Description

Located within the iconic Ansonia condominium, Apt. 5-109 is a magnificent convertible 4-bedroom apartment with approximately 2,600 square feet of grand, elegant living space. Situated on Broadway between 73rd and 74th Streets, The Ansonia is an outstanding full-service doorman building with a parking garage in the heart of the Upper West Side.

Apt.

5109 is a one-of-a-kind, pristine apartment has recently been upgraded throughout its newly-renovated Poggenpohl chef's kitchen and three bathrooms with Waterworks fixtures, each which feature radiant floor heating. Additional recent enhancements include central air conditioning, a large washer/dryer, and custom-built doors. The apartment abounds with marvelous Beaux-Arts elements, which include a unique grand circular dining room located within one of the building's iconic rounded corner towers, oversized windows along all three of the home's exposures, and herringbone hardwood flooring.

The Ansonia is ideally situated amongst the vibrant dining, shopping and entertainment of the Upper West Side, including Lincoln Center, The Beacon Theatre, The Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Citarella, and Trader Joe's.

It is in close proximity to major transportation lines, including the express subway stations at 72nd Street. This unique and special building combines modern conveniences with breathtaking Beaux-Arts architecture and rich historical significance.

Building amenities include a full-time doorman, concierge, garage parking, private roof deck, laundry room, bike racks, and storage.

Completed in 1904, The Ansonia was built as the largest residential hotel of its day. It is among the most notable Beaux-Arts buildings in Manhattan, decorated with a Parisian-style mansard roof, round corner towers, and a grand internal staircase that sweeps up to a large domed skylight above.

Apartment Layout:

Arrive through a grand original double doorway and into the impressive entry gallery, which is ideal for both showcasing treasured art, and providing functional entry storage. The gallery is complete with two sizable coat closets, and leads to the stunning, unique circular dining room, which is adorned with an intricately detailed mantel. Three oversized windows along this room's rounded expanse allow for brilliant sunlight and beautiful Western views overlooking Broadway.

The home's massive living room affords outstanding proportions, gracious coffered ceilings, and tremendous windows along both of its exposures.

Currently configured as a grand, open living room, this space features two adjacent bathrooms and a large walk-in closet, easily lending itself to the possibility of creating two additional bedroom suites.

The newly-renovated eat-in chef's kitchen is fully-equipped with a Subzero refrigerator, wine cooler, Miele dishwasher, espresso machine, a Viking stove and an in-sink garbage disposal. Replete with radiant heated floors, hardwood Poggenpohl cabinetry and granite countertops, the spacious chef's kitchen provides ample dining space, as well as a large pantry closet with abundant shelving. A washer/dryer and separate sink lie adjacent to the pantry closet.

Two bright, well-proportioned bedrooms are situated along the home's West exposure, each receiving beautiful views that overlook the treetops and iconic buildings along Broadway.

Both bedrooms afford abundant storage, each with custom shelving and sizable closets. A newly renovated full bathroom with a free-standing shower and separate soaking tub lies adjacent to both bedrooms, conveniently serving each one.

Building History:

Considered the "grandest hotel in Manhattan," The Ansonia featured majestic ballrooms, restaurants decorated in the style of Louis XIV, a palm court, tearooms, cafes, a bank, a barbershop, tailor, writing rooms, Turkish baths, and the world's largest indoor swimming pool.

Notable long-term hotel residents included the likes of Babe Ruth and boxer Jack Dempsey.

There was also a working farm on the roof and a separate cattle elevator, which permitted access to dairy cows. In 1992, the Ansonia was converted into condominium apartments and carefully restored to maintain the sophistication, romance and luxury that the building radiates.
