This delightful one bedroom apartment has a fabulous 867 square feet of backyard space. As you enter through the front brick entranceway and common hallway (with space to park your bike), you will find a charming open living area with a decorative fireplace and an updated kitchen with designer lighting and top-line appliances. The bedroom is large enough for a king size bed and features very smartly designed closets that are camouflaged into the wall panels. The bathroom is large and outfitted with designer fixtures plus a concealed washer and dryer. The garden out back features an automatic sunshield that extends almost 20' creating an outside room great for both sunny and rainy days and expanding your home outdoors. An added bonus is a very large storage cage located in the basement. 74 west 131st Street sits four blocks to the express 2/3 train at 135th and 6 short blocks to the 125th Street shopping corridor with Whole Foods, Bed Bath and Beyond, H&M, Marshalls, and much more. But even more special are all the jazz clubs, parks, gardens and boutique shops like Pompette Wine Shop across the street, and wonderful restaurants like Babbalucci, Chai Wali, Renaissance and Red Rooster plus Sugar Hill Creamery for artisanal flavored ice cream.
