On a quintessential Upper West Side block—just two blocks away from both Riverside and Central Parks—this one-bedroom duplex at 141 West 85th Street packs a lot of pre-war Manhattan charm. Exposed brick and wood beams, a wood-burning fireplace, a spiral staircase—check, check, and check. Best of all, the top-floor residence comes with a patch of private outdoor space in the form of a lovely landscaped terrace off the bedroom. It’s now on the market for $1,075,000 after selling in 2017 for $915,000.
