One of the masterpieces in the Riverside-West End Historic District, the Belvoir at 470 West End Avenue was designed by world-renowned architect George F. Pelham in 1928. Its stately facade projects a solidity and grace that New Yorkers know means that this is a building of luxurious homes. An elegant sidewalk canopy beckons you through the entry into the distinguished and grand lobby with stained-glass windows, marble columns and window surrounds, terrazzo floors, bronze doors, and gracious decor. Take the elevator to the 14th floor, and step into the lovely hall with only three apartments, then open the door to this wonderful classic 5 room home. Finally, the one you have been waiting for!
Walk into the large foyer, and notice the beautiful, original oak floors that continue throughout the apartment. The large and convenient coat closet is to your right, and as you walk past, you see the panorama that is the perfectly-proportioned south-facing formal dining room that flows into the enormous living room with extra-large windows looking out over 83rd Street. Imagine entertaining your friends and family with plenty of space for cocktail parties or sit-down dinners. You can move effortlessly from the entertaining spaces into the kitchen or the bedroom wing. And throughout, there are high-beamed ceilings, plentiful prewar moldings, and generous light.
Continue through the heart of the apartment down a short hall, which leads you to the stunning primary bedroom to your left and second bedroom to your right. The primary bedroom is unusually large with northern exposure and two closets—one a giant walk-in—and a completely renovated en suite bathroom, which is completely barrier-free for ease of use. Marble floors and beautiful tiles complement the space, which boasts a windowed shower.
Across the hall past a large linen closet lies the second bedroom, with sunny south exposure, and another en-suite windowed marble bathroom. Both bedrooms are large enough to accommodate home office areas, if you so desire.
The efficient windowed kitchen keeps everything at your fingertips, and has copious granite counter space, numerous cabinets, and a laundry closet with a fully-vented washer and dryer. Whether you keep the layout or reimagine it, this can be your gourmet chef’s dream with your creative vision.
The Belvoir has everything you want in your new home: the best location on the Upper West Side near shopping, Riverside Park, and transportation. And of course 24-hour doorman service, an attentive and knowledgeable live-in superintendent, additional laundry room in the basement, bike room, storage rooms, beautiful landscaping, and a terrific community. The co-op is 100% owned and has been the home to many happy residents for almost 100 years. Maintenance includes electricity. Fuel/Inflation surcharge of $165/mo until December. Pet-friendly. 75% maximum financing. No flip tax. Sorry, the building does not allow pied-a-terre buyers.
