When you’ve got a recently- and well-renovated three-bedroom co-op on the Upper West Side, a block from Central Park with low monthly fees, and it’s under $1 million, it’s pretty safe to say “this won’t last!” This fresh-faced, turn-key, pre-war home at 113 West 96th Street was just listed at $985,000, and while there are pros and cons, it looks like a super-comfortable place to live in a classic Manhattan neighborhood that gets an A-plus for convenience.

There are a few caveats (though we’re guessing there are plenty for whom they won’t be any sort of deterrent). The apartment is a fifth floor walk-up, so while that means it gets terrific sunlight, the stair-averse are going to be bummed. It’s definitely one of those railroad apartments where, to get around the inconvenience of having to pass through rooms, a narrow hallway was created. This looks like a spacious enough version, but you’re not going to get completely away from that configuration.

But the floor-through space has a lot going for it. It recently received a detailed renovation including new hardwood floors, new plumbing, and new electrical wiring. A chic, modern open kitchen complements the large living space. It features a wide breakfast bar, white Caesarstone countertops, hardwood cabinet accents, and high-end appliances, including a Miele washer/dryer (so no laundry up and down five flights).

The entry foyer and living space offer plenty of room to spread out and have a family sing-along. Ten-foot ceilings make every room seem more spacious.

The layout does a great job separating the bedrooms from the living and dining areas, which is always a plus (especially if you’re trying to sleep during the family sing-along). A big, bright master suite gets large custom closets. Bathrooms feature glass mosaic tile, an enclosed rain shower, a soaking tub and Duravit sinks and toilets.

The small middle bedroom, if not needed as such, would make a pretty amazing walk-in closet (especially since the other large bedroom doesn’t appear to have its own closet). This small room is currently being used as a cute home office.

The location is minutes from Central Park, subways and amenities like Whole Foods and Birch Coffee. So this apartment may, in fact, be “everything you have been waiting for!” Unfortunately, you may have a lot of company.
