5C at 424 East 52nd Street is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom residence located at the end of a cul-de-sac providing ultimate peace and quiet. The gorgeous foyer, created by the purchase of hallway space, invites you into the spacious dining room with tons of custom storage and shelving. The home exudes charm with beamed ceilings, stunning oak floors, gorgeous crown moldings, baseboards, and chair rail moldings. Entering the windowed kitchen you will find stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, heaps of cabinet space, and an in-unit washer/dryer. The charm flows into the commodious living space, complete with a wood-burning fireplace and treetop views of the quiet street. Continuing down the hallway, you pass two out of the ten massive closets in this home that lead into the secondary bedroom. Currently configured as a nursery, this bedroom could also be a lovely home office or guest bedroom with the secondary windowed bathroom and hallway, that can be closed off from the rest of the home. Made even more ideal with a spacious walk-in closet and south-facing views of the Southgate Complex gardens. The primary bedroom easily accommodates a king bed and has a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. 424 East 52nd Street is part of The Southgate complex located in Manhattan's Beekman neighborhood. Four of the buildings are in a cul-de-sac on East 52nd Street and the other is located a block over, on East 51st Street. The cluster of buildings, which was originally designed by renowned architect Emery Roth and built by the Bing and Bing brothers, turned Beekman into the thriving residential enclave that it is today. The location provides a perfect blend of immediate access to all of the amenities of Midtown, with the privacy and tranquility of the nearby parks, dog runs and the East River. Completed in 1931, the Southgate features a full-time doorman, landscaped garden with play area, laundry room, storage, and bicycle room. Peid-a-terre and pets are allowed. Maintenance includes electricity.
