An outdoor lover's dream! This is a rare Alcove Studio with a South facing, large private patio / deck. Nicely renovated, this bright and a spacious layout also features a separate sleeping area with well-designed Shoji Screens, a large separate living room and separate updated chef's kitchen. The long-plank, chocolate-stained, hardwood floors are stunning and certainly showcase this beautiful home. There is also an updated bathroom located down a short hallway which offers ample closet space & storage. The spectacular Private Patio measures 19' x 12' offers a secluded oasis from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and a wonderful opportunity to entertain guests or relax on the hammock on weekends. Located just feet from Third Ave, it is only a few quick blocks from the 6 Train and/or from Grand Central Station. Additionally, it is around the corner from all restaurants, shopping and transportation. Building offers: Part-Time Doorman (4pm - 12am daily) + Virtual Doorman during off-hours, Live-In Super, laundry, private storage bins (that can be rented / there is a short wait-list) as well as bike storage.
