Situated on a high floor of a full-service prewar co-op in prime Lenox Hill, this sun-flooded residence boasts open city views throughout. Originally a Classic 8, this apartment has been thoughtfully and impeccably renovated into a four-bedroom home with an optimal layout, using the highest level of finishes throughout. With central air and modern conveniences like a large mud room and laundry area, this home is truly move-in ready.
The welcoming foyer, adjacent to a large mud room, leads to a bright and spacious living room accented by a wood burning fireplace. Open to the living room is an immense windowed chef's kitchen that is exquisitely designed, featuring an eat-in breakfast bar, Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, Wolf range, Asko dishwasher, marble countertops and custom cabinetry. Adjacent is a large dining room and library/media room, both with custom built-ins, and a large, well-placed powder room with washer/dryer hidden behind custom cabinetry. This suite of expansive living and entertaining space is perfectly separate from the sleeping quarters.
The private living space, accessed off of a bedroom hallway, has four bedrooms that all enjoy an abundance of light and open views as well as ample closet space. The gracious primary bedroom has two oversized windows as well as two generous custom closets. There is a spacious en suite bathroom with a double vanity. The remaining three bedrooms are well proportioned, sharing two beautifully renovated bathrooms - one en suite and the other between the remaining two bedrooms.
