Opportunity Knocks at 55 Central Park West!

Bring your imagination and your architect to see this expansive one-bedroom apartment in the Art Deco Ghostbusters building. This estate sale home will need work, but it is well worth the effort. The large windows, grand rooms, and beautiful natural light make this a particularly special apartment. Steps away from Central Park and Lincoln Center, this location is superb. There is a formal entry gallery that works well as a dining area and can comfortably accommodate a table for eight and a buffet or built-in millwork. The expansive 15.5' x 25.5' living room with beamed almost 9 foot ceilings has southern and western exposure. The large windows allow plenty of direct light and a charming view of the Gothic steeple of the Holy Trinity Church. There are excellent side views of Central Park and the midtown skyline. The lovely herringbone wood floor in the living room is in good condition. Originally built with a decorative fireplace, we believe there is a good chance the original decorative fireplace may be discovered behind a wall that was put up many years ago. The eat-in kitchen has a large north-facing window and pantry closet that, with board approval, may house a washer/dryer. The kitchen will require a full renovation. The nearly square 16.3' x 16.10' west-facing bedroom can easily fit a king size bed, large dresser and a chair. The en suite bathroom, also windowed, will need a full renovation. The apartment has a walk-in closet in the entry and ample room for bookcases and built-ins throughout. 55 Central Park West, a full-service coop, is pet friendly, allows pieds-a-terre, has a rooftop garden, storage (wait-list), basement laundry, and a children's playroom. This iconic building, designed by Schwartz & Gross, was completed in 1930. Located on Central Park West between 65th and 66th Streets, it is an easy walk to excellent restaurants, movies, music and all forms of public transportation
