Did someone say, "Tree top views!"? Dramatic 11 foot ceiling heights, and expansive north and west facing floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows, provide serene panoramic views of lush greenery and an abundance of natural light. Gazing outside and tracking the seasonal changes of nature's color palette never gets old. And when the leaves are down, you'll be mesmerized by views of the Hudson River. Watching the street life below is like watching tv on mute - total silence.
As in any well-appointed and exquisite home, there is a large and gracious entry hall leading to the spacious and grand loft-like living and dining area adjacent to the open concept kitchen -- perfect for entertaining large parties (or people who just think big).
The custom designed chef's kitchen features bamboo cabinetry, river-washed black granite countertops, gorgeous glass tile backsplash, custom paneled Sub Zero fridge and Asko dishwasher, and a stainless steel Wolf dual convection oven and gas cooktop with a sleek venting range hood. The large island with additional seating and under counter ambient lighting completes this culinary paradise.
A split bedroom layout is ideal for privacy. The primary bedroom suite is large enough to accommodate a king-sized bed with an ensuite spa-like limestone and glass mosaic bathroom including a deep soaking jacuzzi tub and a separate glass enclosed shower.
The additional bedroom, also large enough for a queen or king-sized bed, is perfect as a guest bedroom or home office and is conveniently located next to the elegant second full bath. There are ample closets, wide plank oak flooring and recessed lighting throughout, as well as a WASHER and DRYER in the home, motorized window treatments, and a two-zoned central heating and cooling system.
