Extensively renovated, double-height, duplex apartment in the Atelier, an artist studio building from about 1903. The building's original elements have been preserved: an intimate lobby, large doorman-operated, cast-iron elevator, and electrified gas fixtures on the landings. In the apartment these include a double height window looking north over the Upper West Side, a wide mezzanine balcony overlooking a grand, 17' double-height living room, a working fireplace, and west facing windows. This apartment, 5FW, is on the 9th and 10th floors.
The first floor also has a large entry foyer, gourmet kitchen, large dining room, third bedroom/or studio, and a powder room. On the upper level are a master bedroom suite, with a huge walk-in closet and bath, a guest suite with bath and washer/dryer, a second entrance to the main elevator landing, plentiful storage and clothing closets, and a built-in home office overlooking the studio.
The kitchen is for a serious cook with Wolf cook-top, refrigerator and freezer drawers, Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers, Bofi cabinetry and large center island, a five fixture master bath, with tub, shower and two sinks. There are approximately 47' of built in cabinets in the living room and dining room, a long wall of bookcases, and a library ladder. The master bedroom has built in dressers, a huge walk-in closet, and a huge master bath, with both shower and tub. The remodel also includes Mitsubishi central air-conditioning , including 5 zones., and a washer dryer. Fios is available, and the building is redoing its wonderful roof deck.
