A superb five room residence at 105 West 72nd Street, one of the few pre-war condominiums located in the heart of the Upper West Side. Be one of the first to enjoy a brand new renovation as the current owner occupied the home as a pied a terre. A new primary residence owner is also eligible for a substantial real estate tax abatement.
Enter this gracious home and you are immediately met with old world charm. The historic details are accentuated by their perfect restoration coupled with a high-end modern renovation, making it an ideal place to call home. There are solid oak floors with inlay throughout the apartment and a herringbone design in the main living areas.
The extraordinary entrance gallery leads to an expansive combined living and dining room which creates an amazing entertaining space. The oversized windows, moldings and restored decorative fireplace are the perfect setting for quiet evenings at home or any type of social gathering. The apartment also boasts sunny southern exposures overlooking wide 72nd street.
The original, restored pocket doors divide the bedrooms from the main living area to offer privacy. When the doors are open this detail provides a loft-like feeling and when closed you immediately get the sense of a quintessential pre-war floor plan.
The oversized master bedroom is reached through original, restored, mirrored pocket doors and the room is large enough to create a separate home-office workspace. There is a luxurious en-suite windowed bath with spectacular Carrara marble tiling, marble mosaic floors, designer fixtures, and a lavish, fully-restored 7' antique porcelain soaking tub with a separate marble shower. The king-sized second bedroom features a large bay window with eastern exposures and charming historic brownstone views.
The dual-windowed chef's kitchen has been appointed with high-end stainless-steel appliances including a Viking range, Viking microwave, Miele dishwasher, and Liebherr refrigerator. The kitchen also features custom cabinetry, a modern glass subway tile backsplash, and pristine Carrara marble countertops. The second, fully renovated marble bath sits conveniently adjacent to the kitchen.
105 West 72nd Street is a well-established pre-war condominium. The building features an elegant lobby attended by a part-time doorman and a resident building manager. The location is unbeatable, with Central Park just steps away and multiple choices for transportation within a block in every direction. 72nd and Columbus is truly the heart of the Upper West Side with every possible choice for food, shopping, boutiques, restaurants and services.
