Situated on Sutton Place in one of Rosario Candela's finest buildings this exquisite 9-room home was decorated by renowned AD 100 interior designer, Markham Roberts, who created individually layered spaces with rich wall coverings and finishes in a youthful classic style in tandem with Candela's refined architecture. Entry to this spacious, full floor, 3 bedroom residence is through a private elevator landing with Indian block print fabric and contrasting borders leading to the larger entertaining rooms. The expansive corner living room, with richly stained oak floors, is centered around the wood-burning fireplace with its Neo-classical marble mantel. Dramatic high gloss navy lacquered walls reflect sunlight from five over-sized windows facing south and west. A pair of mahogany doors, original to the apartment, open to the gracious dining room, with walls covered in a classic French floral fabric--suggesting the feeling of dining in a garden. The handsome library offers a cozy and more intimate space for entertaining with colorful red glazed wood paneled walls and built-in bookcases flanking another wood-burning fireplace with marble mantel.
The large, windowed, eat-in chef's kitchen features a sizeable island and breakfast area with a roomy corner banquette for informal dining. Top-of the-line appliances include: a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking range with grill and double ovens, Miele dishwasher and a wine cooler. Off the kitchen is an office/playroom and staff hall with a maid's room with a full bath. Beyond is laundry area with washer/dryer and utility sink. A lovely powder room is tucked away down a short hall from the entry gallery.
The private bedroom wing is perfectly separated from the public rooms by a classically designed hallway lined with custom bookshelves. The corner primary bedroom with its ensuite marble bath and dressing area is spacious and bright with views of the river and charming Sutton Square. The additional two bedrooms are large and sunny and feature ensuite, windowed marble baths.
Beautiful herringbone hardwood floors, mahogany paneled doors, original brass hardware, broad baseboards, generous built-ins and walk-in closets abound throughout this impeccably renovated apartment. There is central air and a customized sound system plus a basement storage room.
