A palatial and sun-filled split two-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a bonus flexible room, spacious terrace, and stunning eat-in kitchen on a cul-de-sac street at the border of Gramercy and Kips Bay. Designed by renowned residential architect Kathy Chia of Desai Chia, this exceptional home is truly one-of-a-kind.
Upon entry, one immediately notices the southern sun pouring through a wall of windows at the end of a massive great room featuring generous areas for both living and dining. A glass door leads to a large, uncovered terrace complete with an abundance of natural light and gorgeous city views. Even the most discerning chef will feel immediately at home in the tremendous eat-in kitchen equipped with ample cabinetry (including a pantry), stylish green subway-tiled backsplash, stone countertops, garbage disposal, a breakfast bar with lighting pendants, and stainless steel appliances by Wolf, SubZero, and Bosch.
The larger of the two bedrooms easily accommodates king-sized furniture and features a windowed dressing alcove. Japanese-style Shoji screened pocket doors separate this bedroom from an additional bonus room that can easily be used for a den, home office, children's play space, or additional sleeping area. A second bedroom is positioned on the other side of the home and boasts an adjacent windowed bathroom.
Attractive covers for thermostatically controlled AC and heat, gleaming hardwood floors, and many customized closets are throughout this immaculate residence, and an in-unit washer/dryer is a wonderful convenience. Every window of the home faces the quiet cul-de-sac, allowing for optimal enjoyment of the terrace and a silent indoor experience. *Fun fact: This apartment served as Julia Roberts' character's home in the 2014 film "The Normal Heart."
