Apartment 2F is a gem of design in excellent condition. The entrance gallery leads to a spacious living room that features a wood-burning fireplace. A generously sized bedroom and bathroom extend from one end of the living room while an intimate dining room is at the opposite end and connects to the large, well-furnished kitchen. These rooms are filled with light entering through South-facing windows and overlook a lovely English garden that is available solely to Southgate residents for quiet enjoyment. Four large closets are the envy of any city dweller.
The South gate buildings are highly sought-after pre-War residences designed by Emery Roth and sturdily built by Bing & Bing. They are located in the quiet 52nd Street and 51st Street cul-de-sacs overlooking the East River. Southgate enjoys the services and security provided by a live-in superintendent and 24-hour door staff... There is a bike room and storage is available. Southgate also is pet-friendly. Electricity is included in the monthly maintenance. Pieds-a-terre and guarantors are permitted.
The Southgate-Sutton Place-Beekman neighborhood is located in what in Colonial days was called Mount Pleasant and still enjoys pleasant and refreshing breezes from the East River. Dotting the neighborhood are many delightful restaurants, shops of all sorts, grocery stores, and a famed weekly farmers market. Public and private transportation routes run easily up and down local avenues and cross-town into the Mid-town business district and cultural districts beyond.
