Enjoy the grandeur of this exquisite 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment, once a Classic 7 that has been turned into a 6-room gem. Impeccably designed and generously proportioned for your living pleasure, this gracious home sits high on the 11th floor of a full-service white-glove prewar cooperative, idyllically positioned at the corner of 72nd Street and Madison Avenue just one block from Central Park.
This is a beautifully designed residence. Expansive interiors are finely finished and bathed in natural light. Oversized windows on triple exposures to the north, east and west frame lovely views of open cityscapes and Madison Avenue. Airy 10'1" ceilings, a Namibian white marble entry gallery, tasteful moldings and millwork, rich hardwood floors, and skim-coated painted walls throughout are among the high-end details.
Entertain in style in the glamorous west-facing living room centered by a wood-burning fireplace. Culinary creations are inspired in the sunny top-of-the-line chef's kitchen appointed with fine custom German cabinetry, Calacatta gold marble counters, a large island, and premium Wolfe and Subzero appliances. Serve coffee and meals at the built-in corner banquette, or in the adjoining dining room with beautiful built-in bookshelves that also makes a comfortable den. A handsome office set privately off the gallery features extensive built-ins as well and is great for working remotely.
Refresh and renew in your serene primary bedroom suite brightened by northwest corner windows, boasting extensive closets including a walk-in, and an upscale spa bath with a Kohler soaking tub. Both full bathrooms are adorned with custom cabinetry, Waterworks fixtures, and Calacatta gold marble heightening the luxury experience.
