Ultra rare opportunity to GUT RENOVATE this approximately 3600 sq foot duplex at one of New York's most renowned post war cooperatives, The Sovereign.
Combining two half floor apartments, enjoy unobstructed skyline views on both levels. The south and west exposures capture the iconic Chrysler and Empire State Building, the majestic new Freedom Tower, the entire width of the East River and a clear view of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in the distance.
The duplex is currently laid out with one extra wide living room, kitchen with laundry, one bedroom with en-suite bath, and half bath for guests on the 43rd floor. The stairs lead to the 42nd floor where there is a spacious master bedroom with windowed bathroom and two other ample bedrooms with full baths. There are numerous possibilities in reshaping this palatial home.
The Sovereign was designed by Emery Roth and Sons, who also created other famed buildings - The Beresford and The San Remo. The elegant and impressive lobby has soaring ceilings accented by the sparkle of hand blown 1950's Venini chandeliers, designed by the Italian Architect Carlo Scarpa. There is a renovated gym and white glove, luxury service from a well trained staff of doormen, porters and mechanics. The 24 hour garage with valet service gives you the extraordinary convenience to drop your car off right at the front entrance. Extra storage available for an extra fee, space permitting.
Sutton Place is a sanctuary away from the bustle of the city. Its quiet and serene streets are lined with trees and small, intimate restaurants. You are moments from the East River Promenade, a Whole Foods on 57th Street, renowned schools, and the main shopping centers at Lexington Avenue.
