This expansive, pre-war apartment located in Washington Heights coveted Audubon Park Historic District affords an upscale lifestyle in a desirable full-service cooperative and unique neighborhood. A beautiful classic 6-room layout with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths is enhanced by sweeping Hudson River views. A gut-renovation blends prewar charm and modern luxury at reasonable maintenance fees.
