A rare opportunity to own a magnificent apartment of grand proportions one block from Carnegie Hall. Through a seamless combination of the A & B lines this high-floor 8-room stunner was cleverly configured with 3 elegant bedroom suites and 4 full bathrooms. A unique offering at the Alwyn Court, the iconic 1908 apartment tower famously wrapped by its intricate terra cotta facade.
Upon entry you are transported by the gallery’s soaring ceilings and art-ready walls. Watch light flood the 28-foot living room with north and east exposures, wood burning fireplace and space enough to accommodate multiple seating areas and grand piano. Panel doors lead to a formal dining room that comfortably seats 12, with a huge east-facing picture window and sun-lit south views of Carnegie Hall. The adjacent windowed kitchen and separate breakfast room connect to a useful pantry/mudroom and discreet service entrance.
The residence offers comfort and privacy with separate bedroom suites on the northern wing and a 23-foot primary bedroom to the south. Each bedroom includes multiple closets as well as en suite bathrooms. Fourth full bathroom and a vented washer/dryer sit beside the kitchen. Last but not least, a windowed home office with wet bar opens off the main gallery, and overlooks the Alwyn Court’s iconic atrium, lit by an enormous glass canopy just two floors above. Central air ducting is already installed throughout, ready for a new owner to utilize with a future HVAC system. Two private basement storage cages transfer with the sale.
The Alwyn Court is a highly sought after building in one of the most desirable locations in New York City. Amenities include full-time doorman, live-in resident manager, private storage, bike room and the breath-taking lobby atrium. Perfectly placed close to Central Park, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Broadway shows. Surrounded by world-class restaurants, including the historic Petrossian Restaurant and Caviar Boutique right downstairs. Pet friendly with Pied-a-terre's and sublets allowed.
