According to the listing, this brownstone duplex at 316 West 90th Street on the Upper West Side is “a Tuscan villa in the warmer months and a romantic Swiss chalet in the winter.” That sounds like a pretty tall order for a two-bedroom co-op, even for $1.8 million. But upon closer inspection, three toasty fireplaces definitely have fall and winter dialed in, and two decidedly Tuscan villa-esque decks await once al fresco season arrives.

Beginning on the third floor of a beautifully-maintained 1910 brownstone on a tree-lined street just off Riverside Park those three fireplaces join an expansive private roof deck, a smaller deck off the living room, French doors and a skylight for a warm and sunny space no matter what the season.

Upstairs, a cozy master bedroom suite has pitched ceilings, and a fireplace adds old-world charm. Double French doors access that newly-decked private rooftop paradise, complete with trellis, planters and a privacy fence.

The renovated open kitchen and fireside dining area await family dinners and Thanksgiving feasts. Closets and storage haven’t been left out, and there’s even a laundry room–something you probably won’t find in a vacation villa.

And you’re near Manhattan’s best parks and plenty of public transportation options should you need to feel like you’re actually in New York City again.
