Modern and elegant gem in the heart of Midtown’s Cultural District, Residence 18A is a stunning split two-bedroom home with an expansive great room and soaring 10-foot ceilings accentuated by the floor-to-ceiling glass that surrounds the home.
With gracious proportions, and spanning nearly 2,000 SF, the interiors of 18A exude a thoughtful sense of customized craft and refinement never found in new development. Perched high on the 18th floor, the corner great room is bathed in light all throughout the day, with beautiful northern and eastern exposures and views all the way down 53rd Street to the East River.
Adjacent to the great room is the open chef’s kitchen custom designed by Foster + Partners. A full suite of Gaggenau appliances are housed in wire-brushed oak cabinetry with integrated pulls and bronze detailing. The center island was upgraded with a custom piece of Italian Carrara marble to provide room for counter seating.
The split bedroom layout provides the utmost privacy. The spacious primary suite spans over 30 feet in length and comes complete with an oversized dressing room completely outfitted by Poliform. A true retreat, the spa-like bath features heated Silver Striatio travertine floors, oak vanity with a Silver Striato travertine slab countertop and integrated sink, and a glass-enclosed shower and water closet, all complemented with Aquabrass fixtures throughout.
Additional apartment features include a private key-locked elevator, guest powder room, custom Poliform built-ins and closets, year-round zoned temperature control via a four-pipe fan coil HVAC system, automated shades, Carlisle eight-inch wide-plank white oak flooring with supplemental perimeter under-floor radiant heating, and custom lighting throughout. A separate concealed closet houses the Miele washer and dryer.
Residents of 100 East 53rd Street enjoy white-glove services and amenities which include a 24-hour attended lobby, top-of-the-line wellness facility, 60-foot sunlit swimming pool, sauna and steam room, yoga and pilates rooms, and separate library and lounge.
