Property Description

Welcome to Residence 21, a turnkey home that checks a lot of boxes. Day-long, light pours in through windows, framing coveted views of Morningside Park. Check. Serene, and spacious? Got that. This 2BR/CONV3 features a separate dining room and a bright, west-facing living room that can easily revert to its previous form as a king-sized third bedroom (the chosen layout in other front-facing units). A thorough top-to-toe renovation lovingly retained many of the pre-war unit's original features—including a vintage fireplace, restored radiators, and high ceilings—while upgrading plumbing and electrical throughout. With solid 3/4" thick maple plank floors underfoot, recessed lighting on dimmers in every room, and a smart home system that controls air conditioning, window shade, ceiling fans, a chandelier, and pendant lighting; the result is a clean, calm, and gracious space that is a pleasure to call home. The unit is currently configured with two bedrooms, both equally pin-drop quiet and private. One is queen-sized; the second, smaller room works well as a guest bedroom but also as a home office or gym. In the re-imagined, monochrome kitchen, style and function are served. A deep, double-wide chef's sink, Caesarstone countertops, stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher, and in-unit laundry promise to make household chores and hosting duties easier. The full bath renovation includes classic marble floors with new sink and vanity fixtures, allowing for added storage. There's no waiting for an elevator. Just one flight up to this second-floor unit in a boutique-sized, virtual doorman building. Here, you're walking distance to the esteemed campuses of Columbia, Barnard, and JTS. Just a four-block walk to the A/B/C/D, 2/3, and M60 to LaGuardia at 125th Street. Be midtown within fifteen minutes, in one stop. 72 Morningside Ave. is a professionally managed HDFC with a high-income cap—165% of the area median income. For household size: one person ($179,355), two people ($205,095), and three people ($230,670). There's deeded storage space and free bike storage. Gifting, subletting, and cats are allowed. But, sorry, no dogs, investments, nor pied-à-terres. Nestled along Morningside Park, with its weekend farmers' markets, playgrounds, winding paths, and cascading waterfall, this locale is idyllic. Enjoy Harlem restaurants (Clay, Vinateria), bars (Sugar Monk, Mess Hall), coffeeshops (Double Dutch, I Like It Black), and grocery stores (including Lidl, Lincoln Market, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s). So many boxes checked! This lovely home is a wish list fulfilled.
