One of a kind Magnificent 4BR Home

SPRAWLING FOUR BEDROOM HOME WITH HUGE TERRACE Upon entering the apartment, you are greeted by an elegant impressive entrance hall. The apartment faces East and West with a grand living and entertaining area offering views of the 1500sf private terrace, perfect for gardening, hosting, and dining. The layout of this home is beautiful and functional. There is a formal dining room (which could convert to a 5th bedroom),with two additional bedrooms on one wing and two bedrooms on the other. All bedrooms are very large and have easy access to the 3.5 baths. The master suite has a dressing room that is large enough to be an office or nursery. Two baths are in-suite (the master and another bedroom), and the other baths are right outside the other bedrooms. In addition, the half bath can easily be restored to a full bath if so desired. There is a large eat-in kitchen with top appliances and two dishwashers. The kitchen table sets comfortably in its own area and is perfectly placed so you can see the landscaped terrace. The apartment features dental moldings, recessed lighting, a marble floor entryway, and new hardwood floors. The bathrooms are all done in fine materials, and one includes a Jacuzzi. The kitchen from one of the apartments was made into a laundry room with full Washer/Dryer and lots of storage. The closet and storage space throughout the unit is amazing. There is surround sound in one bedroom (the library), and a self-watering system set upon a timer on the terrace. It is hard to put in writing how special this apartment is. It feels like a house in regard to layout, size, outdoor space, storage, etc. but has the benefit of building services including a full-time doorman, live-in resident manager, beautiful roof-deck and plans for other amenities in the future, such as a gym. The building has impeccable financials, generated by high retail income space. The low maintenance includes all utilities! It was built as a co-op in 1961, and offers few apartments per floor, and gracious, spacious layouts. It is conveniently located near public transportation, a taxi line to downtown Manhattan, the new Second Avenue Subway, public and private schools, beautiful parks, great restaurants, markets, shopping, a public library, and a post office.
