Description

FIRST YEAR OF MAINTENANCE PAID BY SELLER!

Welcome to this contemporary and lofty, north-facing 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home, located in a long-established and highly coveted classic pre-war cooperative. Renovated into an open plan kitchen/dining/living room, it currently serves as a three bedroom plus office and can be easily transformed into two generous bedrooms plus office. This chic home features the best of both worlds and can convert from an amazing work environment by day to a stylish, soothing oasis home by night.

The apartment entry is strategically and quietly tucked away off the lobby and has charming planters that the building meticulously plants annually. If you are thinking of office space, building prefers a professional with low foot traffic.

As it is currently configured, the generous primary suite has a long wall of built-in closets and plenty of extra space for one’s storage needs. Flanking the primary bedroom are two small bedrooms which may be the most coveted rooms in the home as they are so inviting, each with fabulous built-in storage and platform beds.

The office is an absolute bonus and can double as a guest room as it currently accommodates a queen size sofa bed. The recently renovated kitchen has abundant counter space with seating, top-of-the line appliances, porcelain wood-look tile, and great storage as well. Light blond parquet flooring and through the wall AC in living/dining, traditional strip flooring and window AC units in bedrooms.

There is even space for a third bathroom or washer/dryer in the current walk-in closet, subject to board approval.

164 West 79th Street has a live-in superintendent; a doorman serving weekdays from 8am to midnight, 12pm to midnight on weekends; and a porter serving weekdays 8am-4pm. The building also has a children’s playroom, a magnificent planted roof deck with stunning city views and BBQ; a charming courtyard garden; a common laundry room; bike storage and private storage bins (when available). Flip Tax is 0.75% of Sale Price paid by Buyer.

Pets and pied-a-terres are welcome.

The American Museum of Natural History, with its green spaces and dog run are one block away and Lincoln Center, Hayden Planetarium, Children’s Museum and JCC are all close by.
