$1.6M Upper West Side duplex is perfect for a chilly fall day

What more could you need in fall than a cozy home with a big wood-burning fireplace, lots of exposed brick, and plenty of room for furniture to curl up on? This two-bedroom co-op at 14 West 87th Street along Central Park West fits the bill. The listing calls it “a duplex home that feels like your own townhouse.” We just think it’s the perfect cozy pad for the chillier weather.

The apartment is located in a historic townhouse less than a half block from Central Park. Because it’s a duplex, the living room has double-height, 14-foot ceilings. This is the best spot in the apartment, with the fireplace, built-in bookcases and treetop views out the windows.

Right off the living/dining area is the kitchen, which has been renovated and boasts a little of its own exposed brick.

The bedroom on the lower floor looks like it’s being used as a den. The hardwood floors and exposed brick are in rooms throughout the apartment.

A spiral staircase takes you from the first floor to the lofted bedroom and ensuite bathroom. As the listing points out, it’s a flexible space that’s open to the living room below, and could be transformed into an upper-floor entertainment area.

14 West 87th Street is a small co-op that lacks a lot of perks, but also boasts a lower maintenance of $1,477 a month. Hopefully it’ll attract a buyer that will put that wood-burning fireplace to good use.
