440 West End Avenue, 8C - Upper West Side, New York
This "classic 5" coop, with 2-bedrooms, 2-baths, and a formal dining room, in this classic, full-service, doorman building, gets good light, with most windows facing south onto quiet, tree-lined, W 81st Street. The last renovation, many years ago, added new wiring and modified the floor plan to create an eat-in kitchen, larger formal dining room (easily converted to a bedroom), and a more open common area, while maintaining well-sized rooms and a spacious feeling. Please see current, original and alternate floor plans. (Changes to the current floor plan require board approval.) Double-paned windows open easily for cleaning.Original herringbone, oak hardwood floors; high, beamed ceilings, solid core wooden doors with glass & brass knobs, are among the pre-war details in the home. The building, with 24-hr doorman, live-in super, and full-time staff, was built in 1928 by renowned architects Schwartz & Gross, who believed in large, well-designed rooms with sensible floor plans and lots of closets. Fine terrazzo marble floors are throughout the building's common areas, including the elegant, recently renovated lobby. There's a newly remodeled, planted roof-deck with a small garden where you can cut fresh herbs for your next recipe.
