This is the home you have been waiting for. Spacious? Yes. Sun-Drenched? Yes. Unobstructed, spectacular views of the Hudson River and the Palisades in every room? YES. Located in the premier Hudson Heights community known as Castle Village, this elegant and expansive 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment is a rarely available 1 line in the coveted 140 building that features the best views in upper Manhattan. The south-west facing, sunken living room with extra height ceilings provides great light and amazing views of the George Washington Bridge, the Hudson River, and Castle Villages large private lawn. The corner master bedroom also faces south and west and is wrapped in panoramic, triple-corner windows with even more stunning views of the river and bridge. The master has ample room for a king size bed and additional furniture, and features a double-sized California closet that is rarely found in similar 1 line apartments. The windowed kitchen has been tastefully updated including a professional grade range and stainless appliances throughout, as well as granite countertops, ceiling-height custom cabinets to maximize storage space, and stylish contemporary lighting. The second bedroom, which has a bathroom en-suite, is also large enough to be considered the master if preferred. Both the second and third bedrooms enjoy direct views of greenery and the Hudson river. A separate dining area opens to an adjoining alcove perfect for a bar or serving station, and multiple hallway closets insure you will never run out of storage space. This pre-war, white-glove doorman building is one of the first in Manhattan to employ reinforced concrete construction and features double-paned windows, making the apartment extremely quiet. The finished rooftop deck offers mind-blowing views of both the Hudson Valley to the north and all of lower Manhattan to the south. Castle Village offers many amenities like a fully equipped gym with river views, a community room for entertaining, common laundry facilities and a parking garage, but it is the manicured grounds that stand out as unheard of in New York City. The 7.5 acre space is anchored by an expansive open lawn that is used for picnics, playing ball, and even an annual camping night. Lush landscaping borders both the lawn and various green spaces allotted for a community herb garden, personal resident gardening spaces, a spacious, enclosed playground, and multiple seating areas to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat while watching stunning sunsets over the river. Only residents and their guests are allowed to use the grounds, which are monitored 24 hours a day by a private security detail. And finally, gas and electric are included in the maintenance contributing to low monthly expenses. Find out why homeowners in this bucolic part of Hudson Heights lovingly refer to it as "Upstate Manhattan." Castle Village overlooks the Hudson River from a 200-foot bluff and is just minutes from Fort Washington Park, the NYC Greenway, Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters. The daily commute is easy with access to the A train, 1 train, M4/M98 Express buses only blocks away.
