Located steps from Central Park on a picturesque Upper West Side street, 26 West 87th blends the best of classic New York City charm with the convenience and functionality of modern day design. Built in 1910, the townhome has undergone a meticulous renovation that sought to preserve as many of the home’s original finishes as possible while updating key components like the kitchen, flooring, and mechanicals.
Behind a Renaissance Revival façade, the home offers 7 bedrooms, more than 6 bathrooms, and a total of 6,300 interior square feet. Brand new white oak flooring with mahogany and maple detail flow throughout, giving the home a fresh feel while maintaining an early 20th century look. Entry to the home is through an old world foyer featuring remarkably restored mahogany walls and an elegant chandelier. To the immediate left is a magnificent dining room that flows directly in to an oak and marble clad kitchen. Fully modernized, the kitchen features a Sub Zero refrigerator, a Bertazone range, clean white cabinetry, and a subway tile backsplash. The grand sitting room is laced with original details, none more apparent than the stately fireplace mantle and the 12’ plaster ceiling.
Most of the home’s 7 bedrooms lie on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors. The master suite occupies the entire 3rd floor of the home, spanning 1,100 sq. ft. and featuring an oversized bedroom, abundant closet space, a cozy library with a fireplace, and a masterfully restored bathroom that boasts dual vanity sinks, an oversized soaking tub, and a separate walk-in shower. The 4th and 5th floors contain 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms while the remaining bedrooms lie on the Garden Floor. The cellar level offers a temperature-controlled walk-in wine room and massive oak doors that have been wonderfully restored to present day standards.
26 West 87th is embedded in the heart of the Upper West Side. It is surrounded by a multitude of restaurants and cafes and sits just a half block from Central Park. With six beautiful floors and a neighborhood to match, this home is an extraordinary opportunity for buyers of any type.
