If you dream of brownstone beauties and ample green space, the Upper West Side is for you. This beloved neighborhood can be pricey, but we’ve found quite the steal in our Deal of the Week. For starters, 171 W. 73rd St. #5 boasts three levels of living! That’s quite a rarity at this price point. Plus, this Upper West Side triplex is also brilliantly located halfway between Central Park and Riverside Park.

The Price: $545,000

The median asking price for a home on the Upper West Side is $1.7 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is more than a million bucks less than average for the neighborhood!

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $109,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,153. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,824 and a maintenance fee of $1,329. By comparison, the median asking rent on the UWS is $3,560.

Why You’ll Love It…

The only thing cooler than a duplex is a triplex! And this Upper West Side triplex’s multilevel layout makes you feel like you’re living large. The entrance level features a full kitchen, two closets, and a dining room. The dining area could easily be used as a home office, too. And the kitchen is small but mighty, with full-size stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher. Marble countertops and exposed brick add plenty of character.

One flight up is a spacious living room, bathed in light from three generous, south-facing windows. A glass half-wall separates it from the first floor, which allows natural light to flow through. There’s a full wall of exposed brick here too, and it continues into the top-level bedroom. The bathroom is on this third level as well, and it is straight out of a spa. You’ll love the chic lighting and stall shower with glass doors. A third closet is located up here, too.

Finally, our Deal of the Week’s location smack in the middle of the Upper West Side can’t be beat. Two blocks to the west is Central Park; Riverside Park is two blocks to the east. The American Museum of Natural History is just a few blocks away, too, as are Upper West Side mainstays like the Beacon Theater and Playa Betty’s. And the 1, 2, and 3 trains are super-close.

… And Why You Might Not

Despite its cool layout, this Upper West Side triplex’s open layout technically makes it a studio. And it’s not huge, though the high ceilings and multiple levels make it feel more spacious. Sadly, it also seems to be a walkup. But regardless, for this location and price point, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal.
