Description

Perfect Pied-a-Terre

A stunning studio, designed with a Parisian style ambiance, a stone’s throw from Central Park, the iconic Dakota, and Strawberry Fields. This is a beautiful, well-designed studio in the heart of the Upper West Side. Meticulously renovated, with custom built-ins, and hand-painted Venetian plaster, all with the luxuries of an exceptional home.

This studio is in excellent renovated condition.

It is stylish and functional, with combined living, island counter dining, and a remote work area. Apartment 81C also offers a bonus storage closet, located outside the apartment, a rare offering in this building. Recently, all 15 floors of the Bancroft were renovated, with updated hallways, fixtures, and new apartment doors.

Built in 1926 by renowned architect Emery Roth, the Bancroft is a full-service pre-war cooperative building in superb physical and financial condition.

Located just half a block from Central Park, gourmet and boutique shopping, restaurants, and other neighborhood favorites, such as Trader Joe’s, Fairway, and Citarella. Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle are all within a few blocks, offering entertainment, shopping, and a Whole Foods.

The Bancroft boasts a beautiful historic lobby and passage hallways. It offers amenities such as a 24-hour doorman, central laundry facility, live-in superintendent, additional private storage for rent (with a wait list), a bike room (with a wait list), and a package room.

The Bancroft is conveniently located to public transportation, including local and express trains 1/2/3 and the B and C trains, as well as the M72 crosstown buses, and various uptown/downtown buses.

80% financing allowed. Pied-a-Terre and guarantors are welcome, and the building is pet-friendly.
