The many wood details include custom cabinetry and a hand-carved fireplace
Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.
This one-bedroom apartment on West 86th Street is rocking some nice mahogany detailing. The living room is anchored by a hand-carved mahogany fireplace, while new oak flooring has been inlayed with a custom-milled, mahogany border. Moldings and ceiling beams top off the prewar features of this apartment; otherwise we wouldn’t say it’s dripping with historic details.
There’s a corner kitchen with its own custom cabinetry (mahogany, of course) that covers up the dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The bathroom, too, has custom storage and a medicine cabinet made with—yep, you guessed it—mahogany. Alas, there are no mahogany details in the bedroom, which benefits most from its high, beamed ceilings, but there is a walk-in closet.
The cooperative has its own impressive details: 257 West 86th Street was designed in 1910 as a grand Italian Renaissance-palazzo apartment house with an imposing colonnaded entrance. Today it comes with a full-time doorman, planted roof deck, laundry, and storage for residents and bicycles.
