Prewar elegance and grand proportions define this sprawling three-bedroom, three-bathroom Classic 7 residence in a white-glove Sutton Place cooperative.
Spanning a decadent 2,200 square feet, this refined home begins with a long gallery foyer that nods to the sophistication found throughout. Soaring beamed ceilings rise overhead, handsome herringbone hardwood floors run underfoot, and multiple closets effortlessly attend to storage needs. The oversized living room invites you to relax in front of the warm wood-burning fireplace while French doors reveal a bedroom currently used as a study. Pocket doors open to a lavish formal dining room, and the extra-large eat-in kitchen boasts abundant cabinet space, a breakfast bar and upscale stainless steel appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas range, double wall ovens and a dishwasher.
Head to the corner owner's suite to find northern and eastern exposures, two walk-in California closets and an en suite marble bathroom with a relaxing jetted tub/shower. A third bedroom shares a smart Jack-and-Jill bath with the study, and a flex room is currently used as a bedroom suite with a private bath.
This expansive, adaptable floor plan could easily revert to its original Classic 7 layout, with a sprawling dining room and staff room, if desired (see alternate floor plan). Handsome built-in cabinetry, through-the-wall air conditioners and a large laundry room with a side-by-side washer-dryer add effortless ease to this graceful residence.
