This oversized 850sf 1BR is nestled on the 5th floor of a beautifully maintained prewar elevator coop which is a rare example of the art deco period. Such unusual features include an enormous sunken living room with wrought-iron railings, a separate dining foyer, abundant closets and high 9' ceilings. Entire home is flooded with light thanks to dual southern and northern exposures; there is a window in every room, including kitchen, bathroom, and dining gallery. Apartment has been completely renovated with top quality materials and a strikingly modern design. Kitchen sports Caeserstone countertops, high gloss white cabinetry, clear glass backsplash, and all appliances by Fisher & Paykel. Bathroom houses a spa-like shower stall with hand laid Pizzara tile paneling, rainshower head, and brushed nickel fixtures. Oak hardwood floors have been refinished and restained. 125 West 96th is an intimate cooperative with new elevator, a live-in super, laundry room, bike room. Remarkably well located a block from multiple express subway lines, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx on Columbus Avenue. Sorry, no pets.
