Be the first to live in this newly renovated Classic Six-to-Five room apartment in one of the Upper East Side's finest buildings. Once to the seventh floor you step off to a newly done, elegant black and white marbled vestibule shared with only one apartment. Inside you are greeted by a large foyer which leads into a perfectly balanced double windowed living room with a wood burning fireplace as its focal point. The fireplace has been dressed in a new Nero Marquina marble surround and hearth and a new mantel appropriate to the period. The room is illuminated thru top of the line, divided light all wood windows by Marvin. New millwork, including picture moldings and baseboards, provides crisp clean lines true to the original form.
Opposite the fireplace wall a large double opening leads into a windowed dining room creating a lovely flow between the two rooms. Both the living and dining room feature numerous ceiling spot lights that can pivot down to just the right angle to illuminate art or simply beautifully dimmed in the evening for just the right touch.
Across the main hall from the dining room you enter the kitchen thru a butler's pantry with cupboards and counters on either side. Set apart from the kitchen, in both style and finish, you find dark wood base cabinets and enameled upper cabinets complemented by earth tone St. Laurent marble counters. Fine details like walnut lined drawers offer an elegant touch. A partial re-design of the apartment eliminated a maid's room to dramatically increase the size of the kitchen. The large kitchen with three windows and endless counter space features off white Bilotta custom cabinets, a Miele dual fuel range, Miele dishwasher and 30" Subzero refrigerator. Calacatta marble counters and a commodious farmhouse style sink complete the picture. Just off the kitchen you have a laundry room with a Bosch washer and dryer.
The re-design also allowed for a new wall of closets to line the main hall to the bedrooms. The triple windowed master bedroom has an en-suite Statuario marble trimmed bath featuring Rohl fixtures. An enormous walk-in closet completes the suite. There is a corner second bedroom and a second marble-trimmed bath. All new plumbing and electrical can be found throughout the apartment. 53 East 66th is a full-service doorman building in one of the most sought after parts of the Upper East Side just steps from the shops of Madison Avenue, a short walk to Central Park and easy access to the West Side. The building permits pied-a-terre and welcomes pests. Showings to begin Monday 3/2/21.
