Beautiful, loft like 2,000sf potential four bedroom, two bathroom residence on Manhattan's prestigious East Side, close to midtown and the UN. Recently fully renovated, this apartment exudes an aura of timeless elegance and modern sophistication. Enter into the grand and open living area, with two wings of bedrooms, including 2 working fireplaces, 10-inch plank walnut hardwood floors, Venetian plaster walls, and a Denon surround sound system throughout the entire apartment. There is currently a full laundry room, which can easily become a nursery/bedroom, should that suit your needs. An open windowed kitchen features a masterful design, custom cabinetry, granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, solid brass hardware, and top-of-the-line appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, Wolf 4-burner range, Wolf built-in microwave, and a dual pull-out Fisher & Paykel dishwasher. The kitchen opens seamlessly into the dining area and living room, warmed by a wood-burning fireplace, and the ceiling's cove lighting provides a soft glow throughout the room. A custom built-in wet bar with Marvel wine fridge sits off of the living room, providing an ideal space for entertaining guests. A gracious master bedroom is enormous, with wood-burning fireplace, calming cove lighting, and a custom walk-in dressing room and closet that one would typically only find in a house. There is also a second triple-wide closet with built-in shelving to accommodate a second wardrobe. A state-of-the-art projector retracts from the ceiling, and there is a 10-foot Draper screen for cozy movie nights in bed. The large master en-suite bathroom has double vanities, tile flooring, a deep soaking tub with an inlaid water resistant flatscreen television, a separate 3-zone custom Axor shower, and a private water closet. On the other wing of the residence, off the main living space are two well-proportioned bedrooms with custom closets and shelving, and a windowed second full bathroom with clean and crisp design adorned with large glass wall tiles and a deep soaking tub. This glorious home is nestled in a beautiful pre-war doorman building, designed by renowned architect John H. Duncan, on a tree-lined block surrounded by charming brownstone homes. Current maintenance of $4,771 per month is offset by a three year $75,000 maintenance credit to be included at closing.
Share the neighborhood with the iconic United Nations, Chrysler Building, Waldorf-Astoria and the W Hotel. You'll be surrounded by great restaurants, transportation with an easy commute to midtown, and just south of the Upper East Side's world-class shopping. There is easy access to the East River Greenway - perfect for a waterfront stroll or bicycle ride. Don't let this gem slip by, it is the one you have been waiting for!
