326 West 89th STREET, NEW YORK, NY
326 West 89th Street is a beautiful five-story townhouse with a below-grade cellar tucked away in Manhattan’s West End Historic District. Its fully bonded exterior masonry walls support wood framing at the interior.
The project consisted of the gut rehabilitation and conversion of the multi-family residential townhouse into a luxurious single-family residence. The front entryway leads the visitor into the Parlor floor, where they are greeted by the living room, a formal dining room, and a striking two-story aluminum window. This window extends to the Garden level, where the residence’s once cellar is now a kitchen and casual dining area with rear garden access.
Upstairs, the entire second floor has become the master bedroom, complete with a spacious master bath. Four additional bedrooms with their own private bathrooms are on the third and fourth floors. The floor-to-floor flow has been tied together by richly finished wooden stairs and a newly installed elevator.
In addition to the new layout, the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were upgraded to meet current energy codes. A new bulkhead and rooftop terrace were added, and an exterior restoration, which included window replacement, was performed. Exterior work was subject to approval by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Thanks to savvy design choices, this narrow 19 foot townhouse has been transformed into a spacious home.
