24 West 71st Street
Townhouse · Lincoln Center · $17,650,000
An elaborately detailed brick-above-granite townhouse at 24 West 71st Street, a historic Upper West Side block. Original antique details ranging from the buttermilk mosaic floors to the curved wooden walls, doors, and pocket doors, to coffered ceilings. Mahogany dining room with 24 karat ceilings and unique ceiling moldings. Six large bedrooms, each with their own large marble bathroom. Roof terrace and garden level garden . Huge laundry facility in the "basement" combined with a pool table room. Basement has become a legal floor. The 7,134-square-foot townhouse, in a historic district, was completed in 1892 from plans filed in 1888 by the architects Hugh Lamb and Charles Alonzo Rich. A century later, it received a museum-grade restoration that cost about $1 million and re-established it as a grand single-family residence, after several decades as a 10-unit apartment building.
Facade: Pink Granite and Limestone with considerable details on the facade reminding one of the Mediterranean. There is nothing that looks like this house on the Upper West Side.
