Townhouse pick of the week

A sprawling, newly renovated townhouse steps from Central Park

This Upper West Side townhouse comes with the kind of sprawl rarely seen outside the 'burbs: Five bedrooms, six baths, two half-baths, and three outdoor spaces span its six stories, and you'll also find party-enhancing features like a wine cellar, rec room, and wet bar. Plus, its location is family-friendly, just half a block from Central Park and a couple more from the Museum of Natural History. Naturally, the townhouse, listed by Douglas Elliman, comes with a $17.4 million price tag that puts it firmly in the realm of fantasy for most of us--but we can still take a peek inside. 

On the ground floor, a foyer opens onto a spacious, sunny dining room with bay windows; just past it an open eat-in kitchen comes with generous counter and storage space, a cozy breakfast nook, and stylish details like pendant lighting. The kitchen doors open onto a landscaped garden patio with ample room for outdoor entertaining. 

The second floor is taken up entirely by the living room (see main image), separated into two sunny sitting areas by additional pantry space. On the third floor, you'll find the master suite, which includes a private balcony, a dressing room, and walk-in closet. Its huge en-suite bath is especially notable for its spa-like feel, with its toilet and walk-in rain shower hygienically split into two stalls, and a soaking tub nestled right against a window. 

The four additional bedrooms occupy the top two floors, and the home is capped off by a large, landscaped roof deck. The exterior  (shown above) is striking from the street as well, with an intricate, Renaissance Revival facade preserved during its recent renovation.
