555 West End Avenue: One-of-a-Kind Residences on the Upper West Side


Nestled in the heart of the beloved Upper West Side, 555 West End Avenue offers 13 breathtaking, one-of-a-kind residences with unmatched architectural magnificence.

Originally built at the turn of the 20th century as a private school, 555 West End Avenue has been transformed into a collection of homes with the grace and functionality of classic Upper West Side residences paired with the volume desired in Downtown lofts. The condominium features no more than two residences per floor and the homes are spacious, warm and inviting, with grand entry foyers, walk-in pantries, eat-in-kitchens, and abundant natural light.

Each home has a unique layout, including sprawling flats, townhomes with private entrances on West End Avenue, and specialized residences born from quintessential spaces found in a historic private school. The Solarium Penthouse, a three-bedroom residence crafted out of the school’s former gymnasium, boasts a remarkable great room with a soaring barrel-vaulted ceiling that rises 20 feet, a massive skylight, and a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows that opens onto a private terrace. Additionally, the school’s former library has been transformed into a spectacular five-bedroom duplex residence with an open-plan great room and kitchen that stretches 42 feet in length and boasts towering windows and 18.5-foot-tall ceilings.

The interiors combine beautiful materials with modern conveniences in a refined palette, which creates consistency and tranquility. Expansive kitchens are adorned with solid white oak cabinetry handcrafted by Christopher Peacock, honed Pietra Cardosa stone floors, polished Arabescato marble slab countertops and backsplashes, and Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances. Hand-selected Calacatta Gold marble slabs, custom white oak vanities by Christopher Peacock, and Lefroy Brooks fixtures adorn the master bathrooms.

Residents of the boutique building will enjoy a curated selection of amenities that reflect the manner of classic Upper West Side residential buildings, including a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, stroller valet, residents’ lounge, recreation room, private individual storage rooms that come with each unit, and additional cold storage and bike storage.
