Grand and elegant in both scale and design, this oversized 6.5 room apartment at Astor Court, has been thoughtfully updated to optimize use of the abundant space and gracious layout while maintaining its classic pre-war character. Configured as a 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bath, this exceptional home, measuring approximately 2100 square feet, offers uniquely spacious rooms, soaring 10' ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and generous closets/storage throughout. Off the intimate elevator landing, you enter into a sizable, 19-foot central Gallery, which leads you to the expansive Living Room, ideal for entertaining and large enough to comfortably include a formal Dining area. The original Dining Room is currently used as a Den/Library with exposure onto the building's beautiful private garden. The renovated, windowed chef's kitchen has been meticulously designed with a custom breakfast nook at the window, sleek custom cabinets with lacquer frames and solid mahogany doors, Calacatta marble countertops and backsplash, and top-of-the-line appliances including a vented Viking range, Liebherr refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and a vented washer/dryer. Facing south, there are 2 large bedrooms and 2 full windowed bathrooms; one en-suite and the other accessed off the bedroom corridor. The third bedroom faces north onto the peaceful Astor Court garden with an en-suite half-bath.
Built in 1916, Astor Court was designed in the Italian-palazzo-style by renowned architect Charles Platt for developer Vincent Astor, and was one of the first buildings in NYC to offer a beautifully landscaped central garden courtyard. A coop since 1985, this 12-story, 158 unit building is one of the most desirable addresses on the Upper West side, extending from West 89th Street to West 90th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues. Its convenient location offers easy access to both Riverside and Central Parks as well as shopping, restaurants and transportation. This impeccably maintained, full-service building has a 24-hour doorman and Resident Manager. In addition to the common central garden, there is a roof terrace, children's playroom, bike room and laundry room. Pet friendly, pied-a-terres permitted. 2% flip tax, 70% financing allowed.
