Sprawling and Sun-Drenched 4-5br Upper West Side HDFC Co-op with Unbelievably Low Maintenance.
This huge South-facing apartment has all-day light, open city views that clear the neighboring buildings, 10ft ceilings, and gorgeous pre-war details. Move right in, or transform the space into a more open layout. The proposed alternate floor plan presents an option to open up the space for loft-like living, but this is just one possibility. This well-run HDFC co-op is self-managed, keeps monthly maintenance incredibly low, makes continual improvements to the building, and is flexible with renovations. Other owners in this line have recently moved the kitchen towards the front of the apartment and added a bathroom. All renovations are subject to board and DOB approval.
High ceilings, big brand new windows with South, North, East and West exposures, amazing natural light, large closets, seemingly never ending rooms, and two beautiful original decorative mantles (wood-burning fireplaces are not currently operational) define this residence. The apartment is dripping with original details that can be preserved, including the original long wide plank hardwood floors, the solid-wood entryways and doors, the intricate decorative moldings and tall baseboard moldings, the pocket shutters, and the glass transoms above the almost ceiling height intricately designed door frames. This home features a renovated windowed bathroom, a windowed eat-in kitchen with a new W/D, and multiple bedrooms that can accommodate a king size bed. Even the long hallway leading from the south end of the apartment to the north end has an oversized window that brings in natural light throughout the day.
Please note that this apartment is on the 5th floor of a walk-up building.
