Description

MASSSIVE NINE on CPW WITH PARK VIEWS

Grandeur, elegance, and beauty define this classically designed, richly appointed Park-facing nine-room home in one of New York’s most admired and historically significant residences: the St. Urban.

With nearly 60 feet of Park frontage, 10-foot ceilings, and wondrous Central Park views, Residence 2S is an extraordinary home in excellent condition.

It begins with a graceful, inviting 22-foot-long gallery that opens to a most impressive sweep of living and entertaining rooms, each featuring massive bay windows through which light pours in all day. These classically designed, resplendent yet contemporary and art-filled rooms - living room, dining room, and library - evoke a quiet luxury and rare grace that, along with their notable volume, must be seen to be appreciated.

Off the dining room is a sitting room that provides a welcoming place for before and after-dinner conversations, contemplative reading, or entertainment.

Aside from abundant light, views, and space, these rooms align most pleasingly: enfilade. This design comprises perfectly aligned wide French doors separating contiguous rooms, a feature that harkens back to grand European architecture dating from the 17th century.

An enfilade design creates order, balance, and calm. How divine for a home in this bucolic part of our bustling city!

The rest of this exquisite home is equally remarkable. Off the entrance gallery through glass paned solid-wood French doors is a huge eat-in kitchen with handsome custom cabinetry, two sinks, and a central island that invites company and conviviality.

It is equipped with a 6-burner Garland stove with grill, two ovens, two sub-zero refrigerators, two Fisher and Paykel dishwashers, and more.

The west side of the gallery leads to a separate bedroom wing. There, one finds four sizable, well-proportioned bedrooms. Three share a lovely, full bath off the bedroom corridor.

The spacious primary bedroom has two exposures, walk-in closets, and a windowed en-suite bath with a soaking tub and stall shower. There is a third full bath off the library, which converts to a private guest bedroom facing the Park. Other key features include a laundry area (W/D and sink) and central air-conditioning with Nest control.

Built in 1906 and designed by Robert T.

Lyons, the St. Urban sits in and contributes significantly to both the Central Park West and Upper West Side Historic Districts. Its exuberant style evokes Parisian Beaux-Arts glamour with its lavish 3-story rusticated limestone base, story-high copper lantern, double-sized porte-cochere, mansard roof, and distinctive entry.

Unlike other landmarks along the avenue, the St. Urban has a boutique feel comprising only 56 apartments. It is a proper Class A building with full white-glove service.

The warm and friendly staff includes full-time door attendants, porters, and a resident manager. The building also has a laundry room, bike room, gym, basketball court, and play area. Pets welcome.

Financing up to 50%. 2% Flip Tax. No pieds-a-terre.

Please reach out for a private showing of this joyful, elegant, and welcoming home.
