Property Description

Bright, open and filled with classic details... 4EF is my favorite upper west side one-bedroom!

Entering the apartment, residents and visitors are greeted by a large open living room with north-facing windows. Looking out upon West 104th and Broadway, reflected light bathes the space from dawn to dusk. The living room can accommodate myriad layouts and there is a floor-to-ceiling closet in the corner. Decorative fireplace and arched kitchen entryway add a touch of old-world charm to an already perfect room.

The bedroom can fit a queen-sized bed as well as a dresser and furniture. There are two north-facing windows along one wall. Opposite, there are two large floor-to-ceiling closets which can be combined into one massive closet.

The windowed kitchen boasts two stone countertops - one in the middle housing a large sink and the other against the wall with cabinets above. Stainless steel appliances include Fisher and Paykel refrigerator as well as Frigidaire dishwasher and brand new microwave and oven/stovetop.

Beyond the kitchen, the bathroom is adorned with floor-to-ceiling tiling, soaking tub and dual flush toilet. The entire apartment features high ceilings and refinished hardwood floors.

Built in 1925, the Leola is a pet friendly elevator building with below-market maintenance. The front door provides keyless entry and the lobby was renovated last year. Gift purchases, co-purchasing, guarantors and pied-a-terres are allowed. Subletting permissible after one year. Washer/dryer can be installed in the apartment (with board approval) and there is a laundromat across Broadway. There is storage available as well as a bikeroom and lending library in the basement. The shared patio off the back of the building is perfect for summer barbecues or enjoying a relaxing evening after work. Pets are welcome on approval and washer/dryer installation is allowed in the apartments.

Anchored on a quiet block, the Leola is a part of the long standing 104th Street Association which hosts an annual neighborhood block party and provides private block security. Riverside Park is two blocks to the west with Central Park four blocks to the east. Columbia University is ten blocks north. The 1 train is around the corner and the express 2/3 trains are a few blocks south.

Manhattan Valley is home to tons of restaurants, shops, and activities including Mama's Too, Cafe Du Soleil and the Smoke Jazz & Supper Club. Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Health Nuts Market and Westside Market are all a few blocks away. Equinox, NY Sports Club and Soul Cycle are close by.

One Bed in Upper West Side


Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
