330 West 87th Street is an impressive and elegant, 20’-wide, single-family home that is situated on a picturesque, tree-lined block just steps from Riverside Park. This flawlessly renovated, Queen Anne style townhome embodies the essence of townhouse living, combining modern amenities with turn-of-the-century scale and exquisitely maintained period details. Behind the uniquely handsome white façade with black trim, is approximately 5,100 square feet of living space (plus a finished cellar) anchored by a grand original staircase that is complemented by 14’ soaring ceilings, oversized windows, and an abundance of natural light. The setting creates a lofty ambiance that is ideal for relaxed yet sophisticated 21st century living and entertaining.
This impeccable move-in ready home is highlighted by a large, modern kitchen which flows seamlessly into the newly landscaped garden featuring cedar fencing and garden lighting. Additionally the home includes an expansive, sun-filled, three-room parlor floor with butler’s pantry, seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, including a sprawling primary bedroom with bay window, two additional terraces on the parlor and third floors, six fireplaces and a large skylight.
Located in close proximity to public transportation, Riverside Park, a convenient dog run, Hudson River Greenway, excellent academic institutions, the Museum of Natural History, and an abundance of fine dining and shopping options, 330 West 87th Street is a modern classic that represents the best of Upper West Side townhouse living.
The garden level of 330 W 87th Street is ideally setup from both a layout and design perspective. Accessed by the separate lower level entrance with a newly installed Ring security system, the front of the floor contains a mudroom and family room or guest bedroom with entertainment center and ensuite bathroom. Working towards the rear of the floor, one finds a powder room before entering the beautiful kitchen with a top-of-the-line Viking Professional range, Miele appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and plenty of cabinets and counter space. A center island ideal for large scale entertaining as well as two utilitarian desks complete the expansive cooking and entertainment area. In the rear of the floor there is a generous dining area that abuts the newly landscaped garden accessed by double French doors and dramatically lit by newly installed garden fixtures.
The parlor floor adds an element of sophistication to the more relaxed feel of the garden level. While the mahogany wood, exquisite fireplaces, stained glass and impressive mantles create an old-world feel, the expansive openness of the space adds a modern touch by allowing the light to flow from front to back. The elegantly proportioned floor comprises three rooms: a sitting room/formal dining room in the front, a living room in the back accented by an inviting terrace, and a spacious private office. A butler’s pantry with dumbwaiter seamlessly connects the front and rear rooms and the kitchen below, offering magnificent entertainment options for both family and friends.
The third floor contains the sprawling primary bedroom in the front replete with original details, two large walk-in closets, and a large ensuite bathroom. The rear part of the floor houses a second bedroom/den with a private terrace and another bathroom featuring a claw foot bathtub.
The top floor is highlighted by a large skylight that fills the landing and newly constructed staircase with sunlight. The unusually large landing provides another informal bonus space and is surrounded by four bedrooms in the front and back of the house, two of which contain fireplaces. The floor also contains two full bathrooms as well as a laundry room.
The finished cellar, which provides yet another setting for casual entertainment, is ideally utilized as a media room/gym and also includes storage, the building mechanicals, and a second laundry room.
