Pre-war apartments with their high ceilings and gracious proportions rarely come in condo form, so this 3,200-square-foot condominium residence at The Olcott at 27 West 72nd Street is a find to start with. In addition to three bedrooms that convert to four bedrooms, the Upper West Side home, which is asking for $9,200,000, has plenty of indoor entertaining spaces. But the best thing about it might be the sprawling terrace that’s the size of a townhouse garden, all in a full-service building one block from Central Park.
Larger than many apartment building residents’ clubs, the apartment’s private terrace is accessible from multiple rooms. Think of it as a warm-weather extension of the home’s formal and intimate entertaining spaces.
Past a large gallery, the corner living room offers views of the neighborhood and Central Park. A formal dining room provides more opportunities to gaze at the surrounding greenery. Soundproof windows keep the Upper West Side outside.
The classic “uptown kitchen” is upscale and functional with stone countertops, custom millwork, a wall oven with a warming drawer, a SubZero wine refrigerator and a breakfast bar. An adjacent dining room opens onto the terrace. A comfortable and open boudoir could easily become a fourth bedroom.
In the master bedroom there is a spacious dressing room, two additional closets and an office area. The ensuite bathroom offers dual sinks, a walk-in shower and a Toto smart toilet. The icing on the cake, the parental suite opens onto the terrace.
Two secondary bedrooms share a bathroom. All have underfloor heating in bathrooms, windows, closets and treetop views.
The terrace is currently converted into a dining room and a separate relaxation area. The party-ready setup includes canopies, lights, and speakers. An irrigation system is in place to make maintaining your garden paradise a summer breeze.
Facilities at the Olcott include a gym, private dining room for residents, children’s playroom, cold room and large storage bin. And Central Park is less than a block away.[Listing details: 27 West 72nd Street #201 at CityRealty] [At Brown Harris Stevens by Lisa K. Lippman]
