Rarely does a renovated, true one-bedroom home in a pre-war, doorman building in the heart of the UWS become available for $550K. Upon entering the living room, you will appreciate the wall of four east-facing windows, 9' beamed ceilings equipped with 4 separately controlled track lights, oak herringbone floors and smooth skim-coated walls. The combined living and dining areas share space with the smartly renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and traditional off white cabinets. The large bedroom, with dual northern and eastern exposures, amply provides room for a queen/king bed, nightstands and two dressers. The beautiful marble and bead-boarded windowed bathroom has been meticulously renovated with a new vanity, rain showerhead and fixtures. 305 West 86th is just off West End Avenue and conveniently located near Riverside and Central Parks, Zabar's, Trader Joe's and Fairway, and many of the finest retail stores for which the UWS is famous. Enjoy the benefits of a live-in superintendent, laundry room, and free, no wait list, bike and storage rooms. There is a 2% flip tax paid by buyer, 80% financing allowed and approximately 41% of the maintenance is tax-deductible. Co-purchasing, guarantors and gifting allowed at Board's discretion. Pied-a-terres considered on a case by case basis.
