Penthouse Duplex Living!!
Here’s a chance to live your best life in a sunny uptown loft with an airy and spacious appeal. This impeccably renovated two-bedroom, two-bath penthouse at Striver’s Lofts in Manhattan’s effervescent West Harlem neighborhood, offers exquisite detailing throughout, direct elevator access and a private roof terrace. It doesn’t get any better than this.
Entering, you’ll immediately notice soaring ceilings, massive windows and a two-story exposed brick wall. An abundance of natural light bathes the white oak flooring in a soft glow. The main living area is completely open to a stunningly modern open kitchen with cubist-inspired cabinetry, a stainless steel gas range, a panelized fridge and a large prep/dining island with a sink and gooseneck pull-down faucet.
Incredible architectural stairs lead up to a light-filled loft area with a wall of windows. The possibilities seem infinite, from setting up a work-from-home space to entertaining friends and colleagues. A fabulous private terrace offers panoramic skyline views. Imagine dining al fresco, or just relaxing with chilled drinks as the sounds of the city drift upward. An additional doorway leads directly to the building’s shared roof deck.
The main level is home to two delightful bedrooms, each with a wall of windows, exposed white brick, recessed lighting and plenty of closet space. The primary bedroom has a remodeled en-suite bath with custom fixtures and lighting, a designer vanity, a high window, and a glass-enclosed combo soaking tub and shower. The white tiled hallway bath offers a pedestal sink and combination tub and shower.
The care that was taken to create a memorable modernist dwelling is significant, with built-in white benches, extra storage, security intercom, and full-height Euro-style cabinetry in the chef-inspired kitchen. The overall feel is one of elevated tranquility—a perfect oasis in the city that never sleeps. The five-story brownstone was originally built in 1910, and has since been restored and redeveloped into a boutique residential building with a wonderful lobby.
Striver’s Lofts takes its name from Striver’s Row, a tiny enclave also known as the St. Nicolas Historic District. Positioned between Adam Clayton Powell and Frederick Douglass Boulevards, the neighborhood has a storied past as a cultural mecca for African-American performers, artists and professionals, continuing into today’s melting pot of urban creativity and excitement. You’ll be strolling distance from Uptown Pizza, Chez Jacob, Lambda Lounge, Vegan Hood, Shrine, and Harlem Nights.
From all-night bars and diners, to yoga studios, clothing boutiques and so much more, this is simply a great place to be. Your sublime loft will be about a block from St. Nicholas Park and the 135 Street subway.
