From the street it looks like your common Central Park West Queen Anne/Neo-Grec brownstone. But inside, this 3,700 sq ft home was restyled/renovated into a Scandinavian modern two family beauty. The 4 bedroom/3 bath triplex as well as the 1 bedroom/1 bath floor thru apartment have crisp custom millwork of Scandinavian raised panel elm creating a distinct modern European design. The renovation retained the high ceilings and added angular openings between rooms to allow floor-thru sunlight throughout. There are several fireplaces in the house, each with distinctive mantelpieces designed of wood and slate. The front and rear gardens are lush and populated by birch and fruit trees attracting a large variety of avian visitors. Sharing one of the UWS's best kept secrets, all the adjoining rear gardens of all the houses on West 83rd and West 84th from CPW to Columbus have almost no intruding building extensions. As a result, all these houses share an open light and air vista most similar to the private mews found Downtown.
Garden Floor--Through the stone pillars and planted front garden enter the first floor of the triplex under the stoop. This floor has a large cook's Kitchen, ample cabinetry and storage space and comfortable dining for eight. The front Living Room can be an office or guest bedroom with bath. The South facing garden is flooded with sun and has several mature fruit trees and raised bed plantings.
Parlor Floor-The second (middle) floor of the triplex is reached by a neatly crafted interior stairway. One can also access the Parlor floor via the top of the stoop through the home's original oak storm doors and vestibule. The second and formal living room are here as well as front bedroom #1. This Living room is architecturally unique with its elaborate light stained custom millwork, a wall of South facing windows, a Juliet balcony overlooking the Garden, and the large wood and slate mantelpiece surrounding the fireplace.
Third Floor-Another interior staircase takes you to the top floor of the triplex. Bedrooms #2 and #3 share a hall bath and the main bedroom enjoys a private bath. The main bedroom (#4) also has a Juliet balcony overlooking the Garden and large wood and slate mantelpiece surrounding the fireplace.
Fourth Floor-Apartment #2 is a nearly 1000 sq ft one bedroom floor-thru apartment with fabulous light, skyline views, one bath, fireplace.
Cellar- The cellar has a laundry, enormous storage and a gas fired central heating system.
This is an excellent house value on a superb Park block.
