Original mahogany and oak paneling, inlaid parquet floors, carved mantels and a grand staircase. That’s the lowdown at 315 West 78th Street, an impressive townhouse in the Riverside Drive/West End Avenue area of the Upper West Side. It’s a huge house, with 4,000 square feet, 11 rooms, five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. It also has an impressive number of historic details intact.
The home has been offered as a rental for a few years now, priced between $15,499 and $16,000 a month. It’s back on the market asking $16,000 and is being offered furnished or not. It’s also available short term, for a minimum of a six-month stay. This is a spot we definitely wouldn’t mind hanging for six months.
This townhouse is boasting tons of wood details, from the beautiful original hardwood floors, to the wood detailing around the windows, to the mahogany and oak wall paneling, and finally the exposed ceiling beams. The light wood, coupled with the huge windows and high ceilings, keep the townhouse feeling extremely bright.
The kitchen’s been renovated but is also outfitted in a light wood. The listing doesn’t include a floor plan, but it looks as if the living room, dining room and kitchen are all located on the grand parlor floor.
Check out those original wooden shutters, as well as the carved mantlepiece! This townhouse is made to attract old house lovers.
There are a total of five bedrooms on the upper floors, each with big windows and wood floors.
One of the bedrooms actually has a doorway leading out to a patio. There isn’t much out there, but who cares when you’ve got all those glorious prewar details inside?
