Perched on the 12th floor, this sun-filled and pin-drop quiet home offers prewar charm with beamed ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and beautiful oak floors throughout. The maintenance includes electricity, and a washer/dryer can be installed. All this on a tree-lined cul-de-sac in a stunning, full-service building designed by Emery Roth and developed by Bing & Bing.
The gracious foyer offers two extra-large closets and leads to the living room where you can enjoy treetop views and a wood-burning fireplace. The room is spacious and can accommodate a dining area or an office on either side of the fireplace. The windowed kitchen offers ample storage and a dining area. A wall can be erected to create a separate home office or guest bedroom if desired.
Both bedrooms offer en-suite bathrooms, impressive closet space, and are large enough to accommodate king-size beds as well as additional furniture. The primary bedroom gets light from both southern and western exposures, offers a windowed en-suite bathroom, and has two walk-in closets. The secondary bedroom faces south and is also generously sized.
Each room in this home is bright, well-proportioned, and offers excellent storage. The apartment is located on a quiet cul-de-sac block and there is a beautifully landscaped garden shared by the five Southgate buildings.
424 East 52nd Street is part of The Southgate complex. The cluster of buildings, which was originally designed by renowned architect Emery Roth and built by the Bing & Bing brothers, turned Beekman into the thriving residential enclave that it is today. The location provides a perfect blend of immediate access to all of the amenities of Midtown, with the privacy and tranquility of the nearby parks, dog runs, and the East River. Completed in 1931, the Southgate features a full-time doorman, live-in resident manager, onsite management office, landscaped garden with children's play area, laundry room, storage, and bicycle room.
Electricity is included in the maintenance, and pets and pied-a-terres are permitted.
