Building & Unit Features
Common Outdoor Space
Soaring 11 ½ foot ceilings, breakout views, and a sprawling 730 SF private roof deck make this charming prewar penthouse condo in one of the Upper West Side’s most desirable locations a rare opportunity.
The unit sits atop the boutique renaissance revival Museum 77 Condominium building, built in 1891 and aptly named after the Museum of Natural History around the corner.
The effect of the unit’s high ceilings, combined with the flood of natural light through its south-facing windows and the rustic charm of its exposed brick interiors is absolute magic upon entering. As if that wasn’t enough, a spiral staircase takes you up to the next attraction – a spacious private roof deck with sunny 360-degree city views that include the architecture of the building’s namesake museum. The rooftop patio is perfect for entertaining, relaxing, gardening, and really has room for all of the above.
This former one bedroom apartment, converted by a former owner to an open loft, presents a host of layout possibilities. The walls that once separated the bedroom can easily be put back in place, the kitchen moved out of its present location to create an open kitchen/living space, and a second bedroom added to the roof subject to review by your architect and city and condo board approval.
The Museum 77 Condominium is a well-maintained walk-up building with renovated hallways, a central laundry room, bike room, package delivery area, live-in super, and video security with an intercom that can be connected to your cell phone to provide access to the building remotely.
Pied-a-terres, subletting and guarantors are all permitted. Pets are welcome.
Today, this stunning prewar apartment lies at the heart of the neighborhood’s historic landmark district and affords the very best of Upper West Side living, including restaurants, cafes, shopping, transportation and Central Park, all at your fingertips.
