This rarely available gut-renovated D-line, 2-bed/2-bath home sits at the corner of W81st St, in a full-service, amenities-rich, 24-hr doorman building in the heart of the Upper West Side.
Unit 9D is for those who prefer prewar details, value open space and appreciate stylish touches. Details include beautiful herringbone hardwood floors, 9'4' high beamed ceilings, and well-proportioned, south-facing rooms. A king-sized bed fits easily in the primary bedroom. Custom closet interiors and built-in cabinetry allow everything in its place and pullouts make them easy to access. Baths are marble with marble seat and stone tile floor in the shower. Surprisingly open spaces create an easy flow between living areas and bedrooms without losing prewar charm.
The redesigned windowed kitchen is separate but open. It is suitable for a chef, with durable honed stone counters that can hold appliances out of your way, a breakfast bar, custom cabinets extending to the ceiling making full use of the height, and a washer/dryer and it still has room to cook with sous-chefs.
Gas is included in maintenance. A storage locker is also available for sale.
In a nod to old-world elegance, mail is still delivered to your door. This beautifully maintained Schwartz and Gross building has new gas lines, even new sidewalks, and, coming soon: a Resident's Lounge -MultiPurpose Room with playroom area, lounge furniture, TV, refrigerator, sink, and a gym with professional quality equipment. Great for gatherings and birthday parties. Additional building amenities include: a planted, furnished roof deck (with an awning for those who prefer shade), full time doorman, resident super, staff of handyman and porters, bike room (for a fee), and laundry room.
Other great features: Co-purchase and guarantors permitted and pets welcome with board approval. (Sorry, no pied--terre.) Garage across the street.
Located on beautiful, residential West End Avenue, where commercial traffic is prohibited, yet around the corner from Zabar's, close to the 79th St. #1 subway, several bus lines, world-class parks including Central Park & Riverside Park, bike and walking paths, world-renowned museums including the Children's Museum of Manhattan, the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium.
