This artfully designed 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath residence in the legendary Hotel des Artistes features a dramatic 26' long living room with soaring 18' ceiling and 16' windows with open city views. This loft-like home provides abundant space for gracious entertaining, including room for a concert grand piano the current owner hosts intimate concerts in keeping with the Hotel des Artistes' tradition of salon entertaining of fellow artists, musicians, poets and playwrights. Designed by Robert Henry, an architect known for his emphasis on wellness, the living room features a stunning wall of built-ins with a Zen garden of candles and plants. A separate dining room is a few steps down from the living room. A windowed L-shaped kitchen with service exit and a half-bath complete the first floor. Up the floating staircase is a library/office with a built-in desk. Also on this upper level, the serene windowed primary bedroom features abundant closets and a luxurious spa-like ensuite bath, with an oversized tub. And a second bedroom has its own bath across the hall, where there is also the washer/dryer. This home features hardwood and slate floors, beautiful custom cabinetry, striking recessed lighting, and access to the building's elevators from both floors. Due to the double height nature of des Artistes apartments, this home is on the 7th and 8th floors.
Hotel des Artistes is a full-service luxury building with a 24-hour elevator operator and concierge and amenities not often seen in prewar buildings: a swimming pool, roof garden, two workout rooms and a squash/basketball court. Residents are also afforded discounted dining as well as room service from the Leopard at the des Artistes. This pre-war cooperative is located on historic West 67 Street, one of the most sought after blocks on the West Side, close to Lincoln Center and Central Park. West 67th Street is known as 'Artists' Row,' in recognition of the double height studio apartments on the block that have over the years housed many artists, writers and musicians.
