Property Description

Gorgeous natural light, architectural detail and ample storage space abound in this meticulously restored 1200 square foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom home in a gorgeous 1890 Upper West Side brownstone boutique cooperative. Bask in the bespoke craftsmanship of a bygone age combining old world charm with contemporary style in this warm and welcoming home filled with stunning millwork, soaring ceilings, exposed brick, gleaming hardwood floors and oversized windows. The spacious and bright living room features a decorative fireplace, and handsomely carved doors reveal extra-large closets. At the opposite end of the home, golden light from a massive skylight beckons you to the breathtaking gourmet kitchen where abundant granite-topped cherry wood cabinetry surrounds a full suite of top-notch stainless steel appliances, including GE refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, a 36-inch vented gas range, double Franke sinks and top quality water purifier. The adjacent dining area is beautifully fashioned with plenty of built in banquette seating with storage below and a nearby china cabinet. Two bedrooms adjoin the delightful and long hallway, filled with nooks and a skylit alcove in the center. The light filled Master Bedroom has an extra large and excellent closet and storage space behind mirrored closet doors. The cozy second bedroom has side by side closets and storage space. The expansive spa bathroom features warm marble-topped vanity cabinetry, a large warm marble enclosed whirlpool tub/shower area with imported fixtures, and a fully vented, stacked LG washer-dryer with storage cabinetry above. Opposite the tub/shower area are fantastic tall storage cabinet units with roll out drawers in one section for your towels and sheets. Beautifully planned as is, this home's generous floor plan could comfortably accommodate a powder room if desired. Enjoy total serenity and comfort in this top-floor walk-up home. Video intercom entry adds safety and security. 202 West 78th Street is a striking bowfront brownstone and brick building constructed in 1890 and converted to cooperative use in 1979.
