    122 West 88th Street

    Nestled on the picturesque Upper West Side block between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues, 122 West 88th Street is a beautiful three-story Townhouse with an additional full garden floor designed by Architect Samuel B. Reed in 1886.

    Enter through the double front doors to the entry hallway and the open layout of the Parlour floor featuring a spacious Living Room with fireplace, a generous dining area, 10ft 2in ceilings and a large, windowed kitchen. In the Living Room, the south-facing windows provide abundant light throughout the day. There is a Juliet balcony, and through the French doors at the rear of Living Room is the quiet garden study with access to a bright terrace overlooking the garden area below. The kitchen is equipped with a Viking Professional 4-burner gas stove, oven, microwave and range hood, Jenn-Air side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and Bosch Dishwasher. The Dining area has ample space for large gatherings, and there are hardwood floors and original details all through the Townhouse.

    The primary bedroom is at the top of the stairs on the second floor. The south-facing balcony affords space for a private seating area with an elevated view of the garden. There are 3 generous closets and a large fireplace as well as a bathroom designed for two with 2 sinks and a massive shower. Midway down the hall is a full-sized linen closet next to a sizeable laundry room with generous utility sink and a convenient wall of cabinets. The second bedroom at the front of the building has 2 large windows, its own bathroom, and a fireplace with molded design details.

    Up the stairs alongside the exposed brick wall and illuminated by the overhead skylight, the third floor boasts two additional bedrooms. The front bedroom showcases an exceptional arched window that, while newly updated and blissfully quiet, harkens back to this historic building’s beginnings. The other bedroom, which faces south, has more exposed brick along with built-in bookcases and drawers. Between the 2 bedrooms there is a modern Jack & Jill bathroom with both shower and bathtub.

    The Garden floor has a private entrance under the stoop. In the front is a large room with floor to ceiling built-in bookcases and a large walk-in storage closet, perfect as a library or media room. There are many closets and a central bathroom off the hallway leading to the rear bedroom, as well as a cozy alcove that offers easy access to the ground floor garden.

    The outside garden space has herringbone brick, mature plantings, sweeping stairs to access the balcony above and southern light and views.

    122 West 88th Street is part of the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. Built in the Romanesque Revival with Renaissance and Flemish Revival elements, this Townhouse retains many original features while seamlessly integrating modern updates and comforts.
