Exquisitely redesigned home, originally 15 rooms, has been graciously made into 12 sun filled rooms with exposures in all four directions. This home offers the perfect combination of sophistication and comfort. A rarely available apartment, with 5500 square feet on one floor, is ready to welcome its next joyful, expanding household, or sophisticated single or couple with a growing art collection and the desire for glamorous entertaining spaces.
A private elevator landing leads to a grand foyer. This is the axis to the stunning oak paneled living room with WBFP and space for multiple seating areas, a library detailed with the same golden oak paneling plus finely milled bookshelves, and the glittering, grand formal dining room. The kitchen has five large windows, features a huge island, two refrigerators, a freezer, a wine refrigerator, an additional work area with second sink, and room for a large farm table. It is a most glorious room to watch the sun rise across the city, cook for a huge party, or great place to hang out. It has exceptional storage in beautiful custom-made cabinetry and fantastic work space on counters of beautiful soap stone. Next to the kitchen is the media room or, second, informal library.
The major bedrooms are off a private gallery, set up as four bedrooms plus a study (formerly a living room) with WBFP. For smaller households, this area could be a luxurious master suite with two independent dressing rooms, two private bathrooms, and huge closets. There are two additional bedrooms, also with en-suite bathrooms, on the other side of the apartment, and perfect for guests or staff.
Numerous exquisite details include 11-foot ceilings throughout, original plaster detail on the living room ceiling, wide hallways, ceiling and panel moldings, and hardwood floors. These create a backdrop perfect for the juxtaposition of old-world elegance and modern or cutting-edge art and furnishings.
There is central air conditioning, a laundry area, an abundance of closets, powder room with ante room, six full baths, and many spaces to spread out. There are a total of six bedrooms. The apartment comes with four very large storage rooms plus two silver vaults (with approximately an additional 400-500 square feet of space).
