We often feature shiny new developments as our monthly gems, but they’re not the only kind of real estate that inspires us. This month, we want to highlight a listing of ours that has truly caught our attention: apartment 12C at 135 W 79th Street.
There are many reasons why we’re enamored with this 1-bedroom gem. First is the combination of 10-foot ceilings and abundance of natural sunlight that floods the apartment. Second are the custom beams and dark hardwood floors which create a wonderful blend of elegance and pre-war charm, augmented by exposed brick walls and custom beamed millwork. (Those looking for modern touches will be pleased by its windowed kitchen featuring dark granite countertops, a Viking four-burner stove-top and a Sub-Zero refrigerator, among other updated features) Third is the location of the Lyons, which is on one of the most desirable blocks on the Upper West, moments away from Central Park. Last, but most definitely not least, is the flexible co-op policy that allows both pied-a-terres and pets.
The combination of these features have created a special place in our heart for this listing, that we’re certain will create incredible memories for the next owner to live here!
