While this Upper West Side co-op is just a few blocks from Central Park, the apartment at 136 West 70th Street comes with its own slice of green space. Asking $1,895,000, the two-bedroom home takes up three floors of a pre-war brownstone, with even more space found in the spacious landscaped backyard. The sunny south-facing garden measures 700 square feet and features lots of plantings and plenty of space to entertain.

The home successfully mixes its pre-war past with a modern twist, with exposed brick and 12-foot high ceilings complementing smart design. On the main level, find a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a modern kitchen with lots of cabinets and counter space. There’s also direct access to the yard from this level.

The windowed kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, and an island with wine storage. There is a pantry and a cozy dining nook that overlooks the garden.

The huge primary bedroom takes up the upper level of the home and has a custom-built wall of closets, a dressing room, and a wood-burning fireplace with a stunning mantle.

In addition to a powder room that has two sinks, there is a tranquil Japanese-style soaking tub with a cherry blossom design on the ceiling above it and a glass shower.

Downstairs on the lower level, the space, which has a half-bath, could easily transform into whatever the next owner desires, be it a home office, media room, or bedroom.

With fully grown plantings that thrive in the abundance of sunlight, the garden is truly an urban oasis. Surrounded by greenery, the deck provides ample space for cocktails, coffee, and conversation.

Found between Broadway and Columbus, the home is steps from the best of New York, from Central Park and Lincoln Center to the American Museum of Natural History and the New-York Historical Society.
