This expansive and extraordinary two-bedroom comes to market for the first time in 50 years in glorious new form! This is a very rare opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind sanctuary located in the historic and mystique-infused Whitby where such notable 20th Century icons as Doris Day, George Burns and Al Capone spent their days and nights. The quiet, Southern-exposed, 5th floor home, part of the largest two-bedroom line in the building, has undergone a complete high-end and contemporary gut renovation but retains classic, 1920's detail, including thick beamed ceilings, crown moldings and original oak floors lovingly refinished to a dark and elegant sheen.

A long, dramatic entry hallway with a huge walk-in closet unexpectedly leads to a wide foyer, perfect for an efficient home office or library. This opens into the endless, 20' wide living room with high beamed ceilings enhanced by oversized windows with Eastern exposures and another enormous walk-in closet that can easily be opened up to create even more space for a variety of uses.

The windowed kitchen has been re-imagined as a chef's delight and graciously looks out on the living room for myriad entertaining options. No expense was spared in its renovation which features top-of-the-line appliances, including a Bertazzoni stove, Haier refrigerator and Bosch microwave. A large, granite-topped island with brushed nickel pendant lighting, porcelain tile floor, wood cabinetry and a glass tile back-splash complete the transformation. The ample bathroom is also windowed and features a marble pedestal sink, porcelain wall and floor subway tile and a re-glazed vintage bathtub has been outfitted with a pampering rain-forest shower-head.

The sprawling unit's floor plan also reveals a hallway leading away from the living space and toward two large, split bedrooms. One has dual Southern and Eastern exposures and an immense walk-in closet, while the other is Southern exposed and bathed in light offering city views. Both bedrooms also feature built-in, flat screen TV wall outlets.

Plumbing and electrical systems have been updated.

The Whitby, recently profiled in the New York Times, was designed by the esteemed architect Emery Roth (The San Remo, The Beresford) and completed in 1923. This 217-unit, noble structure, renowned for its impressive three sturdy bays and rippling brick cornice, is located on West 45th Street between 8th and 9th Aves in the heart of NYC's fabled theatre district.

The Whitby is a full-service co-op and features one of the most spectacular, furnished roof-decks in Midtown West with 360 degree, open city views. Amenities include a 24/7 doorman, new laundry room, storage, bike room, FIOS and a lobby now undergoing a grand renovation to echo its glamorous, pre-War history. It is convenient to all major transportation and an abundance of restaurants, cafes and entertainment.

The Whitby is pied-a-terre, co-purchasing and pet-friendly.
