Property Description

In likely the most desirable location of the entire Upper West Side, on the southwest corner of tree-lined West 75th Street and Columbus Avenue, you will find this exquisitely designed one bedroom home, by Anastasia Amelchakova of Studio PPark.

From the moment you enter, you're struck by the fresh modern and balanced aesthetic, which perfectly contrasts the historic prewar envelope which is the Del Monte. As the sun streams in from the east the reclaimed Walnut floors seduce you through the space, where Anastasia selectively and respectfully exhibits notes of exposed brick, a tip of the that to the building's prewar heritage. The meticulously renovated kitchen provides an open lofted experience and possesses gorgeously installed wood cabinetry and a Caesar Stone countertops. You enter the bedroom through an extra-large passageway, which can optionally be privately secluded by the beautiful oversized sliding door. The precision of this design allows for door to evenly split the wall of minimal bookshelves and cabinetry, so as not to be lost in either space. This home also includes a serene spa bathroom with elegantly displayed Teak wood and Ann Sacks Luxor Grey and White Lucian Glass tiles.

The exquisite Del Monte, which was converted to cooperative in 1985, was originally designed in 1892 as a 7 story Renaissance/Romanesque Revival Style building by architect Gilbert Schellinger. In recent years, the allure of the location coupled with the shareholders efforts to create and maintain the quintessential residence, a growing number of the homes (once subdivided) are being re-combined. The shareholders underwent a renovation of the window-lit hallways and the commodious lobby, staying quite true to its original design, including the Pre-war crown moldings and a restoration of the beautiful and original historic mosaic floor. It is an elevator building with video security, live-in super, porter, bike room and laundry room. There is also some additional storage; however, there is a small waiting list. This intimate building now consists of 50 units and is located in a vibrant neighborhood just a few blocks from Central Park, Riverside Park, Fairway, Citarella, Trader Joes, Zabars, The Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, the 1,2,3,B & C Subway Lines, cross-town busses, the Sunday Flea Market & Farmer's Market and all of this is along Columbus Avenues varied Shopping District with every boutique you could imagine. Pets, pied-a-terres and guarantors are all considered on a case by case basis.

One Bed in Upper West Side


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.
