Description

This grandly proportioned and elegant prewar home is located in the famed Alwyn Court, one of the most ornate buildings in New York City, ideally situated one block south of Central Park, one block north of Carnegie Hall, and across the street from the New York Athletic Club. Meticulously renovated, this home features beautiful parquet floors, beamed ceilings, picture moldings and stunning mahogany doors that once graced the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The spacious living room with its 10’5" ceiling faces north with three windows overlooking West 58th Street.

The oversized bedroom, also facing West 58th Street, has a walk-in California Closet. You enter this gracious home via a foyer with a stylish open kitchen offering a breakfast bar, custom Shaker style cabinets and stainless steel appliances including a Miele dishwasher. An adjacent dining area has a window overlooking the building’s atrium with its renowned trompe l’oeil design.

A renovated bath offers double sinks and a separate toilet stall. Complemented with ample storage, there are a total of 4 closets as well as spacious built-in cabinetry in the living room. A private storage unit in the building is included in the sale. Alwyn Court, built in 1909, was designed by the architects Harde & Short in the style of King Francis I, the great art patron of Renaissance France.

Its lavish facade features glazed terra cotta ornamentation in the form of cherubs, flowers, plants and animals, including the King’s royal symbol, fire-breathing crowned salamanders. In the 1980’s, the central courtyard was transformed by the illusionist painter Richard Haas into a spectacular atrium with a trompe l’oeil design mimicking the look of stonework. Alwyn Court has New York Landmark status and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, Alwyn Court is an elegant, white glove building, with a 24-hour doorman and a resident manager. The building allows pied-a-terres and purchase by foreign buyers. Pets are permitted with approval as are washer/dryers.

There is an Assessment of $314.61 per month until April, 2025.
