Located on a charming, quiet townhouse block lined with trees is 112 West 87th Street, a newly renovated 18’ wide single-family home that offers approximately 6,400 square feet of interior living, large elevator, spacious south-facing garden, a terrace, and an AV smart home system. Originally built in 1888 by architect John G. Prague in the Queen Anne style, this home boasts a clean brick and brownstone facade with a dramatic stoop leading to the home’s formal entry.
The current owners have recently done a full renovation – completed fall 2020 – of this wonderful home to both lovingly restore historical detail and provide the best in contemporary living. Upgrades include, but are not limited to, all new electrical and plumbing, new HVAC system (for both cooling and heating) with redundant steam heating system, large elevator, structural reinforcement, a new Kemper roof, new façade, and a total smart home system capable of controlling thermostats, lights, sound system, and camera security system.
The basement, with its unusually tall ceiling height above 9 feet, features light wells at the front and rear to allow for more natural light. In addition to a large informal den/tv room, hobby space, and extra storage, this floor also houses the property’s mechanicals.
The garden floor opens to a sizable mud room that includes a spacious bike room/storage closet, perfect for storing oversized items. Continuing through this level you will find yourself in the home’s newly renovated eat-in kitchen equipped with two Miele dishwashers, a Sub-Zero fridge/freezer, two additional Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers, and a Wolf eight-burner gas range with a vented hood. Off the kitchen sits a bright sunroom that looks out onto the garden that includes a natural gas barbecue. A half bathroom and a laundry room with a dog shower complete this floor.
Upon entry through the beautifully restored original wood front doors, you are welcomed into a grand foyer with high ceilings and a large coat closet. Beyond is a sun-filled living area with gorgeous ceiling moldings and two decorative fireplaces. Adorned with a library in the rear, complete with rolling ladder, this floor provides the perfect space for entertaining or enjoying quiet time at home. This level of the home contains many original details—woodwork, mantles, and stained glass windows. For added convenience, a powder room is also on this floor.
Ascend the original staircase to the home’s third floor, which offers two generously sized bedrooms—each with ample closet space—and two full bathrooms. Both bathrooms have heated floors. All bathrooms throughout the home have exhaust fans that are controlled by motion and humidity sensors.
The primary bedroom connects to the primary bathroom and dressing room, creating a full-floor suite. The renovated bathroom has a double vanity, heated floor, a claw-foot tub, and a separate shower stall. The dressing room has a charming terrace off the rear and a center dresser that is perfect for additional storage.
An oversized skylight at the top of the stairs floods the fifth floor with natural light. Two additional bedrooms and one bathroom serve this floor. There is also direct staircase access to the roof from this level. The current owners put in a new Kemper roof and currently keep a small vegetable and herb garden.
A block away from Central Park, 112 West 87th Street is in close proximity to amazing restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and transportation.
