This is a sponsor-owned apartment and does not require a board package or the co-op board’s approval for sale. This gorgeous and practical renovation of a small six-room apartment into five rooms has created a large, south-facing living and dining space with amazing light and charming views to the south over brownstones. The kitchen is adjacent to the living area and open enough to allow the cook to be part of what’s happening. On the other hand, it’s separate from the living room, so if you don’t want people to see your dirty dishes, this is the perfect layout. The kitchen has granite counters and full-size new Energy Saver appliances, with plenty of cabinet space and lots of counter space. You’ll have the high ceilings of those bygone, prewar days but new fixtures, perfectly smooth walls, new moldings and doors, as well as new plumbing and in-wall wiring, including cable. 302 W. 79th Street is an eight story building in the Riverside Drive-West End block, right next to the beautiful Riverside Park with its lovely gardens, and the nearby River Run playground. It was described in the book Apartment Houses of the Metropolis (1908) as having the “convenience of the latest and best materials used in high class, elevator apartment houses.” The lobby has recently been renovated, and the building has completed many capital improvements in the last few years. There is an excellent live-in super, who will takes packages for you, and a video security system at the door. There is a shaded patio behind the building with plants and tables that makes a nice play space or meeting place for after-work cocktails. A fitness room, bike shed , storage spaces, and a laundry room are also provided. And don’t forget location, location, location. Convenient transportation, great food, Zabar’s, Citarella, Loew’s 83rd St., the Museum of Natural History and NY Historical Society. The #1 train and the 104 bus stop a block away, the cross-town bus takes you to the East Side, and there are plenty of other options.
