22 West 88th Street, GARDEN - Upper West Side, New York
PRIVATE GARDEN & YOUR OWN WINE CELLAR!Move right into this stunningly renovated townhouse apartment with private garden in a well-maintained, turn-of-the-century brownstone just off of Central Park West! The Garden Apartment at 22 West 88th Street has just undergone a complete renovation appealing to a modern sensibility while incorporating some of the history and charm from its bygone days. Enter through your private entrance, to this 3-bedroom, 3-full bath triplex home with a thoughtfully designed use of the space, carefully chosen finishes, ample storage, efficient HVAC air conditioning and eco-friendly Runtal hydronic heating systems including lovely towel warmers in the bathrooms! The open kitchen features custom bamboo cabinetry, stainless steel appliances with Bosch dishwasher, Thermador oven, stovetop and refrigerator. The rustic, reclaimed wood breakfast bar is ideal for casual dining and also overlooks the dramatic, sunken dining room with 13' ceilings, a perfect setting for dinner parties with the striking NEMO Crown Major chandelier as a focal point and the backyard just a few steps away. The peaceful, private backyard was designed for year-round use, boasting a decadent hot tub ideal for unwinding after a long day in the cooler months, and a perfect retreat for al fresco dining and entertaining in the Spring and Summer! Off of the dining room, the grandly proportioned living room showcases the industrial charm of this home with exposed brick, stone walls, concrete floors with radiant heating and a new, cozy gas fireplace. A rarity in NYC living, you'll find a very large storage space, approximately 200 square feet located directly underneath the dining room. The second and third bedrooms are located on the garden level strategically placed at opposite ends of the home for privacy, while the expansive master suite occupies the upper parlor level with a spacious bedroom, enormous custom closet/dressing room, additional storage loft and spa-like master bath with steam shower. The original carved fireplace mantle with glazed terracotta tile and mirror were lovingly preserved in the master bedroom adding character and elegance to the well-crafted renovation. The bonus or "flex" room was designed as a wine cellar with natural light and would also function well as an office, library, or additional 4th bedroom or guest room. Throughout the home you'll appreciate the attention to detail from the hickory hardwood floors, reclaimed wood shelving, Bosch washer/dryer, and new bathrooms with granite vanities, custom tilework, and Japanese deep-soaking tub. Don't miss out on this special home just off of Central Park, in the heart of the Upper West Side moments away from all area amenities, yet ideally situated on a quiet Upper West Side block.
