A design aficionados dream-studio cooperative holds the highly coveted address of Central Park West. For years, The Ardsley was the home to Barbra Streisand, and many years before, the lyricist Lorenz Hart. The Ardsley was designed by the renowned architect Emery Roth. The Ardsley is Roths first Art Deco building, and considered one of the citys greatest Art Deco residential buildings. Inspired by the architectural styles of ancient Mayan, The Ardsleys styling and spacious volumes are amongst the the finest anywhere on the Upper West Side.The Ardsley sits at the corner of 92nd and Central Park West. The building is a white glove, full-service prewar, with a newly renovated lobby, fitness center, immaculate laundry room, kids playroom, two bike rooms, multi storage rooms, and lending library. Pets are welcome.Recently renovated and refreshed, this rare property maintains many of the original Art Deco details from 1929. This graciously proportioned studio, designed as a guest apartment, boasts original raw steal door-frames, Art Deco door knobs and plates, beamed ceilings and hardwood floors with inlaid border. The bathroom's original pedestal sink, oversized tub, black and white Art Deco tile and mosaic floor are intact and in excellent condition. The charming period medicine cabinet is original to the property. The entrance foyer, rare in studios apartments, has a spacious clothing closet. A more spacious walk-in storage closet is adjacent to the main room. Loyal to Emery Roths 1929 vision, the kitchen cabinetry with replica Art Deco hardware, chrome-trimmed laminate counter tops, black and white tile floor, and Art Deco pendent light are in keeping with the period charm. Designed for efficiency, the stainless steel under-mount refrigerator and faceted sink with elegant font create an appealing vista through the double glass doors. Converted to Co-ops in 1971, the Ardsley is a jewel among the many Emery Roth residential buildings that define Central Park West. Recently restored, this coveted Upper West Side maintains all of its grandeur of 1929.
