Welcome home to a rare and thoughtfully renovated prewar Classic Six ideally situated on a tree-lined street less than a block from Central Park. Highlights of this three-bedroom, two-bath home in the heart of the historic Upper West Side include a separate dining room, high 9'4" ceilings and windows in every room. Its south-facing living room and bedrooms open onto views of the sky and cityscape above and neighboring brown-stones below.
Enter the home through a gracious entrance gallery finished with wainscoting and original parquet wood floors that leads to the bright, spacious living room, which features chair rail moldings and a pair of beautifully framed window openings fitted with new historic district-compliant energy efficient windows that let in ev-er-changing natural light while dampening sound.
From the living room, a separate private hallway leads to two perfectly proportioned bedrooms. The sun-kissed master bed-room boasts stunning built-in cabinets that supplement the stor-age capacity of two closets and a private renovated en-suite bath with subway tiles and walk-in shower. The sunny second bed-room is conveniently accessible to another renovated bath with a tub and pedestal sink.
Through a second set of French doors off the entrance foyer, a roomy, light-filled dining room with built-in shelves and millwork is perfect for hosting large family dinners or groups of guests. Adjoining the dining room is a bright, expansive, thoroughly ren-ovated windowed kitchen with tons of cabinets, ample Vermont Danby marble counters, Miele and Kitchen-Aid appliances, Res-toration Hardware fixtures, washer/dryer and tons of pantry space. The compact cheery third bedroom is tucked just beyond the kitchen.
59 West 71st Street is a financially solid elevator building with only four apartments on each of its ten floors. Constructed in 1924, this coveted intimate building features a newly renovated lobby, a key-fob entry, a central laundry and bike room, plus oth-er storage options (for a fee). It is also easily accessible to the 1, 2, 3, B, C subway lines, the crosstown 72nd Street bus, Central Park and the myriad dining and shopping options on offer on the Upper West Side.
