Description

In the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, a remarkable duplex in a 1909 Italian Renaissance-style building offers a unique blend of historical elegance and modern functionality. This mint-condition residence is a perfect blend of historical charm and contemporary luxury, ready for immediate occupancy without the need for renovations. Once the residence of a renowned art dealer and the former home of Robert Duvall, this property exudes a rich cultural heritage and architectural significance.

The home dramatically greets you with an expansive living room, where 20-foot coffered ceilings create an atmosphere of grandeur and openness. The space is accented by original dark walnut moldings, meticulously restored to their pristine condition, and a striking west-facing leaded stained-glass window that bathes the room with natural light as the sun sets. At the heart of this room is an ornate wood-burning fireplace, embodying the fusion of art and architecture.

Adjacent to the living area is a spacious dining room and den, featuring west-facing original stained glass windows and a south-facing wall of leaded and stained glass windows. The room is further enhanced by a lighted Juliet balcony and an elegant fireplace mantle, complemented by built-in shelving.

The enormous, light-flooded chef's kitchen is a dream for culinary enthusiasts, boasting terra cotta floors, wood and leaded glass cabinetry, an eight-burner stove top, a vented stove hood, and the added convenience of a vented washer and dryer. The eat-in kitchen's design merges aesthetic appeal with practicality, making it ideal for both cooking and entertaining.

Upstairs, the duplex offers three bedrooms and a home office, ensuring ample space for both relaxation and productivity. The primary suite is a sanctuary of comfort, featuring a glass-tiled en suite bath and west-facing windows that overlook a picturesque view reminiscent of old-world Europe.

Adding to the home's appeal is a versatile ground floor room, perfect for a private office or high-end gym. This space includes large closets for storage convenience, and is accessible directly from the lobby. There is a nearby bathroom.

The building itself, located at 257 West 86th Street, is a testament to architectural artistry, showcasing period details such as a limestone base and robust columns. Residents enjoy modern amenities, including a new gym and a rooftop deck, all within a full-service cooperative setting. Pied-a-terre's are permitted.

Situated just blocks from both Riverside and Central Park, the duplex offers unparalleled access to the city's most iconic green spaces, as well as a plethora of dining and shopping options.

There is a capital assessment of $1885.25 per month, which expires June 30, 2024.
