Stunning half-floor on the 35th floor of the Hampshire House with stunning direct views of Central Park. Quintessential pre-war service of the Hampshire House contrasted by the modern comfort and design of this apartment that can be either a comfortable home or an extravagant pied-a-terre.
A private elevator-landing leads directly to the foyer and the sun filled living room. This unit was a combination of two apartments and has been renovated with no expenses spared on finishes, floors, bathrooms and kitchens.
12 Windows, 3 exposures (N,S,W,) in this light filled oasis. As well as partial river views, the Southern exposure is changing dramatically with the new super towers on 57th Street. Feel completely immersed in the park in the solarium off the park facing bedroom.
Though the apartment has been completely renovated, there is tremendous opportunity to make alterations to the functional floor plan as there are no structural elements in the walls (with the exception of a few water risers). Furthermore the owner has received approval from the board to enlarge a window facing the park as well as for a bathroom on the south side. The elevator landing as well as the service corridor have been purchased from the cooperative as well.
