Enjoy a spacious two bedroom two bath residence at the Apthorp. The high ceilings and large south facing windows that overlook the beautifully landscaped Apthorp courtyard, enhance this grand proportioned apartment. Off the foyer is a newly renovated windowed kitchen with stainless appliances. An original Apthorp mantel and decorative plaster moldings on the walls and ceiling of the living room add to the Old World grandeur. Privacy is assured with a large master bedroom and en suite bath on one side of the apartment while the second bedroom and en suite bath are on the other.
Ada Louise Huxtable, the rigorous grande dame of architecture criticism, had touted second-floor living as an urban ideal, he notes, for its treetop views and human scale. Built in 1908 by William Astor, The Apthorp is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is one of Manhattan's most famous and coveted residences. Among the many desirable features are 24-hour gate attendants, doormen, handy men, on site property manager and garage. A suite of amenities designed by the AD100 Designer, Stephen Sills, includes a 6,500 square foot fitness center with sauna, children's playroom, party room, bicycle storage, a beautifully landscaped courtyard garden and drive way.
