This $4.75M Duplex Is the Only Unit Currently for Sale in an Artful UWS Co-Op
With spring just around the corner, New Yorkers will see the leaves of Central Park bloom soon. Warm weather is coming, aka the time when a walk or picnic in the city’s most iconic park sounds oh-so-appealing. Such experiences are easy to live out daily when you own at The Atelier, a storied co-op on the Upper West Side. Someone can now move into a $4.75 million duplex there. This two-level exposition of early 20th-century elegance is the only unit for sale in the building, sitting at the center of the Artists Historic District.
Built in 1903—around the same time as the construction of the Flatiron Building and Times Square—the building designed by Simonson, Pollard and Steinam melds gothic and neo-renaissance architecture. And, this specific unit’s interior splendor impresses as well. Upon entrance, the main attraction is the double-height living space. Anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and a massive window capturing views of the Upper West Side, the space feels both intimate and grand. A magnificent 47-feet of built in cabinets and bookshelves, along with a library ladder, make this the spot for bookworms or collectors.
A curved staircase whisks you up to the mezzanine, leading to the primary suite with a spa-like bathroom fitted with a soaking tub and gorgeous marble. An office and second bedroom are also on this floor, while one more bedroom is tucked on its own downstairs.
Created over 100 years ago for artists’ studios, the building still embraces exceptional natural light and scale. Original building features such as a cast-iron elevator and details in the main lobby space continue to add character. Plus, the proximity to the park will never go out of fashion, either.
