First-floor pad with some prewar charm asks $1M on the Upper West Side

You’re getting something of a deal for this two-bedroom co-op up for sale at 301 West 108th Street on the Upper West Side. The spacious pad is asking $1.12 million due to its first-floor location and lack of views. (It hit the market for $1.249 million last year and didn’t sell.) But the listing does promise that it isn’t the “typical” ground-floor unit, considering that it’s “elevated well above ground level.” Prewar touches that include archways, moldings, wainscoting and hardwood floors–plus a stunning building lobby–don’t hurt, either. The apartment last sold in 2015 for $995,000.

A long, high-ceilinged hallway connects the railroad-style apartment. At the entryway, you’re greeted by a gracefully arched doorway and a gallery with enough room for an office space.

A breakfast bar connects the kitchen to the living and dining area. Classic touches are on display throughout the apartment, like the built-in shelving.

The windowed kitchen looks run-of-the-mill, with granite counter tops and GE appliances.

The hallway leads to the two bedrooms at the back end of the apartment, offering some extra privacy between the living spaces. Each bedroom is adjacent to its own bathroom. One was renovated with a stall shower and bamboo vanity.

Architecture buffs will swoon over this cooperative, known as the Manhasset and considered one of the premier examples of Beaux Arts architecture in the city. It was built in phases between 1898 and 1904 and today holds 124 units. The major appeal to get inside? The stunning, domed glass lobby that takes you to the apartments.
