2 Bd/2 Bth, 5 Rm Harlem Condo w/Terrace
This pristine 1,075 Square Foot condominium is a dream. Southern exposure in the living room and one of the bedrooms drenches this property with sunlight throughout the day, and there are windows on two other sides (east and north) providing cross ventilation and ensuring an airy as well as bright experience in this home. A fifth room, a windowed den, can be used as a home office, guest room or a smaller 3rd bedroom. The well-designed kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The Master Bedroom has its own bathroom, two closets, and is nestled on the rear side of the building. Heating and air conditioning are delivered through an HVAC system, and both bathrooms have windows.
But the jewel in this crown is not inside but outside: a large southern facing private terrace, accessible through TWO rooms. At almost 400 square feet it's big enough for tables, chairs AND lounges, not to mention tons of plants, creating an experience of luxurious living. There are open city views and you feel like you are living on top of the neighborhood, especially looking right across to the steeple of All Saints Church, designed by James Renwick (of St. Patrick's Cathedral fame!)
Built in 2006 the Walden has a part time doorman; a beautifully appointed Community Room (which is not in the basement but on the 2nd floor); additional storage space, and FREE laundry. And there's even a spa in the building! Close to lots of public transportation: the 2, 3 ,4, 5 & 6 trains are all a short walk away, as is Metro North's 125th Street station. Some of Harlem's best food and nightlife are blocks away (Red Rooster, Lucien, Sylvia's, Corner Social, Lenox Saphire), and the newest retail additions to the neighborhood include Whole Foods and Bed, Bath & Beyond. And there are several CitiBike stations within minutes of the building. The 421-A tax abatement goes through 2031 and there is an assessment of $242.67.
