Real Estate Showcase - The West Side


What makes this more than just a dazzling 3BR, 3bth co-op in an Emory Roth-designed building on 81st off Central Park West? Well, the current owner of this one happens to be the grandson of the man who built the edifice with Roth, and he has lived in this lovingly maintained apartment for his entire life. Oversized rooms with 9.5ft ceilings include an elegant family room, formal dining room and an enormous, light-filled eat-in kitchen with custom Corian countertops and SubZero fridge. Restored ceramic-tiled baths have all the trademark Roth touches, including his classic multiple shower heads. There are old world finishes such as French doors, original brass doorknobs and herringbone floors. Most rooms overlook the Museum of Natural History’s park and the Rose Planetarium, not to mention the annual Macy’s balloon blow-up on the eve of the Thanksgiving Day parade. This white-glove prewar building has a beautifully restored lobby fountain, children’s playroom and brand-new health club. $4.495 million.




In a word, gorgeous! The lucky buyer of this home will enjoy the good life inside the historic Hotel des Artistes at 67th and Central Park West. This ten-room duplex co-op has 4+ BRs, 3.5 bths, a formal dining room, a library, two offices…even a wine cellar and tasting room. An interior balcony dramatically overlooks the living room, where ceilings soar to 22 feet. Many rooms have leaded stained-glass windows, and there is custom lighting throughout. The kitchen has soapstone countertops and appliances from La Cornue, SubZero and Miele. Marble-tiled baths have heated towel rails; one contains a claw-legged tub and another has an oversized soaking tub. Incredible built-ins include custom-fitted closets as well as armoires. Building amenities include a fitness center, heated pool, squash court and a lovely rooftop terrace. But the pièce de résistance may well be the in-house discount (eat-in or room service) at the famed Café des Artistes. $10.9 million.

“From downtown to uptown, the West Side is home to some of Manhattan’s hottest and most happening areas — the Financial District, the Chelsea waterfront, the Meatpacking District, Clinton and the Upper West Side,” says Michael Shvo, president of Shvo Marketing. “These neighborhoods are just steps away from great shops, gorgeous parks, chic restaurants and convenient subway stops. Homeowners on the West Side are getting the best of what the city offers – a high-end, full-service lifestyle in some of the coolest parts of town.”
