29 West 75th Street is an immaculate Brownstone built in 1892 by renowned architect George M. Walgrove. This brilliant piece of architecture is a Landmarked building. 29 West 75th street was constructed in a Renaissance Revival style with a Brownstone façade and metal cornice. The townhouse is perfectly located on a tree-lined block between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. The home offers a private grand staircase leading into this living masterpiece. Upon entering this beautiful piece of history, one immediately feels the perfect sense of classic Manhattan, with an underlying tone of a countryside French Chateaux.
29 West 75th Street contains approximately 9,800 square feet of interior space and includes a three-story 28’ extension. The townhouse offers six floors, eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a full basement for storage. The rooftop is completely finished and ready to soak up the sun, a beautiful patio on the third floor is perfect for a nice barbeque and entertainment, and the main floor has a brilliant area for a small home garden. The property also has the unique ability to be converted back from a single-family, into a rent producing two-family, which once brought in $11,000/month in rent as a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment. This rare apartment space offers its own separate entrance.
The townhouse embodies the beauty of a French Chateaux, stemming from the beautiful six wood burning fireplaces, the mantels were brought over from an 18th Century French Chateaux. This French theme can be seen throughout the home. Each room has either a custom made chandelier or custom made lighting fixture that ties in the essence of this European style. The floors consist of French parquet, chevron, and herringbone. The windows are polished French nickel hardware, olive door hinges and European door hardware. The ceilings are all hand crafted and French panel plaster moldings, ceiling tiles, custom crown moldings and ceiling medallions. The home has plaster walls that have been finished by a craftsman utilizing traditional European methods.
Other rooms that embody this stunning townhouse are a formal and informal living room, a dining room, a den, a library, a family room, a media room, an office, and an eat-in kitchen. The home also has an elevator that can be accessed from every floor, except the top floor, which houses one of the three useable washer/dryer units in the townhome.
The bathrooms are a work of art and are flooded with marble. Each individual bathroom has handmade mosaics that have been crafted to perfection and bring individual character.
The kitchen has marble as far as the eye can see, both on the countertops and backsplash. The library paneling perfectly accents the marble. This is truly a chef’s kitchen with an oversized stove, beautiful refrigerator and two dishwashers.
The owner spared no expense installing a Crestron system integrating audio/video, climate control, lighting and security functionality. The owner also installed noise reducing sound isolation system incorporated into framing and construction of walls, floors, and ceilings.
