This eight-story building at 314 West 100th Street on the Upper West Side was known as The Chateaux when it opened in 1910. Designed as a luxurious residence, there were only four apartments per floor–and each boasted a spacious floorplan typical of prewar co-ops at the time. The building went condo in 2007 but the floorplans and interior details remained. So while this $2.725 million unit is being sold as a condo, it has all the bones of the “spacious and rambling” apartment, as the listing calls it, first envisioned back in 1910.
Like in the typical prewar floorplan, an entrance foyer flows into a long gallery, which connects all seven rooms. Past two bedrooms, then a parlor, the hallway finally leads you to the living room, dining room, then kitchen.
The living spaces include a library, with its own decorative fireplace and views to the north over neighboring brownstones. Both the parlor and the dining room are connected to the library through two sets of French doors. Five large windows and parquet floors are found in all three of these rooms.
The kitchen has been renovated with lots of modern finishes: custom wood cabinetry, white marble counters, a stainless steel tile back splash, under-cabinet lighting and built-in wine storage. Still, the space boasts the apartment’s original oak butler’s pantry.
The two main bedrooms are each large enough for king-sized beds and include closet space and large windows facing west. A maid’s room was renovated into a third, smaller bedroom that still has an ensuite bathroom.
A roof deck was added to the building in 2015–a perk that comes with a fancy condo conversion! It includes a built-in gas grill, refrigerator, and sink.
Here’s a look at that impressive floorplan. Besides this wonderful interior, the building–which has its own historic details like wrought iron front doors, Juliet balconies and a marble lobby–has a nice location just a half block from Riverside Park.
