No better combination of modern class and historical whim can be found than at the Norfolk Atrium in Manhattans Lower East Side. Unit #501 offers a warm and welcoming abode wrapped in a highly stylized aesthetic. Filled with natural light, subtle canted angles, polished concrete and wide-open spaces, it is sure to delight tenants and guests alike.
Upon entering the unit, one is greeted immediately by a spacious living/dining area, complete with storage closet, cozy breakfast nook, and additional decorative nook leading to the master bedroom. An abundance of light emitting from the two windows reflects off the white walls, smooth ceiling and floors, and wall-to-wall kitchen cupboards.
While most New York Kitchens seem to be shoved into tiny corners that are impossible to navigate, 501s is embedded into the living space, offering just enough distance to distinguish itself as its own feature. Its greatest strength lies in its sleek cabinetry and modern appliances. One will notice the fridge is designed in the same manner as the cabinet doors and drawers, blending right in to create one continuous design from floor to ceiling. The kitchen comes complete with reflective charcoal-colored granite countertops that continue into the back wall, offering copious light from both the kitchen ceiling fixtures and living room windows.
The living room is very wide, and its hinge windows have a turning latch mechanism, a unique find in New York that gives it a very European feel. Were one to leave the window open, theyd feel a pleasant breeze weaving itself around bold columns, through classy floor-to-ceiling floating shelves, across inviting sandalwood flooring and into the chic bathroom.
The sand color found in the living area is echoed all across the restroom, interrupted only by smooth glass and porcelain surfaces. The toilet is also highly modernized, with all the plumbing inside the wall and eco-friendly buttons for disposing of waste. The bathroom is also very open and more spacious than other New York apartments, as is the office/den on the other side of the wall it shares.
The office/den is accessed by a fun yet subtle sliding barn door, barely noticeable in the living room when its closed. This multi-use room features a closet, and can also provide a calm oasis catered to the needs of the tenant.
The master bedroom will be an envy to all, as will its spacious walk-in closet, large enough for the in-unit washer/dryer. The polished concrete can be found flanking the open window space, offering a break in the wall and giving the sense of new zone of the room, which can perhaps be transformed into a reading or exercise nook. One will be amazed at the rooms dazzling window, which is quite literally floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, offering pleasant views of foliage and the charming historical buildings of Norfolk Street.
