Pre-war apartments with their high ceilings and gracious proportions rarely come in condo form, so this 3,200-square-foot condominium residence in The Olcott at 27 West 72nd Street is something of a find to start with. In addition to three-convertible-to-four bedrooms, the Upper West Side home, asking $9,200,000, has plenty of indoor entertaining space. But the best thing about it might be the sprawling terrace that’s the size of a townhouse garden–all in a full-service building on a Central Park block.
Bigger than many building residents’ clubs, the apartment’s private terrace is accessible from several rooms. Consider it a warm-weather extension of the home’s formal and intimate entertaining spaces.
Past a large gallery, the corner living room offers neighborhood and Central Park views. A formal dining area offers more opportunities to gaze at the surrounding greenery. Sound proof windows keep the Upper West Side, outside.
The classic “uptown kitchen” is high-end and high-functioning with stone worktops, custom millwork, a wall oven with a warming drawer, a SubZero wine fridge and a breakfast bar. An adjacent dining area opens onto the terrace. A cozy, open den could easily become a fourth bedroom.
In the primary bedroom suite are a spacious walk-in closet, two additional closets and an office nook. The en-suite bath offers double sinks, a walk-in shower and a Toto smart toilet. Best of all, the bedroom suite opens onto the terrace.
Two secondary bedrooms share a hall bathroom. All feature radiant heat flooring in bathrooms, windows, closets and tree-top views.
The terrace is currently set up as a dining area and a separate lounging area. The soiree-ready setup includes awnings, lights and speakers. An irrigation system is in place to make caring for your garden paradise a summer breeze.
Amenities at the Olcott include a gym, a private residents’ dining room, a children’s play room, cold storage and a large storage bin. And Central Park is less than a block away.
