Here’s a six-story single-family home at 337 West 87th Street with space galore: 8,000 square feet, to be exact, plus another 1,700 square feet outdoors. The whole place has been renovated with luxurious modern finishes, including a marble powder room, skylights, custom cabinetry, walk-in closets and more. In case you’re wondering how you’d be able to climb six stories of your home everyday without breaking a sweat, it is outfitted with an elevator that goes from the cellar up to the penthouse level. Of course, all this doesn’t come cheap, especially considering that the property is located on a tree-lined block off of Riverside Drive. The asking price is $12.995 million.
There are many floors to keep track of with this property. The first one, the cellar, is complete with a large rec space, a wood wine cellar, laundry room, bathroom, storage and mechanicals. Go up one level (on your elevator, of course) to the garden floor, which holds the kitchen. Here, you’ll find marble countertops, custom walnut cabinetry and a wine cooler. There’s also a guest bedroom suite that has its own kitchenette, a private bathroom, and a separate entrance from the street underneath the stoop. You have access to the outdoor garden from here.
Another level up is the striking parlor floor. Some of the interior features original to the townhouse are on display, including two working fireplaces, the french doors, double-hung windows and the carved staircase. There are also 12-foot ceilings and sunny southern exposures.
The dining room is located at the rear of the parlor level. It has, according to the listing, “a custom wet bar finished with a mosaic marble backsplash and Sub-Zero refrigerator.”
The upper floors have most of the bedrooms–there are seven in total–as well as fancy bathrooms, rec space, walk-in closets and outdoor terraces. The master bedroom, pictured above, has its own gas fireplace, a juliet balcony, and a luxurious bathroom with towel warming racks. What a view from the tub!
The outdoor space is expansive, just like the rest of the home. This balcony is located off the dining room—we like the huge windows carved out of the rear facade that overlook the backyard. The patio in particular overlooks the private lower garden and surrounding townhouse gardens. There’s also a roof deck, and four terraces throughout the home. So what do you say… it is all enough space for you?
