More Than A One Bedroom
Come live in 7E at The Rockfall in Columbia Heights. Currently configured as a big one bed, one bath with a large separate kitchen and dining area, this move-in-ready, recently renovated apartment boasts plenty of sunshine and abundant living space. It is situated at the heart of a college neighborhood and adjacent to hubs of public transportation. The apartment is three minutes’ walk to Columbia campus, one minute to the 1 train station and supermarket, and two blocks to beautiful Riverside Park. With its ample space, the current layout could be reimagined as a one bed with a windowed office, or as a cozy two bed.
The foyer -- which has a large coat closet and which the present owners use as a small library/sitting area -- leads past another closet to the kitchen and dining area. Featuring both glass front cabinets and open shelving, the windowed pantry-style kitchen has all new countertops and new appliances and the nice added touch of a ceiling fan. Built-in bookcases in the dining area tie it and the kitchen together in a homey fashion. Two additional ceiling fans, coupled with two large windows in the kitchen, offer excellent air flow throughout the apartment.
Past the dining area are the living room and bedroom, which are both large-windowed, south-facing and amply sized, each containing a new air conditioner and radiator. The wide windows and deep sills are typical of the pre-war detail found throughout the apartment. The living room features a wall of built-in book cases, and the adjacent bathroom is discretely recessed from the kitchen and dining area.
The Rockfall is a full service, financially robust pre-war cooperative, featuring a newly renovated laundry, a fitness room, a lovely roof deck, a recently restored marble and stained glass lobby, and a staff that works diligently to serve the needs of all shareholders. Pied a terres, co-purchasing and guarantors are allowed, and washer/dryers are allowed subject to approval. Meanwhile, Columbia Heights is a vibrant, restaurant-filled neighborhood convenient to both Central Park and Riverside park and intellectually enriched by the world-renowned Columbia University.
