A sophisticated modern oasis, this light-filled and impeccably renovated top-floor residence with high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace, is located in a charming, well-run boutique pre-war Co-op in the perfect Upper East Side location. Your new primary home or pied-à-terre is a true gem enjoying the rare combination of extreme quietness and ample light from oversized windows. Picturesque rooftop views of the charming tree-lined blocks of the Upper East Side Historic District, reminiscent of Paris. Enter through the gallery to the generously proportioned living/dining room with soaring ceilings, just shy of 11 feet, accented by a Ralph Lauren crystal chandelier, where the centerpiece is a beautiful wood burning fireplace with custom White Statuario Carrara Marble surround. The pre-war volume of the apartment is enhanced by custom details throughout; built-in hallway shoe storage, hidden storage mirror cabinets, and automated Lutron blackout shades. Rotary dimmable Forbes & Lomax light switches like little pieces of jewelry adorn the walls, Farrow & Ball Estate Emulsion, matching Restoration Hardware sconces, Baldwin hardware, and custom bleached hardwood oak floors throughout. In the windowed kitchen just off the living room white hand-painted kitchen cabinets contrast nicely with the jet-black granite countertops. In addition to the pullout faucet a second smaller faucet allows for on-demand filtered water. Compact yet fully functional. A Full-size SubZero refrigerator with double freezer drawers and icemaker, brand new dishwasher, Miele oven, sleek Miele cooktop and vent hood complete the kitchen. The king-size primary bedroom is pin drop quiet, benefitting from carefully renovated and specially sound insulated exterior walls and updated windows. A beautiful Phillip Jeffries silk accent wall behind the king size bed adds a warm and sophisticated glow. Two built in closets and enough space for a large double drawer chest. Elegant midnight blue with aged brass accents, the queen-sized second bedroom doubles as a screening room with a built-in home theater, integrated sound and a discreetly tucked away projector. Both bedrooms feature sleek, modern thermostat-controlled Runtal radiators, and discrete individual freestanding digital thermostat-controlled ducted DeLonghi AC units that can be put in the residence’s private storage during the winter. Overlooking the neighboring townhouses, the bedrooms enjoy views of iconic and historic Upper East Side architecture as well as the recent new developments on Billionaire’s Row. The sleek and exquisitely renovated bathroom offers luxurious upgrades including thermostat-controlled heated floors, a Tea-for-Two Kohler soaking tub, Dornbracht fittings, integrated Robern cabinets including nightlight and electrical outlet and sleek vanity lighting, and a Jeeves towel warmer.
