Any Columbia students out there in search of summer housing? This charming apartment, from the prewar cooperative 609 West 114th Street, is now renting. Besides the great Morningside Heights locale, a half block from the campus and a half block from Riverside Park, you get interior details like 10-foot ceilings, crown moldings and French doors. A corner location and windows everywhere you look stream in sunlight throughout the day. Although in a co-op building this apartment has been rented out for years, and was last asking $2,900 a month in 2015.
It’s a pretty simple layout, with an open living/dining/kitchen area right next to the bedroom. The living space has windows in every direction, giving it a feeling of airy spaciousness. According to the listing, the kitchen was updated with new stainless steel appliances that include a dishwasher.
The bedroom is separated from the living room by French doors. Although it doesn’t have a closet, there are two closets lining the entry hall.
The building has a common outdoor space for residents, as well as a newly renovated lobby, laundry, elevator and part-time doorman.
Known as Heathcote Hall, this nine-story brick building was built in 1911 and converted to 63 co-op apartments in 1988. Because of its proximity to Columbia University, rentals are common in the building–there’s another available asking $4,995 per month.
