A dramatic 17' long gallery creates a gracious entrance to this prewar Classic Five room home, off of which bright living and dining rooms radiate. The corner Master bedroom faces South and East with great natural light, plus a large walk-in closet. The second bedroom has built in bookshelves and gets great light from the East. The generously proportioned formal dining room is perfectly located off of the kitchen which makes for convenient entertaining. The windowed kitchen has a vented washer/dryer and powder room. The apartment boasts prewar details, hardwood floors and ceilings up to 9'6". The DeSoto is a full-service Beaux Arts building that dates from 1917 and was converted to cooperative in 1979. Amenities include a full-time doorman, resident manager, roof terrace, laundry room, playroom as well as storage bins and bike storage as available. Conveniently located near both Riverside and Central Park, the building is also 3 short blocks away from the express subway stop at 96th Street!
