The Chatsworth, a landmarked 1904 Beaux-Arts mansion, fulfills the dream of living in an earlier, more elegant era while enjoying 21st-century amenities. Add to that its proximity to arts, culture, and recreation, and The Chatsworth presents a complete package when it comes to luxury living on the Upper West Side.
At the regal entrance of The Chatsworth, residents and visitors are greeted by the coat of arms of the Duke of Devonshire, whose home in England gave this New York building its name. It soon becomes clear why The Chatsworth stands out as a rare example of a restoration that pays homage to its history while looking toward the future. Every common space is designed to provide a popular service at a level of style and elegance that is hard to find, even in Upper West Side condominiums. The lounge room, for example, boasts a vaulted brick ceiling as well as ambient lighting and uber-plush decor to rival the best private clubs of England. If you prefer to unwind with a game of table tennis or pool, all that can be enjoyed in The Chatsworth’s game room, which is attached to a private screening room.
Designers Pembrooke & Ives also paid careful attention to how families actually live in this day and age and incorporated amenities that suit adults and children alike. It’s no surprise, then, that the colorful children’s playroom was given the same thoughtful treatment as other spaces located throughout the building. Children have different needs and interests at different stages of their lives, and even throughout each day. Adult types will find this room incredibly useful through the years thanks to a glass partition that separates its two areas into a tranquil side with tables and chairs for quiet reading, drawing, or homework sessions and an active side where kids can be more rambunctious. A television is provided and the entire area is visible from the lounge room, so grownups can take a break while kids play.
The residences at The Chatsworth are also a top draw for discerning Upper West Siders. Outstanding features include open floorplans with herringbone or wide oak plank flooring, coffered ceilings, abundant natural light, state-of-the-art kitchen appliances, and top-end finishes. Each home has marble surrounds and custom cabinetry with sleek stainless steel hardware, and several apartments present views of Riverside Park and the Hudson River. With all that The Chatsworth offers indoors, one might forget for a brief moment that beauty, culture, and excitement lie just outside its doors as well.
