During the complete renovation of this pre-war Classic 5, the architect ingeniously reimagined the original 2/3-bedroom layout to create a master bedroom with windowed walk-in closet/dressing room, additional storage areas and an eat-in kitchen. The original pre-war features of high beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, cedar closet and plaster moldings are enhanced with thermostat-controlled heating/cooling, CATV wiring, custom built-in woodwork and cabinetry, glazed walls and an antique fireplace surround. Both windowed marble bathrooms feature Hansgrohe fixtures, Robern medicine cabinets and custom lighting. The windowed chefs kitchen is brilliantly designed - not only is there an eating area and abundant storage, but also space for the LG washer/dryer. The custom wood cabinetry, granite countertops, glass backsplash and graphite porcelain floor compliment the integrated high-end appliances. The study/bedroom has a complete wall of built-in storage configured with two desk areas however, it can easily be used as a library/guest room or formal dining room. With its southern exposure, the apartment is light-filled throughout the day.
Built in 1927, 419 East 57th Street is a full-service, pre-war cooperative with 24-hour doorman, live-in superintendent, storage area, bike room, recently updated central laundry room and newly refurbished and extended planted roof deck. Pets and pied-a-terres are permitted.
