This top-floor separated 2 bedroom offering resides within one of the most attractive side street buildings on the Upper West Side, The Park Royal. Punctuated by its historic entrance marquee and impressive 2-story limestone base, 23 West 73rd Street sits on the north side of the famed Dakota building and a stone's throw from all that Central Park has to offer, including Strawberry Fields, The Lake, Bow Bridge and Bethesda Terrace.
Open city views abound from triple exposures throughout Apartment #1407. A spacious 14'x7' foyer greets you upon entering and beckons you into the sun-flooded living and dining room. Four large south-facing windows dot this expansive 24' entertainment space that is accented by pre-war architectural details. An efficient kitchen equipped with custom cabinetry and under mounted deep stainless steel sink neighbors the foyer and is complete with a full stainless steel appliance suite, including SubZero fridge and freezer, Miele oven, Summit induction cooktop, and Bosch dishwasher.
Both bedrooms are well proportioned with generous amounts of storage. The northwest facing primary bedroom boasts triple closets and an expertly updated en-suite bathroom complete with spa glass shower with a dual Waterworks fixed & handheld showerhead and Waterworks tiles. The expansive second bedroom enjoys triple exposures, two closets, and access to the second full bath located just outside of the bedroom. This adjacent bath is a close likeness to the primary en-suite bathroom, with modern Waterworks fixtures and tiles, a deep glass-encased soaking tub, stone bench and fixed showerhead.
Apartment #1407 is detailed with charming pre-war architecture throughout. Beamed ceilings and custom millwork that includes crown and base molding grace each space. Expertly laid and well preserved hardwood flooring adorn the common spaces of the home while carpeting appoints both bedrooms. W/D are permitted with Board approval.
