With panoramic skyline and river views for miles from every room and with southern and western exposures, this light-filled 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home offers an oasis of serenity in the heart of one of Manhattan's most exciting neighborhoods-Hell's Kitchen. Upon entering the elegant foyer of this home on The Strand's 40th floor, stunning views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline down to One World Trade await. High ceilings, open-plan living and dining spaces, two expansive bedrooms on opposite sides of the apartment and plentiful closets add to the luxurious feeling of this spectacular home. The kitchen is windowed and features a pass-through, and the separate dining alcove leads to a private balcony. The two full bathrooms, each with a tub, as well as the powder room, are all clad in Cararra marble. Upon entering The Strand luxury condominium, residents and guests are greeted by elegant landscaping, with seasonal plantings and two cascading fountains, as well as a grand, minimalist lobby. Designed by noted architect Costas Kondylis Associates, The Strand features a resident manager, 24-hour concierge service, doorman, garage parking and laundry on each floor. The entire 42nd floor is dedicated to The Strand Health Club-a swimming pool, a gym and a sundeck-all with Manhattan skyline and Hudson River views. Steam rooms, saunas and a lounge for post-workout relaxation complete this skytop retreat. The Strand is a pet-friendly community. The Hell's Kitchen neighborhood is perfectly situated for touring The Shed cultural center at Hudson Yards and the art galleries of Chelsea, taking in a Broadway show in the Theatre District and dining out. From Restaurant Row classics such as Barbetta and Bar Centrale to contemporary favorites 44&X Hell's Kitchen, Anejo, The Marshal, Meme Mediterranean, Le Prive, and Gotham West Market, the neighborhood is one of New York City's culinary hubs. A few short blocks from the Hudson River Park, residents of The Strand enjoy biking, kayaking and other adventures on water and land. Commuting and exploring the city is a breeze with the A, C, E, N, Q, R, W, 1, 2, 3 and 7 trains nearby. Can be combined with 40B to create a convertible four bedroom. Architect Jeffrey Langsam has created a floor plan for this combination.
