Welcome to Apartment 4D, a complete renovation of a prewar classic six that combines generous scale, classic style, and high-end updates to create a lovely, livable home.
The 1600 sf floor plan is both gracious and accommodating. A vestibule and foyer open to a 24-foot-long living room with a wall of built-ins, beamed ceiling, and working brick fireplace. There are two possible master suites, each with private baths as well as a study that could serve as a guest room and a third full bath. The separate dining room is equally well-suited to entertaining, group dinners, or homework. A windowed eat-in kitchen features custom Bilotta cabinetry and a vented Ilve range, and theres also a butlers pantry with glass-fronted cabinets, second sink, and dual-zone wine fridge.
Prewar charm and rock-solid construction are enhanced by carefully integrated improvements for the best of old and new: big rooms, high ceilings, ample storage, new windows, through-wall air conditioning, and vented washer/dryer. High-quality fittings and finishes include Waterworks and Dornbracht bath fixtures, Miele appliances, basketweave Carrara marble tile, solid brass door and drawer hardware, Farrow & Ball paint in tasteful neutrals, and original hardwood floors refinished in satin walnut.
All this in a boutique full-service condominium with doorman and attended elevator. Only four apartments per floor.
Situated in a residential enclave thats convenient to midtown yet surprisingly unhurried, with broad sidewalks and river views. Steps from Whole Foods, Bloomingdales, Sutton Place Park, and the Sutton East tennis bubble.
Turnkey condition. A rare find. www.perfectprewarhome.com
