An entry foyer leads to a large living and dining area with soaring 10'5" ceilings, three large windows and an adjacent pass through kitchen. Down two short stairs is the second bedroom, currently used as a library, with 11' ceilings, two windows and walk-in closet. A full bath and pantry complete this level. On the upper level is the master suite with two exposures, a walk-in and en-suite bath. Adjacent to the master suite is an area perfect for home office or nursery. The apartment also features hardwood floors and copious storage. Two glass doors open onto the majestic 21-foot long landscaped terrace with open city views to the Hudson River.
The Schuyler Arms was originally three separate buildings from 1899 to 1904. The Schuyler Arms on 98th Street, with its distinctive open courtyard entrance, was originally operated as a hotel. The buildings - the south one on 98th Street and the two buildings north on 99th Street, were combined and converted to a cooperative in 1981. 305 West 98th Street is full service coop offering 24-hour doorman, live-in resident manager and a laundry room on the main level. There is also a second entrance on 99th street for extra convenience. Maintenance includes cable and internet. There is both indoor and outdoor bike storage (with a wait list). Pets are welcome with board approval. Sorry, no pied a terres, or extra storage available; W/Ds not allowed in the units. A 2% flip tax paid by seller.
Neighborhood shopping includes Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and the West Side Market. Riverside Park's dog runs, playgrounds, bike paths, gardens, tennis courts and the boat basin are all just a short distance away. Convenient public transportation includes the 96th Street subway and cross-town buses are all a few blocks from the apartment.
