34 West 76th Street #1

Don’t settle for just another place to live — obtain a piece of Hollywood history! First, dance your way up to the famous stoop of this brownstone cooperative where John Travolta sat in “Saturday Night Fever” (white suit optional). Then, make your way through on-level access to your fully renovated duplex apartment where the mother of Jerry Orbach of “Law and Order” and “Dirty Dancing” fame once lived.

Everywhere you look, classic style and brand new updates come together for the best of both worlds. Your main living space, sporting crown molding and authentic exposed brick wall with embedded decorative fireplace, is bathed in sunlight from from two oversized windows, both accented with period metalwork encasing full-width planters. The kitchen was completely redone for resale in stainless and stone finishes that are nothing less than gorgeous. Your brand new appliances — Summit refrigerator and GE range, microwave, and dishwasher — are surrounded by rich cabinetry above and below, a marble counter dressing an undermounted stainless sink, and a stunning backsplash that ties everything together with class.

As you make your way by the ample closet with Elfa shelving, newly installed radiator, and powerful, remote-controlled in-wall air conditioner, you approach your restored original spiral staircase, tastefully lit by the chandelier overhead and the additional window below. Heading downstairs, the lower level has endless possibilities for way more than sleeping. This expansive space with both sconce and in-ceiling lighting, delivers a renovated powder room, an independently lit double-wide closet (with Elfa shelving as with closet upstairs), an additional remote controlled air conditioner, and a door that provides direct access to the building’s washer and two dryers. To complete the experience, classic hardwood flooring on both levels has been rejuvenated with a deep palette to complement furnishings of any motif.

This turn-of-the-century building, constructed in 1900, resides on a pristine, tree-lined street in a Historic Landmark District that showcases classic architecture in every direction. The location is virtually unmatched on the Upper West Side: your apartment is just a stone’s throw from the American Museum of Natural History and Hayden Planetarium, The New York Historical Society, Central Park (CPW is just down the block) and a plethora of restaurants and shops on both Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues.

This duplex at 34 West 76th Street is available upon completion of the standard cooperative application process with the managing agent. Monthly maintenance is $1,108.06 and was 51% tax deductible as of the 2012 tax year.
