STUNNING, 2BR. GEORGIAN TOWNHOUSE APT. 1/2 BLOCK CENTRAL PARK

Upper West Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Experience New York at its best in this graciously appointed 2-bedroom, 2-bath duplex on one of the prettiest blocks on the Upper West Side just steps from Central Park. This historic Georgian townhouse was commissioned by the Clarke family, who had already built the Dakota, a block away. The architect, Henry Hardenburgh, was inspired by the Georgian Townhouses in London. The apartment has two entrances: one through the main building and the other is a private entrance with French doors that leads into the living room.

Relax in front of the wood burning fireplace in the luxurious antique-filled living room that faces the street with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and dining area with a table that comfortably seats 6-8. Off the living room is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with a window. A marbled-floor foyer with a coat closet and a full bathroom with high quality Waterworks fixtures and crystal chandelier complete the upstairs floor. A stairway framed with antique Italian and French prints leads to the downstairs. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with Frette linens; a second bedroom has a queen size bed and single trundle bed; and between them there is a large bathroom with Waterworks fixtures and tiles and large shower (upstairs has a bath). A comfortable den decorated in French country style with another wood burning fireplace and 42' flat-screen TV complete the downstairs.

Central Park is 1/2 block away as is Columbus Avenue where you'll find great shopping, restaurants, theatres and nearby Lincoln Center. Museum of Natural History is 3 blocks away as is the New York Historical Center. Convenient to 2 subway lines (B,C and 1,2,3). This is a prime location in NYC.

We rent only to responsible guests who want the best of New York in a quiet, quality environment. Accordingly, we do ask our guests to provide a description of themselves and their party in terms of age, profession and backgrounds. No pets. No young children. No smoking. Minimum four nights.

We travel widely and know what it means to stay at an accommodation that goes beyond just providing the basics and makes for a memorable visit. The same type of elegant appointments in our city apartment also decorate our fully restored, 210-year-old second-home in Connecticut. NYC is our prime residence yet we make our apt. available for rentals while staying at our home in CT.

Sheila Sullivan purchased this apartment in 1987

Fantastic location on one of the most beautiful blocks on the Westside with historic landmark buildings. The apt. is a real gem with a unique townhouse layout inside.

The apartment feels like a real home and is well appointed. The location is ideal: 1/2 block from Central Park, 3 blocks from the Museum of Natural History and a short walk to Lincoln Center. The area has numerous restaurants, boutiques and other stores, as well as movie theaters. Main subway and bus lines are two blocks away.

Perfect New York Apartment

  • 5 of 5
I cannot agree more with the reviews below. Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage daughters stayed here for a 4 day sightseeing trip to New York. The apartment is in a great location, easy walking distance to the two 72nd Street Subway stations, giving easy access to all downtown areas with minimum changes; also walkable to the Lincoln Center. It has its own entrance on W74th Street. There is a good range of local shops and restaurants including the amazing Fairways (super)market. The posted pictures don't really do justice to the apartment itself which is huge and furnished and decorated in exquisite taste and air conditioned. Should you want to cook, the kitchen appliances and equipment are very comprehensive. Last, but by no means least, Sheila is a most welcoming, attentive and considerate host. I would not hesitate in recommending it.

Wonderful location, gorgeous apartment, wish in lived here!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in Bill and Sheila's apartment and were sad to leave. It is a great location to explore Manhattan, with a choice of 6 subway lines within close walking distance. The choice of restaurants nearby is incredible, and the local supermarkets are excellent, especially Fairway and Citarelli. Bill and Sheila have developed an excellent assortment of brochures, lists and guides to help get around, and the apartment is just perfect for 2 adults and one pampered princess. We already want to return, and we only left last week. So many places to see - not enough time to do it. Thanks for being such gracious hosts and letting us stay in your beautiful home Sheila and Bill.

PERFECT spot to stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week here with my Mom, Sister, and Daughter and we felt like real New Yorkers each day as we stepped out to see the city. The space was beautiful and spacious and so much better than a hotel room or two. We were worn out each day from sight seeing. Being able to come back and relax in such a special space was perfect. We were greeted by the owners with yummy cookies and lots of great information. I can't imagine staying anywhere else if our travels bring us back to NYC. THANKS for the great hospitality and for sharing your home with us. Everything we needed was available in such a relaxed and picturesque setting.

We spent a wonderful 5 days in Sheila and Bill's perfect townhouse. We are two Canadian couples who shared all the amenities this property has to offer (and they are many). Bill was there on our arrival and Sheila arrived a few minutes later. Both did everything we could ask for to see that our stay was seamless. The online photos only understate the elegance of this wonderful home. We also made use of the great list of excellent eateries Sheila and Bill have compiled for their guests. We were never disappointed in following their recommendations. If you want to stay in wonderful accommodations hosted by truly interesting people this is the place for you!

If you ever have the chance to stay here, seize the opportunity!!!!!

Rarely do dreams ever actually come true- fantasy always seems to be better than reality- but not in this case. For a milestone birthday, I wanted the opportunity to become a resident of the UWS- if only for the weekend. Sheila and Bill made this happen-with their beautiful home playing a starring role in this
dream! As others have said, the pictures are entirely accurate but do not actually give you the idea of how LARGE this home actually is. Absolutely everything inside was 5 star- and the library had all my favorite books and then some! Sheila and Bill are extremely responsive- my email was barely on its way before the answer was coming back to me! Now.....back to reality....but I'll always have the memory of this perfect birthday!!!!
