This magnificent home with four bedrooms plus a home office is of a caliber all its own, bathed in natural light, with stunning open skyline, park and East River views.
Your private elevator landing spills into a gracious reception gallery, introducing an ambiance of astounding elegance. Airy 10’6 ceilings, rich dark hardwood floors, exquisite moldings and millwork, classic open arched doorways, three wood burning fireplaces, designer lighting, and refined finishes at every turn reflect a uniquely luxurious level of class and quality.
The expansive layout is thoughtfully designed for your comfort, with the lavish living and entertaining areas set apart from the quiet private quarters. The dramatic north and east-facing double living room presents the first of the apartment’s three wood-burning fireplaces. On the opposite end, the distinctive dining room is graced by walls of custom built-ins and offers a convenient wet bar.
The gourmet eat-in kitchen inspires culinary creations and provides plenty of prep and storage space. Among its upscale appointments is a top-grade Wolf and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliance package with two dishwashers. Complementing the divine kitchen is a butler’s pantry equipped with a 2nd Sub-Zero fridge, wine cooler, icemaker, and additional generous storage.
A lovely library adjacent to the living room can also serve as a master sitting room, as it shares its double-sided wood-burning fireplace with (and has double doors to) the bedroom portion of the sumptuous master suite, which overlooks Park Avenue. Exceptional closet space that includes a dressing room, and a marble master bath with double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and oversized glass shower, complete the master suite.
This wonderful home also offers a large southeast corner 2nd bedroom, a southwest corner 3rd bedroom with a wood burning fireplace and Central Park views, and a full bath adjoining the two. The west-facing 4th bedroom, sizable home office, and a third full bath, lead you back toward the kitchen. Other highlights include a laundry area, central air-conditioning, and additional storage room, or gym, on the first floor.
