Description

A rare opportunity to live in a spectacular 8 room duplex as originally designed by Emery Roth with sweeping views of Central Park, the Rose Planetarium and Museum of Natural History, and the Midtown skyline. This masterpiece has only been enjoyed by 3 families in the long history of the landmarked building, 15 West 81st Street. Located on the 12th and 13th floors of one of the Upper West Side’s most distinctive prewar cooperatives, this magnificent residence offers unparalleled grandeur, scale, and views. Resplendent with outstanding natural light streaming through the south-facing windows, the sprawling abode features a graceful layout with beautiful herringbone floors, soaring ceilings, classic moldings, and beautifully restored original finishes. The 12th floor is reached by a semi-private elevator landing.

A gracious gallery greets you upon arrival with a sweeping staircase. On the south end of the gallery is a sprawling and sun-flooded living room measuring an impressive 27 by 18 feet. The living room offers stunning views from three large windows overlooking the Rose Planetarium and sweeping across Central Park and the Fifth Avenue and Midtown skylines.

Additional features of this elegant room include tall beamed ceilings, and beautifully restored herringbone floors and moldings. On the north end of the gallery is the stately square formal dining room adjacent to a fully-equipped butler’s pantry featuring a wet bar, wine storage, and plenty of counter space. Further north is the state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen featuring two large windows.

Top-of-the-line appliances include a Viking cooktop with a vented hood, double Viking wall oven, a large SubZero fridge, a Miele dishwasher, and a vented washer/dryer. There is a large center island with seating and a tremendous amount of marble-clad counter space and custom cabinetry. The intact staff room with an en-suite powder room is ideal for a guest room or home office.

An additional powder room in the gallery completes the first floor. The grand staircase features a beautifully restored original banister and leads to the three sprawling bedroom suites. The primary suite includes two large walk-in closets, a windowed dressing room and a perfectly restored, original Emery Roth bath with a deep soaking tub and separate shower. The views from the primary bedroom are simply breathtaking offering the same sweep over the Museum, Central Park, and the skyline.

At the other end of the long, upstairs hallway are 2 generously proportioned bedrooms featuring en-suite baths and excellent closet space. 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.
