About the Property
This stunning 7 room prewar residence is in one of Carnegie Hill’s most regal cooperatives, featuring magnificent arched Gothic-styled entrances designed in 1929 by Schwartz & Gross thus providing six separate lobbies off a resplendent private garden courtyard which also serves as a driveway to load your car on the way to the country. Each lobby serves only two apartments per floor for tranquil and private living.
Following suit, this extraordinarily large 2,900 foot home has a thoughtful layout designed for everyday living and entertaining with the bedroom wing facing the southern sun filled planted courtyard garden and it’s generous public rooms – living room, dining room, eat in kitchen, and staff room facing the northern tree lined street.
The grand 27X16 living room has a wood burning fireplace flanked by elegant custom built backlit showcases to house your art treasures and books. Two double sized windows allow for plentiful light. The apartments 10 foot beamed ceilings and inherent charm enhance the dramatic space. Beautifully designed pocket doors are your entry to the equally grand 23X14 dining room which can easily seat 14 for dinner -or perhaps be used as a combination den/dining or library. The windowed eat in kitchen is quite sizable and abuts a full sized staff room with bath and washer/dryer that can serve as a 4th bedroom or office.
Entranced off the lovely round entry gallery are three very privately placed bedrooms, the master being an exceptionally large 14X23 with massive walk in closets and a windowed master bath. The second bedroom, a sizable 12X19, houses two enormous closets and has access to a full bathroom right at its entrance that also serves as a powder room. The third bedroom (currently designed as a library/den) is 13X23 with two large closets and its own private windowed bath. All the bedrooms enjoy tremendous southern sun as well as the peaceful greenery of the courtyard garden.
The stunning herringbone hardwood floors and deluxe custom millwork throughout this home are truly a sight to behold. Many other closets and storage areas abound!
