Elegant and renovated top floor pre-war one bedroom with a dressing room/office and views of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. This Gramercy Park gem has a graceful foyer which leads to an expansive living room featuring a wood burning fireplace, original mantle, built-in storage, beamed 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, a large dining area, and breathtaking views. There is a large guest closet in the foyer. This top floor residence also basks in light as it clears the building in front. Utilities are included in the maintenance.
The windowed chef's kitchen boasts a pantry, granite countertops, tons of counter space, storage nook, stainless steel appliances including a five-burner range, and under and inner-cabinet lighting all renovated in classic pre-war style. There is also a second egress behind the recessed refrigerator. Other thoughtful details include moldings throughout, pull-out spice racks, an extra half window insert for air-conditioning, and a hidden sponge and soap cabinet.
The primary bedroom is very spacious with a king-sized bed and room for a considerable amount of furniture. It has beamed ceilings and partial views. Adjacent to the bedroom is a dressing room currently configured as a walk-in closet and home office with custom cabinetry. In other D-line units, this area has been converted to a den, nursery, work out area or child's room.
The windowed bathroom has also been fully renovated with classic details including an overhead rain-shower head, subway tile with matching trim throughout, a whirlpool soaking tub, marble vanity, and custom cabinetry with recessed lighting and hidden outlets.
