Upper West Side Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Landmarked Townhouse Gem On Best Upper West Side Block! 7 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY

THIS IS A 7 NIGHT MINIMUM RENTAL. Beautifully restored but with all the modern comforts, this historic home was built along with 5 others in a row in 1886 by noted Spanish architect, Rafael Guastavino and is featured in several self guided NYC architectural walking publications. Located on a quiet, friendly, tree-lined street near the Museum of Natural History - 'Time Out Magazine's 'Best 50 Blocks in NYC' publication ranked our block #10! The home has just undergone a complete historical restoration of the front facade, bringing the home back to its original glory! Our 4 story, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home is the perfect respite from a busy day of sightseeing! Walk up the ornate stoop (great for sitting on to meet the neighbors or just watch the world go by) to the parlour level entrance and enter a wide open space that includes a light-flooded living and dining room that continues back through a large open pantry and breakfast bar to a large, fully stocked gourmet kitchen that overlooks the back gardens. Through the french doors, an ornate iron stairway takes you to the garden where you can dine alfresco on pleasant evenings. A teak dining table and chairs plus a covered living/lounge area provide ample seating for a festive BBQ (gas and charcoal). Back in through french doors at garden level is a home theater/den with a 52' flat screen television, reclining theater seats, a queen air mattress with bedding and an elliptical machine. There is also a kitchenette with sink, wine cooler and 2 drawer under-counter refrigerator and cabinets with BBQ supplies. A small half bath in the hallway outside of the den and a stairway leading up to the parlor level completes this floor. NOTE: we do have a long term tenant in a studio at the front of the house who is quite friendly and helpful; however there is a door in the hallway that closes and locks for complete privacy if you desire it. A beautiful carved mahogony staircase takes you up to the third level which contain master and guest bedroom suites. The master bedroom towards the back of the house has a king bed, love seat, television, walk in closet and tiled bathroom with a clawfoot tub, two person shower, and marble sink. There is also an ornate iron catwalk through the french doors that open onto a large deck overlooking the gardens. The guest suite has a king bed, lounge chair, television, tiled bathroom with shower stall and large bay window facing the street with its beautiful trees (3 seasons!) and the 8 additional row of Guastavino brownstones directly across the street. Up the final carved staircase is the fourth level that we call 'the kids floor' with 2 twin bedrooms and one double bedroom, a tiled bathroom with tub/shower, a tiled bathroom with shower stall, a laundry room and an open 'common room' which leads to a small deck also overlooking the gardens. There are ceiling fans in every room; central radiant heating and zoned air conditioning throughout the house. May not be suitable for groups with very young or infirm members.

A spectacular home base for enjoying the UWS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 9-day stay in this gorgeous townhouse. We love New York and had wanted to experiment with “living there” beyond our usual weekend-long hotel stays. We quickly identified the house as the most spectacular option on the upper west side, and our stay included having my best friend and her husband stay with us the first weekend, preparing a dinner party for six later in the week, and enjoying time for just the two of us.
The house was meticulously clean, smelled great, and was well-stocked when we arrived, which we appreciated very much. We currently live in a contemporary, loft-like condominium in downtown Cincinnati, so spending time in a turn-of-the-century New York townhome with gorgeous floors, woodwork, and period bathrooms, was a welcome contrast and treat. The only potential negative for some might be the verticality of the house – it is four stories, with no powder room on the main level. I welcomed the opportunity to get my steps in all throughout the day, but my husband who’s recently been through spinal surgeries didn’t find that so easy.
I recommend the house to adult groups of friends or couples, and probably families with a little older children, just because it’s such a vertical home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time as temporary UWS residents, grocery shopping, going to many nearby restaurants and identifying our favorite morning coffee shop, taking long walks in the neighborhood and Central Park, and attending performances from Elvis Costello at Carnegie Hall to The Realistic Joneses play on Broadway, to Birdland, to Bemelman’s Bar at the Carlyle for cocktail hour. I also appreciated that Pure Yoga is about a block away, and purchased a week’s pass with which I sampled four different classes. The homeowner provided a very thorough guidebook with useful information and recommendations for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and emergencies – everything we might need. She could not have been more accommodating.

An amazing vacation and an amazing townhouse

  • 5 of 5
The property was perfect for a family of 7 even though you could technically have a couple of more. Very well kept, the kitchen and dining living areas were so comfortable we had to pull our kids out to go out. Could not be in a better neighborhood. we had a small issue with plumbing in the kitchen that was taken care of immediately by the owners. Wonderful service, would come back again for sure..
