The Upper East Side's Historical District, in particular between Fifth and Madison Avenues, is home to some of the most desirable residential real estate in New York City.
The Westbury Hotel was developed by George Frederick Pelham in 1927, and was converted to condominiums in 1999. It has maintained a classic, pre-war charm while offering modern amenities that one should expect in a white-glove, full-service building. Situated on a tree-lined street less than 1 block from Central Park, it is truly one of a kind, and with only 48 residences in total, is considered one of New York City's most sought after residences.
Through the incorporation of additional space on the floor, Unit #4B is unique in that it is the largest 3 bedroom layout in the building's “B” line, at over 1,800 square feet. This beautiful home offers 10 windows throughout, all of which are Eastern facing with spectacular views over Madison Avenue. Upon entry you will find a grand, sprawling living room, perfect for entertaining. The coffered ceilings and Herringbone floors exemplify the elegance and grandeur of this home. The new, city windows provide a serene, pin-drop quiet living experience.
Enter the primary bedroom through a corridor that has been tastefully renovated to include a gallery of 3 full size closets, each with antique paneled mirrors.
The beautifully renovated, marble en-suite is equipped with a rainfall shower, separate soaking tub and a double sink vanity.
The windowed, eat-in kitchen is equipped with marble countertops and backsplash, as well as top of the line appliances, including a Thermador 6-burner range, a paneled Thermador refrigerator and dishwasher, Sub-Zero wine cooler, and a built-in Miele coffee station.
The main corridor off of the entry leads to 2 separate bedrooms, and is equipped with an abundance of closet space, which includes a LG Washer & Dryer. The spacious 2nd bedroom also has an en-suite, and mirrors the charm of the primary bedroom with a corridor to enter that is equipped with dual closets. The third bedroom, or alternatively a home office, includes a custom, wall to wall built-in closet. All 3 bedrooms have windows that are Eastern facing and allow for excellent morning light.
Building amenities include a 24-hour concierge, a fitness room, bicycle storage room, wine cellar, and valet.
Pets and Pied-a-terre are welcomed.
The Westbury provides a quintessential Upper East Side address, conveniently located within a well-established school system and surrounded by wonderful dining and shopping options.
