Newly, renovated, this stunning, light-filled home offers dramatic, direct views of the Park, Natural History Museum, and New York's skyline.

Entering this exquisite property through a pristine foyer, you will arrive in a large, quiet and beautiful corner living room with oversized windows that offer stunning south and west-facing views and radiant sunlight. With plenty of space to entertain, you'll also have a unique perspective of the surrounding architecture, nature, and -- of course -- local events such as the Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Off from the living area is a separate dining space, also with park views, that can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. The dining area leads to a perfectly arranged kitchen, with granite countertops and brand-new premium appliances and fixtures.

The bedroom is also filled with light, with room for a king bed and ample space for storage. The bathroom, which sits behind the bedroom, is an exquisite, bright, and relaxing space, with gorgeous Bianco Dolomiti Italian tiles and luxurious fixtures from Kohler.

The entire apartment has been thoroughly and thoughtfully renovated, with hardwood floors, new lighting and new fixtures throughout. The result is a premium, contemporary space, that will make a distinctive home for a distinguished buyer.

This ideal location at the heart of the Upper West Side is steps away from Central Park, the Delacorte Theater and numerous local restaurants, bars and boutiques. The vibrant neighborhood is ideally located for local schools, places of worship, and community attractions such as the weekly farmers market.
