Description

PERFECT PIED-A-TERRE OR FIRST HOME IN PRIME UWS. A RARE CONDO VALUE! Need a place to call home in the city? This oversized alcove studio is your chance to own the perfect pied-a-terre or starter home in this treasured neighborhood. Upon entry, you will notice it’s a serene escape from the bustle of the city.

Thoughtfully designed with a separate kitchen (with a large pantry), a private dressing area and tons of storage throughout! The flexible alcove space can be used as a dining room, home office or a sleeping area. Relax in a warm bath in the full-size tub.

There’s an expansive wall of windows that welcome consistent sunlight and provide treetop views of neighboring gardens. Recently transformed with brand new oak floors and updated appliances, it is by far the best value on the Upper West Side! Built in 1986, The Claremont condo has two elevators, full-time doorman, live-in super, gym, resident’s patio and laundry room. Riverside Park and Central Park are your local playgrounds.

Zabar’s, Trader Joe’s, restaurants, cafes, and movie theaters abound, with trains at the 1/B/C at 86th Street. This is the West Side’s beating heart. Photos are virtually staged.
