Description

A rarely available grand scale, mint condition 5-room residence located at 15 West 81st Street, one of the premiere, white-glove Emery Roth cooperatives on the Upper West Side. No detail was overlooked in the gut renovation of apartment 6G. The apartment features a gracious pre-war layout with northern exposures overlooking the historic brownstones on West 82nd Street.

The perfectly square receiving foyer leads to a 16 × 26 foot living room with three large windows and an elegant 15 × 18 foot formal dining room. The living room is grand enough to accommodate multiple seating and living spaces and separate dining. The large dining room features a wall of deep-set, custom built-ins, and enough square footage to create the perfect great room/dining room combination.

The windowed kitchen features all the bells and whistles for the chef in the family including custom cabinetry adorning both walls of the kitchen and the spacious butler’s pantry and the best high-end appliances including a Wolf Range, Viking combined convection microwave, SubZero fridge, and Miele dishwasher. The bedroom wing is completely separate from the living areas. The primary suite measures 13 x 21 feet with historic brownstone views and features a full-length dressing room equipped with custom closets and extensive storage space.

The en-suite primary bath features beautiful marble, a large custom vanity, and a separate rain shower all outfitted with top-of-the-line fixtures. The generous second bedroom measures nearly 13 x 18 feet with the same quintessential brownstone views and a custom-fitted closet. The second bath features a warm and stylish blend of imported marble and tiling and a custom-made vanity. Other features of this special residence include a vented washer/dryer, through-the-wall AC, brand-new windows, elegant custom window treatments, perfectly restored herringbone floors, and extensive closet and storage space throughout. 15 West 81st Street is a premier landmark cooperative with a reputation for white-glove service and excellent financials.

The building is 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.
