A home with an outdoor escape in the heart of Gramercy. This rarely available South and West facing, architecturally designed oversized one-bedroom, one bath offers a beautiful breeze, sunlight, and outstanding sunsets.
As you enter through a foyer with a closet, the beams of light draw you to the dramatic views from the large living area and adjacent private terrace, which provides a city skyscape. Custom built-in bookcases, shelves, and storage space throughout the home provide functionality and increase livable square footage. The retractable bookshelf/desk is flexible for a home office or serving a dozen guests for a sit-down meal. A compartment in the unit is large enough to store a computer monitor, and another area hides away four large wood dining leaves to expand and contract the table to meet your needs. The American-made contemporary grey DUNE sofa evokes a minimalist bespoke living and entertainment lifestyle and is included for the new homeowner. The glossy white Bisazza tile floors evoke a look of sophistication, glamor, and elegance.
The versatile open-plan, pass-thru kitchen is illuminated by the terrace’s natural light that seamlessly joins it to the living room space. The hub where cooking and living converge offers professional appliances that gleam with natural light and offer everything a full day of entertaining would necessitate. The kitchen island is multifunctional, acting as a food prep space with a sink, storage spaces, and serving bar. There are ample base and wall cabinets to store everything from dishes, appliances, and even outdoor furniture cushions.
The modern bedroom’s sleek look offers gorgeous light from three windows that showcase the terrace and skyline with extensive built-ins. The custom-built murphy bed offers the option of a sleek minimalist design that may be used as an office during the day and conducive to a luxurious rest in the evening. The built-in units are outfitted with lighting, storage, and connecting end tables. The wall of custom white lacquered closets creates a polished, modern aesthetic. Turn the corner toward the bathroom, and you are greeted by a mirrored vanity area, a perfect spot to prepare for the day, or another work-space option to manage video calls, podcasts, and other social media needs. Additional space-saving designs include a wall of custom-built-in closets that maximize storage space while maintaining the modern aesthetic.
The bathroom’s linear stacked horizontal rectangle marbled grey and white glacier tiled walls evoke a sophisticated atmosphere, while the soaking tub by Wet style provides the option for a luxurious bubble bath. The storage closet, timeless and iconic Duravit sink and TOTO toilet complete the mood of being on a permanent spa retreat.
