Here and there on the Main Line, you find apartment and condominium buildings that blend the best elements of city and suburban living.

More:

The Green Hill condominium at 1001 City Avenue, on the Wynnewood side of the Philadelphia-Lower Merion border, is one of those. Built in 1962, it’s a Midecntury Modern classic that offers its residents fantastic views in a park-like setting and a convenient location.

Whoever buys this condominium unit will enjoy some of the best views this building has to offer from its 10th-floor perch. On top of that, the lucky buyer will live in an apartment that has been smartly updated for contemporary tastes with plenty of style.

The kitchen is the centerpiece of the makeover. It has been transformed into a handsome space with traditional cabinetry, including two glass-paned display cabinets, in- and under-cabinet lighting, patterned tile backsplash and up-to-date stainless-steel appliances.

The bathroom has likewise been brought into the here and now with a full tile shower stall with bench seat and updated granite-topped vanity.

There’s a big-screen TV mount above the built-ins in the living room, and the polished floors and Berber carpets both look great. The huge windows let lots of light in and let you enjoy the sylvan view in any weather. Of course, when it’s good, you can take it all in from your ample balcony.

The building comes with a bunch of very nice amenities, including indoor and outdoor pools, a tennis court, a gym, a private playground, gated security and a round-the-clock staffed front desk. There’s also secured parking for you and your guests.

Between your mortgage payment and the $598 per month condo fee, your monthly payment for this attractive condo will be the same or less than you’d pay for a well-outfitted one-bedroom apartment in the city. And the condo fee covers your utility bills too.
