The four-story, five-family townhouse at 135 West 78th street could compete with any of its neighbors for the title of the prettiest house on an elegant brownstone-lined Upper West Side block. Inside, the 20-foot-wide home is currently configured as five units including an owner’s duplex, a top-floor two-bedroom market-rate flat, and three one-bedroom rent-stabilized units. In addition to living in a large, characterful duplex with a glass-walled garden view and receiving income from the variety of rental apartments, the new owner has the future option of conversion to a 4,500-square-foot single-family home when units become vacant.

The listing photos show the owners’ two-bedroom, two-bath duplex that comprises the garden floor and half the parlor. A large living area is anchored by a dramatic central wood burning fireplace. A rear glazed wall looks out on a well-tended garden and patio. This unt also has use of a semi-finished basement.

The front parlor is configured as a spacious master bedroom for the duplex. Unique details include wood-framed arched windows and herringbone wood flooring.

The apartments that start at the rear of the parlor level have been well-kept and have high ceilings,  gracious layouts and lots of storage. The top-floor free-market apartment has been recently renovated with two-bedrooms, two baths, granite countertops in the kitchen, skylights and built-ins.
