Corner unit in a full service condominium at the intersection of 96th street and Broadway, is tucked in back of the building, facing west over gardens and terraces for peace and quiet. This 3 BR/2 BA unit's 21' long living room offers plenty of space for separate seating and dining areas, with a convenient pass through window to a galley kitchen with dishwasher. A king sized master suite, with en-suite bath, has a double closet and room for a walk in closet...or two! Two additional bedrooms are each big enough for a queen bed! Second full bath has a window for natural light and ventilation. The balcony, accessed from one of the bedrooms (which could be turned back into a dining alcove if you prefer) is big enough for a table and chairs, and offers a sliver view of the Hudson River. The Columbia's enviable amenities include a 24/7 attended lobby, gym, playroom, and swimming pool. Lobby soon to be sparkling new thanks to a renovation in process (expected to be completed in September!). Two year assessment ($114/mo in 2019 rising to $193/mo in 2021). There's also storage space and a bicycle room (waiting list). Great location puts you close to shopping, transportation, Central Park, Riverside Park, and everything you love about the Upper West Side. This apartment NEEDS TLC and will amply reward you for your efforts, creating a peaceful sanctuary in the big city.
