This grand and bright Classic 7-room home is a fine example of elegant prewar architecture with abundant detail, generous scale and a gracious layout that offers a perfect balance for both entertaining and living. Exceptional northern light fills the high-floor home and showcases breathtaking, open unobstructed Hudson River, Riverside Park and open city views from the living Room and all three bedrooms! This spectacular vantage point at the south foot of the park offers full enjoyment of distant views all the way to the George Washington Bridge as well as a front row seat to the spectacular change of seasons through the beauty of the Park. The scenic vistas also overlook historic and exquisite architecture so distinctive of the neighborhood and the Eleanor Roosevelt statue in the circle of the southern tip of the Park.This rare offering provides an ideal opportunity to become only the 2nd owner of this special home as it has been wonderfully maintained by the same owner since the building converted to coop.
