Arguably one of the nicest streets on the UWS, located on a tranquil, tree-lined landmark block moments from the Museum of Natural History and Central Park, this duplex apartment truly feels like a house. Enter on the parlor floor. The grand living room has soaring 11-foot ceilings with charming dentil molding, and a wood-burning fireplace - complete with marble mantle. The main floor also has a south-facing bedroom with ample storage all the way up to its lofty ceiling. The meticulously renovated bathroom on this floor is hotel-inspired, with heated floors, sumptuous ceramic tile throughout, and a rainfall shower. The eat-in kitchen is an understated showpiece, with gleaming black-tile floors, granite counters and breakfast bar, Subzero refrigerator, Viking range, a built-in Marvel wine fridge, Miele dishwasher, and a large kitchen pantry that also cleverly conceals a Blomberg Washer Dryer Combo. French doors leading to a private balcony with garden views, the kitchen is also a natural gathering place during parties and informal meals. The second bedroom is upstairs with a charming en-suite bathroom of its own, and a large garden-view balcony perfect for sitting back with a book and a cup of tea. This pet-friendly condo apartment - with convenient bike storage - is perfect for pied-a-terre or full-time living. And with its low monthly carrying costs, it is also attractive as an investment purchase! 105 W 78th Street is just around the corner from neighborhood favorites Shake Shack, Gari Sushi and Zabar's, and convenient to both B/C subways on Central Park West, and the 1/2/3 lines on Broadway.
