Huge, rarely available 4 bed, 3.5 bath Sutton Place duplex with iconic River and Bridge views from every room!
Sprawling and luxurious, this apartment offers approximately 3,000 square feet and a great flow. With 100 feet of expansive views through large picture windows framing the East River and Queensboro Bridge on both levels, you will bask in the sunshine during the day and be energized by the dramatic city views at night. Building restrictions protect your views from being obstructed by new construction.
Beautifully created through the combination of two large 2-bedroom corner apartments, this is truly a special and unique home. Enter the main level through a gracious gallery showcasing a spectacular winding glass staircase, flowing into a massive open living space, with a huge living room, den area with a wet bar and fireplace (convertible into a a bedroom), dining area and open chef's kitchen with breakfast bar. A separate gallery area discreetly sets off the powder room, as well as a large bedroom and full bath, ideal as a guest suite or home office.
Ascend the dramatic staircase to a private oasis. The huge master suite with fireplace (itself larger than many one bedroom apartments) is the epitome of luxury, offering a stylish true spa-like bath and large dressing room. The second floor also features two more sizeable bedrooms another full bath, and if that's not enough, an actual laundry room plus tons of storage!
The home was lavishly renovated by the current owners with no expense spared, but if its traditional style does not appeal to you, consider that this apartment is readily adaptable to achieve a modern aesthetic. The living area is open space that flows very well, the windows are oversized and the large kitchen is open to the dining room, with sight lines to the living room (and those awesome views). Fabulous modern elements are already in place, such as the picture windows, sleek glass staircase and the master bath, with its huge art glass tiled shower and oversized soaking tub. Rather than a renovation, it would be mostly an exercise in decoration to make give this apartment a modern makeover. What would it take? Remove the wallpaper and carpeting and you will be nearly there; paint or remove some of the cabinetry and wood trim and you are almost home; then refine the kitchen to your tastes and viola! You can have a modern dream duplex home!
