Situated on Fifth Avenue's prestigious Museum Mile, this oversized two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom co-op home offers pin-drop quiet, expansive living spaces and modern designer touches throughout.
The modernist style of Mies van der Rohe, an innovator in the 1920s and 1930s, was an inspiration in this fine Carnegie Hill home's recent reimagining which carefully aligns minimalist design within prewar bones. Restored herringbone floors, abundant millwork and a decorative fireplace convey Fifth Avenue refinement, while high ceilings and large windows facing north, east and west add an airy elegance.
Arrive at the approximately 1,650-square-foot residence via a gracious foyer and 17-foot-long entry gallery. Ahead, custom floor-to-ceiling double doors unveil a 40-foot-wide great room that’s perfect for entertaining. The convertible space could also include a library/third bedroom with en suite bathroom without sacrificing grandeur (see proposed floor plan). The ultra-modern windowed kitchen includes limestone floors, Venetian plaster walls and ample Anigre cabinetry surrounding state-of-the-art appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero, including a gas cooktop, double ovens, dishwasher, built-in coffee system and wine cooler.
The large master suite features handsome birdseye maple built-ins and custom closets, and the en suite Boffi master bath boasts slate floors, a hand-carved sink and a soaking tub with steam shower. This bath is connected to the hallway powder room by a clever concealed door creating an oversized space with plenty of room for morning routines. The spacious second bedroom next door includes a large window and a full wall of custom closets. Set at the quiet rear of the building, this refined home features dual-zone central air conditioning, custom lighting, in-unit washer-dryer and integrated audio, making it a serene and comfortable retreat. Two large storage bins are conveyed with the sale.
