This home exudes luxury from the second one steps off the elevator and into the welcoming foyer. Leading the way to the galley, living room and then the wood-paneled library, the openness of the property only emphasizes the warmness of the living space. From oversized windows to French doors, to the custom millwork and the richly stained parquet floors, the unit is entirely characteristic of the pre-war design. Engulfed by natural light, the enfilade living space is an area worth staying in to admire the superb city views at any hour of the day.
Featuring 4 bedrooms, each with private marble bathrooms, the bedroom wing has sunny views to the west, over Park Avenue. With beautiful chandeliers, printed curtains, and unique, accent furniture pieces, the bedrooms are equally elegant as they are comfortable. The kitchen is filled with top of the line stainless steel appliances and features, as well as a custom built, state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled wine cellar. With every piece of décor exclusively picked, the seamless flow of the home is undeniable, from the living space, to the bedrooms, to the breakfast area and the dining room.
There is also a wing, on the south east side of the apartment, with two staff bedrooms and a full bathroom. The entire unit is built with through the wall a/c components, and the entertainment rooms have built-in Sonos speakers. In the building there is also a gym and a bike room, accessible at all times.
