Prime UWS Historic Brownstone

Presenting a prized opportunity on Manhattan’s coveted Upper West Side. Here sits a lovely, landmarked brownstone built circa 1890 in the Romanesque Revival style by architect Joseph H. Taft. It’s located on West 84th street, one in a row of nine brownstones located within the Riverside-West End Historic District. It is the first time this house has been on the market in more than 50 years. It’s replete with original details and graced with high ceilings (10-11’), a private deck and a South facing garden.

Currently configured as two separate duplex apartments. 342 West 84th Street is 18’ wide and boasts 4 stories of gracious interiors plus a cellar. Cellar ceiling height is 7’8” and contains mechanicals and storage.

They are both currently rented at excellent market rents. The garden duplex can be delivered vacant at the end of June 2022 and the upper duplex, end of June 2023.

Garden Duplex:
Enter the private garden apartment via an entrance under the stoop. The garden floor is comprised of two bedrooms and a small office. Walk out of your office onto the private deck. From the deck there is a set of stairs which leads to your approximate 590 sf South facing garden. In addition, this floor has two full bathrooms, hardwood floors, decorative fireplace, and many closets.

A straight set of stairs leads to the parlor floor of the Garden Duplex. The parlor floor has many original details with 11’ ceilings, two decorative fireplaces, windowed kitchen and grand pocket doors separating the large living room from the graciously proportioned dining room.

Upper Duplex:
The upper apartment has a private entrance from the main stoop of the house. The third floor of this house has 10’ ceilings with beautifully proportioned rooms, consisting of the living room, windowed kitchen with pass through opening to a large stately dining room. Both living and dining rooms have decorative fireplaces.

The 4th floor consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, office, and laundry.

The possibilities are endless. Bring your architect, designer, and vision to create the home you’ve always dreamed of, melding classic character with contemporary luxury. Easily converted to a spectacular modern, custom single-family residence. Can also be a live-plus-income scenario, or a pure investment opportunity.
