Originally built in 1894 as a row of eleven townhomes, 222 West 79th is a one of the last fully intact homes of the ambitious project by architects Thom & Wilson. Approximately 6,207 square feet, the home is currently configured as an owner's triplex, Pilates studio, and restaurant space. The Renaissance Revival home benefits from mixed use zoning and over 12,000 square feet of air rights, however it is in a landmarked district. The property is perfect for a live with income opportunity or easily configured into an office, business, boutique hotel or single family home.
This storied home has incredible history with the most notable inhabitants being the Shubert family, renown theater developers, producers, and managers. Largely credited with the development of Manhattan's Theater District, many attribute the city's spectacular theater scene to the family's artistic endeavors.
The landmarked brick and limestone building features the original embellished balustrade and is perfectly positioned among the Upper West Side's best restaurants, shopping, museums, and Central Park.
A full commercial kitchen complete with two walk in refrigerators, three sinks, stove, grill , and dishwasher along with a sizable storage space serve the restaurant above. The mechanicals for the building are also located here. Central air conditioning is built in here for the cellar and garden levels.
As you enter the elegant restaurant space you are immediately greeted with large quartz bar and exposed brick wall. The space has ample bar seating in the front and table service in the back.
Currently used as a Pilates studio, the parlor floor features an open living area with large bay window. Down the hall are two full bathrooms and a kitchen with dishwasher. Just beyond the kitchen are two hallway closets and two office spaces.

Additionally, this floor includes a powder room and laundry.
