Welcome to Apartment West 21C, a 2200 square foot 3-4 bedroom duplex featuring 4 terraces with gorgeous views north, south and west. This amazing home was designed by renowned Italian architect Leopoldo Rosati--beautifully sophisticated yet warmly comfortable. Rosati explains what he and the owners had in mind in his beautiful coffee table book featuring his creative work in New York City. "The design intent was to bring the Italian Neapolitan inspired traditional style into the heart of the city." Downstairs you will find a proper entry, formal dining room (which could serve as the 4th bedroom), large living room with L-shaped den (that could easily serve as the formal dining area), and great kitchen with a housekeeper's sleeping nook. There is a full bathroom adjacent to the dining room as well as very generous storage on this main level. The stair design connecting the first and second floors is a strong element in the apartment giving interest and depth to the home. The second floor has three main areas--the master suite with generous closets and storage plus access to 2 terraces, the second bedroom with terrace access and the office (third bedroom upstairs) along with the hall bathroom. The terrace design layout was inspired by minimal Japanese garden architecture. The southern terrace is protected by two automatic retractable awnings for those sunny hours and alfresco dining. The Gotham Condominium is a popular and well known full service luxury residential building. There is a full time doorman and concierge, full health club, 80' heated salt-water swimming pool with adjacent sauna, playroom, party/meeting room with catering kitchen and lovely outdoor common garden/terrace. The building is conveniently located within one block of the Express Lexington 4,5,6 Line and Q trains and crosstown bus service. Whole Foods is across the street and Fairway is 1/2 block away. This area is a mecca for fine dining and great shopping and is mid way between Central Park and Carl Schurz Park. You simply cannot find a more elegant, unique, well-designed property with 800+ square feet of outdoor space at this price in the city in such a convenient location. We would be very happy to set up a video tour and then a personal visit for you. Showings are limited now to Monday and Tuesday afternoon after 1:30 in the afternoon.
