310 West 79th Street , 1W
Coop · Upper West Side · $2,700,000
A rambling home with SOUL, charm, character and convenience. Where size does matter, and bigger is most definitely better. This 2,788 sqft Pre-War beauty offers understated elegance with its period details meticulously restored, and today's modern conveniences seamlessly and tastefully incorporated.
The sellers made memories in this home for almost 20 years. There were Oscar parties, special life gatherings and holiday events. They celebrated birthdays and anniversaries, and hosted treasure hunts and Super Bowl festivities. It's possible to party hearty up front while separation down the long hallway permits homework, reading and sleeping.
The living room boasts a decorative fireplace and a gorgeous triple picture window with original shutters. The formal dining room has the original stained glass and wainscoting. The grand, windowed, eat-in kitchen and butler's pantry will be the envy of any chef with its abundance of storage and counter space, top-of-the-line appliances (vented Viking stove with double ovens, grill and griddle, Sub-Zero fridge, etc.) and eating counter that seats four. The five big bedrooms are currently configured as a gracious master zone with a bath, separate office, and extraordinary closet space. There are two children's rooms with a shared hall bath and a family / guest room with en-suite bathroom. There are ten foot ceilings and hard wood flooring throughout, gorgeous mouldings and woodwork, transoms, a vented washer / dryer, and many built-in bookshelves. The high first floor offers surprising privacy and quiet, and the sellers' furry, four-legged friend appreciated never having to wait for an elevator for his walk to either of the neighboring Riverside Park dog runs.
The building is a boutique, 12 story co-op, meticulously maintained by the Upper West Side's most attentive and personable live-in super who receives packages (who needs a nosey doorman?) and fixes everything. There is storage and bike storage, and a laundry room for extra-large loads. It is located near the Boat Basin in Riverside Park and the crosstown bus, 1.5 short blocks to the subway and Broadway shopping, and convenient to the JCC of Manhattan, Zabar's, the original Fairway and Citarella, top restaurants and Lincoln Center.
This home offers a relaxed vibe, super-comfortable lifestyle and extraordinary value. It's time for the next lucky owner to fall in love and create new memories. Broker-owner.
