If you’re cool with a studio, here’s your chance to live just off Central Park in a classic Upper West Side co-op… for only $489,000. This lovely residence is located at The Bancroft, also just steps from the West 72nd Street subway station. It’s got two large, arched windows that bring in plenty of light, along with classic pre-war details.
There’s a large closet off the entrance, but this is the only one in the unit. Also off the entrance is the newly renovated kitchen. Do note there is no oven, and you’ll need to bring a mini-fridge.
The main room is about 225 square feet. It has hardwood floors, a beautiful decorative fireplace, and attractive moldings.
The bathroom is also renovated and is a comfortable size.
As mentioned, the building is just steps from the iconic Dakota, the entrance to Central Park that leads right to Strawberry Fields, and the C and B trains at 72nd Street. It’s also a quick walk to all the shops and restaurants along Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, the Museum of Natural History, and the 1, 2, and 3 trains at 72nd and Broadway. Built in 1925, the 16-story co-op has a total of 140 apartments. There’s a full-time doorman and laundry in the building.
