Welcome home to 130 West 79th St #14AF, a fully renovated (finished in 2017), high-floor, 3-bed, 3-bath, 3-balcony condo on the UWS that brings together modern-day luxury with iconic views on the most ideally located block in the city. An expansive wall of south-facing windows across the open living room, dining room, and all 3 bedrooms provides wide-open skyline views while streaming in sunlight all day. To experience these views in person is to fully understand their impact: from the 14th floor, overlooking the quaint brownstones of this UWS Landmark District, the completely unobstructed vistas not only inspire awe but also merge NYC's fairytale past with its exciting future, from the turret of the Museum of Natural History (1870) to San Remo Towers (1930) to the modern-day skyscrapers of Billionaire's Row and Hudson Yards. The views are spectacular from inside, but they are even more breathtaking from the home's three private south-facing balconies - one off the primary bedroom suite and two off the main living space.
The thoughtful merging of apartments A and F took advantage of a redundant hallway to create a large private storage room (accessible directly on the floor) while also expanding the kitchen beyond what's typically found in the AF combination to create a true chef's dream: Wolf range, hood and microwave; 42" SubZero fridge/freezer; Miele dishwasher; U-Line wine fridge and white Caeserstone countertops. The kitchen opens seamlessly into the 24-foot long living/dining area via a large bar, creating the perfect open space for entertaining, all with sweeping city views - day and night.
Throughout the home, every detail was meticulously considered: 6" oak floors exude warmth; Rohl fixtures in all three bathrooms and the kitchen bring classic elegance; and custom millwork and built-ins add an extra layer of refinement. The king-sized owner's retreat, with en-suite bathroom, boasts its own private balcony and large walk-in closet (the only of its kind in this combo), while either of the two additional bedrooms will make the perfect home office with incredible views of Midtown. A large laundry room with a Miele washer and dryer, undermount sink, Caeserstone countertops, and ample built-in storage sets this home apart.
130 West 79th St is a pet-friendly, full-service condo building -- with 24-hour doorman, gym, and dry sauna -- located on one of the most convenient blocks in the city. Central Park is your extended backyard just 1 block to the east. If you desire a sunset stroll along the Hudson, head 3 blocks to the west, or enjoy outdoor dining at the numerous restaurants and cafes along Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues. If you are in search of culture, check out The Museum of Natural History just outside your front door - or simply take advantage of its beautiful park grounds for an afternoon picnic. Get your local produce, meat, flowers, and teas at the 79th Street Greenmarket every Sunday. Want to get to another part of town? With easy access to Citibike, Central Park's 58 miles of trails, and the Hudson River Greenway, you have a myriad of scenic options to get around the city; there are also numerous subways and bus lines within 2 blocks. Or how about out of town altogether? 79th Street provides direct access to the West Side Highway and is wide enough to easily load and unload your car. And because 79th Street stops at the Museum of Natural History, it is much quieter than most major crosstown streets.
The importance of loving where you live, access to private outdoor space, light, and open air, and proximity to the expanse of Central Park has never been more in-focus than it is today.
Having it all in NYC is no longer a fairytale.
