Property Description

This elegantly renovated three bedroom/convertible four bedroom, four bathroom home has all of the amenities and upgrades one would expect in a showcase apartment. The current owner spent over a year renovating this masterpiece to perfection. No detail was overlooked or expense spared in this meticulous transformation of three apartments thoughtfully designed into a sensational, modern living space. One of the highlights of the apartment is the magnificent 650+sf terrace which has an automated irrigation system, lighting and is fully wired for tv and audio. The bedroom wing, comprised of three bedrooms, has custom milled solid 6" wide plank wenge floors. The master bedroom suite is truly luxurious and includes a huge dressing room completely outfitted with custom shelving and cabinetry. The spa-like ensuite master bathroom has a double 40" catalano sink, Neorest, Italian porcelain tile, a two person shower and steam room with bench and an electronically controlled integrated Kohler system of 20 shower heads and body sprays. As you enter the living space, you find a true chef's windowed kitchen with stainless steel, top-of-the line appliances - a Wolf Range and hood which vents to the outside, a Viking double refrigerator, a Miele dishwasher, microwave, a warming oven, granite countertops, custom Maple cabinetry and exceptional storage. State of the art technology is featured throughout this sophisticated home which is fully Cat 5 wired for a multizoned fully integrated Crestron smart home system with touchpads in every room to control music, tvs, lighting, electronic solar/blackout shades and air conditioners. Speakers are built-in throughout providing top quality sound in every room including the master dressing room, steam room and terrace. There is also an integrated 700 bottle temperature controlled custom wine cellar. This immaculate apartment was designed such that a fourth bedroom with ensuite bath and walk-in closet could easily be restored with the addition of one wall (see alternate floorplan). The Sterling is a full service co-operative built in 1959 and has a full-time Doorman, live-in Super and a roof deck. The location is incredibly convenient, only a few blocks from major subway lines, world-class shopping and top notch restaurants.

Three Beds in Turtle Bay


Turtle Bay | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Turtle Bay is best known for hosting the world’s dignitaries at United Nations once a year as the world institution sits on the eastern edge of the neighborhood along the East River.

But this midtown location offers a lot more, a bustling neighborhood teeming with high-rise apartment buildings and an easy walk to the Midtown business district.

Over the past two decades, developers have assembled almost every corner development site along Second Avenue and have built straight up. Not much left to assemble.

Some of the more glamorous, and of course most expensive, addresses are in close proximity to the United Nations. Trump World Tower, which caused a big stir with area residents, in particular, Walter Cronkite, when it was built sits just north of the United Nations Grounds. 

In contrast to the proliferation of the residential highrise, Turtle Bay does have some lovely tree-lined streets between the avenues. In particular, Turtle Bay Gardens, which fronts both 48th Street and 49th Street between Third and Second Avenue has always been a haven for the rich and famous.
