If you’re a fan of comedy’s It girl, instead of just watching “Inside Amy Schumer,” you can actually go inside Amy Schumer’s home, a charming Upper West Side co-op that has just hit the market for $2,075,000, according to the Post. The floor-through residence occupies the top story of a historic townhouse on West 80th Street, just steps away from the Museum of Natural History. In addition to its cozy traditional decor, it offers two wood-burning fireplaces, several skylights, and a beautiful private roof terrace.
The sunny living/dining room has high ceilings, a carved wooden mantle, and built-in bookcases that Amy uses to display both her books and wine. We like the combination of traditional elements like the sofa and rug mixed with the industrial coffee table, contemporary bar, and rustic dining table.
The skylit kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances and attractive open shelving and cabinets.
The master suite is large enough to accommodate a cozy seating area near the second fireplace, this one with an elegant marble ledge. There’s a window seat and more built-in shelving, and the master bath has a claw-foot soaking tub and separate shower. The other powder room has a washer/dryer.
A private staircase goes to the amazing roof terrace, complete with a mature garden, deck seating and bench storage, gas grill, trellis, and stunning views.
Schumer bought the apartment almost exactly a year ago for $1,695,000, the previous asking price. At the time, it was decked out in a French-country style, and while we liked that look, we do prefer the comedian’s more refined taste.
