CONDO CLASSIC SIX w/OPEN PLAN LIVING/DINING


FLEXIBLE PRE-WW1 TREASURE w/NEW WASHER/DRYER & DECORATIVE FIREPLACE


MOVE-IN READY, SOULFUL CORNER HOME w/QUIET LEAFY OUTLOOK


Here's where value, location, character, and scale come together to create Pre-War residential bliss. Sweetly positioned on lovely West 98th Street between the conveniences of Broadway and the comforting architecture of West End Avenue, this open plan Classic 6 room is a go-to residential choice with extra flexibility and extra freedom. The fact that this home is a Pre-WW1 heart-warmer -- with its era's extra high ceilings, bigger windows, and better layouts with beautiful detail -- and the fact that this soulful stunner is a sizable CONDO (and not co-op) -- make this comfortable corner beauty a residential rarity and a heroic stand-out.


With a graceful entry gallery hall spilling onto the open-plan living/dining rooms, a coveted horizontal plan unfolds perfectly. A quiet line of 4 well-scaled windows brings soft corner light and cross-breezes to the stretch-out entertaining rooms. The decorative antique fireplace anchors the space and melds magnificently with the period moldings and high ceilings.


Off the living/dining rooms is the upgraded kitchen -- a fine and practical windowed space with good cabinet space, and stainless appliances by Bertazzoni, Bosch, and Blomberg. The new, full-size LG Washer & vented Dryer are a perfect plus, and the nearby bonus "3rd bedroom" (former service room) is ideal for an expansive life -- and....it offers a full windowed guest bath.


Around the corner from the big living/dining core of this home are the bedrooms. Gracefully separate from the entertaining rooms -- and just down from the gallery hall's thoughtful cedar-lined closet -- both queen-sized bedrooms are sizable and peaceful (ensured via their bonus Cityquiet windows) -- and are served by their own full, classic, windowed bath.


Sweetly positioned in the well-maintained, boutique, 1912 condominium building called the Andrew, this feel good find enjoys all the benefits of its address and its neighborhood. With a part-time superintendent on the premises daily, video intercom entry, an elevator, central laundry, and bicycle/additional storage (at an annual fee), life in the pet-friendly Andrew is easy Because it's a CONDO, unlimited sublets and pied-a-terres are allowed -- as are one-party-buying-for-another, gifting guarantors, LLCs, Trusts, etc., etc. Freedom!


Nearby, is convenient access to every area cultural, dining, shopping, fitness, entertainment and educational destination -- not to mention a plethora of choice transportation. Riverside Park, Central Park, Columbia University, the 1, 2, 3, B, C trains, the crosstown bus, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and the best UWS restaurants and shops are a stone's throw from your front door.


If you yearn for a winning mix of classic style and open-plan practicality -- a happy home that can serve all of today's growing needs -- then this winsome residence will inspire your senses and melt your heart.
