The dressing area has twin closets.
418 Central Park West is a classic turn-of-the century (19th-20th!) building; its elegance includes a lobby of mosaic floors, a fireplace, and rich ornamentation. Yet despite its grand style the building is a boutique-style condominium with a full time doorman, a live-in Super, and its amenities include a common courtyard, private storage, bike storage and laundry in the basement. Located at West 102nd St. and Central Park West, some of the most scenic parts of the park are across the street, including the North Woods and "The Pool", which is not a swimming pool but a naturally appearing body of water.
This part of the Upper West Side, Manhattan Valley, has witnessed important changes over the last decade, including more places to shop: whole Foods and Trader Joe's are nearby. There is a farmer's market down the street on Fridays. The Bloomingdale library is down the block. And you're close to public transportation: the B and C trains are a block away; the 1, 2 and 3 trains are not far; and the M10 bus stops right in front of the building. This property would make a great purchase for a first time New York home, as well an ideal pied-a-terre. Pets are welcome, and being a condo, the building is investor friendly.
