This charming, flexible junior two-bedroom right near Columbus Circle is perfect for working from home, a baby room or a share. The home office wall can also be easily removed to achieve the original configuration of an extra-large living room. The sunken living room has all the pre-war charm, with high beamed ceilings, original wrought-iron railing, and solid oak herringbone floors. There is a dining alcove and a foyer, which can accommodate additional office space. The bedroom can comfortably fit a California King bed, with room to spare, and features two large closets. There are two additional closets, a fully equipped windowed kitchen, and a recently renovated stylish bathroom with a custom-built linen closet.
The building has a gorgeous Art Deco lobby, a 24-hour doorman, two gardens (with herbs for cooking), two furnished roof decks with gas grills and plenty of seating, two laundry rooms, a gym, and a conference room. Pets are welcome.
The unbeatable location is one block to Central Park, across the street from Time Warner Center and A/B/C/D/1 subway lines, and two blocks to the N/R/Q. Lincoln Center, Juilliard, Carnegie Hall, Fordham University, John Jay College, and all of Hell’s Kitchen restaurants are in immediate proximity.
Condo rules (formally co-op ownership) allow purchasing in an LLC or Trust, gifting, and no board interview; unlimited subletting is allowed from day one, with a six-month minimum lease, perfect for a 1031 exchange. The maintenance of $ 1,789 is very reasonable for this space, amenities, and location, and is partially tax-deductible. The Westmore is an excellent investment, as well as a wonderful place to live.
