Enchanting Apartment Hits the Market in a Prestigious Manhattan Location

For those looking for a little New York magic, this abode’s views of the Museum of Natural History, Manhattan cityscape, and Central Park can’t be beat. The chic Upper West Side apartment has hit the market asking $6.4 million and is located on one of the most desired blocks in Manhattan.

The expansive views are just the beginning of this spacious abode, which includes a 27-foot gallery going from the living room all the way to the formal dining room. It doesn’t feel anything like a cramped New York apartment, especially in the master bedroom. The master is 13-by-24 feet, which includes a dressing room, his and hers closets, and a sumptuous bath. In total, the home offers three bedrooms and three-and-a-half-baths, so there is plenty of space for guests as well.

Built in the 1930s, everything at 15 West 81st Street has been restored, including features designed by Emery Roth, a distinguished New York City architect who gifted Manhattan with many iconic buildings such as this. The apartment contains prewar details like herringbone flooring, original wood doors, and beamed ceilings; yet has updates that fit today’s style. Shining with history, the unit’s location next to the well-preserved and ever-relevant Museum of Natural History is very fitting.

Not only is the apartment luxurious, but the building is, too. Amenities include a well-equipped fitness center, playroom for kids, and private storage units for owners. It is listed with Michael J. Franco of Compass.
