Pre-war elegance meets post-war luxury in this fully renovated designer home! Apartment 5C is a 3.5 room apartment…easily convertible to 2-bedrooms. From the moment you enter, there is a warm pre-war feel while at the same time providing high-end, contemporary finishes in both the kitchen and master bath.
All rooms lead off of the true centerpiece of this extraordinary home — a gorgeous, oversized entrance foyer, flanked with closets, custom built-ins, crown moldings and baseboards. The spacious living room is sun-drenched in eastern light. A clever dining area has been delineated, perfect for entertaining. The chef’s kitchen has been enlarged into a smart, square-shaped design and features top-of-line, stainless steel appliances — including a six-burner Viking Professional Series stove, Bosch dishwasher and GE Monogram refrigerator. There are gorgeous granite counter tops, as well as ceramic subway tile backsplashes — all beautifully showcased by under-cabinet lighting and Fabbian Cubetto lighting overhead. The spacious master bedroom features a walk-in closet/dressing room of your dreams and leads to an oversized master bath with imported tiles, a large glassed-in shower stall, and custom cabinetry with shelving, drawers and room for a laundry hamper. New window treatments and blackout shades complete the superb master bedroom! Maximum storage has been achieved throughout the apartment, not only by its five closets but also with built-ins in the foyer and dining areas. Some important features to note: All light switches are Lutron with dimmers, the apartment was recently repainted, the floors have been refinished, and all new modern light fixtures were installed. There is even a media closet with buried wires as well as a sound system with built-in speakers in the living room, kitchen and bedroom.
