This spectacularly designed Clarence True townhouse is one of an extant row of five overlooking Riverside Park. Built in True’s signature low-stoop Elizabethan Renaissance style, this New York City townhouse is distinguished by elegance and comfort. The interiors reference the tastes of the 19th century and the fine arts of the Renaissance and the Classical periods. The formal parlour and dining room recreate the past while incorporating modern touches. A wood-paneled elevator makes all six floors easily accessible. The chef’s kitchen contains everything you could desire: state-of-the-art appliances, generous counter space, and an eat-in area seating at least six. Built in speakers provide music on every floor. Whether your family prefers a breakfast on the hidden terrace overlooking Riverside Park, or a simple cup of coffee in front of Saturday morning cartoons displayed on your home theater screen, this house has what you need to feel at home.
Unlike many smaller Manhattan townhouses, this home was built to accommodate not only your family but also your personal staff. It contains over 7,500 square feet of usable space. The independent one-bedroom apartment under the eaves is perfect for a live-in nanny or maid. The convenient service entrance is camouflaged by attractive wrought ironwork. There is also plenty of workspace for your assistant, publicist, and other staff. An elevator means that your staff can access the entire house as easily and discreetly as possible.
