Property description

Barefoot in the park

The Upper West Side is the home of New York’s intelligentsia, where professors and writers frequent bookstores by day and trade their elbow patches for formalwear for the symphony at Lincoln Center at night. But the heart of the Upper West Side is Central Park, where the city goes to play, picnic, and listen to Shakespearean soliloquies in summer. At once urban and tranquil, this two bedroom apartment offers easy access to the green expanse.

Picture perfect

Your hosts chose their home for the light that pours in by day. Her photographs, which reflect fragments of the city, accent the clean lines of the modernist space, which offers a Bauhaus minimalism enlivened with imaginative flashes of colour.

Head space

Begin the day with a coffee sipped on the balcony, which lies beyond the living area. This master bedroom double as a study, the bookshelves filled with photography books and classic novels form a windowed alcove. And a desk completes the perfect nook for jotting down ideas after a walk around the Central Park reservoir – Jackie O’s daily pastime, followed, for her, by a lunch of oysters and champagne.

The second bedroom is a cleverly secluded nest with a soft rug and subway-inspired art. During the day, the open-plan living room floods with light let in by generous windows. Two cushy sofas are the ideal landing pad for kicking off your sandals and settling in for a novel after wandering the boutiques of the Upper West Side. Prepare a light supper in the sleek refurbished kitchen or uncork a bottle of wine as you ready yourself for a performance of Swan Lake.

Bagels and Bookshops

The avenues of the Upper West Side are a mecca for indie shops, wine bars and jazz music. Eco-tours are an easy way to explore the gardens of Central Park, and the Whitney, Guggenheim and Metropolitan museums are only a walk across its meadows. When the Ramble goes dark or a rainy day impedes outdoor fun, the Met Opera, the New York City Ballet, the Museum of Natural History and a bagel and lox from Zabar’s are within easy reach.

Location

Upper West Siders adore their neighborhood - so much so that they try to leave its charming, tree-lined streets as little as possible. It's quite easy for them not to, as every quintessentially New York establishment worth visiting has seemingly set up shop in this neighborhood, from Danny Meyer’s popular burger joint Shake Shack to cult-status cupcake haven Magnolia Bakery.

Spend some time in this halycon dream and you’ll soon understand the irresistible draw, too. Its proximity to Central Park make picnics underneath cerulean skies and runs through the reservoir beloved by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis a part of daily life.

Bucolic streets with impeccably preserved rowhouses ranging in style from Italianate to Queen Anne give one the sense of being away from the city despite being in the thick of it. With Lincoln Center nearby, cultural pursuits come easy, whether it’s the opera, the ballet or a night of jazz that makes your soul sing.

While the neighborhood has its fair share of Michelin-starred restaurants, there’s no shortage of cosy brunch spots serving up comfort food to the neighbourhood's young and successful inhabitants, who more often than not come pushing thousand-dollar strollers or toting organic yoga mats.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too. Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities. Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
