This mint three bedroom renovation is of a quality rarely seen. Enter this sunny co-op in the heart of beautiful Carnegie Hill through a semi-private landing into a foyer embellished by an illuminated stained glass window. Adjacent is a 40-foot expanse of public rooms: the west-facing living room and library are bathed in light; the entire residence is pin drop quiet thanks to triple-paned windows. Ten foot ceilings make for a spectacular volume of space. Rift and quarter sawn light oak floors laid in a herringbone pattern complement the bespoke millwork throughout, including floor-to-ceiling French doors and pocket doors that lead from the living room to the library. A “hidden” integrated desk provides for a lovely area for remote work.

Down the hall, the primary bedroom suite has an enormous walk-in closet, and features a wall of closets carved in a Moroccan design which, when lit, casts a beautiful pattern of light throughout the bedroom. The primary bath is outfitted with macassar ebony and marble finishes. Two additional split bedrooms share a renovated bathroom.

The sun-flooded, east-facing corner dining room faces landscaped townhouse gardens and also functions as a place to watch television and as a home office, as there is a second “hidden” integrated desk. Wainscoted walls and exquisite light oak millwork are additional features. The windowed eat-in kitchen with center island has a SubZero fridge, Viking wine fridge, two Viking ovens, Viking vented cooktop, Miele dishwasher, Miele washer and dryer, ample china and pantry space and a built-in banquette.

There are too many architectural elements to detail. Additional complements include oak flooring throughout, custom lighting, custom-designed hardware, built-in shelving and fully outfitted closets. Electrical, plumbing and cable have all been upgraded.

One of the first luxury apartment buildings in Carnegie Hill, this Beaux Arts landmarked co-op was designed by Buchman and Fox at the turn of the 19th century. With its tiled mansard roof, rusticated two-story limestone base and grand entranceway, it is beautiful and distinctive, with just 14 apartments on seven floors. Located a stone's throw from the Central Park Reservoir and all this vibrant neighborhood has to offer – including excellent restaurants, food and clothing shopping, museums and many excellent schools. Pet-friendly, the helpful live-in Superintendent accepts packages. There is a laundry room, bike room and private storage. 2% flip tax by buyer. 50% financing permitted. LOW MAINTENANCE.
