This rarely available high-floor, sun-filled, move-in ready, Classic Six, situated in the heart of the Upper Westside absolutely has it all. This home has been updated for today's living while maintaining its pre-war charm. Upon entering the gallery, you are greeted by a sun-filled home with northern light from the two large living room windows and western light from the three windows in the open kitchen/dining room. The living room is a gracious proportion at 19'6 x 13'4, and maintains elegant pre-war details, such as beamed ceilings, picture rails and dark parquet floors. The living room flows beautifully into the open kitchen/dining room, which has been perfectly designed for both entertaining and daily living. The dining area provides space for a table that can comfortably seat eight, and the large kitchen island is complete with seating for casual dining. The windowed kitchen, is beautifully outfitted with cabinets, a six-burner Wolf stove, Miele dishwasher and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. The open flow makes the living areas feel loft-like, and glass French doors allow for flexibility and give another nod to the pre-war details.

It is important to note, there is through-the-wall air conditioning in most rooms and a full-size washer and dryer tucked away off the kitchen.
