The textbook definition of New York charm, this lovingly designed 2BR/1BA in the heart of Morningside Heights offers character in spades, from exposed brick to French doors to custom built-ins plus flooding sunshine and a high-end kitchen renovation that makes daily chores and frequent hosting an equal pleasure.
On the second floor of an intimate self-managed walk-up co-op, Unit 2B's high ceilings bounce light from the living room's three east-facing windows you can see the trees of Morningside Park just across Amsterdam Ave and a winged layout offers privacy, with a large and peaceful queen sized primary bedroom well-separated from the living area, and the secondary bedroom equally ideal when used as a den, library, or home office.
The owners' thorough and thoughtful renovation includes a chef's kitchen with island, custom Liebherr refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and Bertazzoni range, and copious cabinetry and counter space. Refinished hardwood floors make an elegant base and custom, designer lighting throughout (including Flos Glo Ball chandeliers in the dining area) conveys with sale. Multiple closets, plus built-ins in the living room and bath, take care of all your daily storage needs, while a deeded storage unit in the basement adds hefty seasonal storage. In-building laundry, free bike storage, and a pet-friendly board that welcomes guarantors, gifting, and subletting after two years complete the perfectly livable New York picture.
You're also placed in a perfectly livable New York location, nestled between Morningside and Riverside Parks and surrounded by restaurants and coffeeshops (Max Caffe is just downstairs, and Pisticci, Massawa, Community Food and Juice, The Hungarian Pastry Shop, and Jin Ramen are a few of the many highlights within a few short blocks), abutting the verdant campuses of Columbia, Barnard, and JTS (and two locations of one of the best bookshops in the city, Bookculture and Bookculture on Broadway, plus two local library branches). The Columbia Farmer's Market is just a few blocks away which also means easy access to composting and clothing recycling and there's a pickup location for Corbin Hill Food Project at the Riverside Church, if you're so inclined. And if you do ever feel the need to leave the neighborhood, the 1 train and A/B/C/D are a five minute walk away.
Gifts and small pets welcome. No pied--terres. Proudly represented by the Jane Advisory, this vibrant home is available now.
