This pretty, prewar five-room home offers the elegance of prewar scale and details with a 27' open formal entertaining expanse, a spacious eat-in kitchen with banquette dining, two bedrooms, one full bathroom and an overabundance of built-in storage throughout. Situated on a beautiful and prime tree-lined Upper West Side block, the location is superb. The pet-friendly building with fitness room, playroom, and beautifully landscaped roof deck allows for pieds-a-terre for convenience in ownership.
The beautifully proportioned layout offers a perfect balance for both entertaining and private living. The formal expanse showcases an open side-by-side living room and formal dining room filled with beautiful old-world details including high-beamed ceilings, crown, baseboard and picture frame moldings, hardwood floors and custom built-in bookshelves, window storage and a custom media cabinet. The windowed eat-in and renovated kitchen is very spacious with stainless appliances including built-in microwave and dishwasher. There is an abundant amount of cabinet storage, built-in banquette dining and two entrances that provide an ease for entertaining. The serene and stylish master bedroom is beautifully appointed with elegant trim, custom built-in storage, hardwood floors and features two closets. The second bedroom offers a deep, large closet and is currently configured with an extra-long custom loft bed with stair storage and built-in desk which is included in sale, however it is free-standing and can be removed for the next owner. The bathroom was renovated with a deep-soaking tub, subway tile, ceramic basket weave tile floor and pedestal sink.
160 West 87th Street is an elegant prewar cooperative building on a beautiful tree-lined brownstone block. Very well-maintained and financially sound, the building features a live-in superintendent and on-site porter, video security, air-conditioned lobby, a fitness room, playroom, personal storage (two storage units available for $100/month for both), a bicycle room, laundry room and a spectacular landscaped roof deck. The 9-story building was built in 1914 and converted to cooperative in 1975, one of the first in the neighborhood. There are 40 apartments. Pets and pieds-a-terre permitted. Washer/Dryers allowed with board approval. The co-op board is committed to maintaining the overall value of the building as can be witnessed by the ongoing improvements to the common areas. Renovations are welcome and well vetted by the board for compliance with the proprietary lease. In order to maintain one of the lowest maintenances on the UWS, the board has forgone the 24 hour doorman and instead invested in a fabulous live in superintendent who makes himself available to support not just the overall health of the building but all the residents as well.
