A well-thought-out and executed combination of two Art Deco apartments has created a special house-like three-bedroom inside a New York City Co-op.
Everything is brand new! Complete gut renovation!
On the lower floor of the residence (4th floor of the building) are the kitchen, first bedroom, and a full common bathroom. The kitchen is fully appointed with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, stone backsplash, and a serve-through out to the large living room for ease of entertaining. The first bedroom is sized for all of your furniture and the first of two common access bathrooms in the apartment.
The upper floor (5th floor of the building) consists of two large bedrooms, a laundry room, and a second full bathroom. There is tremendous closet space in each bedroom, including a walk-in closet in the main bedroom. The laundry room has a full-size washer and dryer with additional granite topped cabinets and wall storage space.
The apartment faces north & south, with natural light in all the rooms.
Often the biggest challenge in creating a duplex apartment is the stairway to transition from one floor to the next. This challenge has been well met with a straight, easily-transversed staircase. In case there is heavy lifting involved - the elevator is easily accessible on either level.
The central shopping area of Hudson Heights is just up the stairs with Cafe Buunnii for Ethiopian-style coffee and food, Dutch Baby Bakery with its comfort food menu, Frank's Market for all grocery needs, the number 1 rated Fresco's Pizza for awesome pizza, Refried Beans for Mexican food, the Tampopo Kitchen, and the long-running Kismat for Indian cuisine. Banking, pharmacy & dry cleaning services are all readily available - what else do you need?
100 Bennett is an Art Deco building built in 1939, with a classically-appointed lobby, two elevators, a bike room, a live-in Super, and a childrens play area that was recently upgraded. Although no one can say that Hudson Heights is a hidden" gem anymore, the area is still the best example of the word neighborhood on the island of Manhattan. The street layout essentially creates one huge cul-de-sac that quiets the area by calming the traffic and keeping easy access to the A-train running below the neighborhood or taking a short walk to the 1 train and bus lines that head down the East or West sides. There are numerous restaurants and lots of shops close by for the daily sundries. Lastly - you have the river views and fields of Fort Tryon Park, the art of The Metropolitans Cloisters Museum, and there is easy access to the Hudson River Greenway for cycling and running enthusiasts.
