Condop · Upper West Side · $3,500
This sprawling floorthru is nestled within a strip of stately brownstones on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Enjoying a 20'*100' lot, the apartment is roughly 1000sf, with an additional 1000sf of private garden access. This garden home was occupied by the same tenant for 27 years, has just been completely gut renovated and boasts a delicate mix of old and new, giving you a modern update to a brownstone home with some amazing period details.
Once in the unit, the entry Foyer gives you enough space to store a couple of bikes, sort your mail, or simply re-acclimate yourself to your home environment once returning from a long day in NYC.
Entering the bedroom, you have the pleasure of enjoying original window shutters, an ornate ceiling medallion and original mantelpiece crowning the now decorative fireplace. The room is 12'8" by 21'1" giving you enough space for a queen sized bed and a desk, or a queen sized bed and a couch facing a TV.
A dressing room with newly installed built-ins an additional closet space connects the front room to the rear garden facing living/dining room, and also houses a door to the bathroom with full tub and shower. Additionally, there is a Washer Dryer in the basement for your use, free of charge.
For the tenant who likes to entertain with dinner parties or simply invite their closest friends over wine and words, this large room features all new stainless steel appliances including Dishwasher and Microwave.
Directly across from the kitchen counter you will find an antique original stove that has been retained as a point of interest representing the original character of the apartment and building. While non-functional, the owner has thoughtfully created storage above the stove which would be a nice home for a large fern or other plant with full foliage.
On the right of this culinary antique, you will find built in bookshelves, perfect for the scholarly, yet stylish enough for a curated display of personality thru collected, found, and cherished items.
Now for the Piece De Resistance. Your interest in this unit was most likely piqued by the private outdoor space, and your new home has roughly 1000sf of private outdoor space that truly feels like a secret garden. Exiting the unit, you will see a brick patio with large mature fruit trees that arch and meet in the middle. The owner has provided a simple outdoor patio set for you to use or improve upon, and I did a little light gardening and installed some perennials to get you started.
The majority of the back yard is brick, allowing you 7-10 spots to add your personal flair with sculpture or planters without requiring the weekly upkeep of a private jungle.
The building is owner occupied, and your neighbors consider themselves a vertical community drawn together by their specific love of the location and the property. To that end, owner prefers to sign a 2 year lease initially once identifying a new tenant/neighbor for whom the garden unit is a perfect fit. The opportunity for a long term tenancy is both possible and the ultimate goal.
One block from Central Park, less than 5 minutes from the 2/3, B/C, Trader Joes, several Plant Shops, and a myriad of dining and entertainment options.
We welcome your inquiry for a tour of your potential new home. Available for 7/15 lease start.
