One of the Upper West Side’s widest landmarked brownstones is available to rent for $45,000 per month. The four-story, seven-bedroom townhouse at 37 West 87th Street has been renovated by architect Alexandr Neratoff, who focused on highlighting the home’s Victorian details–like carved wood moldings and original fireplaces–while giving it modern updates — like a massive solarium and rooftop patio.
Enter this suburban-sized 4,000-square-foot home and head up a flight of stairs with original carved wood railings to the first floor. The front family room has curved bay windows and an original fireplace. Off the family room is a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a breakfast nook, and custom cabinetry with pullouts and glass fronts. Towards the back is a grand salon with a wood-burning fireplace and an adjacent formal dining room.
On the second level, the master bedroom takes up the entire south side, boasting a wood-burning fireplace and built-in closets leading to a five-piece marble en suite with a large tub and a walk-in shower. On the north end, a second bedroom has a private 9-by-12-foot terrace and a full bath. Next door, there’s a generous home office. The third floor has four more bedrooms, one of which has a built-in desk and a lofted sleeping area. Two of the rooms are connected via a Jack and Jill bathroom and walk-in closet, and there’s a laundry room.
The penthouse level is where this home really shows off. There’s a 14.5-by-24-foot solarium with 12-foot vaulted ceilings, custom retractable shades, a closet, wet bar, dishwasher, full bath, and access to a 300-square-foot rooftop patio and a south-facing 18.5-by-12.6-foot balcony. Oh, and did we mention this place is just a few steps from Central Park?
