Prewar charm and contemporary updates abound in this spacious and sunny four-bedroom, three-bathroom Gramercy duplex co-op filled with the classic and modern elements that capture the essence of New York City living.
Situated on the 13th and 14th floors, this beautifully combined residence greets you with 9.5-foot-tall beamed ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors and oversized windows framing unobstructed views of the city, including the Empire State Building and One World Trade. Relax in front of the wood-burning fireplace in the large living room, or host lavish gatherings in the corner dining room. The contemporary kitchen features glass-front cabinetry and high-end appliances, including a gas cooktop, oven and dishwasher. Two oversized secondary corner bedrooms on this floor are tucked down a private hallway. Each offers bright double exposures, excellent closets, built-in cabinetry and easy access to an updated, windowed bathroom with a tub/shower and double vanity. Off the gallery, pocket doors reveal a spacious den, ideal as a home office or fourth bedroom, close to a renovated, windowed guest bathroom. An oversized laundry room, mudroom and storage area keep belongings out of sight and nod to the generous closet space found throughout the home.
A floating staircase flanked by a wall of bookcases invites you to the magnificent full-floor owner's suite. Wake up to sunrise views in the sprawling east-facing bedroom featuring a built-in desk area. A swoon-worthy walk-in closet and a private bathroom complete the tranquil haven.
242 East 19th Street is a handsome well-run Art Deco building trimmed in brick and limestone. Residents of the full-service cooperative enjoy attentive 24-hour doorman/elevator service, a modern laundry room, bike and resident storage (for a fee), a garden and a glorious landscaped roof deck with panoramic views. Maintenance includes electricity and gas. Pets, co-purchases, guarantors and parents buying for children permitted with board approval. Sorry, no pieds--terre.
Located in the heart of Gramercy Park, with immediate access to Union Square, the Flatiron District and Greenwich Village, this home is surrounded by world-class shopping, dining, entertainment and nightlife venues in every direction. Playgrounds and green space fill the neighborhood, and three blocks south, Stuyvesant Square Park offers lovely greenery and a dog park. Nearby N/Q/R/W, 4/5/6 and L trains, excellent bus service and CitiBike stations put the rest of the city within easy reach.
