A rare and exceptional offering of a high-floor, sundrenched 2-bedroom 2-bathroom corner apartment with sweeping open city views and vistas of the Hudson River in an architecturally glorious full-service cooperative on the Upper West Side. Residence 13A at 617 West End Avenue is a beautifully apportioned and regal home seamlessly uniting the grace and charm of prewar architecture enhanced by modern conveniences.

Located off a semi-private landing, a stately living room faces East, suspended above West End Avenue adorned with a pair of oversized six-over-six double-hung windows and glorious high beamed ceilings with decorative crown molding overhead. Enveloped in elegant French doors, sunlight pours in from all directions to complement the handsome millwork and built-in bookcases framing its entry. To the South, a gracious dining area sits adjacent the kitchen and offers the same avenue exposure as the living room.

The oversized custom eat-in kitchen is a chef's dream and equipped with a 32" Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer with double freezer drawer and ice maker, Viking double oven, Thermador 4-burner gas range, Bosch full-sized dishwasher and GE Spacemaker microwave. Abundant counter space is further expanded by a custom center island topped with Brazillian quartzite where you can also enjoy a drink or a bite while basking in Eastern light from a pair of graceful six-over-six windows. Custom cabinetry provides plenty of storage space supplemented by two additional pantry closets immediately adjacent, the larger of which can accommodate a washer/dryer.

Two king-size bedrooms occupy the Northeast corner of the building with serene open city views to the North in both, capturing vistas of the Hudson River while looking down on the trees lining West End Avenue and the myriad of charming prewar townhouses and apartment buildings that characterize the Upper West Side. The primary bedroom commands the building's Northeast corner enjoying an additional eastern exposure down 90th Street. A rarity for this line, an en-suite full-bathroom has been added and is appointed with a stall shower and honed marble countertops. The primary suite currently has a pair of pocket doors to the living room for those who wish to instead enjoy additional living space that can also serve as a guest room. The second bedroom sits at the westernmost end of the apartment, outfitted with two sizable customized closets and serviced by a separate full bathroom in the bedroom corridor. The second bathroom has a massive window with the same open views North as the bedrooms, bathtub/shower and honed marble countertop as well.

Located on the corner of West End Avenue and 90th Street, 617 West End Avenue is a landmarked Neo-Georgian prewar cooperative built in 1924 by the renowned architects Schwartz & Gross, a prolific firm credited with building over 180 buildings in Manhattan alone. This 16-story brick building features a handsome limestone base and impeccably preserved period lobby with ornamental plaster ceilings, inlaid floors and mahogany clad interiors. 617 West End Avenue has a full-service staff, including a full-time doorman/elevator operator and live-in resident manager, and offers additional laundry room, storage assigned to each unit and a bicycle room. W/D permitted with board approval. Pets are welcome.
