Description

As you enter the foyer of this gracious 2 bedroom/2 bathroom home, you are immediately greeted by its classic pre-war elegance and style.

The centerpiece of the grand scale living room is a decorative fireplace with a marble surround, punctuated by tall graceful windows on either side. The dining room is the epitome of pre-war charm with 2 corner built-in cabinets and wide wainscoting. The windowed kitchen is tastefully designed with white custom cabinetry and granite countertops, complimented by an opalescent mosaic tile backsplash.

Appliances include a Fisher Paykel stainless steel refrigerator and double dishwasher drawers, and a vintage 4-burner Wolf restaurant stove. Terra-cotta floor tiles add warmth and richness.

The corner master bedroom has more than ample closet space and is bathed in eastern morning sunshine. The 2nd bedroom, currently being used as a den/office, has a wall of floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases and a walk-in closet.

Both bathrooms are en-suite, and have been updated with new fittings and fixtures, but retain much of their original pre-war detail. The apartment's original parquet floors were recently refinished in a rich dark brown, and there is a new Samsung washer/dryer in the unit.

Built in 1906 and once owned by William Randolph Hearst, The Clarendon sits in a prime Upper West Side location at the corner of 86th Street and Riverside Drive, and features a distinctive bronze and glass entrance marquee. It is a full service, non-smoking co-operative with a gym, laundry room, bike room, live-in super, private storage available, and is pet friendly.

There is an assessment of $250.63/month until June 2023 for hallway (already done!) and lobby renovations.
