Description

Be the first to live in this unique, brand new, designer-renovated retro Art Deco apartment that recalls the Machine Age and the pinnacle of American architectural and industrial design. With striking finishes and consistent design elements you will not see anywhere else, Residence 19M has been reimagined for 21st century living, integrating function and style into every aspect of its classic design. Note the chevron-patterned hardwood floors in the living room, made of furniture-grade burly Maple with a special finish, and the copper-inlaid base and door moldings, plus coordinating accents made of solid copper and stainless steel that set the defining framework throughout the apartment. One-of-a-kind, custom kitchen cabinets and retro appliances offer modern functionality in evocative style.

The luxurious master bath, with gleaming English hand-crafted period fixtures and beautiful marble, offers additional storage space, and the second bath is clad in rare silver travertine, featuring a handmade hammered copper sink. Of very special note: the custom-designed, generously proportioned secretary desk in the living area that can accommodate your home office needs, and the slim wall cabinet above that ingeniously hides a 55” flat-screen TV. From much of the hardware based on licensed Frank Lloyd Wright designs to many other custom closet cabinets and hand-finished doors, custom-built butcher block dining bar, high ceilings and recessed lighting - you will find elegant and surprising touches sure to transport you back to a gracious bygone era.

This bespoke, light-filled corner residence offers open city views facing west and south. Originally built as a warehouse in 1930 and converted to residential use in the mid-1980's, the Sofia Condominium is a full-service, meticulously maintained, landmarked Art Deco building with 24-hour doorman, concierge and live-in super. Located across the street from Lincoln Center, and one block from both Central Park and Columbus Circle, amenities include a laundry room on every floor, and bicycle room.
