A one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a stunning and turnkey junior penthouse on the 20th floor of a prewar UES Co-op. Located at the prime corner of 78th and Third, this thoughtful and artfully-designed, spacious 2-bed 2-bath apartment came as a result of an extensive renovation from newly-finished floors to a sleek open kitchen with grey hand painted cabinetry and Arabescato marble slabs, with custom cabinetry throughout. The stylish large living room with both south and west exposure has added crown moldings and is centered by a wood burning fireplace that has been upgraded with a new hearth and mantle. A perfect space for entertaining.
The master bedroom is tucked away from the living area, designed with full-height double closet doors with antique mirrors. The spacious corner 2nd bedroom enjoys two exposures and has ensuite access to the full jack and jill bath with a window that also services as a powder room when you are entertaining. New medicine cabinets, a new vanity, sink and hardware in the master bath, and features new Toto toilets in both baths.
Flooding light pours into the home all day long, with wonderful unobstructed views to the south and west, capturing The Carlyle Hotel, Billionaires Row, The Empire State Building and other iconic buildings make the apartment a truly special jewel. Custom shades are found throughout the apartment including blackout shades in both bedrooms.
