APARTMENT:The perfect starter apartment. This a high ceiling, comfortable cornered two bedroom apartment with TONS OF LIGHT on the top floor of a prewar elevator Condo building. Open views to the east give great morning light as the apartment clears the adjacent buildings. Great oak floors throughout and a fairly newly renovated windowed eat in kitchen make this an excellent choice for young couples and professionals. Buyers should consider proposing to buy roof space above the apartment (No guarantees made. Must be negotiated with the board of directors). The very low common charges and tax abatement make this an excellent investment as even with 80% financing the rent from this apartment can cover monthly costs and the mortgage.LAYOUT:Step into a large square living room. To the left is the kitchen with adjacent dining area, making for an excellent entertaining space. 2 equal sized bedrooms distribute at the far end of the living room, each with a double closet, and 2 corner windows. 3 additional closets in the apartment make for excellent storage. 8 windows on 3 exposures ensure light, air flow and excellent feng shui. LOCATION:It is hard to beat living just 4 blocks from Central Park. To really appreciate the quality of this location take an afternoon hike into the North Woods, where you will forget that you are on the island of Manhattan as you wander through the 90 acres of woods where no building can be seen in any direction. Watch the hawks fly overhead as you climb to the top of the Great Hill before walking down to the Pool where the fresh water breeze wafts through the weeping willows refreshing your spirit. Follow the water along the Loch as you hear the stream rushing through the Ravine. As you follow the water out of the woods you will find yourself at Lasker Rink and Pool where you can either take a swim or go ice skating with your darling. If, however, you are in the mood for walking, you can continue to stroll along the Harlem Meer and finally end at the one of the crowing jewels of Central Park and New York City, the Conservatory Garden, where you can appreciate a distillation of the wonder of landscaping that is Central Park. BUILDING:Beautiful ornate, Carved limestone and brick. Lobby and hallways throughout the building are extraordinary and impeccable condition.TRANSPORTATION: ONLY 2 blocks from the 2, 3 express train which will take you downtown in no time. JUST 3 stops from Times Square, where you can redirect to anywhere you need to go. The crosstown bus on 110th St will take you east or west. If you prefer to bike, the Park offers a perfect distribution axis, and the bike room in the basements ensures you need not worry about keeping safe your trusty steed. Harlem is a great place to have a car: Easy street parking. Both the West Side Highway and FDR are easily accessible. All Metro North trains stop at 125th and Park making for an easy getaway to the refreshing greenery of the Hudson Valley and Connecticut.
