341 West 87th Street is a gorgeous and historic apartment house located just around the corner from Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side. And you can now snag a six-digit apartment there, this one-bedroom co-op on the market for $650,000. Like the building itself, the apartment has a historic feel with one very impressive wood-burning fireplace, moldings and a juliet balcony. Renovations have brought nice quirks, like a bonus loft space and Moroccan tile decorations.
The living room is lit by the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows that lead out onto the juliet balcony. (Unfortunately the listing doesn’t offer up any photos of the balcony, which was lined with Moroccan tiles.) And under 12-foot ceilings, a loft has been situated over the kitchen and bathroom. It was designed as a flexible space that overlooks the lovely living area.
The galley kitchen was gutted and totally redone about two years ago, and is now decorated with subway tiles, Moroccan floor tiles, oak countertops and cabinets up to the ceiling.
The bathroom, too, got a complete makeover, with a walk-in shower and more Moroccan floor tiling.
Finally, the exposed brick-lined bedroom is large enough to fit a king bed. There are also lovely treetop views outside of the massive wood-framed window.
The entire building–which only has two units per floor–boasts historic details like its wide staircase with intricate woodwork. Residents also have access to laundry, bike storage and one large storage cage included in the maintenance fee. Just west of the building is Riverside Park, while a 10 minute walk east will get you to Central Park.
