100 W 72ND Street Unit: 5A, New York, NY 10023
Stunning and architecturally significant Upper West Side home in excellent condition, with central air-conditioning, is flooded with sunlight from oversized double-windows. Unique for many reasons, including its 12-foot ceiling and open landmark-protected views, the flexibility of this space as well as its location can not be surpassed.
A two-bedroom duplex, with straight stairs, plus book-wrapt loft: this layout offers endless possibilities. It is perfect for multiple family members to work from home, or as a space in which to graciously entertain. This home features an open kitchen with granite floors and counters, incredible storage, hard wood floors, a wainscoted dining-area, and spacious bathroom with marble vanity.
The Park and the Tilford, designed by architects McKim, Mead & White, was constructed in 1892 for the Park and Tilford company, a preeminent store at the time, with five locations in NYC and one in Paris; a retail behemoth well before the era of chain-stores. The building was built to exude industrious luxury, like its Chelsea cousins, out of Indiana Limestone, light-glazed terracotta, and Roman bricks. Modeled after late-fifteenth-century Italian Palazzos, 100 West 72nd Street embodies Italian Renaissance revival architecture.
Close to both Central Park and Riverside Park, with easy access to the West Side Highway, surrounded by the City's best restaurants and shopping including Trader Joe's, Fairway, and Citarella. A transportation-hub with the cross town bus and both subway lines (both local and express stops) on Central Park and Broadway. In the center of it all, however extremely quiet and serene.
This established 35-home cooperative, incorporated in 1987, is extremely well run and reasonable permitting pied a terre, guarantors, co-purchase, and pets.
