Wide open sky from every room! With mesmerizing views of the Hudson River to the West and the city skyline to the East and South, this rarely available 17th floor three bedroom, three bath home is flooded with natural light all day long. Recently renovated to capitalize on the light and to maximize space, this loft-like apartment has downtown flair. Walk in the door and you are immediately greeted with a beautiful sweeping expanse. The open kitchen is the heart of the home, with a wall of West facing windows, custom cabinets and a large center island made of Caesarstone that can seat four for informal dining. The appliances are top of the line, including a Sub-zero refrigerator, Wolf range, Viking microwave, and Miele dishwasher. A corner window table overlooking the river is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or take in the sunsets with a glass of wine. This area flows seamlessly to the open media room or to the perfectly proportioned and elegant 18' x 13' dining area. Strategically centered between the dining area and large, step-down living room, which itself has stunning views of midtown's skyscrapers, is a beautifully tiled wet bar with Sub-zero wine fridge. It gives onto a 12' x 15' gallery that can be used for a cocktail party or, with its custom built-in bookcases, as a library.All the bedrooms are situated so that they give separation and privacy. The East facing primary suite feels like a private retreat. One enters through a luxurious and brilliantly designed dressing room with a Thassos marble vanity complete with double sinks, two spacious walk-in California closets and custom floor-to-ceiling storage. An exquisitely renovated spa-like bathroom with Thassos marble walls, Thassos marble shower and ceramic floor is highlighted yet again by another extraordinary river view. The gracious primary bedroom is its own sanctuary and, measuring 11'8 x 17', has ample space for a king size bed and built-in desk. The room is naturally lit all day with views across the neighborhood's iconic rooftops and water towers.The secondary bedrooms flank the central gallery area as does a full bathroom that can also serve as a powder room. One bedroom is a very generous size at almost 11' x 19' and while the additional bedroom, which has an en-suite marble bath, is cozier at 7'5 x 14', its unobstructed river views are magical. Casement windows and beamed ceilings add character and distinction throughout the apartment. Each room has window air-conditioning and to complete the home there is a Miele washer/dryer. 565 West End is an Art-Deco building built in 1937 and one of the most sought-after pre-war cooperatives on the Upper West Side.
