This unit is a rare affordable find! Come see this charming and peaceful unit, which faces South and offers a tranquil, inviting view of a garden courtyard - in highly sought-after Hudson View Gardens.
This 3 1/2 room apartment has been transformed through clever design technique, making it into a 2-bedroom apartment -- with the dinette currently functioning as a bedroom. It could become a study.
The kitchen has been fully updated, while retaining its original wooden cabinets and butcher block counter: both are classic elements of pre-war architecture. A spacious living/dining area includes a reading nook that fits a daybed for the occasional guest. The unit's parquet floors throughout add to its elegance. Five spacious closets add to the desirability and charm of this sun filled lovely home.
There is in addition to the maintenance a monthly/ongoing assessment of $210.38. Further, the AC charges for two units are $33.65
