This spacious 2-bedroom, 1.5-bath condo is set in a meticulously redeveloped prewar loft building, just a few short blocks from Central Park and Columbia University, as well as multiple subway lines. Blending classic NYC details with current design trends, this beautiful unit benefits from a fantastic layout that flows off of the entry Foyer and hallway, connecting the living spaces at one end of the unit with the bedrooms on the other, providing an unusual amount of privacy between the rooms. Exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and 11-foot ceilings run the length of the apartment, complemented by copious natural light throughout from 3 exposures, including from the three south-facing windows in the living room. The large, open and windowed chef's kitchen is great for entertaining as it flows seamlessly into the oversized living and dining room. The kitchen features granite countertops and copious storage in custom wood cabinets, as well as full-size stainless steel GE Profile appliances, including gas range, bottom freezer fridge with ice maker, dishwasher and microwave. The two bedrooms are queen sized with large closets and are quiet owing to their positioning away from the street, with East facing windows into a courtyard. The main bathroom is outfitted with Kohler fixtures and a rain shower, and there is an additional powder room, as well as in-unit washer/dryer. There is a designated storage closet in the basement. Pets will be considered on a case by case basis, and are subject to additional deposit. The apartment is set on the fourth floor of a 16-unit elevator prewar condo that was fully renovated in 2007. The building has bicycle storage, a video intercom system and a part time super. The 4,000 sq ft roof deck is lushly planted, and offers sweeping views towards Central Park, Columbia University and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Your new home is in the heart of the South Harlem Renaissance, a historic neighborhood with hip restaurants, shopping and cute cafes on the surrounding blocks, yet with the 2/3 and B/C subway lines just steps from the front door, Midtown is just 15 minutes away. This location also benefits from a 6 block walk to Central Park, and from being one avenue from Morningside Park, with Columbia University just beyond it.
