Among the premier architects of New York's Gilded Age, Elisha Harris Janes and Richard Leopold Leo beautifully transported the traditions of Paris Ecole des Beaux-Arts to the City's Upper West Side. Built in 1900, this five-story townhouse at 311 West 100th Street is one of their finest single-family homes in the Bloomingdale District.
At 18-feet wide and spanning 5,080 square feet with an additional 1,000-square-foot basement and 750 square feet of outdoor space, the entire building has been re-pointed, repainted and upgraded with an aesthetic that matches the architect's original grade vision.
With 8 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, this sprawling home includes two terraces and an intimate backyard with a spiral staircase to the deck off the kitchen. There are two additional kitchens on the 1st and 5th floors where the owner's grown children lived. The building has a certificate of occupancy for three units but has been used as a single home for the past 15 years.
The luxurious master bedroom wing features a large master bath with two closets, while curving historic windows make the second floor living room and third floor library enviable areas for entertaining. This serene stretch of the Upper West Side, named Bloomingdale after the Dutch town Bloemendall, is a tree-lined block just down the street from Riverside Park. A selection of diverse restaurants and shops off Broadway are just steps from your front door, while the 1 train at 103rd Street and the express 2/3 at 96th Street provide rapid transportation anywhere in NYC.
