A home where memories were made – young and old visited and thrived, stories told, experiences shared. Tea parties, sleepovers, brunches and dinners. Reading, working, watching tv, discussing current events, reviewing the day's activities, planning tomorrow's schedules and dreaming about the future. All while bathing in the delicious, direct southern early afternoon sunshine.
It was the base for travel to theaters, museums, classes, shopping adventures, fine restaurants, and dives. Take out, order in, and gourmet meals prepared at home or microwaved.
It was peaceful and quiet, offering the convenience and privacy of in-unit laundry, outstanding closets and storage for all the stuff that collected through the years, wonderful neighbors and a friendly and helpful building staff.
This expansive, rarely available 'Classic SIx' prewar gem will be the backdrop for its new owner's yet-to-be-made memories. It offers a gracious entry foyer leading to the large south facing living room. Beyond the living room down the hall, is the large south facing primary bedroom with an ensuite windowed bath, as well as the generous second bedroom and another windowed full bath just off the hall.
The east facing windowed kitchen with a separate service entrance, offers plenty of storage and counter space. Adjacent to the kitchen is the former maid's room, now a home office, and is easily convertible to a third bedroom. It contains a third full windowed bath with a walk-in shower and the in-unit washer and dryer. The spacious separate dining room could easily accommodate a large group. Other features of this magnificent home include high ceilings, herringbone hardwood floors, ample closets and other prewar charm.
The intimate, full-service 325 West 86th Street, was designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela. It comprises some 49 units, three per floor, and is located on a quiet and picturesque tree-lined street between West End Ave and Riverside Drive. It's location cannot be beat.
