Description

UWS pre-war one-bedroom condo, thoughtfully renovated by owner/artist/contractor. This East-facing home gets beautiful morning light in the living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Extensively renovated, each room features custom built-in cabinetry, providing a contemporary and open feeling. Closets have been combined and detailed to maximize storage and use. The entry foyer has bookcases and an incredible walk-in closet, which could also be used as a home office.

Through the entry, bookcases continue into the living room, with hard-wood parquet floors and a compact and cheery kitchen adjacent. With stainless steel appliances and Luce de Luna Quartzite counters, the kitchen packs a lot into a small space. Through double frosted doors, you enter the bedroom wing, consisting of a fully-renovated bathroom, a double-sized walk-in closet, and the bedroom, which has enough room for a sleeping area and a home office/den/nursery area, complete with frosted glass panels to divide as you wish. 235 West End Avenue, at the corner of 71 Street is a full-service condominium, one of the original Bing & Bing buildings, built in 1930.

It is pet-friendly with 24-hour doormen, resident manager, laundry, gym, bicycle room, storage and a roof deck with views of the Hudson River. A major building renovation included new hot and cold water risers and Local Law 11 work to the exterior (current assessment of $233/month, through 12/31/2020). Trains (1, 2, 3) and numerous bus lines are all within a block.

Riverside and Central Parks are each within three blocks, and the shopping (Fairway, Citarella, Trader Joe's) is close by and plentiful. Of course, Lincoln Center and the Beacon Theatre are both in the neighborhood.
