305 West 78th St - Upper West Side, New York

 

Behind one of the Upper West Side's most famous and beloved facades, an exceptional private residence awaits. Designed by Frederick B. White and completed in 1886, 305 West 78th Street is a Flemish Renaissance masterpiece that harmoniously integrates with its seven contiguous sister houses on the block, most of which are once again single family homes. Under the thoughtful supervision of Baxt/Ingui Architects, the owners of this historic property have painstakingly restored the home's original character, with careful attention to the unobtrusive integration of 21st century comforts and conveniences.

This dignified house has 12 rooms, 4-5 bedrooms on 5 floors and over 800 square feet of outdoor space on 3 levels. On the parlor floor, ceiling heights exceeding 11 feet lend a quiet sense of grandeur, warmed by artfully restored millwork, an original wood-burning fireplace, and extraordinary natural light. The full-floor master suite, appointed with a sumptuous dressing room and a spa-inspired six-fixture bath, also features a private terrace and a wood-burning fireplace. (The home has four additional fireplaces that can be restored.)

The chef's kitchen, fitted with professional-grade appliances and abundant storage, and breakfast room are at the heart of the home. The adjacent media room, which opens to the sunny garden and covered loggia, offers a comfortable year-round gathering space for living, dining, and relaxing. The home also offers 2-3 additional bedrooms, private staff quarters, a laundry room, a gym/office with an adjoining terrace, and a butler's pantry on the parlor floor.

Situated in the West End-Collegiate Historic district, steps from Riverside Park, 305 West 78th Street is conveniently located near public transportation and some of the finest shopping, dining, educational and cultural institutions the city has to offer.
