Property Description for 1 Sutton Place South, 7-C

THE RIVER IS EVERYWHERE

In the mist of a cosmopolitan city, walking home to One Sutton Place South is like walking home to the country. Each block is quieter than the last, until you arrive at a serene, elegant limestone cooperative built in 1927 by Henry Phipps, Jr. Upon entering, you are greeted by elegant green gardens followed by views of the incomparable East River.

UNIQUE BUILDING FEATURES
This building is positioned on the eastern side of Sutton Place South directly overlooking its own gardens and the riveting currents of the East River. It has a covered Porte-Cochere that makes entry to this building particularly private. There are three attendants who provide immediate assistance.

THE RENOVATION
Engaging the most talented artisans and designers, this 2 bedroom two-and-a-half bath residence has been skillfully restored and renovated by the owner to include features such as: new windows, electric, and plumbing; steam shower and jacuzzi in the master suite; working wood-burning fireplace in the living room; central air-conditioning with two air compressors and humidification system; audio and alarm system; restored original wood paneling and an unusually large private storage room in the basement measuring 7'8" x 12'2".

THE APARTMENT
There are 13 windows each with East River views. Just those windows facing east offer over 50 feet of East River views. There are 3 corner rooms that increase the light that spills into this apartment.

The first corner room, the living room, also has a wood-burning fireplace and faces both east and south. The master suite is the second major corner room, granting a panorama encompassing Morgan and Vanderbilt's townhouses on Sutton Place to the north and the 59th Street bridge to the east. The master suite begins with hallways replete with storage: two large closets as you enter and an array of custom-designed closets between the master bedroom and bath. The windowed master bathroom includes a steam shower and Jacuzzi bathtub. The third corner room is a kitchen with a gorgeous eight Riverview.

This apartment is distinguished by its gracious and spacious layout of beautifully proportioned rooms. Sunlight spills into each room through all 13 windows of this masterfully renovated residence. 3% flip tax paid by the purchaser.

In summary, it has been said that nothing does more to combat stress and to maintain health than to be in the presence of nature and water. This apartment offers both in abundance.

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.
