The pre-war details and gracious proportions at this three-bedroom co-op at 210 West 90th Street are perfectly complemented by the flawless renovation it received at the hands of Gramercy Design. Built in 1915, the Astor Court co-op is an Upper West Side icon, and this thoroughly livable apartment, asking $4,650,000, adds 21st-century comfort to its old New York charm. Adding even more to its appeal, the home’s furnishings can be included in the sale for a higher price.

The apartment shares a vestibule with only one other unit. Enter through a gracious foyer and bookshelf-lined gallery that introduces the apartment’s refined yet joyful use of color. Off the hall, find the living and dining rooms.

An elegant south-facing living room looks out over the building’s private gardens. Framing the room’s classic proportions are detailed wood paneling, moldings, and a wood-burning fireplace. Above is an ornate plaster ceiling medallion and a modern chandelier by Apparatus.

Across the hall, the dining room is currently being used as a cozy den, packed with personality. Wallcovering by Studio Zen features dried water leaves applied to paper in a chevron pattern. The living/dining space has access to a powder room brought to life by Koi wallpaper from Voutsa,

The unique separate kitchen is a magnetic gathering spot anchored by Calacatta Caldia honed marble countertops, custom cabinets with pewter hardware and reeded glass, and a burgundy Lacanche stove with a custom zinc-clad hood. The sprawling kitchen does double duty as a dining room, with enough space for an oversized table. Off the kitchen is a full-sized laundry room/pantry.

On one side of the home are its private sleeping quarters. The quiet primary suite features a custom walk-in closet lined in shelving made of stained white oak and an en-suite bath that’s a study in clean-lined luxury.

The two remaining bedrooms are spacious and calm, with an additional full bath as an en-suite to the larger of the two. The smaller chamber is currently being used as a colorful sitting room/den.

Built by Vincent Astor in 1915 and designed by Charles Platt, the pet-friendly building offers a live-in resident manager and a 24-hour door attendant. Additional amenities include a rooftop terrace, a children’s playroom, bike storage, a laundry room, a garage, and a private central garden.
