Description

SURPRISE YOURSELF: UPPER LOBBY-LEVEL LOVELINESS ON THE TREE-LINE

BIGGER SPACE, BETTER LAYOUT, HIGHER CEILINGS, MORE INDEPENDENCE, ULTRA CONVENIENT

MUSEUM PARK BLOCK ’MAISONETTE’ IN DOORMAN BUILDING (part time) w/SUPER-PRIME ADDRESS

PET & PIED A TERRE FRIENDLY WHERE GUARANTORS, GIFTING, CO-PURCHASES & ONE-BUYING-FOR-ANOTHER ACCEPTABLE (w/Board Approval)

Here, your personal lobby attendant is at your doorstep daily from 12PM-Midnight; Museum Park is down the street; and the quick-in/quick-out access that this marvelous Maisonette provides you is the freedom, peace of mind, and autonomy that are today’s prized luxuries. Forget crowded elevators and waiting in a lobby for your lift. Never again waste time backtracking home through your building, up the elevator, and down the hall to retrieve something you forgot and, if you have a dog, the multiple daily walk routine just got much easier.

This is the home that changes hearts and inspires good vibes whenever you’re enjoying its big rooms. With supreme, lobby-height ceilings above, handsome hardwood floors underfoot, over-scaled, cheerfully light, Citi-Quiet windows onto the tree-line, and a rare, stretch-out layout life here is easier, bigger, and better.

This is a ’maisonette’ that feels very much like a sweetly scaled ’house.’ A sizable, flexible gallery/foyer (ideal for reading or office nook) spills onto the big living/dining room, a light and airy space anchored by a trio of windows on the tree-line. Served by a big, pass-through windowed kitchen with ample cabinet and counter space these rooms are ideal for big entertaining and quiet recharging.

The king-sized bedroom is a mega-scaled suite a peaceful (Citi-Quiet windows) retreat on the tree-line with an abundance of closet space and en suite access to the large, dual-entry, windowed bath. (Guests can gracefully access the commodious bath without entering the grand bedroom.)

There is a tranquil, easy-to-love feeling in this home, and its unique position in its good looking, 1920’s building benefits this residence in clever and coveted ways. The rooms are bigger, the wonderful angles and scale are unmatched, and there is impressive storage throughout including a mega-walk-in closet off of the fantastic foyer.

Sweetly positioned in its Prewar building, this home enjoys the benefits of the door staff, a live-in Super, and separate bike/storage/laundry rooms. Pet and pied-terre-friendly with Museum and Central Parks right up the street this home enjoys a prime location that comes with bragging rights. Conveniently located on a quiet (no through-traffic), picturesque tree-lined street this easy-living home offers prime proximity to every area dining, shopping, and cultural destination.

Transportation options abound (1, B and C trains), and minutes away are Trader Joe’s, Citarella, Zabar’s, Fairway, the Beacon Theatre, and Lincoln Center just to name a few.

Life here is easier. Life here is brighter. Life here is better and more fun.

Your marvelous ’maisonette’ awaits.
