Description:

Sun-filled and sprawling with 10-foot ceilings, this 3-bedroom (easily convertible to 4), 2-bathroom home is located in anelevator-serviced prewar building in the coveted Audubon Park Historic District of Washington Heights! The home boasts triple exposures and south-facing open city views. Beautiful sunlight streams in through oversize windows, all of which were recently replaced for superior insulation. In addition to three generous bedrooms, the home boasts an elegant formal dining room and a bonus room off the kitchen (originally maid's quarters), either of which could easily function as a 4th bedroom!

The spacious living room is distinguished by original prewar details including a striking fireplace, an ornate ceiling medallion with accompanying chandelier, and elegant crown and baseboard moldings. The windowed eat-in kitchen offers terrific cabinet and countertop space. Both bathrooms are windowed as well, and the home is further enhanced by tremendous closet space. The icing on the cake is the exceptionally low monthly maintenance of only $788!

Constructed in the early 1900's, 611 West 156th Street is an elevator-serviced prewar building with gorgeous masonry, a beautiful marble lobby, and a large, modernized laundry room. Permitted: in-unit Washer/Dryers, pets, and up to 90% financing. This is an HDFC cooperative, so income restrictions apply. For households with 2 dependents or fewer, total income cannot exceed $89,226. For households with 3 dependents or more, total income cannot exceed $104,097.

Transportation is a breeze with the 1 train right on the corner, the A & C trains just three blocks away (commute to Columbus Circle in 20 minutes), and the Bx6, Bx6-SBS, M4, and M5 buses all within a block. Sandwiched between Columbia University's Manhattanville campus to the south and NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center to the north, the neighborhood offers a myriad of mom-and-pop stores, trendy cafes and restaurants, farmers markets, new supermarkets fully stocked with whole foods and organic produce, museums (Hispanic Society Museum & Library, Morris-Jumel Mansion, Cloisters Metropolitan Museum of Art), green spaces, and so much more! Lin-Manuel Miranda was shaped into an internationally acclaimed creator by the vibrancy, beauty, and rich cultural landscape of life "In the Heights," and now you too can enjoy one of Manhattan's most rapidly appreciating enclaves!

Stroll two blocks west to reach the Hudson River Greenway (perfect for jogging, strolling, or cycling along the river) and Riverside Park, which stretches four miles from 72nd to 158th Street and offers a wide range of facilities including baseball fields, basketball courts, fitness equipment, and handball courts. You are also right by Riverbank State Park, one of New York's best kept secrets. This 28-acre park offers extensive facilities including an indoor Olympic-size pool, a covered skating rink for roller skating in the summer and ice-skating in the winter, an 800-seat cultural theater, a 2,500-seat athletic complex with fitness room, a 150-seat restaurant (Sofrito On The Hudson), two additional pools (a 25-yard lap pool and a wading pool), four tennis courts, four basketball courts, a softball field, four handball/paddleball courts, a 400-meter eight-lane running track surrounding a football/soccer field, two playgrounds, a number of picnic areas, and a walking path featuring spectacular views of the Hudson River, the Palisades, and the George Washington Bridge!
