Distinguished 8-room residence overlooking leafy West 98th Street and spanning the building’s entire 85-foot west facade. An attractive combination of elegance, affordability, and room to grow on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Perfect for entertaining with its long entrance foyer, south-facing Living Room, original wood-paneled Dining Room, and enjoining open Gallery. The large Dining Room includes french doors and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows with decorative ironwork juliet balcony. Adjacent to the spacious chef’s Kitchen is the second Living Room/ Library with convenient Powder Room. The south-facing Master Suite includes a cleanly renovated Master Bath with double sink. Each of the four well-proportioned Bedrooms include excellent storage and easily fit their own king-sized beds. Plaster cove-moldings and parquet floors with decorative inset borders run throughout the many rooms and hallways. The home’s second entrance easily allows for multiple generations or private home office for remote working. Despite its generous size - 4 true Bedrooms, 2 Living Rooms, original Dining Room, and 14 closets- the apartment carries a maintenance of just $2,987 per month. A separate special assessment of $422.40 remains in place through December 2022, for already-completed Local Law 11 repointing. Impeccably attended-to by its longtime live-in resident manager, 255 West 98th includes a manicured roof deck with seating, as well as recently restored lobby and elevator. Bike room and laundry room, with private storage available. Pets welcome upon board approval.
