PARK-BLOCK, DOUBLE-CORNER, EMERY ROTH DESIGNED DANDY
3 BRIGHT EXPOSURES - 2 BIG BEDROOMS - 1 LOVABLE HOME
OPEN-PLAN LIVING-DINING-KITCHEN w/WASHER-DRYER
There are some homes that check off all the boxes: A location near Central Park; a meaningful architectural history; a layout that works for today's big life; large rooms; tons of sunshine; a peaceful/quiet vibe; an open, windowed kitchen with dining bar; dual sinks in the main bath; a soaking tub; a bonus half bath; three bright exposures; tons of closets; office space; pet friendly; building courtyard space; live-in super; doorman; easy location; recessed lighting; hardwood floors; and a move-right-in finish level. All of these seem to be the very attributes that take the cake in 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. The ceilings are 9'-2" above you, solid Oak planks are underfoot, and all around you is sunshiny beauty. Form and function reign supreme in every room. From the lofty living/dining (with ample room for a big table that seats 8-10) to the comfortable bedrooms (with big windows and great closets); and from the attractive and practical kitchen (with dining bar, ample cabinets, stone counters, and stainless appliances -- and washer/dryer!) to the classic windowed baths, this feel-good 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, there are only four homes per hall, the courtyard has a basketball space, there are storage/bike/laundry rooms, ping pong, 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. (Seconds away are an entire shopping esplanade that features among many wonderfully convenient retail and culinary options a Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe's & Target!) With Central Park on your block, Riverside Park right down the street, and a plethora of easy transportation options (express 2/3 trains plus 1/B/C local trains, not to mention crosstown bus) nearby, life here is easy, fun, and convenient.
So, my fellow box checker -- your scorecard should be pretty full right now. This handsome, winsome home invites you to put down the pen, and check out all of its gracious goodness.
