Here is your unique opportunity to create your very own Prasada dream home.
Bring your architect and contractor, and craft your custom rambling residence -- right here on Central Park West.
In the early Twentieth Century, Central Park West was the canvas on which the best architects of the day were painting the growing Manhattan skyline. In 1905, Charles W. Romeyn and Henry R. Wynne raised the bar by designing their French Second Empire-style masterpiece. By 1907, Franklin and Samuel Haines had completed its construction, and the now iconic Prasada was born. This grand, estate-condition residence typifies precisely the attributes for which the Prasada is best known: A stunning landmarked exterior, a stupendous location, a top-tier staff, and a grand, gracious layout merge to make this this sprawling, needs-renovation residence a stand out home for all the right reasons.
The gorgeous manned elevator takes you from the beautiful vaulted-ceilinged lobby to one of New York's most lovely landings. The handsome windowed hall guides you to your front door. Behind it, past your grand gallery and down the iconic curved hall, a grand home unfolds beautifully before you. The over-scaled living room and dining room are separated by pocketed French doors, and offer dramatic side-long views of Central Park over the gorgeous steeples of a low neighboring church. Light and space reign supreme here in these big rooms, and both are flanked by fireplaces. The windowed eat-in kitchen offers a butler's pantry, a separate laundry room, and a perfect pass-through layout. Off of the curved hall are the big bedrooms - all three of which offer good closet space and en-suite windowed baths. With soaring, coved ceilings, a bay window and beamed ceiling in the dining room, and original herringbone and parquet floors throughout, this diamond-in-the-rough is a fabulous find and an exceptional opportunity indeed. With Central Park as your front yard, and with supreme proximity to most every area cultural, dining, and shopping destination, a Prasada life is easy and refined.
Welcome to space - welcome to light - welcome to your next creative opportunity. Your rare Prasada rambler awaits.
