Property Description

Central Park West - Grand Duplex on the Park

Residence 3/4N at 88 Central Park West is perfectly situated at the corner of 69th Street in one of Central Park West's most desirable and sought-after prewar cooperatives, this grand and impressive four-bedroom, 3rd and 4th floor duplex with preserved architectural detailing offers amazing space and wonderful direct views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline through some of the largest windows on Central Park West.

An elegant gallery/foyer with generous 10' 9" high ceilings and arched doorways with original woodwork opens into a massive living room directly facing Central Park. The expansive windows afford a tree line view, filling the rooms with exceptional light throughout the day. The adjacent formal dining room is truly a sight to behold with its original octagonal plaster coffered ceilings and leaded glass windows. It also has handsome intricate original wainscoting and original hardware detailing as well as beautiful inlaid oak floors.

The downstairs west wing of the home includes the eat-in-kitchen with an east facing window with views of Central Park, a guest or staff bedroom, a library/media room and a butler's pantry. All of which can be redesigned to create a truly remarkable open space.

The staircase leads you to the upper private bedroom floor. The large corner master bedroom offers more Park and City views as well as abundant closet space, including an adjacent walk-in closet. A cedar closet is also located in the hallway. The bathrooms on this level are larger than any other bathroom footprint on Central Park West or Fifth Avenue. The additional two bedrooms are generous and enjoy soaring ceilings and large windows with oblique views of Central Park, as well as abundant closet space.

Designed with French and Italian influences by Schwartz and Gross in 1910, the Brentmore is an elegant boutique prewar cooperative with 28 homes. Terra-cotta window surrounds, a beige brick fa ade and a recessed courtyard give this building its distinct character on a prime stretch of Central Park West. Moments away from Lincoln Center, residents of this outstanding building enjoy the highest levels of privacy, service and security. Staff quarters are available for rent on the top floor of the building. Pets are welcome.

Central Park West | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Home to some of New York City’s most famous buildings like The Dakota, with its enchanting architecture, and the equally impressive San Remo just a couple streets away, Central Park West is one of the most eye-popping neighborhoods to live in. 

It is historically renowned for its blending of architecture and residential living. So much so, that it earned a listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It is thought to have some of the most diverse and beautiful skylines in all of New York and has drawn celebrity residents for decades

If world-class architecture isn’t enough for you, there are plenty of warm brownstones to be found as well. There is so much to do in Central Park West, the most obvious being in the name of the neighborhood itself. With Central Park running the length of one of its borders, there’s easy access to the park and all its wonders, running trails, row boats, and bridges. If you prefer the indoors, the American Museum of Natural History is at your service. 

There are few places in the world that can match Central Park West’s varied combination of urban and residential charm, elegance, and spirit.
