56 West 87th Street is a beautiful, 20'-wide, Upper West Side townhouse designed by the architect Charles Buek & Company in 1891.
Situated on a picturesque, tree-lined, townhouse block, steps from Central Park, this classic, Renaissance Revival-style, townhome on the south side of the street features abundant natural light, 3 outdoor spaces including a peaceful garden surrounded by low townhouses, a large terrace overlooking the garden in the master suite, and a balcony off the kitchen, grand ceiling heights, carefully maintained original details, 5 wood-burning fireplaces, 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, a den/library, home office and a fitness room all spread across approximately 7,500 square feet of interior space.
The property, which is connected by the main original staircase, is currently used by one family but is officially configured as 3 units, including a large quadruplex, a studio/office space in the parlor front, and a large floor through space on the garden level. As is, the house is set up perfectly for a live/work space, family compound, live-with-income, or can easily be unified into a grand single-family home.
56 West 87th Street is located within close proximity to premiere schools, shops, restaurants, the Museum of Natural History, Central Park, and public transportation.
