This 17 feet wide four story brownstone is presently configured as a two family home, comprising an owner's triplex and a separate garden apartment, and can be renovated into a single family residence. The Parlor floor has 11 foot ceilings, original wood floors and beautiful fireplaces. The library has built in shelving, and the three chandeliers (pewter, crystal and glass) are exquisite. The kitchen is at the rear of this floor, built on the extension. On the second floor the bedrooms have their original fireplaces, and the dressing rooms (there are two of them) between the bedrooms have their original marble sinks. The primary bathroom, while dated, has its original tile and claw tub.

The upper floor presently has two bedrooms and another large room at the front of the house, which served as the former owner's laboratory! A scientist and inventor, he was one of the country's foremost authorities on microwave oven technology, and in this house he invented products we take for granted today, like microwaveable oatmeal and microwaveable caramel popcorn. This large room has the flexibility of remaining a large living area, being remodeled into a large bedroom, or two smaller rooms. And of course there is the garden, a beautiful oasis, quiet and green.

This historic brownstone is right in the heart of the Upper West Side. It's a block away from Central Park, a few minutes' away from some of the neighborhood's best restaurants, shopping and nightspots, and close to lots of public transportation.
