A Light-Filled and Classical Townhouse
With an Unrivaled Parlour Floor and Garden for Entertaining

This turn-of-the-century Brownstone is seventeen feet wide with four stories and wonderful details. Each room boasts high ceilings and expansive windows. Plus, the parlour floor has an open kitchen/dining/living area that has multiple exposures and a skylight. Additional features include: five bedrooms, five bathrooms, multiple fireplaces, a Florida-style sunroom, third floor terrace, and a deep garden. This layout is the ideal setup for indoor and outdoor entertaining.

Located on a lovely, tree-lined block near some of the best private schools and neighborhood classics, 157 West 91st Street feels like home.

Garden Floor:
The garden floor is accessible via a private entrance under the stoop as well as from the main stairwell and a rear spiral staircase inside the townhouse. The floor is configured as a front bedroom (which could easily be utilized as a home office), followed by a Jack and Jill bathroom with private closets and dressing areas, and then a family room. Beyond the family room is a unique lanai with sliding glass doors. This indoor/outdoor space connects to the dining room above and provides a nice transition area to the rear garden.

Parlour Floor:
A gracious, well-appointed parlour floor is the hallmark of townhouse living. From the formal sitting room with original woodwork and shutters to the rear dining room with a wall of windows overlooking the garden, these spaces are satisfying.
The bulk of this parlour floor is occupied by a wonderful chef's kitchen complete with center island, walk-in pantry, and a cozy fireplace. A powder room is also located on this floor. Tall ceilings and side windows complete this floor.

Third Floor:
The third-floor hosts two spacious ensuite bedrooms. The front bedroom has a lovely alcove area and is full of natural light, which streams in through four windows. The bedroom at the rear of the floor has a private terrace.

Fourth Floor:
The uppermost floor of the townhouse contains two more bedrooms. A large master bedroom sits at the front, and the rear bedroom has a fireplace and picture window. A full bath, huge central walk-in closet, and ladder access to the roof complete the floor.

The tidy and dry cellar contains a laundry room and separate areas for both mechanicals and storage.
