The northwest corner of 78th Street and West End Avenue, located in the West End/Collegiate Historic District, is a much admired and well photographed UWS location. Of the eight original Flemish brick houses built as a single composition in 1886, almost all are once again single family homes. Now the house at 305 West 78th is available for sale. Originally created by Frederick White and recreated by Baxt/Ingui Architects, this four to five bedroom, single family home is done to gem-like, contemporary perfection. Steps from Riverside Park and close to Zabar's, Citarella, Fairway, Calhoun School, the Beacon Theatre and Lincoln Center, as well as the 1 train and crosstown buses. For the under $10M single family buyer, there is nothing else in the West 70's that compares. LAYOUT Parlor Entrance Through the signature recessed brick archway at the top of the limestone stoop, you enter onto the Parlor floor. This floor has an expansive open layout with a formal dining room at the front. The elegant living room has a wood burning fireplace and a butler's pantry in the extension. The restored box stair was and still is a brilliantly efficient way to connect the five floors of this home. New cherry and oak floors throughout. Garden and Kitchen Floor Access the garden floor from both under the limestone stoop and the interior box stair. A large, open planned kitchen with room for casual dining is located at the front. A pantry and plenty of cabinets providing ample storage. Adjacent to the kitchen is an informal living/family room with drop-down projection TV and surround sound. Glass doors lead onto a back yard garden with loggia dining. A powder room is also located on this floor. Third Floor The 3rd floor is entirely devoted to the master bedroom, bathroom, and dressing room suite, with private terrace. The front dressing room has wall-to-wall built-in closet space and could easily be converted into an additional bedroom or nursery. The spacious bedroom has a wood burning fireplace with marble mantle. Fourth Floor The fourth floor contains bedrooms in the front and back with a shared bathroom off the hallway. There is also a large laundry room that could be converted into an additional bathroom. Fifth Floor The top floor is currently laid out as a gym, and can alternatively be used as the fourth or fifth bedroom, office or hideaway for writer, artist or guest. Dramatic curved ceilings from the original mansard roofline have been preserved and the original staff room has been restored behind the gabled windows. The recent renovation included a new HVAC system, with new hot water radiators and Mitsubishi units for cooling, with five separate zones more
