Set in the cultural and academic hub of the Upper West Side, this stunning townhouse is a masterpiece of turn-of-the-century details renovated in contemporary style. A perfectly genteel retreat, the five-story palazzo boasts plenty of room for your entire royal court, with gorgeous spaces for entertaining visiting artists and dignitaries. You'll experience your own renaissance whilst exploring the museums, concert halls, and fine dining the neighbourhood has to offer.
Your gracious signori are both physicians who share an enjoyment of music and chess with their three children.
This palatial residence is the perfect home-away-from-home for patrons of the arts. Traverse the five spacious stories via the grand staircase or the elevator — either way you'll discover a haven of classical influences melded with modern style. Wooden herringbone floors drench the home with honey-coloured warmth, while classic moulding adds an elegant touch. Enter on the first floor, where you'll find a kitchen, dining area, and play room. A small patio off the kitchen is perfect for taking in the air or enjoying a glass of Chianti.
Climb the grand staircase, which rises like an arpeggio through the home, and you'll come across the second floor. The spacious sitting room and library are perfect for entertaining guests, and the grandiose piano room with its ornate ceiling is sure to inspire an evening of chamber music.
When the revelries wane, retreat to the inner sanctuary of the fourth floor, which houses the master bedroom, with a walk-in closet and private deck. The lords and ladies of your household can choose from among the three colourful third-floor bedrooms or the fifth-floor guest bedroom (which features a kitchenette).
Although primarily residential, the Upper West Side never lacks for things to do. Patrons of the arts rejoice: The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York State Theater, Avery Fisher Hall, the Juilliard School of Music, and a number of other venerable institutions are scattered throughout the neighbourhood.
The home spans over five floors. On the first level you'll find a playroom, dining room, kitchen, bathroom with a shower, and private garden patio. On the second floor there is a library, piano room, sitting room, kitchenette, and half bathroom. On the third floor you'll find the a bedroom with a king sized bed, a full bathroom, a bedroom with a twin bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a bedroom with two twin beds.

This townhouse is home to one dog, a few turtles, and small fish that live in a tank. This home may not be suitable for people with allergies. While the dog will not be in residence during guest stays, the fish and turtles will be. A caretaker will stop by twice a week to feed the fish.
There is no wardrobe in the third bedroom but there is hanging space in the hall closet located just outside the room.
Since the onefinestay photoshoot, this family home has acquired additional personal belongings, particularly in the third and fourth bedrooms.
Since the onefinestay photoshoot, a fifth bedroom has been added to the fifth floor. We'll be taking new photographs soon.
