Description

TERRACE LOVERS DREAM PENTHOUSE This glamorous penthouse with two terraces is the crown jewel. A bold blend of past and present for the discerning buyer in search of a gracious home fully recently renovated with a beautiful mix of classic and modern design. No detail has been overlooked to restore this apartment to true Sutton Place splendor.

From the moment the private elevator entry opens to the foyer of custom inlaid marble mosaic flooring with 6' marble baseboards and stone finish painted walls, the apartment shines with elegance and meticulous finishes. The living room with 18' ft ceilings and dramatic French windows crowned with arched Lunettes open to a designed-for-entertaining, 30' ft, North facing terrace with decorative architectural details. The living room is highlighted by a wood burning fireplace with a custom molded glass mantle, magnificent Parquet de Versailles oak floors, suede covered walls, trompe l'oeil hand painted ceiling mimicking wood grain, neo-Gothic crown molding, and distinctive bronzed-painted wood door and window frames. The hallmark of the dramatic dining room are walls depicting scenes of chariots and warriors crafted in Plaster of Paris.

Behind the panels are closets for extensive storage. The large South facing window brings beautiful daylight and Lutron lighting sets the mood for elegant night-time dining. The windowed, chef's kitchen features Porcelanosa cabinetry, stunning marble countertops and backsplash as well as top of the line appliances which include a SubZero side by side refrigerator/freezer, Miele oven and stove with vented hood, Miele microwave, additional SubZero refrigerator and freezer drawers, Grohe fixtures, a pull-out stainless steel plating table, 28 bottle wine cooler and more. An elegant powder room completes the entertaining area. The luxurious master bedroom suite with South facing terrace and two ensuite bathrooms is on the lower floor.

The bedroom has elegant Bebilaqua fabric on the walls and a wood burning fireplace. One beautiful bathroom is all grey and white marble with mirrored walls. There is a built-in vanity, cabinets, and drawers for plenty of storage.

The second master bathroom is paneled in Wenge wood with Wenge plank flooring, Travertine marble, and a shower with 24' rain shower head and Porcelanosa tiles, soak tub, plus built-in mirrored closets. Both bathrooms are windowed and have heated marble floors,Toto washlet toilets, and Sardinelli imported fixtures. The second master bathroom leads to a private room with a large South facing window ideal for either a private office, gym, or guest bedroom.

The walk-in custom closet includes a built-in safe. The elegant curved staircase begins with two bowed marble swell steps and leads to the upper floor. At the top of the staircase is a spacious room ready for the new owner to create their own library, entertainment room, large home office, or even an artist's studio.

Also on the second floor is another bedroom with an East facing window and ensuite black and white marble bathroom. The apartment includes top quality systems such as Lutron lighting throughout, central HVAC, a stacked washer/dryer, and a storage bin in the basement. Heated marble floors in the hallway, dining room, and both master bathrooms. All the electric and plumbing have been upgraded beyond today's standards.

This extraordinary terraced Penthouse is designed in the highest quality for the luxury lifestyle and entertaining discerning buyers seek. Just newly renovated, this PH is a must see to be appreciated. 322 East 57th Street is among a handful of "storied" buildings in Manhattan considered an architectural gem.

Built in 1929 by Harry M. Clawson, the neo-Classical limestone facade building consists of 21 floors made up of 19 apartments. It is one of a handful of 'studio' apartments in the city, a reference from a by-gone era for apartments that feature soaring double-height living room ceilings with living areas split on two levels.The building has long been home to those who seek a gracious lifestyle and is considered one of the most elegant and prestigious co-ops in Manhattan.

Residents may enjoy exclusive catering and dining privileges from the chic Mr. Chow's restaurant next door. 322 East 57th Street is pied-a-terre and pet friendly and conveniently located in the prestigious Sutton area extending Billionaire's Row, just down the block from Whole Foods and the East River Promenade.
