Original Details Battle Renovation in Upper West Side Houses

New, 31 comments

Imagine you have around $6,500,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 49 West 95th Street/ 263 West 93rd Street
Price: $6,495,000 $4,670,000

? 49 West 95th Street, half a block from Central Park, is a renovated four-story house with a limestone facade, a finished cellar, and a fenced-off back patio. The kitchen, in particular, is a highlight of the renovation, which features a fair amount of exposed brick.

? Closer to the river than the park, 263 West 93rd Street is un-renovated but $1.825 million cheaper. It also contains all kinds of ornate original details including wood trim, crown molding, stained glass, and decorative mantles. The kitchen looks very small on the floorplan, however, and is ominously not pictured, so at least some of those savings won't be saved for long.
