First offering in over 50 years! Welcome home to the 27-foot-wide Charles A. Vissani House, a landmarked center hall townhouse, nestled on a beautiful tree-lined Upper West Side block. This stunning neo-gothic home offers a myriad of possibilities with a 30' wide lot, a width unheard of in today's market. Currently set up as an owners triplex with a meticulously landscaped garden, with rental income from 4 apartments and a street level office. This offering consists of 6,084SF with an additional 4,325 buildable SF on an 30x100' foot lot. The Vissani House offers a rare opportunity to acquire a commanding historic townhouse with a stunning 1300SF garden mere steps away from Central Park. The garden level is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath triplex with a newly renovated kitchen, laundry room and massive private garden. The Parlor floor features high ceilings, an expansive living/dining room with a working gas fireplace and a magical bay window overlooking the garden. The terrace off of the chef's kitchen and living room creates a dining or relaxing outdoor space overlooking the backyard. The large primary bedroom with en suite bath can easily accommodate a king bed and features wall to wall closets. There are two additional bedrooms and a center hall full bath. Interior features of this beautifully designed home include heritage tile, hardwood flooring, high ceilings and abundant storage. The basement provides a third full bathroom, extra closets and open storage/recreation space with access to the garden. The expansive fully landscaped garden is a private oasis to come home to. Surrounded by bamboo and ample flowerbeds, the garden offers the opportunity to have an outdoor escape in the city with room for dinner parties, a play area and for family pets to roam. There is a rare streetlevel passthrough, allowing guests to directly access the garden without having to enter the home. Commanding and dignified presence on the block, 143 West 95th Street boasts a fascinating history. Designed by James W. Cole and constructed in 1889, is a distinguished residence displaying a late Victorian version of the Gothic Revival style. This residence, however, was commissioned by the reverend Charles A. Vissani, who gained recognition as the first Commissary General of the Holy land for the United States. The original use of the building is reflected in the strong ecclesiastical overtones of the design whose fine detailing includes pointed and ogee arches, pinnacles, trefoils, and drip moldings. A gabled parapet and an elaborate stoop contribute to the grand scale and pleasing proportions of the building giving further distinction from the more typical Upper West Side rowhouse. All of these elements combine to produce a dignified Gothic-inspired design for a house associated with an important history in New York. Please inquire for a full setup!
