A Rare Upper East Side Beauty
This exciting seven room, three bedroom, three bathroom cooperative, was recently and completely renovated in positively chic fashion. Brilliantly sunny on the 14th floor, this apartment faces east, west and north through oversized windowsand boasts a split-bedroom layout, formal dining, an eat-in kitchen and a separate, additional office.
One enters Apartment 14D via a foyer and wide central hallway which provide an immediate line-of-sight connecting the apartment's two formal entertaining spaces--the living room and the dining roomto the south and north, respectively. Every room in this apartment features custom cabinetry, constructed by a master craftsman in Italy: this includes a substantial book case which runs the length of the living room, while a special Rosewood, antique mirrored and painted wood bar is nestled in the dining room.
A windowed eat-in kitchen boasts bright sky and open city views to the north and west. The space is primarily outfitted with solid white and inset glass custom cabinets, richly accented with brass Hamilton Sinkler hardwarewhile a wall of dark grey accent cabinetry and built-in banquette counterpose. Countertops and backsplash are beautiful grey and white honed marble slabs; stainless steel appliances include a Bosch speed oven and microwave, Thermador six-burner stove, Waterworks pot filler and farm sinkand a paneled dishwasher and refrigerator. Adjacent the kitchen is an adjoining laundry closet, equipped with a full-size washer/dryer--and the apartment's service entrance. Both the washer/dryer and the kitchen stove are vented to the exterior.
Located on the eastern side of the apartment's central hallway, the primary bedroom suite includes two fully-outfitted walk-in closets and an elegant, renovated bathroom. Clad in a neutral palette, the bathroom features polished nickel Waterworks fixtures, a custom, painted vanity, herringbone-patterned marble tile and a large inset medicine cabinet, for extra storage. What with its private entry hallway, and separation from the apartment's secondary bedroom wing, the configuration of this bedroom affords true privacy.
The secondary bedroom wing is situated on the other side of the apartment's central hallway, to the west--where two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an office are located. In their renovation, the current owners reconfigured the apartment's floorplan slightly, and a new office was a key, thoughtful addition: outfitted with a desk and built-in shelving, its dimensions are large enough to accommodate an additional seating area for lounging or Zooming while working from home.
The graciously-sized secondary bedrooms are located on the apartment's northern and southern flanks, respectively. The south-facing bedroom is equipped with rich blue built-ins, including a desk and bookshelf--in addition to an outfitted walk-in closet, and an ensuite, fully renovated, windowed bath. Meanwhile, the third, north-facing bedroom, boasts a high and bright double exposure with open city views to the north and west.
Additional features of this apartment include: Hamilton Sinkler hardware and Waterworks fittings throughout, through-the-wall heating and air conditioning units, white oak floors, and nine fully-outfitted closets, three of which are walk-ins.
