An incredibly chic and sophisticated classic six-room residence at 15 West 81st Street. The entire apartment has been perfectly renovated resulting in a stylish setting like no other located in one of the top Upper West Side Cooperatives. Every inch of the apartment features custom renovations or perfectly restored pre-war details. The blend of both is truly superb.
Upon entering you are met with a dramatic entrance gallery that stretches nearly 27 feet and with perfectly restored herringbone floors and stunning hand-crafted wall coverings. The gallery leads to a grand scale living room measuring 16 by 27 feet adorned with a classic decorative fireplace and providing an incredible space for lavish entertaining and comfortable living. The rational floor plan includes a formal dining room at the opposite end of the gallery with perfectly square proportions measuring 17 by 17 feet and which easily converts into a sizable family or media room leaving enough room for casual dining.
The large windowed, eat-in kitchen features a stunning tile floor, custom cabinetry, and all of the best high-end appliances including a SubZero fridge, a Wolf range and vented hood, and a Miele dishwasher. The original casement window has been lovingly restored. The staff room is intact with a full size, vented washer/dryer, a wine fridge, and a renovated full bath and can easily convert to a comfortable third bedroom with an en suite bath.
The bedroom wing is completely separate from the living areas. The massive corner primary suite measures 14 by 24 feet with historic brownstone views and an eastern window with a view towards Central Park. The primary suite features a full-length dressing room equipped with custom closets and extensive storage space. The en-suite primary bath has been perfectly renovated featuring beautiful marble, a large custom double sink vanity, and a separate rain shower and a deep soaking tub all outfitted with top-of-the-line English fixtures from Lefroy Brooks.
The second bedroom measures nearly 17' by 13' with sunny courtyard views, two large walk-in closets, and custom built-in bookshelves. The second full bath doubles as a powder room featuring floor-to-ceiling marble and classic, high-end fixtures and finishes.
This residence also features through-the-wall AC, new windows, custom window treatments with gorgeous drapery, a completely integrated sound system, perfectly restored solid wood herringbone floors, and pre-war details galore including tall beamed ceilings, solid wood doors, and classic moldings.
