149 West 87th Street is a classic townhouse designed by the architect Increase M. Grenell in Neo-Grec and Renaissance Revival styles in 1887. This 4-unit, 4,000 s.f. home features a beautiful owner's duplex, three income producing rental units, high ceilings, abundant light and air, and original details.

The renovated owner's duplex consists of three bedrooms (the one on the first floor is now used as an office), a south-facing living room with (non-working) fireplace on the second floor, an unusually large kitchen (9' x 32') with side-by-side washer and dryer on the first floor, and two bathrooms, as well as a quiet, planted backyard, one step out of the kitchen, ideal for grilling all year round and for entertaining. The 48'-deep basement is private to the owner's unit, with three clean rooms used for utilities, bikes, storage, and workspace. The third floor is comprised of two sizable and well-maintained studio apartments, the rear of which contains the sunny, landscaped, over 30'-deep terrace overlooking beautiful townhouse gardens. Ceiling heights on this floor are 11'-high, creating bright and airy space in each of the studio apartments.

Ideal for entertaining or lounging indoors and out, an elaborate wet bar with wine fridge sits opposite a pair of regal French doors which lead to a sprawling terrace outside.

As if the property's current configuration didn't provide opportunity enough, one can also incorporate the lower two levels into the above existing residential space to create a fully residential four-floor townhouse, with the ability to tap into an additional 3,600 SF of unused FAR, and add an elevator.
