This two-bedroom apartment occupies the top floor of the townhouse at 39 West 87th Street on the Upper West Side. It comes with private, undeveloped roof space accessible through an internal staircase within the apartment–meaning that the owner has a blank slate to design their dream roof deck. The co-op, decked out with historic carved wood and some quirky modern additions, has just been listed for $1.195 million.

The apartment is three flights up from the entrance of a historic brownstone co-op. Some of the townhouse’s original details remain, like the wood mantlepiece around the fireplace, wood floors, and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.

Right off the combined living and dining room is a country-style kitchen with a retractable skylight. It’s been outfitted with unique floor tiling and custom open shelving.

The master bedroom boasts another fireplace (now doubling as a headboard) plus a walk-in closet. The second bedroom comes with some extra loft space.

The painted internal staircase is located right off the living room. Right now it’s a raw outdoor space but comes with the promise of renovating it into a customized roof deck. And with a great location a half block from Central Park, the views include historic townhouses and greenery.
