THREE BEDROOMS INTO TWO - LOFTED LIVING / DINING / CHEF's KITCHEN / BONUS PLAY SPACE
It started with a vision. It progressed for about a year. Months of time-consuming detail was pondered, belabored, thoughtfully chosen, and masterfully executed. After many weeks of seeking approvals from the friendly Board of Directors (and the cumbersome Department of Buildings) -- and after months of writing checks to fund a robust construction site -- the sweet result is ready for you. The all-encompassing work is done. Without doing any of the heavy lifting, you get to enjoy the magnificent, beautiful result: Welcome to space - welcome to location - welcome to stunning.
Before you unfolds a stylish and practical, heart-warming, corner Pre-war residence that was gutted to the slab and custom rebuilt to accommodate a big 21st Century life. In this beautiful, prized corner home -- which has only one neighboring wall (in the foyer) -- a flexible lifestyle is easily accomplished: Working from home, schooling from home, exercising from home, and creating beautiful meals and a comfortable, stretch-out life is all perfectly possible. Right by Riverside Park, close to the area's best shopping, dining, and cultural destinations, and a stone's throw from a plethora of easy transportation options, this is the feel-good treasure that stands out for all the best reasons.
-The classic and gracious foyer/gallery (with two big closets) is an elegant approach to the mindfully created home before you.
-The big, bright living/dining room an expansive, well-planned space with high beamed ceilings, recessed lighting (atypical in Pre-wars), and three bright windows is large, comfortable, and flexible. Easy living and entertaining are beautifully achieved in this grand space.
-The large, flexible, eat-in cook's dream kitchen is the central heart of this home. With five-star Bosch appliances, abundant storage, custom cabinet and counter space, and a 7-ft wide dining island (with wine fridge), this culinary delight is both practical and gorgeous.
-This stunner is a three bedroom residence turned into a two bedroom home with bonus, open play space. (Please reference the alternate floor plan showing the original three bedroom plan.) The magnificent main bedroom is king-sized, offers two walls of large, outfitted closets, has room enough for an exercise area, and boasts a luxurious en-suite marble bath with dual sinks and a separate shower, soaking tub and radiant heating. The big corner guest bedroom has its own designer closet, and shares a full, dual-entry, marble bath with bedroom three (currently the open, bonus play space).
-A bit of extra has been created to accommodate a Zoom-room/office. There is a washer/dryer. ACs are through the wall. Radiators are all new and compact and encased in custom millwork. There are builtins and storage areas and smart closet systems throughout. The lighting is well planned, and this cheerful home has been fully re-plumbed and re-wired (200 amps!) and offers Cat-6 cable throughout.
-With a prime location that comes with bragging rights, this reinvented and revised classic is sweetly positioned in its well run, full service, Schwartz & Gross designed (circa 1924), pet-friendly, doorman, elevator building with live-in Super, and laundry, bike, and storage rooms.
(NOTE: Well-run building has a new roof, 2 new elevators, and the building will soon be taking ownership of its prized commercial space and all income from it.)
