    Property Details

    Terraced condos on the Upper West Side are a relative rarity. Finding one with a practical, direct living terrace is unique indeed; therefore, we feel privileged to represent just such a Unicorn. Since it was constructed in 1985, the Park Belvedere has been one of the most desired condo buildings in the area. The 14th floor, with its perfectly proportioned set-back terraces, is the most coveted floor at 101 West 79th Street. With only four apartments on the 14th floor, 14E's characteristics make it the most desirable home on the floor. 14E is the only unit on the floor with both North and South facing windows in the living room, as well as in the kitchen & dining area, and the bedroom. These vistas open the home in a way that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. The direct living terrace can be easily accessed through two separate, oversized 3-panel sliding doors, making the flow between indoor and outdoor living effortless. The wrap-around design of the terrace awards the owner with three distinct and separate areas to enjoy outdoor life; one for cooking, one for dining, and one for the all-important relaxation. Each space offers unique views, great privacy, and enough width to make the flow between these areas seamless. As the most Western apartment on the floor, it also has the benefit of only one adjoining wall with a neighbor. Within 14E, that wall is taken up by the Laundry, the staircase, and the two full bathrooms (one on each floor), creating extreme levels of privacy. There is also no apartment above you. Another often overlooked benefit of 14E's location is that this home is the only unit on the floor away from Columbus Avenue and the street noise it produces. This, along with the terrace buffer, the plants in the automatically irrigated planters, and some architectural tricks, mean this apartment is pin-drop quiet. The apartment itself was conceived by the developer as a two-bedroom; however, the current owner converted the lower floor bedroom into a dining area that opens up to the kitchen and living room. During that conversion, they opened up the wall to the terrace and relocated the ac unit to a less conspicuous spot inside a built-in bar. The result is a living floor with an almost loft-like open feel, made all the more impressive by the vast areas of glass everywhere, offering perfect views north and south from every square inch and blending indoor and outdoor life. The "industrial chic" polished concrete floor enhances this feeling of an open loft even more. The semi-open kitchen is a study in European efficiency and sensibility, not wasting any space from the dining and living areas; it has everything one expects to find in the "Gourmet Kitchen," although the first part depends more on the cook than the appliances. Self-cleaning wolf range with six burners, 30" built-in German refrigerator, dishwasher, deep sink, a pull-out pantry with hidden convection oven/microwave, and a large window with unobstructed North/West views. The Entire upstairs is allocated to the primary bedroom, at 14'x20'7"; it is generously enough proportioned; it would deserve the moniker "Master bedroom" if that were still used. The North and South walls each have oversized windows, adding to this home's feeling of airiness. But with a grey-colored, wall-to-wall rug hand-loomed in Tibet, the ambiance contrasts the lofty downstairs. The Primary suite also has an ample walk-in closet, separate shoe closet, additional storage, and an en-suite windowed bathroom complete with floor heating, a door-less walk-in shower, heated towel rack, and hidden shelving behind the mirrors...Oh, and it has a hidden safe. This smart home has a fully integrated Latch lock, hidden thermostats, and speakers throughout for Sonos and TV. Additional niceties that will make living here a pleasure are a vast storage area for suitcases, under the stairs, a wine closet, Forbes+Lomax chrome light switches and dimmers, and Italian faucets.
