Known for some of the most impressive (and expensive) apartments in New York City, the historic Apthorp condominium building at 390 West End Avenue in the heart of the Upper West Side was built for William Waldorf Astor in 1908. Located just minutes from Central Park, the unique building surrounds an interior courtyard. Asking $6,499,999, this five-bedroom residence is one of the building’s largest; distinguished by decorator-enhanced interiors accented with subtle painterly hues, the 4,200-square-foot home possesses the size and grandeur of a townhouse with condo convenience and amenities.

Natural light from tall classic windows illuminates the apartment’s many rooms, from grand and formal to cozy and colorful. Throughout, walnut-toned herringbone hardwood floors, moldings, and ceiling medallions reflect the building’s Gilded Age history.

An elegant entry hall with marble mosaic flooring is crowned by an ornate chandelier. Even the smallest rooms here are generous in size and proportion.

A large corner living room is an opulent hub for a diverse collection of living spaces. A well-appointed eat-in kitchen is traditional in style but warm and functional. The dining room is a formal affair, highlighted by an ornate fireplace.

Rooms flow easily from the living spaces to the bedroom wing. Bedrooms are chic and colorful, each a story of its own. Amenities at the Apthorp include full-time lobby attendants and a 6,500-square-foot amenity space with a private spa and fitness center, entertainment suite, children’s playroom, and craft center; individual storage rooms are available for purchase.
