Pre-war elegance meets modern convenience in apartment 10E at Chester Court. This 2 bedroom, south facing and sun-drenched 1.5 bath Coop has been cleverly reimagined by the current owner/architect, preserving its pre-war character with modern updates and the feel, flow and visibility of an open plan. The large eat-in kitchen has a custom built-in banquette for casual dining and a tucked away full- size vented Washer/Dryer. The classic entry foyer and adjacent gallery are expansive, providing layered and gracious public spaces with room for home office and library. Directly in line with and open to the foyer, the well-proportioned living room accommodates formal dining. Both bedrooms are generously sized with large closets. Every room has windows, and there are custom built-ins for storage throughout. The living room and primary bedroom are bathed in sunlight that reaches all the way to the kitchen.
Chester Court, designed by Emery Roth and built in 1925, has a multicolor glazed terra cotta facade and elaborately painted Adamesque plasterwork and gold leaf on the lobby ceiling. A wealth of amenities are offered here, including an expansive landscaped and furnished roof deck, fitness center, basketball court/multi-purpose/party room, playroom, laundry and bicycle/storage rooms. The 24/7 doorman, live-in super and building staff are at your service, delivering mail directly to your door. One does not often find such low monthlies (which includes electricity) in a building with this level of service and amenities.
Pied-a-terres, gifting, co-purchases, guarantors and parents buying for children are permitted on a case-by case basis. Pets are welcome here and this exceptional home is located in the heart of the UWS with convenient access to the area's cultural, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, located between Riverside and Central Parks and close to express and local subways.
Pre-war elegance meets modern convenience, beautiful light and flexibility. A standout with great value here!
