FALL OCCUPANCY Welcome to 250 W 71 Street, a meticulously gut-renovated and never-lived-in townhouse nestled in the heart of the coveted Upper West Side. Located in the West End Collegiate Historic District, this beautiful Renaissance Revival home was designed in 1892 by one of the most prominent residential architects of the time, Thom & Wilson. This spectacular 5-bedroom, 20 wide home has now been completely updated for the 21st century with every state-of-the-art detail considered and to the highest quality level. Significant Upgrades Throughout Rarely is a home upgraded to this quality, in a city that is full of townhomes largely in poor structural shape and that have only been cosmetically refreshed since their construction at the turn of the century. In addition to luxury finishes, this home includes numerous meaningful upgrades that will ensure it endures for many more years. This home includes all new structural steel joists and beams installed on every floor with new structural steel columns running from the basement to the roof, as well as a new foundation, waterproofing, and fireproofing. Every aspect of the home has been brought up to current code, with new energy-efficient Marvin windows installed throughout, new roofing, and new plumbing, electrical, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems installed. An ELEVATOR accesses floors 1-5 and a new bulkhead provides easy access to the roof. Both CENTRAL AIR and radiant heat serve every floor. Finally, a security system is installed as well as an alarm panel with sensors throughout the home and multiple cameras outside. Outdoor space Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the multiple outdoor spaces. The 600 square-foot South facing garden gets abundant sunshine and is superbly landscaped and well-equipped with fragrant Spring plantings, irrigation, lighting and even room for a grill. A front garden hosts a beautiful birch tree and two large terraces on the fourth and fifth floors, both large enough for dining or lounging, look out onto the interior gardens of the block. Garden Floor Enter into a dramatic gallery and entertaining room with white oak floors, a glass staircase, and Italian crystal pendants by Il Pezzo Mancante. A spacious Eat-In-Kitchen, with room for a table for eight, faces the beautiful garden and is a chefs dream. Top-of-the-line professional-grade appliances by Thermador include two full-size refrigerators, wine cooler, a six-burner gas range and grill, microwave, and two dishwashers. Designer Italian cabinetry and radiant floor heating complete this comfortable home hearth. Sunshine and natural light pour through the oversized windows facing South and East. Parlor Floor The elegant Parlor floor features grand rooms including a 30 long living room with three large treetop-level windows facing onto charming 71st street. A dining room connects to a garden-facing home office with plumbing already in place for use as a catering kitchen, should an owner desire to host dinner parties in this gracious wing. Third Floor The spacious, South-facing, sunlit primary bedroom looks onto the peaceful garden and has a Juliet balcony with double doors. The sunny primary bathroom has oversized windows, looking out onto the magnolia tree and garden, and features luxe Italian finishes, radiant flooring, and an enormous closet ready for customization. A spacious second bedroom with three North-facing windows and an ensuite bathroom is both comfortable and private. Fourth Floor This bedroom floor features two more bedrooms, spacious and sunny, both ensuite and with ample closet space, and a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer, and a large south-facing terrace. Fifth Floor This special floor feels like its own wing of the house. A media/entertaining room with a wet bar and dishwasher opens out to a large South-facing terrace while a comfortable bedroom and full bathroom enjoy privacy and convenience. Lower Level The lower-level features almost an 8 ceiling height, and is fully finished and conditioned to host both storage, recreational, or gym space as well as a second laundry room with full-size appliances and a powder room. Neighborhood Located just moments away from Lincoln Center, the Museum of Natural History, Fairway, Citarella, and Zabar's, this townhouse offers easy access to world-class dining, shopping, and entertainment while maintaining the feeling of a peaceful enclave on a lovely block. Nestled between the coveted Central Park and Riverside Park, this is a truly exceptional townhouse in one of New York City's most desirable neighborhoods.
