This exceptional home also includes an abundance of storage space. Located in a very exclusive and intimate 1906 cooperative in the heart of the Upper Westside, this three bedroom, two and one-half bath duplex residence in triple mint condition offers a calm and quiet respite from the vibrant city outside.

Steinam and is a rare surviving example of an artists' studio building incorporating living and working spaces. Pollard and Steinam pioneered and specialized in the design of the studio apartment house. They are the architects of many of the studio buildings on historic West 67th Street, including the Hotel Des Artistes. Amenities include: Resident Manager, 24 hour elevator operator, laundry, storage and bike rooms. There is a planted rooftop garden terrace for residents. Superbly located and situated on a wide thoroughfare in one of the most sought-after, vibrant and historic neighborhoods of the Upper Westside.
