Description

Welcome to your very sophisticated "classic six" room home in a distinguished boutique prewar building at a premier address between Madison and Park Avenues. With 14 windows, and triple exposures: South, East and West, this apartment offers fine architectural details, and a gracious, functional layout. It comprises: two adjacent, elegant entertaining rooms and two fine bedrooms each with ensuite bath, in-unit washer dryer, a well-appointed windowed chef's kitchen with top of the line appliances, as well a staff room with bath that can easily become a study, nursery, or guest room. The Foyer leads to a graceful gallery perfect for showcasing artwork.

It opens unto a south and east facing impeccably scaled Living Room with a marble mantled wood burning fireplace, beamed high ceilings, tasteful wainscoting, refined moldings and an inviting Bay Window looking onto charming townhouses. The sunny Formal Dining Room facing east is graced with De Gournay wallpaper and beautiful herring bone mahogany floors. The spacious Master Bedroom enjoys double exposure south and west, a windowed marble bath with top of the line fixtures as well as two closets, one of which is a large "walk-in". The adjacent west facing bedroom with built in shelves, cabinets and desk offers another charming bay window.

Currently, it serves as a den/media room. With an exquisite layout, unique to the building, this home will appeal to the discerning buyer. Built in 1926, this building only has 16 apartments in total and no more than two apartments per floor, each sharing a private elevator landing. Savvy New Yorkers appreciate this very chic address.

Priced to sell, this property is a must see. There is a 2% Flip tax paid by the Buyer.
