With 2,512 square feet of space to work with, it’s not too much of a challenge to find space for everyday life, but not everyone could make it look this good–or this effortless. According to the listing, townhouse interiors architect du jour Elizabeth Roberts has had a hand in giving this five-bedroom pre-war condominium at 100 West 80th Street a perfect layout for family life, plus lots of options and plenty of laid-back modern style. Asking $5.5 million, the home looks just right in the elegant Orleans, surrounded by greenery and Upper West Side culture.
Located in a classic Manhattan residential enclave across from the American Museum of Natural History, this sprawling corner apartment has eight rooms and views of the museum park and grounds. Light-filled common rooms are both pretty and practical, framed by 10-foot ceilings, tall windows and preserved pre-war details. An expansive open living/dining room is served by a casual-chic, spacious and sunny east-facing kitchen.
A big foyer is filled with art and color, and a pale and tranquil east-facing playroom with plenty of light and clostes adds color in decorative details.
In the massive master bedroom, there’s more than enough room for office space and a sitting area. Just outside is a room-sized walk-in closet with laundry.
Smaller bedrooms–including a good-sized staff/guest suite with a separate entrance–also have abundant storage to go with their carefully-curated good looks.
Built in 1900, the French Renaissance Beaux-Arts style landmarked Orleans is a decidedly non-stuffy full-service residence with a 24-hour doorman and an elegant lobby.
