This sundrenched, beautifully renovated 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom plus home office offers the scale and charm of prewar living alongside modern conveniences in a full-service West End Avenue cooperative in one of the most desirable locations on the prime Upper West Side.
Off a semi-private landing, enter residence 15B through an elegant foyer and be greeted by the eastern morning sun drawn in through oversized double-hung windows in the grand and gracious living room. Overlooking West End Avenue and all of its lush foliage, the living room stretches nearly 22 feet wide and is adorned with handsome beamed ceilings and crown molding overhead. At your feet, classically elegant new base molding contrasts with walnut-stained hardwood oak floors which run throughout the home.
Directly adjacent to the living room, an oversized windowed eat-in kitchen also looks East over West End Avenue. The kitchen has been meticulously customized with lacquered wood cabinetry, a marble backsplash, Caesarstone countertops and all stainless steel appliances, and is perfected by the added luxury of a separate laundry area with industrial-sized washer and dryer which vents to the exterior.
Tucked away in their own separate wing, the bedrooms are all well-proportioned and bright. The primary bedroom faces South and offers a large customized walk-in closet alongside a windowed en-suite bathroom with a glass-enclosed stall shower, ceramic tile floors and beautiful subway-tile walls. Just beyond the primary suite is a customized home office with built-in cabinetry and desk, an added convenience ideal for those who work from home.
Separated from the primary suite by an elegant hallway lined with customized built-ins, the second and third bedrooms occupy the South wing of the apartment. The larger of the two overlooks West End Avenue and features wall-to-wall built-in closetry and vanity, a customized window seat with built-in storage below and a large customized closet. Currently being used as a den, the third bedroom faces West, capturing Hudson River views and the greenery of Riverside Park and New Jersey. Both bedrooms are serviced by a second windowed bathroom appointed with Kohler Tea-for-Two bathtub, hexagon white marble tiled floor and porcelain glass tiled walls.
