A high floor classic 7 room home located at 15 West 81st Street with sunny views soaring over the Museum of Natural History, sweeping across Central Park and capturing a panoramic vision of the skyline all the way from Fifth avenue to Midtown and west. Everything in this home has been painstakingly restored and maintained from the original time of Emery Roth when floors, doors, moldings and hardware were built to last for hundreds of years and the proof of that sits in this residence.

Entering this residence you are met with the 27 foot gallery which stretches from the living room to the formal dining room. The living room itself measures 17 by 27 feet and offers unparalleled views of Central Park and the skyline behind it.

On the opposite end of the entrance gallery you will find the large formal dining room which measures approximately 14' by 18'. The large L shaped kitchen features an original casement window, original subway tiling and original St. Charles cabinetry. Restore this kitchen to its original splendor or bring your designer and create your dream eat-in kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a maid's room or 4th bedroom, maid's bath, and laundry.

A separate bedroom wing offers a massive 13' by 24' master bedroom suite complete with a dressing room, separate closets and an en-suite bathroom with perfectly restored original Emery Roth tiling. The master bedroom offers the same sweeping southern views of central park and beyond. The large second bedroom measuring nearly 13 by 20 feet boasts the same stunning views and features its own perfectly restored en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom, with courtyard views, measures 12' by 17' with two entrances leaving flexibility to use it as a den, home office, or guest bedroom with yet another perfectly restored bath.

There are brand new windows and an endless amount of closet space and beautiful pre-war details including original herringbone floors, solid original wood doors and hardware, and beamed ceilings all of which are in perfect condition.

15 West 81st Street, the famed Emery Roth landmark building, is a long-established white-glove cooperative with a reputation for stellar service and financial stability. It is located on one of the most sought after blocks in Manhattan and boasts modern amenities such as a state of the art fitness center, playroom, and separate storage rooms for owners.
