Life has changed and the world is more home-centric. While we still need a place to sleep, we also need somewhere to work, cook, relax, entertain responsibly, binge on Netflix and ideally have room for growth. This pre-war 1 bedroom has all that and more. This vast home features a gracious hallway, a large square dining foyer, casement windows, mirror paneled french doors and a generous sunken living room. The living room faces south and gets fantastic light throughout the day. This spacious (approx.1,000 sq. ft.) layout already accommodates a separate home office, and has, on another floor, been successfully converted to a lovely 2 bedroom home (as is demonstrated virtually in the second image above). The windowed, eat in kitchen boasts top-of-the line stainless steel appliances as well as a large utility/storage closet outfitted with a w/d hook-up. The master bedroom faces north, easily accommodates a king size bed and has two large custom fitted California Closets. The location is superb, with easy access to the Second Avenue Subway, and Carl Schurz Park, one of New York's hidden treasures; host to basketball courts, play grounds, dog runs, and is adjacent to the promenade with its beautiful vista of the East River. The neighborhood also offers some of the best schools in New York City. There is a part time doorman on duty 7 days per week from 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and a live-in resident manager. The apartment transfers with a large storage unit. The building allows pets, pieds-a-terre, sublets and 75% financing. There is a 2% flip tax payable by the seller.
