Property Description


This lobby level 3 bedroom apartment with great bones and super high ceilings (approximately 11 feet) has been used as a professional doctors' (therapy) office for the past 30 years. Glorious original details are still existent in the majority of the apartment. To return 1E to its 1910 grandeur as a residential home will only require a simple restoration. Architect renderings of possible more creative renovations are available.

Original details include oak hardwood bordered parquet floors, beautiful decorative moldings and wood paneling, a gorgeous decorative fireplace, high ceilings and glass french doors.

The bedroom wing is completely intact with 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 full windowed baths. A long hallway separates the sleeping area from the entertaining space which can be returned to the original layout by opening two foyer walls and restoring the glass french doors between foyer and living room, and foyer and wood paneled formal dining room. (Photos available upon request of similar restored units in building).

The original windowed kitchen was converted into a kitchenette and powder room, but can easily be restored back to a fully functional kitchen.

490 WEA is a sought after turn of the century (Circa 1910) cooperative in great financial condition, fully staffed with 24 hour doorman/concierge and live-in superintendent. Laundry, gym and storage (short waiting list). The location is ideal with close proximity to bus and subway lines and near museums, parks, and a myriad of fine dining and casual restaurants and shopping establishments.

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, this apartment has flexible times to show. Please call, text, or email to set up your private viewing.

And 490 WEA is VERY Pet Friendly!

Three Beds 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.
