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.

A second bedroom has a working fireplace and views of the quiet street below.

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.
