Fully Renovated, Pre-War, Half Floor Showstopper

A Brand New Home in a Classic, Museum Park Block Building

Room For All Of Your Growing Needs

When a designer melds form and function perfectly, a harmony exists. When a home melds good flow and gracious scale, a balance exists. When you meet this winsome residence and your heart melts, your home will exist.

Mindfully renovated, with a designer's eye and a clever, practical heart, this substantially scaled, pristinely detailed, high-ceilinged, big-windowed, quiet, cheerful, pre-war dream space has it all:

-A large and elegant living room with fireplace ? a comfortable space ideal for entertaining.

-A windowed, designer kitchen with marble counters, top-shelf appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero, five star fixtures, filtered water service, and handsome custom cabinetry ? served perfectly by a fully outfitted, step-in pantry.

-An elegant dining room off of the cook?s kitchen and by the gracious foyer and custom bar space.

-Three king-sized bedrooms ?a large master and two corner bedrooms with dual exposures (cross breezes anyone?). Bedroom three is currently configured as a big, bonus media room and office. All three bedrooms have supreme closet space ? the magnificent master offering a fully outfitted, designer walk-in closet (readily converted to a third bathroom).

-Two gorgeous, custom, designer, windowed marble baths with top-end fixtures. One has a spa like walk-in shower and the other a cast iron bathtub.

-A smart home with integrated lighting and sound systems throughout.

If space is your goal, and a prime park-side location ? close to every area shopping, dining, fitness, and cultural destination ? is a must (not to mention a plethora of easy transportation options), then this stand-out residence will certainly impress and inspire you. Perfectly perched in its well-served, pet-friendly, pre-war building with new lobby and halls in the works, this Upper Westside beauty is a rare residential opportunity indeed.

Welcome home.
