Description

Come see this breath-taking five to six bedroom apartment with Southern views over the Natural History Museum and Central Park. Sun-drenched and super rare, this prewar home is perfectly situated on the finest Upper Westside block and rests near the top of one of Emory Roth’s finest pieces of architecture. Equally well-suited to grand entertaining and exceptional private life, this apartment is a seamless combination providing approximately 5,000 square feet of living space on a single floor.

Two grandly-proportioned side by side living rooms provide the home with copious living space and a modern, lofty feel.

The entertaining space flows through a grand gallery to one of the Westside’s largest kitchens and a full-sized dining room. There are two separate bedroom wings. Each bedroom wing features an over-sized primary bedroom with an expansive dressing area and ensuite bath.

The East bedroom wing has a primary bedroom with an adjacent office/bedroom and an additional generous bedroom. The West bedroom wing boasts a primary bedroom and bath as well as a second, generous bedroom. In total, there are 5-6 bedrooms each with it’s own ensuite bath.

Every room is elegantly proportioned. With twelve South-facing windows there are exceptional views day and night of Central Park, the Natural History Museum and the Midtown skyline. Of course, there is also a maid’s room/office and a laundry room.

Air conditioning is a combination of central and through the wall.

15 West 81st Street is a friendly, established full-service cooperative located just off Central Park West and across from the Museum of Natural History and the Rose Planetarium and Bull Moose Dog Run. The building amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, bike room, playroom, and separate storage rooms for owners. There is a full-time door staff and a live-in Superintendent.

50% financing permitted and a 2% flip tax payable by purchaser.
