SANCTUARY IN HARLEM...This expansive 3-bedroom and 2.5-bathroom residence with private terrace (487sf) is a rare first-time offering that features a unique and generous layout. Upon entry one is immediately taken by the openness of the space as the living and dining areas measure 22'6" x 17'8" with South facing floor-to-ceiling windows that peer directly onto a lush and verdant terrace. The open kitchen design is anchored by an oversized island, perfect for cooking and entertaining, with grey-honed Caesarstone countertops and coordinating Hanssem melamine cabinetry with a suite of Viking appliances, plus an 18-bottle wine refrigerator, Italian Blanco silgranit sink and Artona faucets. The floors throughout have been updated with pre-finished 7" wide plank Ash hardwood floors, adding an elegant unity to the home. The open living plan offers the homeowner a variety of ways to flex the space with the potential of easily creating a 4th bedroom or separate home office space. A powder room with separate laundry room is located just off the kitchen and dining area.
The master bedroom is situated in the western portion of the apartment and set apart from the additional bedrooms. The bedroom easily accommodates a king-sized bed and has a southern exposure with open courtyard views and features an ample 5'x5' walk-in closet and ceiling fan in addition to an en suite bathroom with deep-soaking tub and separate shower. The secondary and tertiary bedrooms occupy the eastern section of the apartment and are generously proportioned. The furthest bedroom has been custom-designed as an office using gray-cerused Italian hardwood and has views of the terrace. A second full bathroom is adjacent to the bedrooms and is marble tiled and has a bathtub.
The pièce de résistance of the residence is its enormous private terrace which measures 46'6" x 10'3" and provides seamless indoor/outdoor living. A perfect area for lounging, gardening, or dining al fresco, it offers serenity and the ultimate city refuge. The home lends itself to entertaining and spacious living. Additional features of the unit include updated electrical wiring with dimmer switches and USB outlets, a brand new 24,000 BTU Ice Air HVAC system for the living room, Bosch Washer/Dryer, recessed and track lighting, and customized closets. A storage space (4x4) can be purchased with the unit but is not included with the sale.
