The property located at 345 West 70 Street, Apt 5F could just be the fixer-upper of your dreams! This gracious co-op that is currently configured as a 2 Bedroom/1 Bath offers the option of 2 additional alternate floor plans to the original: one which includes adding a 2nd Bathroom, and one which would convert the space to a 3 Bedroom/ 2 Bath.
The home retains all the desirable architectural details characteristic to its turn-of-the century heritage, but is presently in estate condition. Very low maintenance, no assessment, and all the great bones of its grand legacy, make this property an unbelievable deal! Where else can you find a 2, potentially 3 Bedroom prewar co-op in the heart of the Upper Westside priced in the 700's?
Lofty 9'5? ceilings, deep baseboards, hardwood floors, and rooms of voluminous proportion evoke the grandeur of an earlier era. Best of all, 5F is a corner apartment with views both to the north and west. Multiple sets of windows surround the interior providing cross ventilation as well as emitting an overabundance of light. An enormously wide doorway separates the Living Room and Dining Room, creating a seamless flow of entertainment space. There is also a windowed eat-in kitchen, and a windowed bath.
The Santa Monica dates back to 1905 and is a 6 story building with 36 units. It converted to cooperative ownership in 1982. The structure itself has a commanding façade with stately embellishments around the initial entryway. It is flanked on either side by black pedestal globe lights reminiscent of vintage street lamps, and the exterior frontage is enhanced by a low decorative wrought iron fence, separating it from the sidewalk. Beyond the entryway is a concrete pavilion that leads to the building's main entrance, which has been set back a distance.
The lobby's regal provenance has been preserved with mosaic patterned tiled floors, and a passenger elevator that opens out and contains a small porthole. Amenities include a live-in super, central laundry, bike storage, and private storage facilities. This is a pet friendly coop that will allow pieds-a-terre and also subletting (with board approval). The building is ideally situated between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive with direct access to Riverside Park and the scenery of the Hudson River. Trader Joes, the Fairway, Citarella, the 72nd Street subway station, and crosstown buses are all within radius as are other local shops, restaurants, Lincoln Center, and the NY Public Library Riverside branch. There is a current assessment of $40.33 per month ends 04/2022
