Reduced price -- same great views! This beautiful and unique apartment is perched on the top floor of a coveted pre-war elevator building situated along the waterfront and it has possibly the best views from a one bedroom on Shore Road! There are gorgeous views of the harbor from every window and, with western exposure, it gets terrific light. Watch the cruise ships pass, the seasons change, and enjoy spectacular sunsets. This apartment has a wonderful blend of old world charm and modern amenities. There are high ceilings, original arched doorways and wood floors, as well as custom lighting and fixtures throughout. All the rooms are dramatically proportioned and offer a flexible use of space. A large foyer is currently used as an office but could also make an ideal dining nook. The windowed eat-in kitchen has plenty of cabinets and counter space. The updated bathroom has both a tub and separate shower. Both the living room and bedroom are spacious, and the bedroom has a total of four windows! Building amenities include a beautifully landscaped front garden, newly renovated art deco lobbies, laundry, bicycle and air conditioner storage rooms. There's also private storage space at a nominal cost. A live-in superintendent and two full-time porters keep the building in immaculate shape. It's pet friendly, too - dogs up to 40lbs. are welcome at 8701 Shore Road. And the location can't be beat: the express buses stop directly in front of the building, the "R" train is a short distance away, and the new ferry service at the 69th Street Pier is a great commuting option. The promenade right across the street is great for all kinds of activities and you're just a short distance to the many great restaurants and shopping on Third Avenue. This is truly a one-of-a-kind apartment and bound to sell quickly!
