Description

HOME IS CALLING!!!

This expansive and one-of-a-kind corner three bedroom, three and one-half bathroom home faces east, west and north and offers two spacious balconies where one can enjoy dramatic City and River views, including a look at the iconic Chrysler Building and Empire State Building.

The layout of the apartment reveals an added layer of privacy as it separates the gracious space into two wings, the the entertainment wing to the right and the bedroom wing to the left of the entry foyer. Following the elegant hardwood floor into the vast entertaining area one is met with sunlight streaming through oversized windows and a sweeping view of the East River and City. The open space can be divided to create a large sitting area, perhaps in front of the beautiful fireplace, in one section and a dining area in another.

Off the entertaining area lies the first balcony, sizable enough to comfortably place a bistro table and chairs to relax and sip a cup of coffee or glass of wine while staring up 2nd Avenue or out to the River.

The long galley kitchen with two windows opens into the entertaining area and is separated from it by an island extension of the sleek black granite countertop that runs throughout the kitchen. The space is accentuated by blond and hazed glass cabinets and silver tile backsplashes.

Additionally, there are top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a six burner stove, wine fridge and two dishwashers, as well as two deep sinks. Above the stove is also a pot filler.

To the left of the foyer is the bedroom wing containing three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and an abundance of closets.

The primary bedroom, a slightly curved room with views of the Chrysler Building and a peak at the Empire State Building holds a plethora of storage options including 4 closets and a massive en-suite bathroom. The windowed bathroom has a stand-alone stall shower, a large deep soaking jacuzzi bathtub, double sinks and a walk-in closet. It offers radiant heated floors.

Following the hall from the Primary Bedroom, one meets a large walk-in closet that contains the second full bathroom. Just past the bathroom lies a second bedroom with views of the City and a large closet. Next comes the third full bathroom, this one with a stall shower and the sizable third bedroom that can easily be converted to a den or home office.

This bedroom holds the second balcony which oversees the city to the west and offers views of the Chrysler Building.

The apartment also has a powder room with a hidden door leading to the graciously sized laundry room with a large W/D.

Please Note: The square footage listed includes 118 sq. ft. of outdoor space.

Sterling Plaza is a prestigious full-service condominium with a 24-hour doorman, concierge and laundry room. This location is extremely convenient with a plethora of delicious restaurants and grocery stores, including Whole Foods, and shopping nearby.

The building is located on a charming, historic street and is close to the United Nations, Theater District, Grand Central Terminal, the East River and Central Park. Public transportation is easy with close proximity to the M49 and M15 buses as well as the 6, E, M subways.
