JUST OFF CENTRAL PARK WEST and very near the Central Park Tennis Courts and Reservoir, you will be surprised to discover this exceptional home. From the fourteen-foot entrance hallway, you enter the Great Room, taking note of the wood-burning fireplace, and know that you have found your private oasis. The soaring 11-foot, 3-inch ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows frame your view of the private shared garden. The approximately 4,000 square foot furnished lush green space offers a barbeque area, picnic tables, and even a basketball hoop. The south-facing bedroom is large enough for a king size bed, and could be divided to create an office or small bedroom. There are ample closets and hardwood floors throughout the apartment. The well-appointed open kitchen features floor-to-ceiling custom crafted cabinets. Cross-ventilation, as well as two new Friedrich through-the-wall air conditioning units, will keep this home comfortable in the warmer months.
Stroll down the street to Trader Joe’s, or around the corner in one direction to Whole Foods, and to D’Agostino’s in the other direction. Enjoy nearby cafes and restaurants, unique shops, spas, and services. This is the best of the Upper West Side!

Originally built in 1900 as nine brownstone units, the assembled property was purchased by a group of Columbia professors and converted to a cooperative in 1969. Additional living space was created by extending the building footprint by 20 feet on the north (back) side of the building. An elevator was installed, hallways were created, and now there are 34 unique residential units. The park-like garden space was created along the back of the property, and is enjoyed by all residents.
