A park side co-op that’s as big as a house


Want the spaciousness of a house with the convenience and services of an apartment? Look no further than Apartment 2E2F at 6485 Broadway.

This four-to-five-bedroom, three-bathroom co-op was create by combining two side-by-side units and the 2,000-plus-square-foot whole is certainly more than the sum of its parts.

The principal loft-like space is a great room accomodating an open kitchen, dining area, living area and family space, with access to a terrace overlooking a densely wooded portion of Van Cortlandt Park.

The up-to-date kitchen features cherry wood cabinets, granite countertops and stainless appliances.

The living areas and master bedroom have broad picture windows facing the park and every room has polished oak parquet flooring.

Air conditioning sleeves in the wall make it possible to stay cool without blocking the beautiful view.

Ten closets offer plenty of storage space and the bathrooms have been updated with elegant glass sink bowls and sleek vanities along with sliding glass tub and shower enclosures.

Bedrooms are quite large and flexible. Each has enough room for a king-size bed, bunk beds or home office furniture.

Just about everything is nearby, from shopping on Mosholu Avenue, Broadway or Riverdale Avenue to local and express buses to city and subway or Metro-North shuttles to the train station.

According to Yuri Fridman of Halstead Properties, dog ownership is okay, depending on board approval. He says the property is listed at $459,000 with maintenance of $1,709 which includes taxes, cold and hot water, heat and gas.
