Move right into this beautiful and bright residence in the heart of the Upper East Side. Apartment 5A combines elegance and comfort in a classic six-room 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home. Please note this impressive residence can also be purchased with all new designer furnishings, including period antique pieces, for $2.3M.
You will be captivated by a welcoming feeling the moment you step out of the elevator into the 5th floor hallway, which was tastefully redesigned last year. Upon entering the welcoming gallery, one's gaze is immediately drawn into the home's centerpiece, a gracious and warm living room. The living room and adjacent library - the home's entertaining centerpieces - both overlook the green treetops of Third Avenue facing east. The library, originally one of the home's bedrooms, offers sophisticated built-in shelving, two closets and its own full bathroom. Handsome sliding wooden pocket doors allow for separation of the two rooms, affording maximum privacy and the convenience of converting the library into another bedroom, if desired.
The primary bedroom suite, off the entrance gallery, is flooded with light and very spacious, with three closets (one a deluxe walk-in), and an ensuite renovated marble bathroom. Sunny and inviting, the primary bedroom enjoys a relaxing view of townhouse gardens to the west.
The enormous windowed gourmet kitchen, also with a western exposure, includes an oversized island with two built-in wine refrigerators, granite countertops, two ovens and abundant cabinetry and storage, all guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning of chefs. An entertainer's dream, the kitchen boasts a substantial dining area that is perfect for both intimate and large social gatherings.
This home's layout is completed by a third bedroom (or home office, if preferred) and a bathroom currently housing a washer/dryer. With the original water connection and plumbing in place, the full bathroom can easily be restored, if needed, and the washer dryer can be moved to the kitchen where there is ample room to accommodate separate machines.
