48 West 86th St, 2 - Upper West Side, New York
Two bedroom, two and a half bathroom, parlor floor of a 25 ft. wide Beaux Arts mansion, less than half a block from Central Park. With 12 ft. high ceilings and two fireplaces, this floor thru home is accessed through a private key locked elevator.

The eat in kitchen features custom cherry cabinets, Italian granite countertops, Sub Zero fridge and wine cooler, Wolfe gas stove top and oven, Miele dishwasher, and Sharp microwave. The large great room has two large windows that face out on to a tree-lined street and allow sunlight to pour in. This room also boasts a crystal chandelier and four sconces, a beautiful decorative fireplace and a cherry hardwood floor laid in herringbone pattern. Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and large south facing windows which look out over a landscaped garden offering complete serenity. One bedroom has a working wood burning fireplace. Storage abounds with built-in bookshelves, well-fitted closets, upper storage cupboards, and an attic created above the hallway. There is an in-unit washer and dryer, central AC, and a large separate storage room. 48 West 86th was built in 1905 and contains five floor-thru units. Nearly all of the owners have been part of this well maintained, park block building for over twenty years. Very rarely does a home such as this become available. You must see this property to truly capture the opportunity this special property represents.
