341 West 87th Street, 1F
New York, NY 10024
This is a meticulously curated gut renovation of the formal front parlor on the second floor of an elegant 1895 Renaissance Revival townhouse. Over a century ago, this is the room in which the owners, Margaret Stuyvesant Woodhouse, a descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, and her husband, would have entertained their callers.
As you enter, you will be struck by the bright south-facing apartment's ceiling height and elaborate crown molding. The herring-bone pattern oak floor is bordered with inlays of Peruvian walnut and maple. Ahead are a pair of classic French doors, flanked on both sides by double-hung windows, opening onto the American balcony. The wall to the right is nearly filled by a magnificent wood-burning fireplace and its original ornate mantelpiece. To the left is a wall of custom closets and storage. Its primary feature is a queen-size LGM Murphy bed which easily swivels to reveal a bookcase and table during the day.
Around to the right, down three shallow steps, is a galley kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances including an AGA Companion stove, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, quartz countertops, and ample storage. The well-laid-out bathroom has very good storage, a generous shower, and a heated towel bar. Above the kitchen and bathroom is a spacious loft, accessed by a Putnam library ladder.
341 West 87th Street is a well-managed, nine-unit co-op that is in top condition, having had major renovations and capital improvements in the last few years. The original wood-paneled walls, Carrara marble ground floor tile, and plush carpeting on the stairs and landings are pristine. Pieds-a-terre, small pets, and compact washer-dryers are allowed. Building amenities include a storage bin for each unit, bicycle racks, and a new full-size washer and dryer. There is a $330 monthly assessment until October 2026 to refurbish the reserve fund. Riverside Park is at the end of the block, and the 1 train is two blocks away.
