This quintessential Queen Anne style townhouse is in impeccable condition. Significant renovations were completed in 2022. Boasting 20 feet of width, exceptional ceiling height throughout, and perfect proportions from room to room, the flow of this townhouse is highly desirable. It combines period character with all the modern amenities fitting a home of this caliber. The entertaining floor welcomes your new art collection.
330 West 87th Street is a home that will serve any lifestyle. It is an ideal mix of formal and casual spaces. Plus, there are three outdoor areas–a well-appointed garden and two terraces–suited for private relaxation or luxurious entertaining. Additional highlights include a massive kitchen, five full and two half bathrooms, seven bedrooms, and a finished cellar which serves as the perfect bonus space or gym. In 2022 there were a number of upgrades completed, including: refinishing the floors, refurbishing millwork, upgrading lighting throughout the townhouse, newly professionally polished marble in all of the baths, installing Ring security, fully repainting the interior and installing all new flues for the fireplaces. The fireplace in the parlor has been converted from gas to wood burning. To top off all the recent upgrades, the stoop has been completely redone, waterproofed, and painted with long lasting Epoxy paint. The front doors, as well as the garden doors, have all been redone. Located steps from Soldiers and Sailors Monument, Riverside Park dog run, Hudson River Greenway, and all UWS favorites, this single-family townhouse is the touchstone of refined living.
All these recent updates (and there are more!) makes this single-family townhouse an outstanding value on the Upper West Side.
