Tucked away in the prime line of the captivating Castle Village co-op at 260 Cabrini Boulevard in Hudson Heights, this two-bedroom home is blessed with high-bluff vistas and a riot of colorful interiors that qualifies it as, to quote the listing, a “residential work-of-art.” Even without its definitely-non-beige decor, the light and views in every room make this unique home a one-of-a-kind oasis even in a city of millions,

In the Upper Manhattan neighborhood of Hudson Heights with its unforgettable views of the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge, the almost-well-kept-secret that is the Castle Village complex is equally unforgettable. The award-winning five-building cooperative occupying the highest bluff above the river on seven acres of manicured grounds was designed by architect George Fred Pelham Jr. in 1939 as a hybrid of quaint “castle” detail and modern pre-war design.

This completely modernized apartment reflects the creativity and passion of its current owners, painted in bold candy colors. Fixtures and finishes were designed for 21st century living, with top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen and baths. A spacious living room anchors the home’s entertaining areas. Adjacent the kitchen, a large open dining room could be divided into two rooms.

Two large bedrooms complete the home. A spacious master suite has an en-suite bath that follows the apartment’s spirit with clean, graphic lines and pops of color.

The home’s current owner, who describes herself as a “writer/artist/curator/collector and mentor” and self-described artiste explains the art she creates as “childish, colourful, shamanistic, wild and anarchic,” and it’s evident that her own art and collections have informed this colorful home.

Outside the door, the complex is blessed with walking paths, playgrounds, community gardens, lawn chairs and benches, all accompanied by daily sunsets over the George Washington Bridge. Castle Village amenities include a full staff, an indoor childrens’ playroom, community room, laundry and roof deck for each building, storage cages, bike storage, an exercise room and a garage. And it’s only 20 minutes from Midtown on the subway.
