When you cross the threshold into residence 3-HJE you will immediately be transported into a gracious and spacious world of luxury. The 4BR/2BA home with split bedroom wings, has been impeccably gut renovated creating a seamless combination. You can even take this home to the next level by adding a washer/dryer, which is allowed in combined units with building approval. Set far back from the street, this sun-splashed, quiet home is a peaceful retreat, overlooking the Schwab House's professionally maintained gardens. Here is a look at your new home:
THE FINISHES: Recently renovated, this grand home was carefully and thoroughly thought out from the motorized blinds to the through-the-wall air conditioners that let the sun shine in. The baseboard and crown moldings give the home a classic look and the sexy dark wood floors contrast beautifully with the light, bright walls. The electric and wiring has been totally modernized as well.
THE LIGHTING: The home features several convenient touches, including recessed lighting and dimmers throughout.
THE ENTRYWAY: The spacious, arched entry opens to the foyer making a perfect transition from work to home.
THE KITCHEN: The windowed, chef's kitchen has innovative storage solutions, including hidden drawers below the cabinets and a generous pass-through to make entertaining a breeze. The renovation displays attention to detail from top to bottom, including high-end Ann Sacks floor tiles.
LIVING/DINING ROOM: The spacious and bright living room has plenty of space for entertaining and dining and splits the bedrooms providing more peace and privacy.
THE BEDROOMS: All four bedrooms are generously sized and have plenty of storage. One bedroom currently being used as an office, has a custom desk and still could fit a Queen-size pull out bed, perfect for guests.
THE CLOSETS: You want closets? How about 11, including three walk-ins, if you include space marked office on the floor plan? The closets have been outfitted by California Closets again to maximize storage.
THE BUILDING: The Schwab House is a well-run, self-managed, full-service building with 24-hour doormen and handymen, live-in super and a concierge. The amenity-laden building has two gorgeous landscaped roof decks with city, river and breathtaking sunset views, a gym, a community room with a kitchen that can be rented out for parties and a lending library with more than 8,000 books. The building is pet friendly and allows pied-a-terres, guarantors, co-purchases, parents buying for kids and vice versa.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: The building sits on Riverside Park and is a block from Fairway, two blocks from Trader Joe's and Citarella and Zabar's is also nearby. As for transportation, the 1-2-3 trains are a block away and you are just as close to three bus lines and a Citi Bike station.
