Property Description

If you are in search of the perfect penthouse, look no further: This 950 square foot oasis with 970 square foot wrap terrace boasts four exposures, ceiling heights over 9 feet, a wood burning fireplace, and views from every room from sunrise to sunset.

Architect-owned and renovated, no expense was spared in the creation of this one-of-a-kind one bedroom apartment. Situated on top of a charming prewar condominium steps from Central Park, a formal foyer greets guests and is flanked by two deep closets. The residence opens into a loft-like space, offering up an open kitchen with eastern exposures and views of The Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, dining area, and a separate living room boasting north/south exposures and a wood burning fireplace. Tucked between the designer kitchen and living room is a picturesque windowed bathroom featuring custom tile and stonework, deep soaking tub, and a walk-in shower.

Hidden behind a pocket door is the entrance to the bedroom. Showcasing custom millwork throughout, every square inch of the built-in home office and bedroom is optimized for storage. The bedroom also features views onto your private wrap terrace as well as a sunny southern exposure with unobstructed views of the Upper West Side skyline towards midtown.

The ultimate feature of this unique home is the terrace: Spanning 970 square feet, the terrace, which features electric, plumbing, and indoor/outdoor speakers, wraps around the entire apartment and captures all four exposures. Configured for both privacy and entertaining, a lounge occupies the the east wing with views of Central Park. The west wing plays host to an outdoor dining setup with unobstructed views prime for taking in sunsets during golden hour. A true sanctuary within the heart of the Upper West Side, this space must be experienced in order to fully understand how special it is.

30 West 90th street is a rarity on the Upper West Side: An intimate 10-story prewar condominium built in 1927 with only 48 apartments located half a block from Central Park and minutes to some of the best restaurants along Columbus Avenue. Loaded with charm and quintessentially 'New York', this well-run building is pet friendly and features a live-in superintendent, video security, bike room, storage and common laundry.

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.
