Rarely does a high floor C line at 885 West End Ave become available to the market. Coveted for its cleverly designed and flexible layout, this sun filled rambling prewar 6.5 RM home is perched on the South West corner of eleventh floor of the building. 11 grand-scaled windows are all exposed outward offering open skies, city scape vistas, partial river views and extraordinary sunsets.
Enter to an inviting large central foyer which leads to four different access points to the apartment, setting the stage for a graciously appointed and proportioned home. Beautifully restored glass French doors open into the south facing living room, the grand (19-foot) dining room, separate bedroom wing (two corner bedrooms with double exposures featuring partial river views), and a hallway leading to the kitchen and office.
This 2-3 bedroom, 2 full bathroom home is graced with classic turn of the century charm such as lofty 9.5 FT ceilings, a decorative fireplace mantel, towering French doors, 13 elegant solid mahogany wood doors, picture moldings and entrance frames and handsome herringbone hardwood floors. Unique to turn of the century design, there are 10 closets throughout, including an oversized pantry.
The lovely classic white kitchen is very bright with a rare large window that provides partial river views, and features custom cabinetry, custom subway tiling, and is professionally equipped with a Viking stove and Sub Zero. The kitchen and butler's pantry provides plenty of storage space and ample counter space, and there is a washer/dryer.
The third bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen and can serve as a home office, den or kitchen extension.
There is a renovated full second bathroom and the oversized main bathroom can easily be updated. The kitchen and bathrooms are complete with beautiful Wilson Barber fixtures.
This well established, pet-friendly residence is in a beautifully maintained Co-op on 103rd Street and West End Avenue. Designed by famed architect Gaetano Ajello, it is characterized by elegantly laid-out and spacious floorplans with high ceilings, moldings, and large windows. Staff includes a live-in super, two porters, and 24/7 lobby attendant. Apt 11C transfers with a private storage locker at no additional cost. Building amenities offered include gym and bike storage. 80% financing is permitted.
