Perched atop a high floor in a well-run, coveted prewar building, this wonderfully charming, spacious one-bedroom home is a quintessential Upper West Side gem. As you enter through the gracious entrance foyer – featuring an oversized coat closet – and into the sizeable living space, you will be immediately struck by the incredible fluidity and generosity that this layout provides. Bright open views to the east – including a partial Central Park view – fill the living room and eat-in kitchen with an abundance of natural light. Pre-war details such as high-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, arched doorways, and original moldings, doors and doorknobs elevate the space. The large, windowed eat-in kitchen features plenty of counter space and storage, including a pantry to stow kitchen accoutrements. A hallway off the living room boasts another impressive closet and leads to the substantial master bedroom. The bedroom, which easily accommodates a king-sized bed and multiple pieces of furniture, is replete with two additional closets, and boasts unobstructed northern views, which gently filter in the morning light. The bathroom adds an additional south-facing window, a deep soaking tub, original tiles, and a timeless pedestal sink.
Built in 1928, this fantastic building has an incredibly helpful staff, including a full-time doorman, live-in super, and maintenance staff. There are two passenger elevators as well as a service elevator. The building also features storage, bike storage, and laundry. Washer/dryers are permitted with board approval, as are pets, pied-à-terres, and co-purchases, and subletting is now allowed for two out of five years after the first two years of residence. There is currently an assessment of $215.86 through 7/31/22 and the reasonable maintenance fee includes electric and gas.
All of this can be found in a perfect Upper West Side location, near some of the best shopping, dining, gourmet grocers and entertainment that Manhattan has to offer. Just moments from Central Park, and ideally situated between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues, this location has the additional benefit of close proximity to the crosstown bus and the B, C and 1 subway lines.
