First Open Houses will be Saturday Sept 10th and Sunday Sept 11th by Appointment.
Welcome to the good life.
A life of ample closet space, open city views, beaming light in every room, and where you call the Upper West Side "Home, Sweet Home".
8B is a quintessential art deco pre-war condo on West 86th Street, just one block from Central Park West. Perched up above, it has open views, faces north on a double wide street, and also faces east and south. This home is dripping with pre-war details such as inlay hardwood floors throughout the whole space, beamed ceilings, an original cast iron tub plus, windows in every room.
Upon entering the home, there is a proper entry foyer, and unobstructed space between both the dining area and living room. This main, great room, is large enough for not only entertaining but also designing a home office nook. The windows in the living room face north onto a double wide street, with views of iconic buildings like the El Dorado, and Central Park West. Given the streetscape all views and light is strongly considered protected.
The kitchen has a wide window with southern light, polished granite countertops, refinished shaker wood cabinets that reach ceiling height, plus all well known stainless steel appliances which include a, Sub-Zero fridge, Miele dishwasher, and Wolf gas oven/stove top.
Both bedrooms are tucked away from the living/entertainment space. The primary bedroom has a marble accented bathroom en suite with a standing shower, chrome fixtures. It faces south, and is large enough to hold a king bed plus free standing furniture pieces. The secondary bedroom, the larger of both bedrooms, faces north and also has a bathroom en suite with an original cast iron tub and marble vanity top. The home has modern designer light fixtures installed in both bedrooms, hallways, and entrance ways.
There are five deep closets, all outfitted with interior lights and the Elfa storage system. In addition, more storage was added through a floor to ceiling built-in wood cabinet along the dining room wall which will remain with the sale of this home.
* There is a $248.39 monthly assessment to build up the building's reserve funds.*
Need more storage?! The building has bike and cage storage for an additional cost. There is also an above ground laundry room that opens on to a community patio and garden, plus a full time doorman and live-in super. The building is zoned for PS 166 The Richard Rodgers School of Arts ('0K', '01', '02', '03', '04', '05', 'SE'). It is located two blocks from the C,B, A, 1 and 2 subway lines as well as the M86 crosstown bus.
