Description

SOPHISTICATED 1 BEDROOM 1.5 BATH with BALCONY on HIGH FLOOR

This recently renovated home faces South-South-West and is flooded with natural light. At dusk a sea of sparkling lights slowly appears as if by magic. The views are amazing, taking in the new Midtown skyline, the Fordham campus and even a glimpse of Central Park to the East and the Hudson River to the West.

The balcony has floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a glass fence for unobstructed views. It is accessed from both, the living room and the bedroom.

The apartment was meticulously renovated, with no details overlooked and no expenses spared, and showcases the latest in high-tech luxury features. Kitchen cabinets and closets are designed and produced by the premier German company, Leicht, considered a high-end luxury brand in Europe.

The kitchen has all Miele appliances. These include a refrigerator with freezer drawer, a five-burner gas cook top with wok and a hood, a double wall oven with a microwave and regular oven, as well as a dishwasher, and a stacked washer and dryer in a separate cabinet.

The renovation optimized storage space in the apartment using every available square inch.

A wall unit in the living room contains a drop-down dining table. There are two closets in the bedroom, each with interior lighting. The bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed with attached night tables.

The en-suite bathroom has a stall shower with handheld and fixed shower fixtures. A powder room is conveniently located off the foyer. The floors in all rooms, including the kitchen, are wide plank, light wood.

The floors in both bathrooms are covered with large format stone tiles, and their walls are lined with sculpted porcelain tiles. Attractive custom lighting throughout adds comfort and a modernist flare.

FULL-SERVICE CONDO WITH EXCEPTIONAL AMENITIES

Services include 24-hour concierge/doorman, porters, handymen and a resident manager. The elegant lobby has double height 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, Zen-like retreat.

It has a gate to West 62nd Street right across the street from Lincoln Center.

MUCH SOUGHT AFTER LINCOLN CENTER LOCATION

The Alfred Condominium is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac 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.

Nearby 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.

It is also a great starting point for bicycling and walking in the city.
