Spacious 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath duplex home with dramatic sky lit atrium, high ceilings and two private outdoor spaces. Located in a boutique coop with only 4 units, a keyed elevator takes you to this apartment on the top floors. The grand scale living room features a 13 foot high barrel vaulted ceiling with sunny southern and western exposures onto East End Avenue through floor to ceiling windows, and a wood burning fireplace with well-designed storage for firewood under the limestone hearth. Also on the entrance level is marble powder room for guests and a large coat closet.
A few steps down lead you to a spacious dining room with an adjacent glass enclosed balcony facing east- the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The large windowed eat-in kitchen is a chef's dream, with east and north corner exposures, and ample counter and storage space, including a large pantry closet. It features stainless steel appliances, including a Subzero refrigerator, two dishwashers, double wall ovens and a cooktop which vents to the outside. There is also a conveniently located built-in desk area with storage.
From the foyer, a short flight of stairs takes you up to a huge private roof deck, great for entertaining and star gazing.
The bedrooms are all located on the lower level, in different directions off the central gallery for added privacy. The primary bedroom gets sunny eastern light and has a large en-suite bath with bathtub. Two bedrooms face west and share an updated hall bath with bathtub. The 4th bedroom with renovated en-suite bath with shower, currently used as an office with built-in desk and storage, would make a great guest suite. Next to this room is an enclosed laundry area with full sized washer and vented dryer. Tucked cleverly under the staircase, is a well-designed craft area.
The apartment features newly updated two zone central AC, maple floors, generous closet space, track lighting and a sprinkler system. Located near the East River Promenade and Carl Schurz Park, and convenient to restaurants, shopping, the Q train and crosstown buses.
