RARE 'DOWNTOWN UPTOWN' SUN-FILLED SURPRISE w/OPEN-PLAN LIVING-DINING & WASHER-DRYER
There are some homes that check off all the boxes: A location near Central Park; a meaningful architectural history; a re-imagined and improved layout that works for today's big life; large rooms; tons of sunshine; a peaceful/quiet vibe; a grand foyer; a big windowed kitchen with dining bar; a large primary bedroom with surprising sunshiny views of the downtown skyline; a cheerful, dual entry guest bedroom; two full baths; a bonus half bath; three bright exposures; tons of custom closets; office space; workout space; pet friendly; building courtyard space; live-in super; doorman; easy location; beamed ceilings; hardwood floors; and a comfy, easy-to-live radiance. All of these seem to be the very attributes that take the cake on the prime Upper Westside. Well, if you're keeping score and checking boxes, then your smile should be pretty big about now.
Soulful and easy-to-love, this double-corner, triple exposure home is a standout for all the best reasons. The light and scale come together with a plan and flow that really work. Beamed ceilings are 9'-2" above you, solid Oak planks are underfoot, and all around you is sunshiny beauty. Form, function, flow, and light reign supreme in every room. From the lofty living/dining (with multiple seating areas and ample room for a big table that seats 8-10) to the comfortable bedrooms (with big windows); and from the attractive and practical kitchen (with dining bar, ample cabinets, and stainless appliances -- and washer/dryer!) to the classic windowed baths, this feel-good, lofty find is so easy-to-live.
Designed by prized architect Emery Roth in 1925, this Central-Park block beauty is well positioned on a high floor in its well-run, well-staffed building. The big lobby is classic, the courtyard has a basketball space, there are storage/bike/laundry rooms, ping pong, a playroom, and there is a live-in Super. Pet and pied-a-terre friendly, the enviable location of this home has supreme access to the area's best dining, shopping, cultural, and fitness destinations. With Central Park on your block, Riverside Park right down the street, and a plethora of easy transportation options (express train - crosstown bus) nearby, life here is easy and convenient.
