Move right into this high floor 5 bedroom/3.5 bathroom home close to Central Park. This sprawling, prewar residence boasts high ceilings, tons of natural light and open views both north and south of the city skyline which sparkles at night. Located off a semi-private elevator landing, this "house in the sky" has no shared walls with neighbors and is a peaceful retreat from everyday city life. A large entry foyer leads into a side-by-side living room, formal dining room and a library/den which flow graciously and each of the five bedrooms is generously-sized. The windowed kitchen is currently adjacent to the maid's room (or 6th bedroom) and could easily be combined to make a large eat-in kitchen. This thoughtful combination of a "classic six" and a two bedroom apartment has a flexible layout that offers plenty of possibilities for multiple bedrooms and/or home work spaces. Other features include renovatedwindowed bathrooms, beautiful hardwood floors, recessed lighting, custom built-ins/bookshelves, tons of closets and a vented, full-size washer/dryer. Built in 1925, 130 West 86th is an intimate, pet-friendly building with a part-time doorman and live-in Super. The building offers basement storage, bicycle storage, on-site laundry, a playroom, strong financials, 2 new elevators and BuildingLink technology. This central location is only 1 block from Central Park and is conveniently located near the 1, B, C subway lines, crosstown bus, several of the city's best schools (both public and private) and all the great restaurants and shops the Upper West Side has to offer. Please note, 75% financing is permitted and there's a 3% flip tax paid by the buyer.
