Sunny Junior-4 One Block from Inwood Hill Park This sun-bathed corner unit in a noted Art Deco building is truly a special apartment. Overlooking a tree-lined street, this fourth-floor gem, just a block from Inwood Hill Park, is the perfect retreat from city life. This is a large, well laid out, 'Junior 4' in pristine condition. The 'bonus' room, just off the living room, is an unopened box of possibilities. Use it for entertaining, a home office, even a nursery. Who couldn't use a little extra space these days. The moment you cross the threshold, you'll know you are in for a treat. The grain of the perfectly maintained hardwood floor draws you past a deep closet and into a foyer embellished with Art Deco charm. An archway, one of four, adds a touch of Pre-War splendor to the entranceway. The foyer spills out into an expansive living room, where the wrap-around windows allow sunlight to splash dazzling patterns on the hardwood floor. This is a cheery room. The level of craftsmanship, the glorious hardwood inlays, the high, nine-foot ceilingthere's a lot to take in. The windowed, airy kitchen is an absolute delight. A floor-to-ceiling wall of solid, period appropriate cabinetry, means all your kitchenware can be neatly stowed away. The kitchen features a Hotpoint gas range, Whirlpool refrigerator, and GE dishwasher. The spacious bedroom, thoughtfully separated from the rest of the apartment, is a quiet oasis. Two large, double-depth, closets compliment this splendid space. The large, beautifully maintained bathroom retains many original Art Deco details. The oversized tub, both long and deep, might make this space your favorite room. The building itself has been lovingly maintained and underwent a recent restoration that returned the impressive lobby to its original grandeur. The stunning, six-story, co-op was designed by George G. Miller. The extraordinary exterior brickwork features horizontal banding which, together with exaggerated vertical window treatments, form a grid across the facade. The cast stone parapet is detailed with textile patterns employed in Art Deco design. 687 West 204th Street is an architectural treasure. Residents can mingle or enjoy quiet time in a lovely private courtyard surrounded by trees and other seasonal plantings. Coop amenities include a live-in super, bike room and storage (wait list/fees), modern laundry room, new intercom and electronic fob system. The building is wired for FIOS. Come and explore Inwood and all it has to offer. Great parks, terrific transportation, convenient shopping, restaurants, a weekly farmer's market, tennis courts, and so much more. Transportation couldn't be better. Two subway lines (the A and the #1 trains), express bus, and the Metro North train station are all within easy walking distance. 90% financing allowed. Sublets allowed with restrictions. Pet friendly.
