A gracious foyer leads to an expansive side by side living room and dining room: perfect for entertaining. The eat-in windowed chef's kitchen has a custom banquette, marble counters with under-counter lighting, glass backsplash, hardwood cabinetry with soft close drawers, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances including Bosch dishwasher, Subzero refrigerator, and deep stainless steel sink. This home has gorgeous parquet floors, high-beamed ceiling, and all of the walls are skim coated throughout with crisp molding. There are capacious closets throughout the apartment including two deep closets in the master bedroom and a cedar closet in the hall. The spacious and extremely quiet master bedroom, with en-suite renovated windowed bathroom, is drenched in southern light. The large second bedroom, also quiet and flooded in southern sun, is cleverly split in two, perfect for siblings, a baby, or home office and guest room.
Located on the east wing of 40 West 77th Street where there are only two apartments per floor, the coop is in strong physical and financial condition and is known to be one of the best co-ops on the Upper West Side including a 24-hour doorman, live-in superintendent, central laundry room, bike room and storage room. This pet-friendly building allows pied-a-terre and guarantors, and was built in 1928 and converted to a co-op in 1988.
Superb location in the heart of the Upper West Side between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue on 77th Street, a double wide block with no MTA traffic.
