Located in a distinguished limestone building moments from Central Park, this stately and sophisticated eleven room residence in excellent condition features exquisite interior design by AD100 architect/designer Daniel Romualdez and is splendid in every way.
Accessed by private elevator landing, the formal Gallery opens to both the Living Room and Dining Room, and provides access to a convenient walk-in coat closet and a stylish Powder Room. The sunny and spacious step-down Living Room features a wood-burning fireplace and French doors opening to a charming Juliet balcony and views across East 72nd Street to the magnificent Henry Sloane mansion, later the Lycée Français. Adjacent, a handsome mahogany-paneled Library shares the Living Room’s attractive outlooks. The Dining Room is grand and impressive, perfect for formal entertainment. The enormous windowed chef’s Kitchen boasts a large island with a breakfast bar, a large pantry, state-of-the-art appliances, and black soapstone and white quartzite countertops. The Kitchen is supported by a Laundry Room and a very large Staff Bedroom and bath.
Exceptionally tranquil, private quarters incorporate four Bedrooms divided into two distinct areas, giving the Primary Bedroom assured privacy. The bright and gracious Primary Suite features a wood-burning fireplace, custom built-ins and a generous dressing area with very ample closets. Its ensuite marble bath has a deep soaking tub and separate shower. There are three additional generously-sized Bedrooms with windowed, renovated marble baths and very ample closets.
Throughout the residence, systems have been implemented to ensure utmost comfort, such as central and through-wall air conditioning and heat, and a Crestron sound system. These modern systems are complemented by pre-war detail, including very high ceilings, beautifully proportioned rooms, gorgeous herringbone hardwood floors, and stellar architectural details that are all part of the residence’s elegant appeal.
