The simplicity of mid-century modern appeal and classic pre-war architectural details are blended to perfection in this recently renovated and reimagined Lenox Hill prewar Classic 7. Open, unobstructed views and stunning southern light make this home a stand-out. With a wood-burning fireplace as its centerpiece, the palatial living room now serves as an open and lofty living and dining room. The expansive formal dining room is this home's den or office. French casement windows with antique brass hardware, high beamed coved ceilings, the original fireplace mantel with a bluestone hearth, glass doorknobs and brass hinges add character and charm to the timeless tranquility of the design. The high-end, eat-in chef's kitchen is simply divine with its window seat, travertine café table, classic shaker cabinets, sleek white Corian counters, double farm sink and built-in display cases. A laundry area includes a full sized Electrolux washer and steam dryer. A gallery hallway leads to the private quarters which include 3 serene bedrooms. The sun-filled master bedroom features an en-suite windowed bath with vintage cast iron soaking tub, a high end brass rain shower system and custom vanity. The guest bedroom has 2 closets. A second full windowed bath has a walk-in frameless glass shower and modern vanity. The third bedroom has been repurposed as a media/reading room. The former staff room is now a fabulously cozy guest room with an en-suite rain shower bath.
Bespoke elegance prevails in the versatility and functionality of this stylish home. New electronic solar shades, custom radiator covers, brass heating vents - no detail has been overlooked. 116 East 63rd Street is a 33 unit, circa 1913 full-service cooperative with a roof deck, bike and basement storage, and additional laundry room. Pets welcome. Convenient to new Q line, Equinox Fitness, high end retail shopping and fine dining. 50% financing allowed. This welcoming prewar residence is a fabulous find.
