Grandeur, grace and glamour greet you upon entering Apartment 2A at The Clois-ters on West 108th Street just off of Riverside Drive. This exceptional offering pre-sents the beloved features of a Beaux-Arts townhouse with the conveniences of apartment living. The main rooms of Apartment 2A comprise the parlor floor of one of the original 1899 townhouses that were combined in 1984 to create this special boutique cooperative.
Architectural details abound throughout this one-of-a-kind home. Both the living room and dining rooms enjoy oversized 3 bay window seats with recessed lighting above. There are intricate moldings throughout the grand public rooms including towering French doors and nearly 12-foot ceilings that combine to create an excep-tional entertaining space. The dining room also features a coffered wood-beamed ceiling and a 7-foot high wood-burning fireplace with mirror above.
The primary bedroom is simply magical. Southern light from the 3 oversized bay windows, intricate double panel molding, wainscoting and decorative fireplace with carved wooden surround, and built-in glass and wooden cabinets flank the French doors to create a very special sanctuary. A large walk-in closet, and en-suite bath with double sinks, walk-in shower and deep soaking tub com-plete this special retreat.
This stunning home also has 2 additional bedrooms, both with beautifully renovat-ed en-suite baths and generous closet spaces. The kitchen, overlooking the private and public gardens of The Cloisters, features a Viking gas stove with vented hood, beautiful wooden cabinetry and decorative shelving, and a diamond-patterned tile flooring that opens onto a sweet balcony offering alfresco moments throughout the day and evening.
Special bonus feature is a hidden large attic area accessed in the kitchen with con-venient drop down steps. There is a storage closet on the second floor that is pri-vate to this residence as well. Also, featured in this home is a powder room, a stacked Miele washer & dryer, and central air in the main rooms with window AC units in the two additional bedrooms.
