Beautifully renovated and in triple mint condition, this contemporary 'classic six' apartment at Emory Roth's prewar 15 West 81st Street, boasts gracious proportions, two oversized bedrooms plus a staff room (currently open to the kitchen), three full bathrooms, as well as a large eat-in kitchen and a perfectly square formal dining room.
A grand 24-foot long entry gallery with custom granite floors connects one to both the living room and dining room, and serves as the perfect canvas for large-scale art. The living room, measuring approximately 17 feet by 27 feet, features 3 large windows facing 80th Street and low-lying brownstones, dark-stained hardwood floors, built-in book shelves, as well as custom recessed lighting. Currently configured as a media room with a built-in dining banquette, the dining room faces west and is open to the custom eat-in kitchen.
The SeiMatic windowed chef's kitchen is equipped with radiant heat floors and top-of-the-line appliances, including a Wolf range, Miele refrigerator, and Sub Zero wine cooler. A large island, as well as counter seating, provides generous surface for both cook prep and entertaining. A staff room with a built-in pull out bed and a radiant heat full bath and washer & dryer are located just off the kitchen.
The separate bedroom wing features a massive master bedroom with windowed dressing room, an expansive and custom-outfitted closet, as well as an en-suite marble bath with double vanity, radiant heat floors, and large shower. The over-sized second bedroom offers plentiful storage and custom built-ins, as well as an en-suite bath with radiant heat floors.
