Description

A rare gem indeed!
The Home
A unique and flexible floor plan created this grand Maisonette combination in a Pre-War Coop on the Upper West Side. This flexible 3 or 4 Bedroom, 2.5 baths apartment features both a separate lobby and private street entrance from West End Avenue. Envisioned by a renowned furniture and set designer, the space has a very peaceful, Japanese inspired aesthetic that transports you into another realm.

Soft wood tones envelope the entire space, highlighted by custom shoji screens and panels that divide the space to maximize the flexibility of use for each area. The 9' ceilings are adorned by custom rice paper lighting fixtures and back-lit panels creating the most interesting artistic accents. Natural Herringbone Oak Parquet floors ground this very Zen experience.

A windowed Chef's kitchen with Oak cabinets, Viking range and black granite counters makes entertaining a joy. This perfect live/work apartment allows for 2 home offices off the street entrance or additional bedrooms as needed. Creative storage and ingenious design makes this home worthy of an Interior Design magazine feature editorial.

Washer/Dryer permitted with board approval. Complete window replacement within this past year allows for excellent insulating and make the apartment remarkably quiet. 1% flip tax.

The Building
Built in 1928, 17 floors, 93 units.Fantastic Roof Garden with panoramic Hudson River views, private storage (for rent), bike room and laundry. 24Hr. Doorman & Resident Manager, make this a place to call home!
