Description

A one-of-a-kind 7 room duplex with an expansive terrace at 15 West 81st Street, one of the best buildings on the Upper West Side near Central Park. This truly special residence was an original duplex as designed by Emory Roth himself and has only been enjoyed by 2 families in the long history of the landmarked building. Located on the 10th and 11th floors of one of the Upper West Side’s most distinctive prewar cooperatives, this magnificent residence presents an opportunity for gracious living and entertaining with unparalleled grandeur, scale, and quintessential open Upper West Side views. Resplendent with outstanding natural light streaming through the north-facing original stained-glass doors and windows leading to the private terrace.

This exceptional home features a graceful layout with beautiful herringbone floors, soaring ceilings, classic moldings, and elements of restored original finishes. The 10th floor is reached by a semi-private elevator landing. A gracious foyer greets you upon arrival with a sweeping original staircase leading to the upper-level bedroom suites. Both the grand-scale living and dining room are logically reached from the foyer and themselves combined.

The living room measures an impressive 26’ by 17’ while the dining room measures an equally impressive 20’ by 15’. The dining room itself is fit for large-scale entertaining and each room boasts classic pre-war details that have been lovingly restored. The living room features original stained-glass windows and doors which lead to the terrace which stretches 32 feet long and over 6 feet wide providing an outdoor oasis and a spectacular entertaining option.

The terrace boasts open Upper West Side views and an oblique Central Park view to the East. The eat-in kitchen sits on the opposite end of the foyer with enough space to create any chef’s dream. A large staff room is adjacent to the kitchen providing flexibility for numerous options including an even larger kitchen with informal dining, a den or study, or a 4th bedroom.

A laundry room and powder room complete the entry floor. A grand staircase features a beautifully restored original banister and leads to the three large bedroom suites on the upper level. The primary suite includes two large walk-in closets and an en-suite bath with a large picture window above the soaking tub and a separate shower.

Two additional bedrooms feature en-suite baths with original restored Emory Roth tiles and fixtures. Both bedrooms boast a tremendous amount of storage including an oversized dressing room that easily accommodates a home office or yoga room. 15 West 81st Street is a well-established, white-glove cooperative with a reputation for stellar service and located on one of the most sought-after blocks in Manhattan just off Central Park West and across from the Museum of Natural History and the Rose Planetarium.

Modern building amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, bike room, playroom, and separate storage rooms for owners. 50% financing permitted and a 2% flip tax payable by the purchaser.
