Enjoy loft-like living in the perfect Upper West Side neighborhood in this dazzling two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op in a historic prewar building.
Gleaming wide-plank floors, high ceilings, voluminous storage and shoji-style doors highlight this home's grand proportions and great style. A generous foyer entrance invites you inside to take in the massive great room that stretches 34 feet long with north and south-facing windows. The dining area has plenty of room to relax or stage gracious dinner parties, and the exceptional windowed kitchen is more than up to the task. A wall of artfully integrated bird's eye maple cabinetry delivers plenty of storage while professional-grade appliances include a stunning polished copper La Cornue Le Chateau range, featuring four burners, two ovens, a hot plate and a stone grill; a built-in Gaggenau deep fryer; a 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator; and a Miele dishwasher. The generously sized windowed bathroom features floor-to-ceiling marble, a decadent giant soaking tub, and a separate stall shower. The Living Room, master bedroom and bathroom offer views of the Hudson River. Storage will never be a concern here thanks to multiple closets in the bedrooms, hallway and foyer. The wet-bar can easily be converted to a washer-dryer closet.
Built in 1916, the building is a handsome Renaissance Revival building designed in brick, stone and terra cotta by the firm of Neville & Bagge, responsible for a number of the buildings along this stretch of West End Avenue. Situated within the Riverside-West End Historic District and converted to cooperative use in 1980, today's residents of this pet-friendly building enjoy white-glove service and amenities, including full-time doorman, live-in superintendent, FiOS access, laundry, bike room and a shared patio garden.
Located at the corner of 99th Street, the delights of Riverside Park are at the end of the block and Central Park is a mere 10-minute stroll and just two express stops on to Midtown. There's fantastic shopping, dining and nightlife along nearby Broadway, a year-round greenmarket on 97th, and Columbus Square provides a Whole Foods, HomeGoods, LOFT and more. Transportation is excellent with multiple bus lines, the local 1 and express 2/ 3, B and C trains all within reach.
