this tree-lined block, making it one of the most picturesque stretches in all New York City. Central Park, Morningside Park, two community gardens, Whole Foods, as well as bespoke restaurants, and terrific transportation are all there. Become the next steward of this magnificent, meticulously maintained townhouse-- a cut above even pricier homes. See it for yourself!
