Pretty in Pink: A Manhattan Brownstone Triplex Brimming with Rosy Hues Looks for $30,000/Month
Anyone would be tickled pink stepping into this brownstone triplex on the Upper West Side. Varying in hue, the rosy color is found all over the apartment, from the walls to the furniture to the unique kitchen countertops. A fun home-for-now, the residence is available to rent for $30,000/month.
Classic on the outside and playful on the inside, the unit was designed by Keith Baltimore of the award-winning design firm Baltimore Design Center. Dating back to 1899, the structure has great bones with tall ceilings and original stained glass. Still, it’s the whimsical decor that gives this 3,000-square-foot triplex the lighthearted soul it has today.
It encompasses the bottom floors of the building: The lowest level, the garden level, and the parlor level. The subterranean floor includes a bathroom and recreation room, but it’s the upper two floors where the pink-tastic flair flourishes. Lively designs dance from the garden level, which holds the home’s two bedrooms and en suites, to the staircase with magenta banisters guiding you to the main living spaces.
The parlor level is the centerpiece, photogenic from all angles and utterly Instagram-worthy. The light pink tone of the millwork and moldings contrasted against rich wood floors adds a sophisticated vibe to the otherwise eclectic living room. The kitchen is a dream with a Lacanche range and features a custom hood, top-of-the-line appliances, terrace space for al fresco dining, and of course, pink quartz countertops.
The spirit of this home feels like a sweet popsicle. And with summer on the way, living near Riverside Park and Central Park is definitely a sweet treat. Shane Boyle and Aaron Seawood of Triplemint, pictured here in the spaces, hold the ritzy rental listing.
