This beautifully renovated corner 7.5-Room home on West End Avenue was elegantly combined creating a fabulous flowing layout with distinct entertaining and private living areas. Superbly positioned in a handsome prewar full-service building on the Upper West Side one block from the beauty and recreation of Riverside Park. Residing on a corner with numerous windows, the apartment is filled with brilliant natural light throughout the day. Grand-scale rooms are highlighted by high-beamed ceilings, an open loft-like entertaining expanse and abundant custom storage that maximizes space. Contemporary comforts and materials blend seamlessly with old-world details. Modern upgrades include hardwood floors, exquisitely renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and fine finishes, built-in bookshelves, custom-fitted storage, a full laundry room/mud room, renovated baths and two built-in home offices. Entry into the apartment is through grand entry foyer complete with huge double-door coat closet and pantry. The foyer leads to the vast open loft-like entertaining expanse lined by a wall of windows exposing beautiful light. An open living room or den/media room features built-in bookshelves and entertainment center with a newly renovated guest powder room. The large open formal dining could easily host entertaining on a large scale and features a library/sitting area with built-in shelving.
