One of the finest single family townhouses offered in the marketplace at 45 West 70th Street.

This home, built originally in 1891 by architect Gilbert Schellenger, is one of a handful of homes on the block designed in the Neo-Renaissance and New-Romanesque style and is truly a masterpiece. The house has been impeccably renovated from cellar to sky, and is replete with modern amenities and the finest finishes and specifications. It even offers a 33-foot long, six-foot deep lap pool with jacuzzi in the amenities level. In no other house on the Upper West Side is there such a grand and free-flowing amount of square footage dedicated to entertaining and living, while simultaneously housing ample private spaces for sleeping and enjoyment.

The home now measures over 8,500 interior square feet and was built with a Lowered basement floor, resulting in significantly higher ceiling heights than a normal brownstone throughout.

CELLAR

One floor sub-grade houses some of the finest private amenities in a townhome ever offered. There is a heated, freshwater and ozone pool that is 33 feet long and six feet deep. It has a jacuzzi in place and high ceilings, lending itself to the pools offered in the largest new condominium buildings. There is also space on this floor for a private gym, and a full bedroom and bathroom which can be used for guests and/or staff.

GARDEN LEVEL

On the ground floor of the home is an entry den and powder room, leading to a grand, bright kitchen with carrera marble countertops, chef's appliances (including an eight-burner range), an enormous amount of counter space and casual dining space. There is a large pantry. A beautiful window of glass extends out to a wonderful and private garden area, with a full outdoor kitchen and custom planters.

PARLOR LEVEL

Up the stoop, one enters into the parlor level, one of the grandest entries on the Upper West Side, with double-height coffered ceilings open to the second floor. There is a grand mahogany staircase that extends all the way up the eastern side of the house. The home has a deep extension, used smartly throughout the building for extra space. On the parlor level is grand entertaining and dining space, a cozy bar in the extension, and multiple fireplaces.

SECOND FLOOR

This floor is open to below, and houses an office space in the extension and more casual living in the southern end of the floor. The home on this floor also features a home theater area, which can be fully blacked out be electric shades and houses a projector. A powder room with custom tilework and marble is also here.

PRIMARY FLOOR

The primary suite occupies the third floor. On the northern end of the home is the sumptuous primary bedroom, with a private terrace on the top of the extension. The extraordinary primary bath is outfitted in a textured imported marble, truly stunning and one-of-a-kind. There is a separate water closet with bidet, deep soaking tub, large steam shower, and double vanity. The southern portion of this floor houses another bedroom and full bathroom, either usable as another guest suite or a part of the primary floor.

FOURTH FLOOR

On the fourth level are two grand, full-width en-suite guest rooms. Each has ample closet space and soaring ceiling heights, with one housing a skylight. The bathrooms each have heated floors and custom tilework.

ROOF

The roof has been recently replaced and is prepared for a new owner to create a roof deck if they like, although the current owners did not build one. The elevator reaches the top level and extends all the way to the cellar.

SPECIFICATIONS

The home has eleven zones of central air conditioning, radiant heating with a forced-air backup, smart home wiring, three air exchanges, and a front patio snow-melting system. All finishes are of the highest specifications and can be provided to potential buyers.

Can be shown flexibly and on short notice.
