Property Description for 337 West 87th Street

Once owned by a 19th and 20th century literary savant that counted Twain, Kipling and Roosevelt among his group of friends (and, perhaps, as guests within his home), 337 West 87th is a 6-story, single-family row house that has been impeccably restored to meet the demands of modern day living. The mansion-like home boasts 8,000 SF of interior space, 1,700 SF of outdoor space, 6 bedrooms (convertible to 7), 8.5 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, an elevator that services each floor, and a host of sophisticated touches that include things like a hand-crafted wine cellar and wiring for total smart home technology.

The primary living area is spread across the home’s Garden and Parlor Floors. The Garden Floor features a guest bedroom suite (complete with a private bathroom, an attached kitchenette, and a separate entrance), a powder room, a masterfully-finished kitchen, a breakfast nook with a vertiginous, double-height ceiling, and access to a manicured garden space lined with bluestone pavers and wrapped in a teak wood fence. The kitchen is fitted with Bianco Statuario marble countertops and backsplash, custom walnut cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances (including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, a 36-inch Wolf stove with a dual fuel range, a double Miele oven, and Dornbracht fixtures), and a massive, eat-in island. On the Parlor Floor sit the home’s spacious living and dining rooms, a powder room lined with Calcatta marble and tastes of the ornately-carved woodwork that once ran throughout the home. While the living and dining rooms each have their own fireplaces, the dining room also has a custom wet bar, access to a small balcony that overlooks the garden, and a unique, overhanging view of the breakfast nook that sits one level below.

The Third Floor is given entirely to a luxurious master suite, which contains a pair of walk-in closets, a palatial master bedroom with its own sitting room and attached half-bath, and a lavish master bathroom. The master bathroom features grey marble floors and walls, a cavernous walk-in shower with dual rain showerheads, and a dreamy, free-standing bathtub set against a bay window and flanked by separate his and hers vanities. The Fourth Floor is comprised of a pair of split-wing bedrooms (each with their own ensuite bathrooms and private closets and the north-facing room with access to a private terrace) while the Fifth Floor holds a bedroom and a space that functions as a second living room/entertainment room but, being served by its own full bathroom, can easily become an additional bedroom. The Sixth Floor of the home consists of a single bedroom with its own wet bar, a full bathroom, and a brace of large terraces, one facing north and the other facing south. Above that sits an immaculate roof deck upon which views of the surrounding buildings fill the sky.

Completing the home is a fully finished Cellar Floor with an open recreation space (currently set up as a gym/playroom), a hand-made wine room crafted from reclaimed wood, a laundry room, a spa-like bathroom with a steam shower, extra storage space, and a mechanicals room.

Less than a block away from Riverside Park, just over 3 blocks from Central Park, and graced with all the amenities of a modern lifestyle, this magnificent home remains what it was when its foundation was first laid down, a dream.

Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
