A wonderfully well thought out and executed combining of two Art Deco apartments has created a unique, magnificent house-like three-bedroom inside a New York City Co-op. When you walk in youll feel like youre in a home.
The first floor of the residence is the common area, consisting of an expansive living/dining room including a wet bar. The Kosher kitchen is extra large and gets plenty of light, which showcases the single-slab granite counter tops. All appliances are stainless steel, including dishwashers and ovens. A central island provides for more than enough work space while allowing for the flow of all who like to spend time in the kitchen--which is just about everyone. The original full bath on this level has been modified for being in the common space but can easily be converted back to a second full bath.
Often the biggest challenge in the creation of a duplex apartment is the stairs to transition from one floor to the next. In this case the challenge was well met: wide, easily-transversed stairs connect the floors, and in case there is heavy lifting involved - the elevator is just across the hall from the apartment's entries.
The upper floor of the apartment is the private area consisting of three large bedrooms, tremendous closet space for each of the bedrooms and in unit laundry. All bedrooms have abundant light from large windows, including the corner windows the building has replaced with dual pane windows.
100 Bennett is an Art Deco building built in 1939, with a classically-appointed lobby, two elevators, bike room, live-in Super and childrens play area.
Although no one can say that the area is a hidden" gem anymore, Hudson Heights is still a gem and a quiet enclave on the island of Manhattan. The street layout essentially creates one huge cul-de-sac that quiets the area by calming the traffic, while there is still immediate access to the A-train running below the neighborhood. Or take a short walk to the 1 train and bus lines that head down the East or West sides.
There are numerous restaurants and lots of shops close by for the daily sundries. Lastly - you have the river views and fields of Fort Tryon Park, the art of The Metropolitans Cloisters Museum and there is easy access to the Hudson River Greenway for cycling and running enthusiasts.
