Apartment 17EF at 230 West End Avenue is a sun-filled, two-bedroom, two bathroom prewar home (that can easily accommodate three bedrooms) ideally located on a beautiful residential thoroughfare in a prime Upper West Side location one block from Riverside Park. Located on the 17th floor with three exposures the home showcases open city views from nearly every room and offers abundant natural light throughout.
The well-proportioned layout presents an open formal expanse with a very spacious and bright side-by-side open living room and formal dining room, as well as a windowed kitchen with butlers pantry, a large entry foyer and a separate residents wing with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The apartment is filled with pretty old-world elements including hardwood floors (herringbone in the formal expanse), crown moldings, French doors, pocket doors, built-in dining hutch and door transoms. There is very generous closet storage throughout the apartment.
The kitchen is extremely bright with a grand south-facing picture window with open city views. There is plentiful cabinet storage with brand new countertops, as well as a dishwasher, Sub Zero freezer drawers and an adjacent butlers pantry currently providing a refrigerator and a wine refrigerator. Two entrances provide a wonderful ease in entertaining to the open formal expanse.
Both bedrooms are bright with open exposures and two closets. The primary bedroom features a very large walk-in closet and en-suite renovated bath with marble surfaces including basket-weave floors, new fixtures and a pedestal sink. The second bathroom is adjacent to the second bedroom and is in great original condition.
This wonderful combination layout offers gracious living with wonderful open views and light in an excellent building in an ideal Upper West Side location.

Amenities include a full-time doorman, live-in superintendent, laundry facilities, bicycle storage, garden/courtyard and storage. Through-the-wall air conditioning is allowed in the building. Pieds-a-terre are permitted. Sorry, no pets.
