Morningside Heights, considered by many to be the homey Manhattan neighborhood, is steeped in history and one of the most desirable areas for families in the city. Sandwiched between the Upper West Side and Harlem and running from West 110th Street to West 125th Street, the neighborhood offers an abundance of green space, from the iconic Morningside and Riverside Parks to the manicured lawns of Columbia and Barnard. Paired with the university students’ energy and the area’s many family friendly-amenities, it’s the perfect spot for both children and adults to live and play.
On the east corner of Broadway and Cathedral Boulevard, is 545 West 110th Street, a modern condo building built-in 2006. This 11-story limestone building features 55 apartments, many of them with outdoor space. It is one of the few condominiums in the area.
A must-see is the glorious #8C, the corner residence sun-flooded and encompassed with a lush garden-like terrace. Spacious, airy, and lofty, this home is set up as a three-bedroom/three-bath home; it was originally a four-bedroom/four-bath and can be easily converted back while maintaining copious living space. Spread out over nearly 2400 square feet inside; the interiors have been completely customized.
The open chef’s kitchen boasts a 48” Sub-Zero refrigerator and a six-burner Wolf range, plus fabulous prep, and cooking space. Like all rooms in this apartment, it has open exposures onto the terrace and great light. Adjacent to the kitchen is a butler’s pantry with wine storage and a washer dryer. The grand, corner living room and dining room have sliding doors onto the terrace where there are spots to cook, dine, and relax. This space is all bathed in South and West light.
Three large bedrooms each feature their own renovated bathroom and generous closet space, and each opens onto the terrace. The luxurious primary suite is South facing and boasts an enormous bedroom with a sitting area and five-fixture Calcutta gold bathroom with double vanity, glass shower, and deep soaking tub. In the bedroom wing, there is also a bonus office area. This apartment is complete with central air conditioning, nearly floor to ceiling windows everywhere, and new hardwood floors.
The phenomenal wrap terrace has a grill powered by natural gas direct from the kitchen, plus electricity and a watering system to maintain the plants and mature trees. The terrace is lush and inviting and must be seen to appreciate!
545 West 110th Street offers a gym, terrace, playroom, bike room, storage, and garage. Full-time doormen and a resident manager are on-site. Located in fabulous Morningside Heights, it is convenient to the best transportation, and great restaurants. Price: $5.475 million.
