SUNNY PREWAR CLASSIC 6 WITH HUDSON RIVER VIEWS
Generously proportioned prewar 6 room apartment, located on the “Gold Coast” of West End Avenue between 82nd and 83rd Street, with stunning views of the Hudson River as well as northern and southern exposures.
The apartment opens into a gracious gallery from which the living, dining, and residential areas emanate. This central space includes elegant cove lighting and a walk-in coat closet.
To the north of the gallery lies the grand living room that has bright open exposures across 83rd Street. The entrance to the room is surrounded by floor to ceiling built in shelving and cabinetry that is both elegant and practical.
The southern end of the gallery leads to a spacious formal dining room with direct views of the Hudson River. The flow from the living room, through the gallery and into the dining room provides a 53-foot span of exceptional entertaining space.
Off the west side of the gallery is a bedroom foyer which contains a large closet and leads to the sun-flooded primary and second bedrooms. Both bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms share the same direct river views as the dining room. The corner primary bedroom also faces north and includes two closets as well as built-in cabinetry around the window. The second bedroom has a second exposure to the south. It features three generous closets and built-in bookshelves. All of the closets in the bedroom area are custom outfitted for maximum storage.
The windowed kitchen is situated behind the dining room and includes a pantry area, generous cabinet space, a Wolf range, Sub Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and a full-sized washer and dryer.
Off the kitchen lies the servant's room, currently outfitted as an office with a built-in desk and shelving, and a convenient Murphy bed, as well as a full bathroom. Both the kitchen and office have sunny southern exposures.
Architectural details such as hardwood floors, high beamed ceilings, and crown moldings epitomize the prewar sophistication of the apartment.
