*CONTRACT SIGNED!*Welcome home to the one of the largest and most comfortable Jr 1 bedrooms on the Upper West Side!
West 81st Street between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues is known to be one of the quintessential central UWS blocks, lined with classic brownstones and trees. Enter 136 West 81st, a charming pristine brownstone, and just 1 flight up, you'll absolutely fall in love with Apartment #2F. This home boasts 11-foot ceilings, hardwood flooring, exquisite pre-war details, exposed brick wall, wood-burning fireplace, and a giant triple bay window with cushioned seating. While technically a junior 1-bed it feels like a full 1-bedroom apartment. The separated bedroom comfortably fits a Queen bed and opens onto the living room at one end. The apartment is filled with light and very quiet.
The newly updated kitchen features plenty of cabinet space, new shelving, updated appliances, and a brand-new Bosch dishwasher. Adjacent to the bathroom, there is a closet where a washer/dryer can be installed. Storage space is unusually large, with 4 large closets as well as ample space in the basement.
136 West 81st Street is a beautiful prewar brownstone. The New York Times wrote a long article lavishing praise on the street and said, "Don't miss the 1888 house at No. 136, designed by Thom & Wilson. It has some of the most fanciful brownstone carving you are ever likely to see.? Several notable people have lived on the street, including Jerry Seinfeld and Remigio Forte, the famous decorator.
The 4 story, 9-unit building was converted in 1981 and is pet friendly. Literally, just a few steps away are Central Park and Riverside Park, the best shopping and dining on the Upper West Side, and the Museum of Natural History. 136 West 81st is conveniently located next to the B, C, 1, 2, 3 subway lines, and several bus lines, including the Crosstown bus right on W. 81st St.
The Co Op is financially strong with a large reserve and has paid off its underlying mortgage. It therefore benefits from a very low monthly maintenance.
