Located on the second floor of Charlotte, the Garden Residence enjoys wonderful south and west sunlight and greenery out every window. Envisioned as private and tranquil outdoor space, the 1,488 sf courtyard terrace is accessible through four sets of triple-layered glass doors with Guardian UltraClearTM glazing. A private elevator entry and gallery lead into the Great Room of this special residence, which faces low, beautifully detailed buildings and mature trees that line this section of Columbus Avenue. Three of the four bedrooms open onto the Garden Terrace and are serene, sheltered, happy and bright. There is also access to the garden terrace from the foyer, making it wonderful for entertaining too. This garden retreat is truly a private oasis in the heart of a charming and active neighborhood.
Charlotte of the Upper West Side, a Passive House Institute Certified Building, is a new boutique development said to be NYC’s most sustainable condominium. The structure’s airtight technology creates a nearly silent living space while keeping temperatures constant and comfortable throughout the year and saving more than 90% on heating and cooling bills. The multi-million dollar ERV system (energy recovery ventilation) delivers fresh, filtered, UV-treated air into each home, eliminating allergens and toxins in the air to provide unmatched air quality. The striking facade of iron spotted terracotta louvers are designed to bring in sunlight during the winter and keep out the heat during the summer.
The Great Room features high ceilings and an art wall with gallery-quality lighting. The operable floor-to-ceiling windows with acoustical lamination and wide planks of European white oak set in a ladder pattern, add charm and warmth. Pre-wired soffits for motorized blinds and an integrated Lutron RA2 system with smart home connectivity add to the level of detail.
The meticulously designed Henrybuilt kitchen is utilitarian and sophisticated. This silver-oak cabinetry and warm aluminum accented kitchen is equipped with storage, a coffee bar, appliance garage and a pantry. The Subzero refrigerator and freezer, Wolf range, Miele steam oven, 2 dishwashers, U-line wine storage, and 1,200 CFM range hoods with temperature controlled air are all seamlessly integrated. Flush rounded corners and fluted wood millwork, fitted with a thick seamless slab of Vermont Olympian White Danby, mark the kitchen island as fine furniture. Matching counter and backsplash slabs along with floating oak shelves complete the tailored look.
