NOTICE: Applicants MUST love vintage charm! This 1-bath, oversized studio co-op in the notable Art Deco building at 96 Arden whispers of a more glamorous era. They just don’t make apartments like they used to. Haven’t you always wanted an apartment with a wide, welcoming entry foyer? This unit’s huge entryway allows for the civilized removal of winter coats and hats, and offers a choice of two closets in which to store them. The airy foyer spills into the living room, separated by a wide, sweeping archway. Immediately, you’ll notice the crown molding and original parquet floors with inlaid wood details. The living room is lit by two sunny windows and is large enough to accommodate substantial, grown-up furniture like a sectional couch and an antique armoire or credenza.
To the side of the living room is a separate, spacious living area brimming with possibilities. The current owner is using it as a bedroom, but it can also serve as a family-sized dining room, an office, a playroom, and more. Chair rail molding gives it personality, and two windows provide uplifting light. Branching off of this bonus space, you’ll find a bright, compact recently renovated windowed kitchen with a surprising amount of cabinet space. Stove and sink are stainless-steel, coordinating beautifully with a black and silver glass tile backsplash.
The bathroom invites fantasies of the roaring ‘20s and preparations for an evening at the Cotton Club or a favorite speakeasy. Step into a spacious dressing room with closet, then pass under an archway into the bathroom proper. Striking black and white marble tile greets you, blending warmly with the mosaic tile floor in the pearlescent shades of seashells. You’ll enjoy a contemporary sink vanity with storage drawers, alongside your shower/tub combo and a toilet with a hint of vintage style.
For those who love nature and the bustle of city life in equal measure, 96 Arden Street offers an idyllic natural setting alongside the creative energy of Hudson Heights. It’s a short walk to the A and 1 trains, and just half a block from one of New York’s largest and most picturesque parks, Fort Tryon.
The building is pet-friendly and offers all of the amenities required by the busy city-dweller, including on-site laundry facilities, an attentive live-in super, bike storage room, additional storage, and elevator.
New York is a funky, interesting city with a long history. Shouldn’t your home reflect that? Here at 96 Arden, it will. You’ll love where you live.
