Pre-war charm and West End Ave cashet waiting to be renewed in this beautiful Upper West Side Classic-6, convertible to a 4 bedroom!
Views of treetops and the Renaissance-Revival architecture of historic West End Ave illuminate the living room, dining room, and largest bedroom of this classically beautiful and expansive home: over 40 feet of light-filled, West End Ave exposure. A ceiling height of over nine feet, with classic detail waiting to be restored to its original, turn-of-the-century grandeur. While most Upper West Side pre-wars include at least one interior view, the back-facing exposure here offers light, courtyard views, and open sky from the largest bedroom suite. Your possibilities are endless: open your kitchen, add your washer / dryer anywhere you like, keep the pre-war flow of French doors and original wainscoting, or open up the space for a loft feel and great room of nearly 500 square feet. A complete renovation will be conducted by the purchaser before move-in, and a detailed estimate of that process is available upon request.
The building is everything you'd expect on West End Ave: friendly, full-time staff from your porter and building handyman to a 24-hour door-person. Personal storage, gym, and common laundry all half-a-block from the sports fields, jogging trails, and serenity of Riverside Park. The coop will consider sub-letting and pets. Come see this gorgeous and light-filled space for yourself!
