Features, Interiors, More Top Stories, My SQFT House Tours, Upper West Side 

6sqft’s series “My sqft” checks out the homes of New Yorkers across all the boroughs. Our latest interior adventure brings us to the Upper West Side apartment of Canine Styles owners Mark Drendel and Chad Conway. Want to see your home featured here? Get in touch!

When Mark Drendel and Chad Conway met on Fire Island 21 years ago, they didn’t know that they’d one day claim ownership of “the world’s only Dog Lifestyle brand.” Despite the wild success of Canine Styles, also the oldest dog emporium in New York City, this couple remains down-to-earth and grounded in their family, which includes their high school-aged son, 13-year-old border terrier Katie, and year-old miniature schnauzer Izzy.

But of course, their home, located in the Art Deco Central Park West building The Century, is just as fashionable as their business. They describe Canine Styles as having “a flair for traditional, classic but up-to-date design,” which holds true for their recently renovated apartment, too. Mark and Chad’s basic design concept was wanting guests to not be completely sure what city or era they’re in. By mixing the space’s Art Deco bones with their modern art collection, contemporary furnishings, and antiques spanning from the 18th century to the 1960s, they’ve created a uniquely stylish space. 6sqft recently took a tour and chatted with this lovely couple about the history and future of Canine Styles, what a normal day at home looks like, and their thoughts on raising a family (human or four-legged!) in NYC.

All of that, this way

227 Washington Avenue, cool listings, clinton hill, townhouses, rentals

Historic Brooklyn townhouses are at a premium, and they’re a lot of work to maintain.

It will, however, cost you $5,500 a month for this 1,700-square-foot rental at 227 Washington Avenue.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Tribeca

This full-floor, pre-war Tribeca loft condominium is truly, as the listing implies, a warm and stylish exception in a sea of fabulous but frosty new developments. Asking $3.095 million, the spacious 1,835-square-foot home at 42 White Street is more civilized than the average loft, though more laid-back than the average townhouse, and currently has enough books and art to satisfy an entire generation of culture-hungry New Yorkers.

144 west 82nd street, upper west side, corcoran, single-family townhouse

The current owners of the Upper West Side townhouse at 144 West 82nd Street took on a careful renovation that they’re hoping will appeal to a new buyer. The 6,193-square-foot residence was transformed into a grand single-family home, with impressively restored, ornate interior details paired with modern appliances and perks like a wine room and elevator. (They’ve also finished much of the interior in shades of seafoam green.) The owners bought in 2000 for $3.6 million–post reno, it’s asking a $13.9 million.

The interior will impress

Chelsea, Cool Listings, Interiors

The Neo-Classical townhouse at 146 West 16th Street sits on a dreamy historic Chelsea side street, and one of the apartments inside is just as charming. The two-bedroom apartment spans the entire floor and has been renovated. It sold in 2010 for $899,000, in 2014 for $1.29 million, and now it’s asking $1.399 million. Interior details like walnut stained oak floors, whitewashed exposed brick, an original decorative marble mantel, plus a wall of windows facing 16th Street are sure to impress.

220 west 148th street, harlem, studio, CORE

There’s no overlooking this studio apartment from the former Harlem public school at 220 West 148th Street. Carved from the early 1900s school building, this is a 750-square-foot pad with 12-foot ceilings and light through three exposures. In this bright space, the current owner has packed every corner with a rococo-inspired design. Plenty of elaborate touches make this feel less like a tight studio and rather a lofty apartment with plenty to look at.

Historic Kips Bay townhouse with room to grow asks $4.3M

By Michelle Cohen, Tue, February 13, 2018

205 East 31st Street, cool listings, kips bay, townhouses

This mid-19th century townhouse in Manhattan’s often overlooked neighborhood of Kips Bay might be a dime a dozen in a Brooklyn neighborhood like Cobble Hill. But in Midtown it’s asking $4.3 million and it looks as cute as a button somehow. This four-story-plus-cellar Greek Revival-style (officially) three-family home sits on a pretty tree-lined residential street. At 18-inches wide its well-maintained and fetching façade is highlighted by custom contrasting shutters.
