DOUBLE CORNER HALF-FLOOR NEW CONSTRUCTION IN COVETED PRE-WAR FULL SERVICE BUILDING
OPEN TREETOP & ARCHITECTURAL VIEWS FROM EVERY WINDOW AND BRAND NEW RIVER-VIEW ROOF DECK
Two and a half years of ground-up construction and stellar design recently created one of the Upper West Side's more important residences. The epic endeavor resulted in an unparalleled, sprawling, park-block masterpiece with three open exposures (South, East, and West) whose every big room enjoys bright sunny windows. This residence is akin to a highest-end new development, yet in an historic, established address. It features all-new noise-canceling windows, new herringbone oak floors, custom-designed plaster moldings, three Marmoso fireplaces, marble mosaic baths with radiant flooring and Perrin & Rowe fixtures, 2-zone Nest-controlled central air, automated Lutron shades and lighting, a fully integrated Artison sound system, and Savant AV/Home automation.
The great room of this home is an impressive living/dining space spanning ~25 feet, beautifully lit by four new big windows with open treetop and architectural views. Like the rest of the residence, it is crowned by custom plaster work above and oak herringbone underfoot. Flanked on one side by one of three Marmoso hand-carved marble fireplaces, and on the other by an oversized chef's kitchen, this is a magnificent setting for stretching out and entertaining.
The windowed eat-in kitchen, which can be gracefully closed off by its custom metal-mullioned casement doors, offers Carrara marble counters, a large dining island, and top-shelf appliances by Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele. It is supplemented by a separate windowed pantry room, a space pre-set to act as second kitchen currently outfitted with laundry, supplemental storage, and a breakfast nook.
Off of the great room is a big corner library a bonus fifth bedroom with its own marble fireplace, signature hand-plastered ceiling, and hand-milled paneling and bookcases. Down the graceful residential corridor are the other four bedroom suites all comfortably scaled and bright with custom outfitted closets and big, sunny windows. The five bedrooms are handsomely served by five custom, en suite baths featuring hand-laid marble mosaics, radiant marble floors, and top-tier fixtures by Perrin & Rowe. The primary suite's bathroom offers dual sinks, a step-in shower, and a stand-alone claw-foot tub. One of the five bedrooms is a corner suite (currently a guest suite), offering a glimpse of the Hudson River and its own fireplace and built-in bar.
This treasured address is where Rachmaninoff lived and composed his most famous works, and Barbara Streisand filmed her 1996 comedy 'The Mirror Has Two Faces'. The building's amenities include a brand new river-view roof deck, stellar service of its wonderful staff, and storage/bike/laundry rooms. It has been described by The New York Times as 'A Calm Oasis Near the Buzz of Broadway' a deserving credit courtesy of its prime location. Every area cultural, shopping, and dining destination as well as Riverside and Central Park (and a plethora of easy transportation options) are at your doorstep.
