40 West 74th Street is an architectural masterpiece. This palatial 25-foot wide Neo-Georgian limestone and brick mansion was originally designed by Percy Griffin in 1906. On this historical block, 18 Neo-Georgian townhouses were built at the turn of the century by the Clark family, who also built the Dakota.

Drenched in sunlight, the mansion is currently configured as a two-family home and boasts timeless elegance with an abundance of original prewar architectural details. The interior features six stories plus a windowed finished basement which total just over 11,000 square feet. The exterior spaces total 1,349 square feet and include a south-facing garden, a large dining terrace off the kitchen, and on the 6th floor a roof garden and south-facing terrace.

There are six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and four powder rooms. The elegant entertaining rooms all have grand-scale and include a salon, two living rooms one of which is a corner, two formal dining rooms, a parlor, an eat-in kitchen with a windowed breakfast room, a second kitchen, a library, a media room, an entertainment room, a windowed home gym, and a laundry room.
