PRE-WW1 CONDO CLASSIC 6 ON SUNNY SOUTH TREE-LINE w/CENTRAL AC, WASHER/DRYER, & 2 FULL BATHS


HIGH CEILINGS - PERIOD DETAIL - DECORATIVE FIREPLACE - JUMBO WINDOWED EAT-IN KITCHEN / DINING ROOM


COMFY SCALE & HEART-WARMING w/FLEXIBLE OFFICE/BONUS ROOM


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 timeless and well-planned 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, sun-filled tree-line beauty (with central AC!) a residential rarity and a heroic stand-out.


With a graceful and gracious entry gallery hall spilling into the lovely living room, a coveted layout unfolds perfectly. Two well-scaled windows bring vibrant Southern light and leafy views to the stretch-out space. The decorative antique fireplace mantle anchors the space and melds magnificently with the period moldings and high ceilings.


Off the living room, and through the handsome French doors, is a culinary and dining dream space -- a magnificently scaled and practical windowed space with ample counter and cabinets, and stainless appliances. Designed by a chef, this epic sized kitchen is more than just an eat-in space, it has a full dining room as part of it. Ideal for entertaining and stretching out, this heart of the home is a standout feature indeed. The full-sized washer & vented Dryer are a perfect plus, in the nearby bonus "3rd bedroom" (former service room) -- the ready-for-your-vision bonus office/media space 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 -- both king-sized bedrooms are sizable and peaceful. The primary bedroom is on the sunny tree-line, both have good closet space, 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.
