One of the most impeccable and impressive restorations ever of an iconic Apthorp home.
This special three bedroom, three bath home at one of the West Side's most famous landmarked apartment houses is a true gem!
Boasting soaring 11 foot ceilings, a signature marble and mosaic tile entrance gallery, beautiful herringbone oak flooring and plaster reliefs on the walls and ceilings, this bright and cheerful home has all outside rooms with open views. Newly renovated, the dramatic and unique prewar details blend seamlessly with today's conveniences such as multiple zoned central air, high speed wiring, and new period style double windows that seal out all city noise for a tranquil home environment.
The corner living room faces west and north, affording wonderful light and views to Riverside Park, the Hudson River and beyond. Off the living room is a wonderful den or third bedroom. The primary bedroom is spacious with fabulous built in storage. The stunning windowed en suite marble bathroom is outfitted with luxurious fixtures and features a soaking tub, separate shower, and water closet.
Down the hall is the third bedroom offering multiple closets as well as a beautiful en suite windowed bathroom with combined soaking tub/shower and marble vanity.
The very large windowed eat in kitchen has top of the line appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range, and two dishwashers. The sink, fittings, and tile backsplash are all by Waterworks. The solid wood custom cabinets provide lots of storage and the Calcutta marble island makes the kitchen a chef's delight. Finishing off the kitchen is limestone flooring, and a concealed washer/dryer. The third windowed bath is off the kitchen which is convenient for guests.
