Description

Endless views over the Central Park Historic District, greet you upon entering this high floor home on one of the most desirable-double wide Museum blocks. Skyline views, a quiet corner setting and only 3 apartments on the floor, bestow privacy and supreme tranquility to a meticulously maintained home thoughtfully elevated to fulfill today’s lifestyle demands.

A truly welcoming foyer/gallery flows into a grand scaled north facing Living/Dining Room with 9’6" beamed ceilings and original refinished hardwood floors. A set of exquisitely hand-crafted glass pocket doors off the living room, create flexibility for the second bedroom, currently a generously sized Office/Guest room with custom bookcases and built-ins.

These stunning open views follow you to the spacious, serene primary bedroom, which offers double exposures North and West and two custom fitted closets. A chef’s delight, the windowed Kitchen has gleaming stainless steel counters, ample storage with wood and glass cabinetry, luxury stainless appliances, including a Sub Zero and a wine refrigerator. The hallway bathroom and powder room adjacent to the kitchen, are both windowed and classically tiled.

For added convenience and comfort there is a laundry closet with a full-size washer/ vented dryer, through-wall air conditioners and FIOS.

171 West 79th Street is an intimate, elegant prewar doorman coop with a friendly board and live-in Resident Manager. Situated within close proximity to the areas most coveted dining, shopping, cultural destinations and transportation. Equidistant from both Central and Riverside Parks and steps from The Museum of Natural History and Museum Park, life here is easy, convenient and fun.
