19 W 87TH Street
Extraordinary beauty and an exceptional value of approximately 7,000 finished interior square feet: sun-drenched, gracious, and grand, this extraordinary 5-story, 20' wide Central Park block townhouse offers the elegance and scale of late 19th/early 20th century architecture renovated by top NYC architect Oliver Cope and imbued with modern luxuries and comforts as well as lovely and landscaped outdoor space. This beautiful brownstone is currently configured with 5 floors + renovated cellar, 7+ bedrooms, 5 full baths and 2 powder rooms, full primary suite floor, garden level with den and huge yoga studio/gym, and a renovated basement floor set up as a recreation room with temperature-controlled wine cellar. This brownstone is a move-in, single-family home with a functional and flexible layout that can accommodate all needs, including plenty of options for both formal and informal entertaining, private living with numerous bedrooms, multiple work-from-home options, many amenity spaces, and guest suites. This grand scale home so close to Central Park is an amazing deal priced significantly lower than other comparable large homes on the block at just over $1100/sf!
The impressive scale of the house is enhanced by very high ceilings on every floor (nearly 11' on most floors and nearly 12' on parlor floor), abundant oversized windows throughout, beautiful garden and tree-lined block views as well as fantastic light streaming in throughout the day, setting it apart from most townhouses. Extensions on 3 levels have windows on two sides drawing fabulous light from both exposures and there is a large skylight at the peak of the house. This gracious home also boasts private outdoor space including a serene landscaped garden filled with blooming trees and plantings, as well as a large outdoor terrace on the fourth floor.
Comprising nearly 7,000 square feet (including cellar), the house was renovated with multi-zone central air conditioning, quality finishes and top-of-the-line appliances while beautifully preserving original interior and exterior details. Gorgeous architectural details include hardwood floors (some herringbone patterned and most with border inlay), decorative moldings, ceiling rosettes, wainscoting, solid wood doors, pocket doors, and 4 wood-burning fireplaces with elegant antique decorative mantles. Modern luxuries include multi-zone central air conditioning, security system, custom lighting, custom closets, audio speaker system, full laundry room, temperature-controlled wine cellar and water, electric and gas in the garden with full stone planters. Every bathroom is fully renovated, most with marble floors and surfaces and Waterworks fixtures. The fully outfitted chef's kitchen includes top-line stainless appliances including Bosch dishwasher, Viking pro 6 burner gas range with grill and griddle and commercial hood and 2 Sub Zero refrigerators. There is a kitchenette on the garden floor and a wet bar on the fifth floor.
Ideally located, this bright, gracious home is less than a half block from Central Park on a beautiful tree-lined Upper West Side brownstone block and surrounded by all the best the neighborhood has to offer. Situated in a charming and quiet historic district, the house was built at the turn of the century, circa 1900.
