145 West 79th Street Unit: 8A, New York City, NY 10024

Welcome to this pristinely renovated, mint-condition one-bedroom in the prestigious Manchester House that offers an exceptional blend of timeless New York charm and contemporary luxury, all within a highly sought-after location.

This coveted "A" line floor plan flows elegantly, reflecting the design aesthetic and exacting proportions of the building's renowned original architect Emery Roth. The foyer introduces you to a south-facing large living room with low built-in walnut bookcases and an expansive view across 79th Street. Natural light streams in from the double-paned Skyline windows in the living room and bedroom, creating a cheerful ambiance throughout the day. The large bedroom easily provides for a king-sized bed and has a walk-in closet.

From either the living room or the bedroom hallway, one enters a "real" kitchen, uniquely and exquisitely designed with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf range that is vented to the outside, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher. The conveniently placed Kohler farmhouse sink is paired with a Perrin and Rowe Edwardian-style bridge faucet. There is both ample countertop real estate and storage (including a floor-to-ceiling storage closet) to satisfy the discerning home gourmet chef. The kitchen is truly special with sumptuous Brazilian quartzite countertops and stunning Waterworks hand-made ancient Celtic 'circle of life' decorative tile backsplash. The kitchen casement window looks north onto a garden view of neighboring brownstones.

The spa-like bathroom features floor-to-ceiling honed Calacatta marble illuminated by the northern-facing casement window. The bathroom features Kallista fixtures by Laura Kirar as well as the iconic Vir Stil vanity that artfully optimizes functionality and storage. An added touch of luxury is the Lefroy Brooks wall-mounted towel warmer. As in the kitchen, all hardware is polished nickel.

The apartment is as beautiful and elegant as it is warm and welcoming with: three generous closets; skim-coated walls; custom doors with unlacquered brass hinges; two-sided beveled glass kitchen doors; Baldwin crystal door knobs with polished nickel escutcheons; restored original sconces; quartzite window sills; and, beamed ceilings.

Manchester House--built in the late 1920's by Emery Roth--offers the convenience of two elevators, a part-time doorman (16 hours from 8:30 am 12:30 am midnight), a live-in resident manager, laundry on-site, basement and bike storage, and is pet friendly. This well-managed and financially stable co-op permits Pied-a-terre purchasers, guarantors, gifting and sub-letting, the latter after one year with board approval. With an excellent location on the Upper West Side's 79th crosstown street, you are moments away from Central Park (1-1/2 blocks), Riverside Park (4-1/2 blocks), the Museum of Natural History (1/2 block), the 79th Street Greenmarket (1/2 block), world-class dining, shopping, and cultural attractions. Superb public transportation options make exploring the city a breeze.

This is a rare opportunity to make this tranquil and serene "A" line apartment yours, complete with its prime location and merging of old world elegance reimagined with modern comfort.
