Whether you like inspirational quotes on the walls or puppets bungee jumping in front of windows overlooking Central Park, you’ll love this two bedroom, two bathroom Upper West Side prewar co-op in The Bolivar. In fact, inspiration and celebration are rather fitting when you consider the one-of-a-kind nature of this beautiful pad in a building that shares a name with a South American liberator. The Central Park views from this apartment are so mesmerizing, even the Queen of England would have to stop and catch her breath. And by the looks of these pictures, she may have. So, let’s take a quick little tour, so you can see exactly why it might be well worth it to “skid in broadside” to claim this $2.9 million prize.
Cookie cutter will be the last term on your mind when you take a look around this loft-like unit. For starters, this may be an Upper West Side residence but it’s completely in touch with its downtown side. Beautiful beamed ceilings with track lighting adorn the inside of the home while giant picturesque windows frame the iconic park for you and your puppets alike. In fact, all the main rooms in the property are treated to breathtaking park views. Now just imagine what that sunrise would look like.
To accommodate the spectacular viewing potential of each room, this contemporary renovation placed the bedrooms on either side of the open kitchen/dining/living area. One bedroom is on an elevated platform with wood paneling on the walls concealing a ton of closet space, along with a cute quote saying, “Together… our favorite place”. There’s also a pretty nice en suite boasting a shower and Jacuzzi tub. Best of all, the two bedrooms have retractable walls allowing them to open up to the core area, creating one massive entertaining space. We would ask the colorful statue of the couple dancing the Argentine tango what they think, but we’re pretty sure the dancing says it all.
Whether you choose to jump, to shout, to dance, or sit still and drink in the view, there’s no question this place is filled with reasons—and ways—to celebrate. And you know what we say to that? “Wow, what a ride!”
