This Upper West Side brownstone duplex co-op at 31 West 70th Street, asking $1,968,300, is a confluence of Manhattan apartment dream factors: It’s half a block from Central Park, has a wealth of private outdoor space, and is filled with rich architectural details that keep the cookie-cutter blues far away. The renovated pre-war duplex is currently set up as a two-bedroom home with two and a half baths, but it can easily be expanded to include three bedrooms with plenty of space left to spare.

The park block co-op is a walk-up, but it’s worth the effort. On the lower level of the duplex is a grand living room with ceilings of nearly 12 feet, exposed brick walls, and a wood-burning fireplace.

A newly-renovated pass-through kitchen situated between the living and dining rooms has high-end, fully integrated appliances and industrial charm. The formal dining area has more exposed brick and another wood-burning fireplace. Also off the living room is a renovated full bath with modern fixtures, beautiful stone, and fresh paint.

A second bedroom could be used as a home office; a third bedroom could be created in the current formal dining room space (see the alternative floor plan in the gallery below). There’s plenty of storage including three storage lofts and California Closets throughout the apartment.

Make your way up the spiral staircase for a private garden paradise. A full-floor master suite includes a washer/dryer for convenience and a custom retractable door that opens onto a north-facing terrace for outdoor living.

Two more verdant landscaped terraces feature automated irrigation systems. The 1000-square-foot, south-facing terrace is planted with annuals and perennials including a living green roof.

This boutique Upper West Side co-op allows subletting, pets and pieds-a-terre. The building features a newly renovated entrance and common space, and the exterior facade has been freshly repointed and sealed.
