Looking for a prewar home that has privacy, serenity, amazing storage and an absolutely stunning contemporary renovation? Approximately 950 square feet, this three room townhouse condominium is for you! Literally steps from Central Park in the hustle and bustle of the Upper West Side, you are minutes away from convenient public transportation on Central Park West. This West 74th landmark block is well known for its beautiful Neo-Georgian townhouses with graceful wrought iron doors and railings adorning turn of the century limestone and brick buildings. Upon entering through the foyer to the 17' X 23'6 living room/dining room your attention is drawn to a huge original wood burning fireplace decorated with elegant molding that extends to the 11'6 ceiling also rimmed with original molding. Subtle recessed lighting and two bubble chandeliers by Jean Pelle add contemporary elegance to the space, creating separate living and dining areas. Collectors of large paintings and sculpture will find more than adequate wall space for their art. The kitchen has the best of everything including Wolf range with external vent, Sub-Zero refrigerator, white Italian ash custom cabinetry, Caesar stone counters, Miele dishwasher, and Dornbract fixtures and last but not least, a Bosch washer/dryer hidden in a custom made cabinet. Floors throughout the apartment are 4 walnut plank by Carlisle with the exception of the bathroom which has heated Israeli solar limestone. The bathroom is especially luxurious with a large separate glass shower, an ultra deep 5.5' tub, a heated towel rack, and access to the sound system which can be operated and heard throughout the apartment. The 12'5 X 15'7 bedroom has two large windows facing south and west, with Caesar stone window sills and contemporary sun shades. It also has one wall of Italian white ash custom storage with drawers, hanging closet space and cabinetry extending to the ceiling. There is also a storage bin available in the basement. Pets and pied-a-terres are allowed.
