Immaculately Renovated Prewar with Wood Burning Fireplace and Unobstructed Views
Sun-flooded and with North, East and South open city, bridge and river exposures, this high floor apartment has been meticulously reimagined for contemporary living. A bright entrance gallery opens onto an expansive 22 foot living room with a wall of windows that offer spectacular open and sky-filled North views. The wood burning fireplace, with its impressive limestone mantel by Chesney's of England, takes center stage and warmly incorporates living space with formal dining.
The large eat-in kitchen, with East River and RFK bridge views, is exquisitely designed with custom cabinetry, Caesarstone quartz counters, Dornbracht water fixtures and stainless appliances including a SubZero 36" refrigerator, Wolf 30" gas range and Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen is also equipped with a water filtration system.
The two bright bedrooms are split and each master-sized. The corner master suite, with North and East open bridge and river views, has a walk-in closet and a windowed spa bath. The Carrera marble bath is accented with a waterjet cut Walker Zenger floor and enjoys a remote operated TOTO washlet, deep soaking tub, glass vanity and Italian fixtures by Gessi. The large South-facing second bedroom has a walk-in closet and ensuite windowed modern glass subway and mosaic tiled bath with stall shower.
Only one of four residences per floor, this completely renovated home features new 5" oak hardwood floors and casement windows as well as fully updated electrical and plumbing systems. There is enhanced function, comfort and ambiance throughout from high end lighting by Hudson Valley, Louis Poulsen and WAC, including LED recessed overhead and under-cabinet lights, all operated on a Legrand dimmer system. Additional niceties are three outfitted closets, two of which are walk-ins; through-wall air conditioning; custom-fit Hunter Douglas window treatments; and space saving European slim radiators.
