Property Description

With its elegant simplicity and timeless aesthetic, the allure of this oversized one bedroom, one and a half bathroom cooperative is the spacious 19" living room with 4 large windows providing abundant natural light, sleek entrance foyer with 3 closets, and eat-in kitchen with multi-exposures. During the recent renovation, a windowed powder room was created, the Oak floors refinished silver grey, and all closets completely outfitted. The functional kitchen was updated with new appliances: full-size washer/dryer, stainless steel dishwasher, stove, microwave and refrigerator. The quartzite counter is the perfect complement for the glass tile backsplash. The primary bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. With a clean, classic modern style, this streamlined prewar home has the ability to simultaneously take us back to the past (high beamed ceilings with plaster moldings, wood burning fireplace, and custom built-ins) while also propelling us to dream of the future. The perfect setting to relax and enjoy an "Old Fashioned" cocktail.

Built in 1927, this established full-service, prewar cooperative is located on one of the ten prettiest blocks in Manhattan. The numerous amenities include a 24-hour doorman, live-in resident manager, storage area, bike room, central laundry room, gym, and recently expanded and planted roof deck. The building is pet friendly and allows pied-a-terre ownership. The 2% flip tax is paid by buyer.

One Bed in Sutton Place


Sutton Place | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Sutton Place is usually described with favorable words like charming, cozy, great neighborhood, hidden gem, sanctuary, or even small village inside a big city. Those descriptions aren’t from real estate folks either, they’re from the people that live and work there, so it must be true.

The quiet and upscale neighborhood is more like an enclave. It’s bounded by East 53rd Street to the south, East 59th Street to the North, First Avenue to the west, and the East River to the east. Most residents will tell you that everything you’ll ever need is located in the neighborhood. When it’s time to venture out into the cityscape, Sutton Place is within easy reach to Midtown and cultural attractions like the Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, Central Park and other iconic sites.   

Manhattan has always had notable celebrity residents. But for unknown reasons, Sutton Place has had more than its share of superstars over the years. Some of the more iconic celebs include: Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, Freddie Mercury, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Crawford, Michael Jackson and sister Latoya (Just for one summer).

Sutton Place is named after Effingham B. Sutton, a shipping merchant and entrepreneur. After hitting it big in the California gold rush, Sutton built brownstones along East 57th and East 58th streets with aspirations of making the section more residential. Poverty and crime dashed his dreams. The street gangs that hung out along the dead-ends and cul-de-sacs added to the neighborhood’s decay. Sutton was about to give up on his development endeavors but the Vanderbilt’s and the Morgan’s showed up in the 1920s and transformed the neighborhood. It soon became a wealthy enclave.
