Description

The quaint and intimate unit of 66B at 140 W 69th is a cozy oasis in one of Manhattans world-famous neighborhoods. Its soft bright tones, including all-white furniture and 7 wide-plank Ash hardwood flooring, give an airy feel that compliments the vibrant surrounding neighborhood and surrounding city.

The completely renovated and furnished space combines the neighborhoods timeless charm with 21st Century amenities, including a 65 Samsung Smart TV.

These space-saving features offer both elegant beauty and multi-use functions, which are usually only found in much larger units and higher price points. Such features include a Murphy bed integrated with a pull-out work surface and bookcase, whose shelves are also adjustable and removable.

Another excellent feature of the space is its app-enabled Lutron Caseta lighting controls, which maintain the dim-to-warm recessed lights. The unit comes with all new appliances and fixtures, including a self-closing drawers, a full-size 30 Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer, over-the-range Whirlpool microwave with sensor and steam cooking, 2-burner electric cooktop and 12,000 BTU Air Conditioner.

The fully renovated bathroom exudes elegance, with a long durable quartz bathroom vanity that echoes the kitchen countertop.

It features a Kohler faucet and showerhead, as well as a Toto water closet. Its best feature is its wide set of mirrors, which open up the space very well and parallels the large glass panes of the shower.

The building mimics the shape and time period of New Yorks famous Flat-Iron building, and is a jewel of the neighborhood. Since its 1903 construction, it has acted as a magnificent residential building, luxurious hotel, and now once again a thriving upscale residence.

It was converted to a co-op in 1986 and is known as Lincoln Spencer and Spencer Arms. Its New York Renaissance Revival architecture is stunning and multi-colored, hearkening back to the turn-of-the-century with features like bay windows, cornices, quoins, stone banding and stone flowers, which are all topped off by its whimsical corbels. It is sure to impress both the tenant and any who come to visit.

The co-op board has made many positive changes for the modern age, and its policies are liberal and generous.

They allow co-purchases, gifting of cash toward purchase, pied-a-terre use, pets (for owners but not renters), and subletting after 2 years. There is a full-time doorman, part-time concierge, basement laundry room, two passenger elevators, and a freight elevator.

140 W 69th is in a prime location: the southern end of the Upper West Side.

This enables it access to the exciting hustle and bustle of Midtown and the quiet charm of the area. It intersects with Broadway, and is walking distance to some of Manhattans world-famous sites, including Central Parks Sheep Meadow, the Hudson River Walk, and Lincoln Center. It also offers easy access to the 72nd and 66th street subway stops along the 1, 2, A, B, and C trains.

The unit, building, and area offer the perfect combination of all New York has to offer.
