Apartment #10D is truly a special home: a chic oasis located on a high-floor with open city views and sun streaming in the windows throughout the day. This elegant, corner classic 5 room apartment is as large as many classic sixes and consists of a living room with decorative fireplace, formal dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and south, east, and north exposures. Contemporary renovations merge seamlessly with the elegance of original prewar design for an abode in the sky perfectly suited to living and entertaining. Views from every window are of blue sky and distant cityscapes and showcase both the vibrancy of the neighborhood and the historic architecture so distinctive of the Upper West Side. Overlooking the iconic Apthorp apartment building to the south and the Apostles Church to the east, both landmarked, one is removed from but has expansive views of Broadway and 79th Street stretching east. Of particular note is the beautiful church steeple and barrel tile terra cotta roof which can be seen from all eastern windows. Open views from this high floor home also reach the turrets of the Natural History Museum and beyond to Fifth Avenue buildings. The open north exposure means that there are open, protected views and light from every room in the apartment. 400 West End Avenue is one of West End Avenue’s most desirable buildings and is known for its Art Deco lobby and oversized, well designed apartments. The apartment is highlighted by three exposures, a corner master suite and abundant oversized windows. Beautiful original hardwood floors are found throughout the apartment; herringbone patterned in both formal rooms.
