About two years ago, this impeccable pad on Central Park West sold for $4.3 million. Today, after an extensive gut renovation, the apartment is back on the market asking $8.495 million—nearly twice its initial price. But that 50% increase includes a Workshop/APD redesign, complete with “museum quality finishes” and only the finest craftsmanship. The finished product evokes a sense of calm sophistication in a supreme duplex with partial views of the city and Central Park.

The main floor of this three-bedroom duplex has a den that can double as a bedroom, along with a kitchen and dining room. But the true standout feature is the 16 x 25-foot double-height living room with 20-foot ceilings, colossal floor-to-ceiling windows, and a wood-burning fireplace.

The second floor has the master suite, which includes a massive walk-in closet and a luxurious bath. There’s also a second bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a washer and dryer (which could get awkward if guests overstay their welcome).

2 West 67th Street is a prewar studio building across from the celebrated Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park. The co-op was completed in 1919 as one of several cooperatives a group of artists erected as live/work spaces. Architects Rich & Mathesius designed the building with select apartments that feature double-height studios for work on large sculptures or canvases. The artists’ initiative ended up being so successful, it attracted business owners and stockbrokers, causing its visionaries to alter that vision to a more money-centered focus once they saw its lucrative potential. The West Sixty-Seventh Street Artists’ Colony Historic District only has two grand “studio” buildings that actually face Central Park, making this white glove co-op an even more exquisite find.

Residents of the pet- and pied-à-terre-friendly building enjoy 24-hour doorman service, a concierge, porters, laundry facilities, and a bicycle room. Additional features in the pad include French oak floors throughout, custom millwork and Lutron shades in every room.
