Located in a historic building on one of the Upper West Side's most coveted blocks, this jewel-box apartment is a prime example of Edwardian design. The apartment boasts South, North, and West exposures, with a dramatic entry hallway, beautiful exposed wood framing, almost 10-ft ceilings, and elegant moldings throughout.
The layout - perfect for entertaining with an open living/dining space separated by oak French doors - can be easily adapted to create an additional bedroom. All rooms offer generous closet space. The ample main bedroom, large enough to accommodate a king-size bed and reading area, features two large closets and views overlooking trees and gardens. A warm L-shaped kitchen incorporates beautiful period details. The adjacent additional room - perfect for a private guest room, office or nursery - has its own en-suite bathroom and stately floor-to-ceiling closets with built-in drawers.
A short distance from Columbia University, Riverside Park and the Hudson River, with easy access to shops, grocery stores, and gourmet dining, the building is located one block away from the 1 train at 103rd St. A vibrant Neighborhood Association ensures that the tree-lined block is meticulously maintained.
With a live-in superintendent, door attendants, laundry facilities, bike room, and additional basement storage, this well-managed building has recently renovated its elegant lobby and completed several infrastructural investments. There is a Local Law 11 and a new water tank assessment. Dryer and thru-wall air conditioning are also permitted, with an option to install central air. Pets and Pieds-a-terre are also allowed.
