Welcome to Residence 8D, an elegant eight-room move-in ready home in the heart of the Upper West Side. The apartment has the most desirable elements of a prewar co-op, including gracious proportions, high ceilings, original moldings, and gorgeous hardwood floors, with the addition of modern conveniences like central air, in-ceiling lighting, new appliances, and in-unit vented washer and dryer. The flexible layout of the apartment can easily be suited for any lifestyle.
Off a semi-private elevator vestibule, the gracious entrance gallery leads to the nearly 20 foot-wide living room that faces south over double-wide 86th Street. The large formal dining room, which can also be configured into an informal secondary living room or den, is also located off the foyer allowing for easy entertaining.
There are two bedroom wings at opposite ends of the apartment, ideal for privacy and flexibility. Two front-facing bedrooms, including the corner primary, are flooded with southern light. The second of these two bedrooms could function as such or be incorporated into the primary for the ultimate bedroom suite, or opened up to create a ~30 foot-wide grand living room. A spacious bath with a window, new vanity, and soaking tub services these two rooms. Two additional king-size bedrooms, joined by a shared windowed bathroom with a tub, comprise the second private wing of the home.
The expansive windowed eat-in kitchen boasts a plethora of storage, a separate butler's pantry, and all new appliances, including a washer/dryer and induction range with a functional gas hookup. Two staff rooms off the kitchen have been combined to create a room that could easily serve as a fifth bedroom or home office. A full windowed bath with a new vanity and tub services this room and the kitchen.
Additional features of this timeless home include beautifully maintained original hardwood floors (including herringbone in the living and dining rooms), newly installed 3-zone central air conditioning, new recessed lighting, all new electric, newly replastered/skim coated/painted walls and ceilings, newly sanded and repainted original moldings, newly screened floors, and restored original doors and hardware throughout.
Built in 1914, 151 West 86th Street is a classic prewar cooperative building with a part-time doorman (7AM-12:45AM seven days a week), a live-in superintendent and handyman, a lovely planted rooftop garden, private storage, a central laundry room, and a bike room. Pets and 65% financing are permitted. The building is conveniently located near Central Park and the Upper West Side's best public and private schools, shopping, cultural attractions, and transportation.
