Description

1 BEDROOM 1.5 BATH WITH BALCONY HIGH ABOVE LINCOLN CENTER

This spacious and elegant home faces North-North-East and is flooded with natural light, starting with early morning sun, and lots of reflected light all day. The views are magnificent, taking in all of Lincoln Center, the Lincoln Square neighborhood and even a glimpse of Central Park. At night, Lincoln Center and the surrounding residential buildings present a sparkling sea of lights.

The L-shaped living and dining area has an all-glass front, with the dining area served by a pass-through from the kitchen. The balcony has floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a glass fence for unobstructed views. The kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator, range, microwave and dishwasher, as well as a stacked washer and dryer in an enclosed cabinet.

The bedroom easily accommodates a king-sized bed. The en suite windowed master bathroom is tiled with white marble. A powder room is conveniently located off the foyer.

The floors are light wood parquet. The apartment was recently refinished.

FULL-SERVICE CONDO WITH EXCEPTIONAL AMENITIES

Services include 24-hour concierge/doorman, porters, handymen and a resident manager. The elegant lobby has very tall ceilings, with wood paneling and granite floors and counters.

The health club includes a well-equipped gym, 75-foot lap pool, racquetball court, sauna, steam room and whirlpool and offers complimentary exercise classes. A community room doubles as a playroom, meeting room and exercise classroom. A landscaped courtyard offers a peaceful retreat, as well as a gate to West 62nd Street right across the street from Lincoln Center.

MUCH SOUGHT AFTER LINCOLN CENTER LOCATION

The Alfred Condominium is situated across the street from world famous Lincoln Center, home to the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, American Ballet, and three theaters.

Fordham University and its Law School are on adjacent grounds. The Juilliard School is two blocks away. Central Park and Riverside Park provide opportunity for outdoor activities.

The Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle and the surrounding blocks offer plenty of excellent shops and great restaurants within walking distance. The Alfred is conveniently close to numerous subway and bus lines.
