Description

Feel like you’ve seen everything? Has your prewar dream home been eluding you? Welcome to 255 West 108th Street, apartment 4E, a rare restored Classic Six in a perfectly-located, full-service building.

Lovingly restored by the current owner/designer, this apartment boasts high ceilings, original hardwood floors, a decorative fireplace and three exposures.

Step back in time while enjoying modern conveniences like an in-unit washer/dryer and dishwasher. Currently used as two bedrooms plus study, the home easily converts to three bedrooms.

This apartment rambles like a horizontal townhouse, with an entry foyer branching off in multiple directions. A butler’s pantry accommodates all your storage needs with a coat closet and original glass-fronted cabinets.

Pass through to the charming windowed kitchen with Bertazzoni range, Subzero fridge, dishwasher and massive wall-hung sink. A small bedroom occupies the former maid’s room, with an ensuite half bath and an adjoining washer/dryer.

The dining room’s quarter-sawn oak paneling is a must-see for lovers of prewar design. With beamed ceilings and two exposures - including a triple window with open treetop views - it retains the grandeur of another time.

French doors lead to the sun-soaked living room with exquisite details like plaster moulding, classically proportioned wood panels, carved fireplace mantel and vintage tiled hearth. A hallway lined with closets leads to the additional bedrooms and full bath. Mahogany doors with glass knobs open to these light-filled spaces with distinctive beamed ceilings and parquet floors found throughout the home.

The charming windowed bathroom preserves the original deep soaking corner tub.

Built in 1910, the Manchester is an impeccable full-service elevator building with friendly staff and many recent upgrades, including new windows in 2022. Subway access is a breeze, and with Riverside, Morningside and Central Parks all within a few blocks, you can access the natural beauty of the city in every direction. Bookstores, shopping, restaurants and the majestic Cathedral of St.

John the Divine are right around the corner. And with three supermarkets (and Absolute Bagels!) within two blocks, your pantry will never be empty. This gracious, financially sound co-op boasts a doorman, multiple elevators, and a bike room.

Pets are welcome, too - and there’s even a vet across the street.

Co-broking agents are always welcome. Showings by appointment only.
