393 West End Avenue Redefines City Living with Amenities Inspired by Private Clubs

On the corner of 79th Street and West End Avenue, a rare pre-war condominium conversion offers residents the perks of suburban homes intertwined with the pleasures of metropolitan living.

Situated within the landmark West End Collegiate Historic District — a quiet enclave that exudes the cinematic charm of iconic New York films such as When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail — 393 West End Avenue features a collection of upscale residences that merge old-world charm with contemporary comforts. Originally designed by architects Goldner & Goldner and constructed in 1927, the building features Collegiate Gothic architecture and original 1920s details that have been skillfully preserved by award-winning architecture and interior design firm, CetraRuddy.

393 West End Avenue’s restored limestone portal and contemporary bronze-and-glass marquee make a lasting impression at first sight. Exquisite antique bronze entry doors with one-of-a-kind lion medallions showcase the building’s 1920s heritage, while eye-catching plaster tassels harken back to the great opera houses of the era. Inside, a sculptural stone concierge desk anchors the attended lobby, where a timeless, contemporary painting by Esther Kläs juxtaposes its Art Deco-inspired surroundings.

Beyond the lobby, a series of private home-inspired amenities accommodates every stage of life. Spanning 4,000 square feet, these inviting spaces offer the exclusivity of a private social club just beyond residents’ front doors.

Ideal for private dining or hosting intimate gatherings, the Club Room features a plush nine-foot sofa, a fully equipped bar and a custom artisanal tile mosaic. The Great Room offers banquettes and private nooks for study or remote work, along with direct access to a serene landscaped courtyard ideal for al fresco entertaining, dining and relaxing.

The building’s state-of-the-art fitness center appeals to health and wellness enthusiasts. With top-of-the-line equipment and a dedicated movement studio, the fitness center offers everything needed to create a well-rounded training regimen.

Nearby, a lounge with a gaming station, modular sofas and movable seating offers flexibility for studying, gaming and hanging out. The enchanted forest-inspired Cottage Playroom with a connected secret garden is the perfect place for young ones to nurture their imagination.

With prices starting at $1.23 million, 393 West End Avenue’s residences range in size from one to four bedrooms and offer functional layouts that cater to individual preferences and needs. Larger residences span 1,695 to 4,230 square feet and feature generously scaled great rooms that flow seamlessly between entertaining areas.
