Not only do buyers glom onto glam in an apartment and long for light, but the charm of original details as varied as dentil molding and pocket doors may well appeal to many of them.
Although such characteristics often can’t hold a candle to the allure of a particularly lovely Manhattan block, the aura of an enclave such as ones that come to mind near Washington Square Park, on Murray Hill or on the Upper West Side can trump an ordinary block’s charm in the opinion of many buyers.
The attached homes in those areas generally have rooms of small proportions and carry assorted other burdens. But so powerful is the draw of their scale and ambiance that many buyers are happy to accept any tradeoffs necessitated by coveted Old World features in such enclaves.
So few are the properties and so infrequently do dwellings in a mews come on the market that open houses for them tend to be jammed. That was the case recently for an open house on a rainy Sunday in what is known as Pomander Walk, which runs between 94th and 95th streets and West End Avenue and Broadway on the Upper West Side.
Passing through an iron gate below the stone arch there is like treading into the past and a garden of earthly delights. The sounds and grit of the city are left far behind. There are flowers everywhere – in window boxes, along the sides of the central path and in front of each little Tudor-style house, constructed in 1921.
Broker ethics restrict what I can say about the property, but there is little fault to be found with this particular duplex.
The first floor of the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath co-op, which seems to be approximately 25 feet wide, has been opened up to foster an uncommon sense of airiness. A wall of built-ins was added, the renovated kitchen with an inviting marble-topped center island includes two Sub-Zero refrigerators plus freezer under the countertops, and the newer floors gleam brightly.
Upstairs are the bedrooms and handsome full baths, neither en suite and one with a skylight, as well as wall-to-wall carpeting, Bosch washer and dryer, and French doors between the two smaller bedrooms, originally one.
With regard to the price, the only right price is, as always, what the market determines. The price of charm runs high, but this approximately 1,400-sf place certainly is within range of its reasonable $1.495 million with maintenance of $2,266 a month by the standards of our current market.
Unsurprisingly, the duplex went under contract in less than a month.
