Floating above Manhattan, a tranquil and enchanting terraced home awaits you in a unique full-service Art Deco building across from Central Park. Perched on the 18th floor with compelling, panoramic south vistas and open north views, you are further captivated by sweeping park vistas and the iconic south city skyline when stepping out onto either of two terraces. This lovely, elegant six room residence features a spacious entryway that opens onto both the dining room as well as generous 25 foot-long living room, three windows of which offer encompassing vistas of the park and city as well as the first terrace where you can bask in glorious sunsets to the west. The windowed chef's kitchen has verdant north park views, beautiful lacquered cabinets, a subzero fridge, and opens into the dining room allowing for gracious entertaining. The grand master bedroom is a sanctuary featuring magical park and city views bathed in beautiful morning light from the east from its own terrace, as well as an en-suite bath, three closets, and a smaller closet in the bath. The large and serene north-facing second bedroom with park, big sky, and north city views to Harlem, also has an en-suite bath and very deep walk-in closet. There is an additional powder room for guests as well as a third bedroom, the perfect size for an office, nursery, or guest room that has its own adjacent half-bath. There is additional hallway space for storage and all rooms feature classic hardwood floors, high beamed ceilings and large windows in keeping with the Deco aesthetic.
Tucked into the quiet and residential neighborhood of northwest Central Park, this unique Boak and Paris co-op, built in 1929, is the most distinctive building on northern Central Park West, and features a beautifully restored terra-cotta tiled lobby, four elevator banks, an updated laundry room, personal and bike storage, and will soon offer a spectacular roof-deck with views stretching from the Triborough Bridge and Fifth Avenue to the east, the dramatic park and city skyline to the south, and the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge to the west. Pets are allowed, and the attentive staff - full-time 24/7 doormen, porters, and a hands-on live-in super - are wonderful; residents are so happy they rarely leave. Across the street, the views from the Great Hill were the ideal starting point for the Christos' “The Gates” project and is a special refuge now during this challenging time. Being able to take advantage of all that the park offers, from bird-watching to reading and contemplation, can be both peaceful and inspiring. And when one returns to busy life, all of this is within a block of multiple transportation options via bus or train, as well as a short distance to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, the shops at Columbus Square, and many new restaurants in the area.
