Magical, One of a Kind, 2BR/2BA + home office on Prime Park Block
The magic begins from the moment you turn from Central Park West onto verdant West 74th Street. Widely considered one of the most beautiful blocks in the city, magnificent Neo-Georgian mansions of architectural and historical provenance welcome you home. Nestled mid-block, in one of the original 'Clark Estate Houses' designed by noted architect, Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, of The Dakota and Plaza fame, is Apartment 2D, a one of a kind 2BR/2BA (+ home office) residence which blends old-world grandeur with the comforts of modern living.
From the co-op's refined marble lobby, ascend the sweeping staircase or take the elevator to the second floor to reach this elegant 6 room home. Soaring ceilings, hardwood floors and oversized windows create an atmosphere of light and space while an exceptionally functional floor plan, encompassing three levels and accessed by just a few stairs, offers excellent separation of entertaining and private spaces. Apartment 2D is approximately 1425 square feet and evokes a feeling of a 'house within a house'.
On the first level you will find the kitchen, recently updated with new appliances and countertops. Adjoining is a cozy dining area for casual meals or entertaining. An enormous second bedroom, discreetly tucked away from the dining area for privacy, includes a wall of closets and a full bath. This second bathroom is also conveniently accessible from the main foyer allowing it to function as a powder room for guests.
A few steps up, on the mezzanine level, is the stunning corner living room. Especially majestic, this light and airy salon is anchored by a wood burning fireplace, large double-paned picture windows and a grand ceiling height of over 12.5'.
The third level, accessed by an art deco staircase with floating stairs, features the private primary bedroom with a wall of closets and an updated en-suite bath. An adjacent home office/study/library overlooks the dramatic living room and is spacious enough to serve as a guest room, den, or even a gym. Two closets, one a deep walk-in, complete this upper level.
Perfectly situated in the most iconic part of the UWS, 30 West 74th is surrounded by great restaurants, wine bars, gourmet food stores and boutiques, and offers easy access to Lincoln Center and all transportation options. This intimate pre-war co-op allows up to 75% financing, pied a terres, pets and washer/dryers (with board approval). Common basement storage is also available and there is a recently renovated laundry room for residents. There is a 1% flip tax to be paid by the purchaser.
