Beautifully and recently renovated real one bedroom apartment in the beloved Amherst coop. As we enter this perfect apartment, we are greeted by beautiful plank floors and a wall of windows facing a western sky.

There is molding throughout. Under the windows, are custom wood radiator and air-conditioner covers and shelving.

The kitchen has stunning finishes including Quartz counter-tops , GE stainless steel gas stove with a center grill, a microwave, a dishwasher, and a Bertazzoni refrigerator. There are abundant closets including a large walk in with lighting and a pocket door closure. The bedroom has windows bringing in western light, also the custom wood radiator and air-conditioner covers and shelving.

There is also cove lighting with a dimmer. The bathroom is pristine with Porcelanosa tiling that looks like marble and hexagonal marble flooring. There is a wonderful soaking tub with lovely Gerber bathroom fixtures including a rain large forest shower head,

This new and fresh apartment is in THE AMHERST, an energy efficient coop with every amenity: 24-hour concierge, gym, community/ young people’s room, courtyard and roof deck gardens with dining tables and chairs, an attached garage, and a resident manager. The shareholders are delighted with Bulk Rate Electric bills, a gas boiler, a new high efficiency CoGenerator (CO-GEN), and the use of LED fixtures throughout, which greatly reduce the environmental footprint while substantially reducing both the owners and building heating and electricity costs.

The hallways, elevators, lobby, gym, community/young people’s room, roof deck, and laundry room have been renovated with no assessments to any shareholder. Washer-dryers are not allowed in individual units. The Amherst has low maintenance bills. Cable companies include Verizon FIOS, Spectrum, and RCN.

This beautiful apartment is situated in a friendly neighborhood that has many of the most important amenities sought-after by busy Manhattanites. This pied-a-terre and pet friendly coop is very close by the Q train and a few minutes away to Central Park, East River Promenade, as well as many other parks in the neighborhood. There are many great restaurants, bars, and food shops and grocery stores, as well as Sotheby’s auction house, hospitals, and medical facilities close by.

A perfect apartment in a perfect coop!
