Welcome to this rarely available one bedroom/convertible 2 with 1.5 baths in an iconic Rosario Candela building on the Gold Coast of lower Fifth Avenue.
This charming space invites you to make yourself at home from the moment you enter the elegant and beautifully-proportioned front hallway. Three large windows, facing east and south, stream endless light into the open kitchen and living room, one with a window seat for you to look out on the neighboring garden and the backyards of historic townhouses while you have your first coffee of the day or turn the pages of a favorite book. Lovely hardwood floors, beautiful doors and window frames stripped to natural wood, all provide a sense of warmth, and the closets are large and deep throughout. The renovated, windowed cook's kitchen features a Miele stove and Grohl sink fixtures, a counter where you can take your meals or talk to whoever's cooking, and floor to ceiling dramatic dark blue glass cabinetry. A half bath off the kitchen is convenient for guests, and could also be used to install a washer/dryer. The larger bedroom faces west and has a huge built-in wall of storage; the smaller bedroom could also be used easily as a home office. Last but certainly not least is the oversized black and white tiled master bathroom with stylish fixtures and an oversized tub you will want to soak in for hours.
All this amid one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city, and just a stone's throw from Washington Square Park, shopping and restaurants on 8th Street and University Place, convenient to NYU, Union Square, and subways in all directions. The staff is full time, including a live-in super, and the newly renovated lobby graceful and welcoming. There is also a gorgeous, expertly-planted roof deck; a laundry room; and pets and pieds-a-terre are both permitted.
