This 19th-century New York City townhouse, listed for $15 million, sits above a 33-foot indoor pool

There’s no doubt that this townhouse in New York’s Upper West Side neighborhood was special when it was built in 1891, and now, more than 130 years later, the home remains a desirable piece of residential real estate.

The 19th-century townhouse on West 70th Street was built by architect Gilbert Schillinger, who designed residences and commercial buildings throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. The 20-foot-wide townhouse spans 8,500 square feet over six floors, with four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two powder rooms.

The focal point of the great room is a massive black marble fireplace.

The home has been transformed to feel exceptionally spacious and airy, with a 60-foot great room and soaring ceilings. It’s rare to find a townhouse in New York City that has so much natural light on both sides thanks to the low-rise buildings surrounding it. This means that future owners can enjoy natural sunlight all day long and will enjoy fantastic views of the city from almost every room. A beautiful wooden staircase connects all six floors, as well as the roof, as well as the elevator.

Listing agent Lisa K. says: Lipman with Brown Harris Stevens: “This home is a perfect fit for luxury apartment buyers.” “It offers all the things new construction offers, with the benefit of an unparalleled location in a prominent neighborhood and lower monthly fees than you would find in a condo. It’s one of the best buildings in Manhattan.”
