114 Morningside Drive

Spacious 2-Bedroom Top-Floor Apartment Overlooking Morningside Park, Steps Away from Columbia University ! This sun-flooded two-bedroom presents a rare opportunity to combine the joys of a stunning penthouse with the unique benefits of living on Morningside Drive. With 900sf of living space, extra-high ceilings and windows in every room, this place is an exceptional home. Seven windows flood the apartment with light and afford protected 180-degree views across Morningside Park capturing both sunrise and sunset. The apartment has undergone extensive renovations, including a brand-new kitchen, upgraded bathroom, a full re-paint and resurfacing of the inlaid oak floors in the living room and front bedroom. The beautiful open kitchen features rare Italian marble wall tiles, an ultra-quiet Bosch dishwasher and a built-in, solid oak cupboard – restored to its original majesty by an antique wood specialist. 114 Morningside Drive is the City's second-oldest co-op. As one of just two buildings on the street that is not owned by Columbia, it benefits from the university's 24-hour security, with one guard stationed directly across the street. Bordering the park atop a dramatic cliff, we share unobstructed views all the way to the East River with Columbia's President's house, Faculty House, and Law School graduate housing all along this street. This quiet street, which prohibits commercial traffic, offers plentiful free parking thanks to the nature of the occupants on just one side of it. Built in 1910, the building offers a live-in superintendent, laundry room, bike room, and elevator. The sale includes a private storage locker in the basement and bike storage (we have 3 bikes in our space with room to spare).
