Totally unique, the private third floor at 172 West 82nd Street seamlessly blends open loft-style living with pre-war charm. Two easy flights up, 3AB is a stunning apartment with ceilings that soar over 10' high, and a 30' wide great room with two dramatic wood-burning fireplaces, one at each end and two small south facing terraces, plenty big for a cafe table, chairs and your morning coffee. The master and second bedrooms are sunny and spacious with "just enough" exposed brick detailing and six over-sized bedroom windows that look out on fairy tale views of the classic brownstone tree-lined street. Made possible by the combination of two adjacent Renaissance Revival brownstones into one boutique eight-unit co-op, the apartment has over 1,600 Sf of glorious airy loft-style space - and all on one floor! Just off the main room, there are two additional areas, making for a very flexible floorplan. Currently, one is used as an office and the other as a workout area. The alternative floorplan provided demonstrates how you could make one of them into a third bedroom. One bath is brand new and the other is recently done and outfitted with a custom steam shower. There is exceptional storage throughout including six closets, three of them walk-in, and a fully equipped laundry room. The smartly designed kitchen has stainless steel appliances and an inviting breakfast counter. Situated between Central Park and Riverside with prime access to all the retail and dining on Amsterdam, this is a very special apartment in a boutique co-operative in the heart of the UWS. Not available for pied-a-terre use. Pets are welcome.
