PRIME UWS FULL-SERVICE BUILDING

1 MINUTE TO CENTRAL PARK

GAS AND ELECTRIC INCLUDED IN MAINTENANCE!

Welcome home to a mint and "pin-drop quiet" newly renovated pre-war one bedroom apartment at the Franconia Cooperative at 20 West 72nd Street.

This 7th floor apartment has a terrific layout, separating living and dining from the bedroom. You will absolutely adore living literally less than block to Central Park!

Throughout this space, you will find new hardwood floors, extra-high original beamed ceilings, ample closet space, oversized windows, pre-war details, and lots of charm.

This newly renovated home features a large open kitchen with brand new Bosch stainless appliances, including a full-sized dishwasher, a generous breakfast bar with quartz countertops, and custom walnut cabinetry.

The open-concept living and dining space is gracious and perfect for everyday living, as well as entertaining. In between the living space and the bedroom, you will love the separate "bonus" desk alcove, perfect for working at home when needed! Also, there is a lovely new windowed bathroom, including a tub-shower with European glass.

The queen-sized bedroom features a very large unattached closet that fits in perfectly and was left by the seller. There will be room for all your clothing and accessories!

The Franconia, is a full service Doorman/Concierge Co-op Building boasting Bike Storage, a Laundry Room, Extra Storage Units, and newly-renovated Playroom. The location is superb: Across the street from the iconic Dakota and Strawberry Fields, a few doors down to the heart of Central Park and surrounded by wonderful restaurants, shopping, museums, and Express Subway stops.

Guarantors, Pied-a-Terres, and qualified International Buyers are welcome, and the building is pet-friendly, too. Maintenance includes gas and all electric.
