This meticulously renovated high floor home is the perfect blend of original prewar details and modern amenities for todays lifestyle. You must see this residence to fully appreciate how the size and relationships of these rooms and this renovation will change your lifestyle. The living room, dining room and kitchen are clearly separate but also open to one another and are ideal for conversation and entertaining. While everyone uses the terms gourmet kitchen or cooks kitchen, this truly is closer to a restaurant kitchen than anything you have ever seen. The level of the appliances, the amount of workspace, the materials chosen and the artisanship make this custom kitchen a rare find. The perfectly situated island has a wonderful seating area where you can see into the dining room. The massive dining room is flooded with south light and has views of open city views. Original French doors open into the spectacular living room with a decorative fireplace and beautifully designed built-in bookshelves on either side of the mantel. The library is a total surprise; a hallway space was cleverly crafted into a stunning library. This space is flexible and could just as easily transition into a home office or playroom. The attractive north-facing bedroom is surprisingly bright, has excellent closet space and an en-suite windowed full bathroom.Down the winding hall, a classic feature of buildings built in the early 1900s, are the master bedroom, third bedroom, second bath and the home office. The master bedroom faces south, has open city views, a wall of closets, and is almost a perfect square. The completely redesigned spa bathroom has two windows, a soaking tub, separate glass enclosed shower, and a beautiful vanity. The washer and dryer are concealed behind doors. The third bedroom is cleverly designed. Either as the ultimate kid's room with a loft bed and plenty of room under it for play and a built-in desk for schoolwork, or another home office with a guest loft bed. The tucked away office is a smart use of space in this home. Carved out from the expansive hall area with an opening to the hallway for light and air, built-in desk and excellent storage space. For air conditioning, there is a mix of central air, thru-wall and one window unit. This grand restored home has all the turn-of-the-century details lovingly intact with a well-designed modern aesthetic.Located in a stunning full-service building with special features such as a spectacular roof top deck, fitness room, bicycle room and storage. The wonderful staff consist of a 24-hour door attendant, resident superintendent and porters. 302 West 86th Street has an exceptional entrance with decorative terracotta stone carvings and is located on a gorgeous tree-lined block between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive. The rare block has the feeling of a cul-de-sac, as there is no public transportation on this block nor any access to the Westside highway. The block is lined with elegant buildings built from the early 1900s to the late 1930s. The building is perfectly positioned in the heart and soul of the Upper West Side with easy access to gourmet grocers, boutiques and transportation. Sorry not pets allowed.
