One of Lamb & Rich’s original townhouses in the West End-Collegiate Historic District is resolving to find a new owner in the New Year. The flexible 6,875-square-foot layout can either be a sprawling 6-8 bedroom single-family mansion, or a spacious quadruplex with a separate garden duplex rental. Add to that late 19th century original details and modern updates, and this could be the perfect home for anybody…with $10.9 million in their pocket.
Enter the home on the parlor level to find an elegant entrance foyer with curved mahogany pocket doors and a coffered rosette ceiling. Off the reception hall is a kitchen facing the tree-lined streets and a den overlooking the rear garden. A second living room with a wet bar is on the third floor, along with a study and dining room. All of these main rooms benefit from the entire 20-foot width of the home.
A master suite with tons of closet space and a large bath sits on the back of third level. On the opposite side, an office with its own walk-in closet and en suite bath can easily serve as another bedroom. Three other bedrooms occupy the fifth floor, along with laundry, storage and two additional baths.
The garden floor duplex has a living room with one of the home’s six fireplaces and a Murphy bed for guests. There’s also a dining room, walk-in closet, kitchen, lush garden, and a basement with a large recreation area and additional storage and laundry.
Other original details throughout the home include three wood-burning and three gas fireplaces with antique mantels, crown moldings, border-inlaid hardwoods, built-in bookshelves and cabinets, French doors and custom window shutters.
351 West End Avenue is part of a landmarked block of townhouses built around 1891. The quiet tree-lined street is filled with gorgeous townhouses and gardens, providing a peaceful retreat from the city. But don’t be fooled by the serenity of this unique block. The historic thoroughfare is actually just a block from Riverside Park, with shops, restaurants, and culture—including the Museum of Natural History—right nearby.
