Description

This chic, architecturally designed, West-facing, loft-like home was completely gut renovated with no detail overlooked. The 1 bedroom apartment with bonus home office / den alcove that could be used as a second bedroom features 11 foot ceilings, gorgeous hardwood flooring throughout, a granite kitchen, large open living / dining room, and a spa-like bathroom! The kitchen is outfitted with a Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, a gas oven and stovetop with a rangehood, and a dishwasher. Two unique features of the unit are a large resin door that slides to either close off the kitchen or the office / sleep alcove as needed, and the peek-a-boo wall that separates a corner of the bedroom from the living room. The unit has great closet space, including California Closet fittings, and a massive walk-in storage closet off the home office/sleep alcove. This apartment has 2 through-wall, whisper-quiet A/C units, eliminating the need for window A/C's and taking maximum advantage of the new windows that were installed throughout in 2014. This unique home is unlike any other floorplan in the building as it includes a portion of a chapel used by Nuns, and hasn't been available in years. This historic building was designed by architect James F. Delany in a Romanesque style in 1926. The Hospital of St. Elizabeth of Hungary occupied the building from 1928 to 1981. It was a six-story general hospital with 110 beds. Operated by Franciscan nuns for most of its history, St. Elizabeth’s closed in 1981. The building was sold at auction in 1983, gut renovated and converted into a co-op apartment building in 1985. It has been impeccably maintained since. A newly renovated Lobby and Laundry Room, Bike Storage, 2 Elevators and live-in Superintendant are some of the amenities that make living here a dream. Fort Tryon Park, Bennett Park and the Cloisters are located nearby and the building is close to the express A train, M4 and M98 express buses, shopping, restaurants, and so much more. Pets, pied-a-terres, and co-purchasing are all welcome. Limited subleasing allowed at Board discretion. Approximatey 38% of the Maintenance is tax deductible.
