This grand "Artist's Studio" duplex is located in the heart of the Upper West Side in a circa 1909 architectural gem. An absolutely incredible space, it offers a purchaser an opportunity to recreate this dramatic home. A voluminous space, there are 3 bright exposures and a gracious layout, making this perfect for grand-scale entertaining or simply enjoying the comforts and privacy of a true home.

The soaring 20 foot ceilings in the corner living room boast a volume rarely found in apartment living. With its double height north facing windows,( originally designed for the many artists the building attracted,) theatrical interior balcony, rich wood flooring, magnificent wood burning fireplace, plus a west facing window over a landmark church, the 28 foot long living room is a show stopper. The large corner dining faces south and west affording it light all day. Also on the main floor is a den / 4th bedroom and a large eat-in kitchen, both rooms facing south with sun flooded. Completing the downstairs is a full windowed bathroom off the entry foyer.

THE UPSTAIRS: The balcony in the living room is from the upstairs landing which overlooks the double height living room. This overlook area could be converted into a small home office. In addition the upstairs has three south facing bedrooms with a hall windowed bath. There is the ability to add an additional master bath to create a true "bedroom" wing.

The building was constructed in the neo-Renaissance style in 1906-07 by George Mort Pollard and Joseph L. 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: 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. The subway is a half-block away and restaurants and shops abound
