Upper West Side Classic 6½ Sells for $1.695M

New York lawyer Robert C. Beers and Ashtanga Yoga practitioner Danicia Ambron sold their 2,000 sq. ft. co-op apartment at 600 West 111th Street for $1.695 million to voiceover specialist Wendell Craig and Nancy Good.

This Classic Six  co-op sold for $100,000 less than the original $1.795 asking price when it was listed by Laurie Selashky of Wohlfarth & Associates.  Monthly maintenance on the 2½ bath apartment is $2,140.

The in addition to 2 bedrooms and a maid’s room, the kitchen offers incredible light from the window facing West towards the Hudson River.

The maid’s room has a washer and dryer unit – an asset in an old co-op where Board restrictions can be prohibitive.

A few bonus touches: the building is pet friendly and has a common roof for use by all shareholders.  If Craig and  Good own a dog, they are just steps from Riverside Park and dog walks along the Hudson River.

Baby Got Bidding Wars! 310 Riverside Dr. PH Sells Over Ask

Lara Gorton sold her incredible penthouse duplex co-op apartment at 310 Riverside Drive for $1.905 million, according to New York City records.

Gorton is the Director of Institutional Sales at the Telsey Advisory Group.

Given that she sold her co-op for $110,000 over the $1.795 million original list price, it appears that Gorton may have benefited from bidding wars for an apartment that commands stunning views of the Hudson River, Riverside Park, and the Upper West Side.

The buyers are Bernd Schmitt, a professor at Columbia University’s Business School, and Hisako Fujii. Schmitt directs the Business School’s Center on Global Brand Leadership. He focuses on customer experience management. and heads a consulting firm.

Halstead brokers Amelia Gewirtz and Andrew Phillips had the exclusive.

The duplex co-op penthouse has incredible views all around the apartment. You can have coffee in the kitchen over the Hudson at breakfast, and drinks on the upstairs terrace in the evening.

The co-op went into contract quickly last fall. According to SteetEasy, it was first listed on Sept. 24, 2009, and had an accepted offer less than a month later on Oct. 19, 2009.

The apartment comes with a washer and dryer on the upper level, a real plus considering the premium that the buyers paid for this cooperative.

The main floor with the apartment’s entrance has the kitchen and one bedroom. The kitchen is a cook’s dream, chock full of gorgeous, high-end appliances:

  • A Subzero fridge with a glass front
  • Wolf double wall ovens
  • A sleek glass top range with five burners
  • Those cute Fisher Paykel dishwashers that are actually drawers
  • A disposal!
  • A wine refrigerator

The semi-circle upstairs level has the master bedroom, storage area, and huge living room facing the Hudson.

There is also a custom sound system wired, and the apartment is wired for HDTV

While the pre-war co-op is pet friendly, there is one potential drawbacks with this apartment. Having a penthouse with a rooftop terrace increases the risk for roof leaks into your apartment. Just ask co-op shareholders who have ever owned a penthouse apartment. You are likely to find a few stories about roof leaks they may have been unlucky to face.
