If you’re looking for classic Upper West Side living, steps from Central Park, this 3,200-square-foot, four-bedroom co-op is as good as it gets. For $4,750,000, the three-floor home in a unique co-op at 31 West 93rd Street offers townhouse living–including lots of private outdoor space–as well as common space, staff, and elevator access to the top floors of this charming New York City residence. Legend has it that both Jackie Robinson and Betty Friedan lived in the building.

With 3,200 square feet of living space on three floors, you’re lucky enough to be living in a Manhattan townhouse. This Upper West Side collection of co-ops even received a Civic Architecture and Urban Design award for its private homes with common spaces and amenities. The spacious home contains four bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with a 300-square-foot private patio and additional balcony.

Enter on the first floor for a beautifully-designed modern-yet-classic kitchen that opens onto a large patio. A highlight of this picture-perfect custom kitchen is a wood-burning fireplace. The best tools for serious chefs are in evidence, including a Thermador oven, Viking cooktop, SubZero refrigerator, Sharp convection oven, and Bosch dishwasher. There’s also a powder room on this floor.

On the home’s middle floor is a living room that’s 100 percent New York in its sophisticated classic modern style, with ceilings of nearly 11 feet, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, French doors and a walk-in butler’s pantry. The building’s elevator accesses the middle and upper floors–a rare find in townhouse living.

A bedroom/den gets lots of sunlight from a southern exposure and boasts built-in storage in a charming, work-from-home-ready office framed by an exposed brick wall. There’s a full bath on this floor as well.

On the upper floor are three spacious bedrooms. The primary bedroom has another wood-burning fireplace, an en-suite bath, and a walk-in closet. There’s an additional bath on this level as well as a laundry room and a linen closet.

The home’s private outdoor space opens onto a 4,000-square-foot common garden with tables and seating, a basketball hoop, and play areas. The building also offers a gym, storage room, laundry room, bike room, and a kids’ indoor play area with a ping pong and pool table. The pet-friendly building has an on-site super and additional evening staff, all less than half a block from Central Park.
