Architecturally significant and expansive classic five-room pre-war home located in the established Belvoir Cooperative situated on the quiet tree-lined corner of 83rd Street and West End Avenue.
Enjoy a great sense of privacy with only three homes per floor, as you enter into an anti-foyer leading into a large and welcoming formal foyer, followed by the side-by side formal living and dining rooms spanning over 37 feet. Classic pre-war details include 9'3" high-beamed ceilings, beautiful parquet floors, capacious closets, and excellent cross-ventilation with both northern and southern exposures bringing in tremendous light throughout the day. The windowed kitchen is well-appointed with two entrances (one off the anti-foyer and the other directly off the formal dining room), is large enough to accommodate an eat-in area, and is complete with a windowed laundry closet housing a vented washer-dryer. The laundry can be relocated in order to restore what was originally a half-bathroom. The side-by-side formal living and dining rooms are open and airy, perfect for entertaining and grand living.
Currently a classic 5-room, two bedroom and two bathroom home, one can easily create a logical south-facing third bedroom using part of the formal dining room (alternate floor plan available upon request). Each of the two current bedrooms are well proportioned, have extraordinary closet space, and their own en-suite windowed bathrooms.
