In 1891, noted architect Gilbert A. Schellinger's Romanesque Revival vision at the corner of West 75th Street and Columbus Avenue - The Del Monte - was realized. With its voluminous lobby, its ornamental brownstone and ironwork, and its grand window-lit halls, Schellinger's creation was known for its comfortable scale, its newly prime location in the bourgeoning Upper Westside, and its gracious layouts. This rarely available, top floor, East-facing two-bedroom home with extra high ceilings is part of that creation - and it's ready to be reimagined by you - ready for its 2016 makeover (please see alternate plan for just one potential concept). The core elements that make this winsome home a smart and easy-to-love residence are already in place. The comfortable living room has twin windows boasting sunny, open-sky views and a glamour shot of the soaring San Remo towers - plus room for a dining area, and a decorative fireplace ready to be unearthed from the plaster that now covers it. The foyer is gracious and inviting, the windowed kitchen has ample cabinet space, a dishwasher, and a coveted washer/dryer. The quiet master bedroom offers twin closets, the guest bedroom is flexible, and both are served by a windowed bath. All that's missing is your vision - your upgrades. The Del Monte is pet friendly, boasts a restored lobby and halls, and conveniently offers storage/bike/laundry rooms, two entrances (one with ramp), and a beloved live-in superintendent (who takes all packages). With a location that comes with bragging rights, this sunny sweetheart-of-a-home is one block from Central Park, and mere moments away from Riverside Park, Barneys, Zabars, Fairway, Beacon Theatre, and most every area cultural, dining, and shopping destination - not to mention a plethora of transportation options. Made in 1891, this top-floor temptress is ready for its next incarnation - ready for you and your dreams.
