For $1.25M, Juliet balconies and an enchanted garden create romance on the Upper West Side
This bright and cozy garden duplex co-op at 24 West 69th Street on the Upper West Side has pre-war details like high beamed ceilings, built-in bookshelves, crown moldings, French doors and two Juliet balconies; but it’s the 731-square-foot private enchanted garden just outside those French doors that makes this one-bedroom-convertible-to-two such a charmer.
Beyond the apartment’s ground-floor entry hallway you’ll find 1,200 square feet of interior space, including a generous helping of bonus space on the lower level.
On the main floor is a living room and formal dining room; a colorful kitchen has both personality and all the equipment you’ll need to make it your creative culinary HQ, including lots of cabinets, a funky bohemian tiled backsplash and cheery bright red countertops.
The home’s master bedroom is exceedingly spacious at 16 by 18 feet, with an en-suite bath and plenty of closet space.
The apartment faces the back of the building so there’s plenty of peace and quiet as well as views of your private back garden from the windows. The landscaped multi-level space is ready for gardening, entertaining and dining out of doors.
Descend a spiral staircase to the home’s lower level and you’ll have a large den with a full bath and washer/dryer and a study/office. This space could also serve as guest quarters, a playroom or any number of other uses. This 19-unit, nine-story elevator co-op is just half a block from Central Park if your garden paradise leaves you wanting more,
