One of our favorite Upper West Side mansions has hit the rental market. The 25′ wide elevator townhouse at 99 Central Park West, between 69th and 70th Streets, is available for rent at $19,900 per month.
99 Central Park West was constructed in 1897, and is owned by Congregation Shearith Israel at 2 West 70th Street, which is the oldest American-Jewish congregation in the country.
Central Park West is known for its majestic prewar buildings; as there are only a few townhouses along this picturesque avenue, finding one that is available is a rare occurrence.
This historic limestone property comes with a terrace with park views, elevator access to all four floors, central air, and 24 hour access to a resident manager.
The total space measures 3,300 square feet, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.
Park views can be enjoyed throughout the interior. The living room, shown below, comes with three oversized windows looking directly into trees, as well as a decorative fireplace.
On the same floor is the separate windowed kitchen and formal dining room.
The third floor comes with two bedrooms, a home office and washer/dryer.
The top floor holds two additional bedrooms and a charming den, equipped with built-in bookcases and a bar.
The den leads to a 350 square foot terrace boasting direct treetop views of Central Park.
