Exceptional One-Bedroom Duplex Apartment with Large Private Deck

A remarkable penthouse duplex apartment in a landmark Upper West Side brownstone on a highly desirable block in the West 80s, between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive. The apartment is quiet, gets great light all year round, and has plenty of storage space. Huge living room with comfortable seating, great writing desk by one of three huge windows facing onto a quiet street, and Apple TV can be projected along an entire wall. Fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher, coffeemaker and Nespresso machine as well as a half-bath on the same floor. Upstairs is a spacious bedroom with queen-size bed, club chair, and walk-in closet. There is a full bathroom with shower and tub, sink and vanity as well as brand-new (May 2017) full-size washer/dryer. Through a sliding screen door from the bedroom, walk out to a massive and enclosed private deck with chairs, tables, outdoor lights and charcoal grill. The patio faces the back of other brownstones, which means it is both very private and very quiet. A/C on both levels.

The apartment is ideal for a single person or a couple.

Close to lots of green space: Riverside Park and the Hudson River Greenway as well as Central Park and the Museum of Natural History. A bounty of grocery stores within easy walking distance: Zabar's, Fairway, Trader Joe's, Gristedes, and smaller markets. Restaurants and bars and shops abound on nearby Broadway, Amsterdam and Columbus.

5 minute walk to the 1 train; 15 minute walk to the 2/3 or B/D trains. 15 minute bike ride or subway ride to Columbia University. 35 minute train ride to NYU.
