PRE-WAR CLASSIC SEVEN A beautiful apartment (circa 1910) located on the lobby level of 490 West End Avenue at the corner of 83rd Street, in one of the most sought after cooperatives on the Upper West Side. This home is being offered for sale for the first time ever. A gorgeous classic 7 apartment, #1D has 11 foot ceilings and a plethora of original details including a gorgeous wood paneled Formal Dining Room, decorative fireplace mantle with filigree framed mirror above it, original 9 foot glass French doors, original antique light fixtures, large wood framed windows, and polished oak parquet floors with mahogany border throughout.
If you love the history of architecture and the charm of townhouse living, but want to be in a full-service building, this is the marriage of both worlds and may just be the home of your dreams.
As you enter the unit you are welcomed by a gracious square foyer which opens up to both the Living Room and the Formal Dining Room. The space is inviting and great for holiday gatherings or entertaining. There is a large windowed eat-in-kitchen with original glass cabinetry. Off of the kitchen is a half bath and an ample sized maid's room which can easily be used as an office or study.
Down a long hallway, which provides total separation from the entertaining space, are three wonderful bedrooms and a windowed hallway bath. There is a Jack and Jill bath between the master and 2nd bedroom and the master bedroom even has an original shaving sink, plus an original built-in wall safe (combination included)--quite charming!

The building is pet friendly, has storage cages, a bicycle room, laundry room, and a gym. Individual washer dryers are allowed, with board approval.
