Huge 1-bedroom 1-bathroom penthouse sits atop a sought-after prewar doorman co-op on the Upper West Sideʼs best block. Profiled recently in The Wall Street Journal, this rare home is situated on a gorgeous tree-lined street adjacent to the American Museum of Natural History and is just steps to Central Park. 51 West 81st Street is convenient to all shopping, restaurants, and transportation.

Spectacular private outdoor space. Sunlight from 3 exposures. The best location.

A quiet master-suite with 3 east-facing windows, huge walk-in closet/dressing room, built-in speakers, and a wood-burning fireplace. Hardwood maple floors throughout the living room, bedroom, and bathroom.

The living room features 3 east-facing windows, a wood-burning place, built-in speakers, as well as custom-designed built-in bookshelves and radiator covers.

A full staircase leads you up to the open renovated kitchen equipped with new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The kitchen is open to the solarium dining/ living room and the stunning private outdoor roof deck. Open views of Central Park, the Rose Center, the surrounding AMNH park, and amazing city-scapes of downtown, the Upper East and Upper West Sides. The terrace is planted and has an automatic irrigation system plus a storage shed.

The solarium and kitchen spaces provide a wonderful perch from which to enjoy all the times of day and all the seasons of the year. Whether itʼs dining al-fresco, practicing yoga, reading a book, or just relaxing with friends, the private terrace offers an exquisite sanctuary youʼll never want to leave.

This co-op has very low maintenance charges. Pied-a-terres, pets, and subletting are allowed. There is a washer & dryer just outside this apartment which is shared with the other apartment on the floor. Up to 75% financing is permitted. There is a superb live-in superintendant and building staff.
