TOWNHOUSE experts Leslie J. Garfield & Co. are listing a one-of-a-kind Upper West Side townhouse for $14.25 million.Owned by hotel magnate Sam Domb, the five-story house at 318 West 81st Street (pictured top) , was built in 1898. After being used as a rental for several years, Domb had it gutted and turned into a single-family mansion.
Its grand trappings include “a baronial style grand entrance hall,ˮ rear garden, a Clarence True staircase and landings with pillars and arches as well as an elevator.
It has 13 rooms in all, including five bedrooms, a formal living room, dining room, media room, den and “double-deckerˮ terrace off of a fifth floor family room.
Richard Pretsfelder, partner at Leslie J. Garfield & Co. said, “This remarkable townhouse presents a real once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of the Upper West Side’s wonderful history.”
West 81st Street is a favorite of the rich and famous. The house is a neighbor of The Beresford, home to the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Glenn Close and Diana Ross.
Corcoran is listing the Park Slope townhouse owned by actors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt.
586 4th Street has been given a careful renovation to modernize its interiors while preserving the original details of the home, such as stained glass windows, built-in leaded glass cabinets, detailed inlaid floors, paneled dining room and artisan quality crown moldings and millwork.
There is a backyard with blue stone and a cedar fence, and technological updates include radiant heated floors and custom motorized shades.
Corcoran agents Karen Talbott and Kyle Talbott have it listed at $8 million.
THE workshop series launched by Bohemia Realty Group continued this month with a design-focused session.
Agent Peta Couzens will moderate “How to Design Your Rental on a Budget,” on Tuesday, September 26, from 7 to 8 p.m., at La
Maison d’Art, 259 West 132nd Street.
“Finding ways to personalize a rental without spending an excessive amount of money or violating the terms of a lease can be difficult,” said Sarah Saltzberg, co-founding principal of the real estate brokerage.
“This workshop will help people think outside the proverbial design box using a variety of sources, styles and color palettes.”
