Apartment 15D at 19 East 88th Street offers the perfect combination of grand and gracious indoor and outdoor living, iconic, breathtaking views, brilliant natural light, ideal proportions and room flow, and even a working fireplace and central air-conditioning, all housed within one of the most revered pre-war co-ops in prime Carnegie Hill. This is in fact one of only a handful of apartments in New York that clears perfectly centered landmark views over the Guggenheim Museum and directly into the Park and Reservoir; an uncanny combination of world-renowned architectural and natural beauty.
A proper entry foyer greets you on your arrival to this truly magical apartment. Directly ahead is a charming reception room, home study, or even a guest suite, with a full window wall looking south over your private terrace and the city beyond. To the west is one of the most appealing living rooms you will ever experience. A wide, deep corner room with two walls of oversized, single-paned windows with open south and west views of the private terraces, open sky, notable landmarks, the Guggenheim, and of course the Park and Reservoir. A working, wood-burning fireplace anchors this beautiful room, which is large enough to accommodate a number of seating and entertaining options.
A glass French door leads to an 11 by 15 foot formal dining, all glass atrium, heated and cooled for year-round enjoyment, and the ideal spot to dine under the stars, falling rain or snow, and the perfect perch to revel one of the most awe-inspiring views of the city.
Adjacent to the living room is the corner Park-facing library or second bedroom- with two large solid-pane windows overlooking the private north-west planting terrace. A full guest bathroom and numerous closets complete the western portion of this home.
To the east of the study is an impeccably designed, windowed kitchen maximizing every inch of space with maple cabinets and stone counters, and stainless steel appliances. Two steps up lead you to the private south facing terrace- a wonderful treat off of a kitchen- and a very cheerful spot to design and prepare home cooked meals.
The corner master suite is blissfully private, surrounded by your private terrace- truly a retreat from the city beyond. With ample room for large scale furnishings, featuring an inviting Park view seating area, three closets, and a luxurious, windowed en-suite bathroom, brilliant sunlight, peace and quiet.
Rarely do terraces complement interior rooms as they do in this singular home. Running over 70 linear feet long, and 11 feet deep, with room to garden, lounge, dine, entertain, you will experience being away on vacation- at home- without ever leaving the city- every time you step outside. Mature specimen plantings meticulously cared for over many years, a professionally installed irrigation system and stone pavers define this remarkable setting- all of course overlooking some of the most thrilling views in New York.
