One-of-a-kind three-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex with fireplaces and a south-facing private terrace!
With a gracious layout and restored pre-War details complemented by contemporary finishes, replete with substantial private outdoor space, this home offers a perfect lifestyle, both for entertaining and the day-to-day. 10 ceilings are throughout the home.
Located in a boutique 1880s brownstone building on one of the Upper West Sides most beautiful historic blocks, the co-op has very low monthly maintenance, allows subletting and pied-a-terres, and does not require board approval for this sale. A storage unit is included.
The first floor of the home is floor-through. The grand living and dining room spans the whole width of the brownstone and has brilliant light through three large windows overlooking West 80th Street. It enjoys exposed brick, ceiling and baseboard wood moldings, an ornate ABC Home chandelier, and a wood-burning fireplace with carved-wood mantelpiece.
The chefs kitchen opens to the living room with a large kitchen island and features a true-vented range stove, stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator, abundant cabinetry, cork flooring, and Carrara marble countertops and backsplash.
Down the hallway from the living room and open kitchen are the second and third bedrooms, as well as a full Waterworks bathroom. The second bedroom has a decorative fireplace with carved-wood mantelpiece and a well-proportioned closet. The third bedroom, which is the smaller of the two, leads to the terrace, and has a half-height closet. This room could make for a wonderful home office, home gym, or guest room, in addition to serving as a full-time third bedroom.
One of the highlights of the home, the large private terrace is south-facing and overlooks the back gardens of the surrounding brownstones and buildings. The light is exceptional. The outdoor furniture on the terrace can be included with purchase.
Upstairs is the huge primary bedroom suite. The primary bedroom spans the whole width of the brownstone with three large windows. Rear-facing, it is pin-drop quiet and bright. Enter through the dressing room, which has a large closet and additional curtained closet containing the new stacked washer and dryer. There is plenty of room in the bedroom itself for multiple armoires or building out more closets. The primary bathroom has Waterworks fixtures and a full tub.
Other highlights throughout the home include handsome refurbished hardwood floors, red oak doors, through-the-wall air conditioning, Restoration Hardware vanities, and Rejuvenation lighting. The home is entered only two flights up in the brownstone, whose hallways have lovely pre-War details.
140 West 80th Street is a five-residence co-op in a beautiful 1880s-built brownstone, with very low monthly maintenance charges.
