Welcome to this stunning, classic six condo boasting breathtaking views of Carnegie Hall. Immaculately designed, this 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is a portrait of perfectly paired classic architecture with elegant modern design. The home is stately proportioned for large scale entertaining given the sweeping 47-foot long by 30-foot wide entertaining space.
Interiors were done by Eric Cohler, leaving every inch of this 2,587-square-foot home designed to perfection. Features include new herringbone oak floors that match the 1922 originals, large sash windows with custom treatments and quadruple exposures, high ceilings with crown molding, custom millwork, hand-painted grass cloth and wool wall coverings, recessed museum-style lighting throughout, imported glass and chrome hardware, direct elevator entry, central heating and cooling, a pair of working fireplaces, custom closets with integrated storage, a windowed home office, and a convenient in-unit washer/dryer.
Beyond a private elevator vestibule and a gracious foyer adorned with a walk-in coat closet, the home flows into formal living and dining spaces. The grand living room has a fireplace and leads into the library and dining room through custom French doors. The windowed kitchen is equipped with sleek marble countertops and backsplashes, custom cabinetry, a large pantry with a wine fridge, and a suite of high-end stainless steel appliances from Wolf, Viking, and Sub-Zero. The office sits just behind the kitchen.
The quiet master suite has its own vestibule, dual exposure, a fireplace, a massive dressing room with integrated shelving and storage, and a sublime en-suite bathroom with marble accents, double sinks, WaterWorks fixtures, and a massive windowed wet room with multiple showerheads and a sculptured free-standing soaking tub. Currently used as a library, the second bedroom has a huge closet and a windowed marble en-suite. A third bedroom—with its own closet and en-suite completes the space.
