New on Market! 117 West 78th Street is a charming, sun-filled townhouse situated on West 78th Street, less than a block from the Natural History Museum and Gardens and one block from Central Park. Currently configured as a two family home and delivered vacant, this house is easily converted to a single family or can remain as two duplexes, as it has existed for the past fifty years. Another possibility is to create an owner's triplex with an income producing garden apartment. Two entrances, a formal stoop entrance and a gated entry under the stoop to the garden level, allow for various combinations. Original details from 1889 include fireplaces on each floor with original mantles, French doors to the 10'x10' terrace overlooking the garden and folding shutters. The garden is a private sanctuary, shaded by mature trees with a stone, ivy-covered wall as a backdrop. The parlor floor has high 11.3' ceilings; the 3rd and 4th floors have 9.6' and 10' ceiling heights respectively. The interior square footage is approximately 3,400 square feet. The cellar provides for ample storage with an additional, approximately 900 square feet.
