Upper West Side Townhouse New York, USA



An elaborately detailed brick-above-granite townhouse at 24 West 71st Street, a historic Upper West Side block, is about to enter the market at $29 million. When the five-story residence, designed in 1888 by Hugh Lamb and Charles Alonzo Rich and fully restored two decades ago, last sold in 1996 for $4.275 million it set a neighborhood record.

After being restored to a level of museum polish that goes well beyond a house-tour gloss (according to The New York Times) and setting the record in 1996 for the highest price on the Upper West Side, this one-of-a-kind, dazzling mansion is back on the market. Immaculately maintained, the six-bedroom, six and a half-bath townhouse has retained the gorgeous original details that infuse every corner, while augmenting them with opulence by Jonathan Rosen Interiors.

From the moment you ascend the stoop and see the granite and terra-cotta facade, you can tell that this is a special house. Architects Hugh Lamb and Charles Alonzo Rich faced the garden and parlour floors in peachy-pinky rough-cut carved granite, and the top three floors in pale golden iron spot brick and terra cotta.

Elaborate wrought iron ornamentation crowns the front door. In the terra cotta surrounds of the third floor windows, keystones shaped like armored knights can be seen. The splayed lintels of the fourth floor windows are complemented by scallop shells at either end of the sills. And the fifth floor continues the theme, with huge terra cotta shells filling the arches of the windows; smaller scallop shells flank the fifth floor facade and adorn the terra cotta cornice.

Winged cherubs hold up the iron spot brick pillars that frame the cornice. In the entry way, you can see the beginning of the original woodwork that defines so much of this home. In fact, 95% of the woodwork in this building is original. A 400-pound original door, hidden in the wall at first glance, can be closed behind the wood and glass front door, or left flush against the wall for extra light. And that s just the beginning. Parlour Floor: This parlour floor is like none other, with unsurpassed custom millwork everywhere. It s spacious enough to host an event for over two hundred people. When you look up, you ll see extra-wide mahogany crown molding (all of which was cut from a single tree) and twelve-foot-eight coffered mahogany.
