They don't make them like this anymore: timeless, gracious, elegant, classy, and of course, those direct, OMG views of Central Park, the Reservoir and the City skyline beyond. WOW! This stunning home is a blank canvas awaiting your creative touches and artistic finishes, and has the perfect bone structure for your architect's nip here and tuck there to restore a grande dame of yesteryear to her original brilliance. The oversized rooms and those dreamy views, permitting you to gaze out your windows and track the seasonal changes of Central Park's color palate, will never get old. The delicious warmth of the direct morning sunshine -- aahhhhh! And there is nothing like a friendly greeting from the doorman, going up to 8 and exiting onto your own, private elevator landing. You have arrived! The room dimensions, the light and views, the corner windows in the bedrooms and windowed bathrooms, the private elevator landing - these will never change. But you have a unique opportunity to transform the diamond-in-the-rough kitchen and bathrooms into your personal crown jewel. See our virtual reality video showing how the current kitchen, maid's room and bath, and dining room might be reconfigured to become the hub of your 21st Century home. Imagine the black tie soirees, the blow-out Super Bowl parties, the book club meetings, the poker and mahjong games and the casual get togethers. Imagine the pride and satisfaction of putting your personal stamp on your new residence to make it into the home of your dreams. Imagine the memories you will create here. And the building? The Ardsley is a historic Emery Roth Art-Deco treasure offering white-glove, full service prewar elegance. The lobby is newly renovated, and there is a fitness center, children’s playroom, two bike rooms, multiple storage rooms, a lending library – everything you could want and need, and more! Pets are welcome, washer/dryers are permitted. This home has had the same owner for more than six decades, and four generations created countless memories with this home as a backdrop. It is now time for a lucky new owner to customize it and create his, her or their own memories. It could be you!
