Description


This stunning 2-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom loft-style corner apartment in the coveted Gramercy neighborhood is now available at an unbeatable price. As you enter, you are immediately greeted by dramatic 18-foot ceilings, full-height windows, and newly exposed architectural beams. The spacious and light-filled living area facing south boasts Smart electricity and custom electric blinds, making it the perfect place to relax and entertain.

A focal staircase with glass treads, providing natural light through its open risers, leads you to the secluded second-floor bedroom or office area. This suite features full-height glass panels and sliding doors, allowing for a picturesque view of the living room and beyond. It also includes ample storage space and a separate entryway.

The glass treads are individually lit for a modern touch, and the adjoining Carrara clad bathroom comes with an enclosed Miele W/D.

The primary suite boasts breathtaking views of St. George's and Stuyvesant Square Park to the east, as well as historic brownstones to the south. The grand room features soaring 18-foot ceilings, huge windows, and plenty of sky. The accompanying bath includes radiant heated floors and an under-lit sink with a built-in Bluetooth speaker.

You'll love the stylish architecture and design details throughout, such as the marble powder room built around an exposed beam.

The open and functional chef's kitchen with Miele appliances and SieMatic cabinetry is great for cooking and hosting guests, while the separate dining area can easily be transformed from intimate to formal. Ample closet space adds to the convenience and livability of the apartment.

Built in the Romanesque Revival style in 1888, The Abbey was converted into 31 condominiums in 2005. A full-service building with a 24/7 doorman, porter, and live-in super, it was designed by Leopold Eidlitz and Charles Otto Blesch and holds a significant place in New York's history.

Located on a quiet, tree-lined block with access to Rutherford Place and the serene Stuyvesant Square Park, known for its dog park, peaceful gardens, and lush greenery. You'll be just minutes away from top restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, with easy access to public transportation. Live an idyllic NYC lifestyle in this historic and vibrant neighborhood.

The staging was expertly handled by Gracia Taylor Design.
