One Sutton Place South was designed by one of the pre-eminent architects of his time, Rosario Candela, and was built by the esteemed firm of Cross & Cross. Completed in 1925, this sought after white-glove prewar building is notable for its stylistically distinctive limestone clad façade. Located at the corner of East 57th Street and Sutton Place South, the 14-story cooperative features a triple-arched covered port cochere driveway and also enjoys a private garden leading down to the East River. The impeccably staffed building provides tenant shareholders with a private gym and individual storage rooms.
Both stunning and beautiful, the 3,175 square foot simplex enjoys more than sixty feet of sweeping East River views from fifteen windows and is ideally situated to take full advantage of the verdant canopy of the very special building garden. Accessed via a semi-private elevator landing, the beautifully proportioned apartment is flooded with sunlight throughout from three exposures. Upon entry, a Foyer opens to the grand rectangular Gallery, leading to a truly marvelous suite of Entertaining Rooms. Adjacent to the Living Room, an enormous Library is lined with bookshelves and features a floor-to-ceiling window. The lovely corner Living Room spans 29 feet across the East River and includes a pair of balconied floor-to-ceiling French doors and a wood-burning fireplace. Equally impressive is the large, south-facing Dining Room. The very gracious private quarters are comprised an especially wonderful corner Master Bedroom with a spacious en-suite Master Bathroom. A charming Guest Bedroom, also with an en-suite Bathroom overlooks the townhouses of street-lined street to the north. Closets abound in this sun-filled residence. Completing the layout, there is a big Chef’s Kitchen with Pantry, and a Breakfast Room which enjoys pleasant outlooks over the river. There is also a Powder Room and a Staff Room with an en-suite Bathroom.
Original architectural details, beautifully proportioned rooms with ten foot ceilings, exceptionally large windows, a wood burning fireplace and an extremely desirable and versatile circular floor plan distinguish this wonderful residence. It is a divinely chic rendition of the ultimate grand pied-a-terre, and truly embodies old world charm and elegance.
