This newly renovated 3 bedroom apartment typifies the solid construction and grand classicism of the early turn of the century prewar era. Rarified elements such as beamed ceilings approaching almost 10 feet in height predominate throughout as do myriad windows that infuse the entire home with radiant light. Modern details have been thoughtfully integrated so that the residence retains a modern aesthetic as well. Immediately upon entering you are beckoned into a living and dining area that seamlessly master a flowing entertainment space, further enhanced by recently installed striking hardwood floors. Other nods to modernism are reflected in the windowed open chef's kitchen that features finely honed marble countertops, a hefty sized pantry, and top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf stove and Liebherr refrigerator. A total of three generously proportioned bedrooms with large picture windows ignite the verdant greenery just outside. Although currently there is 1.5 bathrooms it can easily be converted to 2 full baths. Other prominent highlights are evidenced in the incredible amount of storage offered by customized closets and the abundant number of built-ins that have been ingeniously incorporated and the option to have washer and drier in the apartment.
The building itself was designed by famed architects Schwartz and Gross and lovingly dates back to the year 1914. This intimate 10 story coop with 38 units has preserved its refinement with only 4 apartments per floor. Among the amenities are a live-in super, video intercom security, a central laundry room, an individual storage unit for each apartment, bike storage, and a playroom. Pets are also permitted. Best of all, monthly charges are a low $1,673 per month of which 53% is tax deductible.
252 West 85 Street is a block away from the #1 train, and both Central Park and Riverside Park are virtually in your backyard. The neighborhood too is also known for Zabar's, the AMC theatre, and the Children's Museum, as well as great shopping and dining.
