You can get good value with this three-bedroom, two-bath apartment at 817 West End Ave., #9B, listed for $2,295,000. Consider this: The median price for three bedrooms on the Upper West Side is $3,497,000, according to StreetEasy. That’s a (relative) savings of more than a million dollars.

It’s listed as a "classic seven," which means it has seven rooms—not counting bathrooms—and includes staff quarters (or a room and bath that can also be used for an office). The prewar apartment also has high ceilings (nearly 10 feet) and hardwood floors.


The dining room and living room are each windowed and are side-by-side. Both face east over West End Avenue. The northern-most room has a decorative fireplace.


The west-facing windowed, eat-in kitchen has an adjacent pantry, which currently houses the refrigerator. An alternative floorplan shows how the spaces can be combined to create a larger dining area.

The staff room/office is located off the kitchen and has it’s own entrance. It also includes a washer/dryer.



The bedrooms have nice details like moldings and built-ins.


One downside to the condo is that all three bedrooms share a single bath, which is not shown in the photos. The alternative floorplan shows how you can create an en suite bath with the master bedroom, and convert the remaining space and hall closet into a second bath.


Building amenities include a doorman from 8 a.m.-midnight, a resident super, central laundry, private storage for rent, and bicycle storage. The lobby has recently been restored and renovated.

Monthly common charges are $1,367; monthly taxes are $875. There is a monthly assessment of $209.32 until December 2018.

The building is located at the corner of West 100th Street. Broadway and all its shops and restaurants is one block away. Riverside Park is a block and a half to the west. The nearest subway stop is the 1 train at 103rd Street, and if you don’t mind a slightly longer walk, you can also get the 1, 2, and 3 trains at 96th Street.
