This 2,500-square-foot four-bedroom offers the kind of expansiveness rarely seen in NYC rentals: Built in the 1920s, the apartment oozes prewar glamour, not only in its size but also in its layout and style. You'll find a grand entrance foyer, elegant millwork, columns, and high ceilings, as well as impressive views thanks to a high perch in the property.

You'll also pay handsomely for all that room: the Upper West Side unit is listed for $17,500 per month by Citi Habitats

The flooring reminds us of something you might see in a Gatsby-era mansion, with striking black-and-white tile in the dramatic foyer and herringbone wood in the spacious living room. Corinthian columns, a fireplace, and wainscoting add to the elegance. 

The kitchen is built for serious chefs who like to entertain: Take a look at the plentiful storage and cooking space. Stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, make it easy to prep, and you'll do so in style, thanks to tile inlays on the floor, blond wood cabinetry, and marble countertops. 

You'll find three large bedrooms in the apartment, as well as a fourth, smaller maid's room that might make for a guest room, office, or nursery. The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet and en-suite bath decked out in marble tile; the other rooms also include sizable closets, and there are three additional full baths.

The floorplan reveals a large library and an in-unit washer and dryer, and the building offers doorman and concierge service. Pets are welcome, too—there will be plenty of room for them to run around here.
