Open House Scorecard Shocker Edition: UWS family-sized apartments are hot

By Sara Alessi  | March 19, 2012 - 2:12PM

The UWS was apparently on the minds of NYC apartment shoppers this weekend. Half of the apartments in our Open House Scorecard — the 10 open house listings saved most often by StreetEasy apartment-browsers —  are located on the Upper West Side.

A two-bedroom co-op over on West 77th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam features new windows, new electrical and plumbing systems and new hardwood flooring is being offered for $1.75m. This apartment also features a maid’s room and a kitchen with plenty of storage and counter space. Other advertised perks include high-beamed ceilings, crown moldings and French doors, as well as a children’s playroom and private storage bins for residents.

On West End Avenue, a $1.15 million two-bedroom co-op (between West 90th and 91st) with ten-foot ceilings is available on the seventh floor. It boasts a renovated kitchen and formal dining room with original wood panels and a wood-beamed ceiling. There’s also a “maid’s room, comfortably used as a second bedroom or home office.”  The building offers a roof-deck with river views and a newly installed gym (on the roof!).

A few blocks north on West End, between 95th & 96th Streets, there’s a three-bedroom, two-bath co-op going for $1.4m. The fifth floor unit in a pre-war elevator building has a windowed kitchen with “yards of cabinet space,” and the building is conveniently located near the express subway and in reasonable schelpping distance from a Whole Foods.

Check out the rest of the Scorecard below for more Upper West Side units and some less (and even a couple more) expensive alternatives in other neighborhoods. For expert assistance, turn to BrickUnderground’s Agent Referral Service, which will hook you up with the right agent for free.
