152 West 88th Street
This distinctive, ideally-located turn-of-the-century 18 foot wide Upper Westside Brownstone is a rare gem that awaits your special touch! Set on a beautiful tree-lined street, this single-family home offers plenty of room with 4 stories of living space and an unfinished basement. Incredible old-world character comes to life thanks to such well-maintained details as 7 period gas fireplaces (non-working) & mantels, original moldings, decorative glass windows, pocket doors, intricately-designed oak floors, ornamental plasterwork on walls & ceilings, a built-in bookcase, dumbwaiter shaft, original shutters, a tin ceiling, south facing terrace on the third floor plus so much more you must see for yourself! And what a pedigree: it is the former site of The Music House, with the likes of the maestro, Leonard Bernstein, once holding recitals at the school. Also wonderful is the airiness afforded by soaring ceilings, and the tranquility of the outdoors with your own private yard. Currently configured as a 2-family residence with a lower owner's duplex & an upstairs tenant duplex, the original single-family flow has been retained which makes conversion back easy.
