Description

GRAND & GRACIOUS: SPRAWLING CORNER SHOWSTOPPER w/SUNSETS SUPREME & DEDICATED OFFICE

(Architect measured & DoB signed-off ~2,453 SF)

With a Central Park West address whose location comes with bragging rights, this heroic Alden home enjoys a prime position in its full service building. With big-sky and open city views, every one of this rambling residence’s rooms enjoys bright exposures and an impressive scale. Above you are high ceilings with recessed lighting, underfoot are wood floors, and all around you is space -- bright, double-corner, stretch-out space with dramatic views day and night.

The corner living room is blessed with two exposures and many large windows -- including an over-scaled picture window that theatrically showcases the room’s sunshiny sky and architectural views. With a decorative fireplace and open-plan access to the large dining room, this area has great flow -- smartly accommodating grand living and entertaining. Served masterfully by the jumbo, open, windowed cook’s kitchen (with its top-tier stainless appliances by Viking, Subzero, and Miele, ample stone counters and cabinets, a prep island, and extra big dining bar), this great room is worthy of the name.

The two bedroom wings are quite separate from the living/dining/kitchen spaces, providing for graceful function and quiet privacy. The primary bedroom is a corner abode with two walk-in closets, a decorative fireplace, stunning light, vibrant views, and an ensuite bath with claw-foot soaking tub and separate shower. The three guest bedroom suites are large, offer impressive closet and desk spaces, and feature more of this home’s bright, feel-good vibe.

The bonus room is a fantastically flexible space ideal for all of your growing needs. Served by its own full bath, this can be your guest space, your home office, your den, your gym, or your fifth bedroom.

With in-home laundry, and super-prime access to its Emery Roth designed, pet-friendly building’s full service staff, resident superintendent, glorious park-view roof garden, and building bike/laundry/storage rooms, life here is good.

With every area cultural, dining, shopping, fitness and entertainment destination nearby -- not to mention Central Park as your backyard, and a plethora of easy transportation options right outside the door -- this big-hearted home is easy-to-live and easy-to-love.

Come for the space -- stay for the sunsets. Your grand, gracious life awaits. Assessment: $1,463/month through 31MAR23 for Local Law 11.
