Citi Habitats agent Andrew Sacks recently helped his clients purchase apartment #15D at The Ardsley at 320 Central Park West for $1,360,000.
“My clients were a couple from Boston who grew up in Brooklyn – and it was their life-long dream to move back to New York. Initially, they wanted a two-bedroom, but everything we saw in their budget was too ‘cookie-cutter,’” explained Sacks.
“They decided to open the search to ‘special’ one-bedrooms, meaning homes that were turn-key, unique and in quality buildings. The minute we toured the unit at The Ardsley, they knew it was the one.”
This renovated one-bedroom, 1.5 bath co-op (pictured top) features a kitchen with marble countertops; and a main living area with beamed ceilings, a fireplace and hardwood floors. The building is Art-Deco and was designed by Emery Roth in 1931.
The apartment was listed for $1,395,000 and was on the market for three weeks. Maintenance fees total $2,081 per month. Stacey Bradie of Stribling represented the sellers.
