You will find the perfect balance of pre-war charm and modern living in this bright, oversized and renovated 2 bedroom (convertible 3 bedroom) 2 bathroom apartment. The living room and primary bedroom windows clear the buildings across the street, providing sky views and abundant natural light throughout the day. The home is currently set up with 2 bedrooms and a formal dining room, but the dining room can easily be converted to a third bedroom, or if you desire an open kitchen, the wall between the kitchen and dining room can be taken down. The current owners added a second bathroom en-suite to the primary bedroom, numerous custom built-ins throughout (including one with a hidden built-in desk, perfect for those work from home days), and new hardwood chevron pattern floors in the front half of the apartment. The windowed kitchen features stainless steel appliances, white and glass cabinetry, slow close drawers, Corian countertops, a custom mosaic tile backsplash from Cheryl Hazan Mosaic, and a large pantry. Incredible pre-war details remain intact throughout, including 9.6″ ceilings, glass French doors separating the living room and dining room, full height doorways and solid wood doors, glass transom windows above the bedroom doors, tall baseboard moldings, and picture molding. Top it all off with unbelievably low maintenance of only $1457.40/month.
Equidistant between Central Park and Riverside Park, this home is ideally situated on a quiet tree-lined street ending at the Peace Fountain of St. John the Divine, with close proximity to public transportation and numerous restaurants, shops and supermarkets.

Transit is convenient with the 1, B, and C trains a few short blocks away and easy access to several bus lines. The building was built in 1910 and has an excellent live-in super. The lobby has been beautifully restored, the building recently renovated its laundry room, basement storage ($35/mo) and bike storage ($5/mo), and recently added a video intercom system connected to your phone.
