Through a private and keyed entry vestibule finished with honed St. Clair marble flooring and wire brushed rift cut European white oak wall paneling with integrated closets, residents are greeted by a secure steel and tempered art glass entry door leading into a stately entry gallery. The entry gallery leads to the expansive 36'11" x 16'8" south-facing living and dining room, featuring four large-scale casement-style windows overlooking East 79th Street and Park Avenue. The kitchen, custom designed by Steven Harris Architects, can easily be opened or closed to the living space via recessed Harmon Hinge doors, and is outfitted in hand-painted custom Italian cabinetry with polished nickel trim, honed Imperial Danby marble slab countertops and backsplashes, and a custom stainless steel island with a Nordic Gray marble slab countertop. Professional-grade appliances include a Wolf 6-burner range with two ovens, speed oven, and fully-vented range hood; Sub-Zero refrigerator, with separate freezer and wine refrigerator columns; two Miele dishwashers; and two Julien under-mount stainless steel sinks with Dornbracht faucets. The laundry room, conveniently located next to the service entrance, is outfitted with custom lacquer-finished millwork cabinetry, stainless steel sink with honed white Caesarstone countertop, and high capacity LG washer and dryer which vents to the exterior.
The light-filled primary bedroom suite features two oversized walk-in closets and a large-scale east-facing casement-style window overlooking historic townhouses and protected gardens. The primary bath is outfitted with honed Olympic Danby stone slab full-height walls and floors; a custom acid etched mirror vanity with an Olympic Danby stone slab countertop, nickel trim, and Lucite drawer pulls; recessed chrome-trimmed medicine cabinets featuring integrated lighting; and a Kaldewei Puro undermount tub with an Olympic Danby stone slab tub deck and apron. Additional features include a separate nickel framed stall shower in fluted glass and a Duravit water closet.
Secondary bedrooms are generously proportioned and feature ensuite bathrooms clad in Honed Nestos Grey stone full-height tile walls and floors, a custom floating millwork vanity with a Nestos Grey slab countertop, and either a stall shower enclosed with frameless ribbed glass or a Kaldewei Puro undermount tub with a Nestos Grey slab tub deck and apron. Dornbracht chrome fixtures and a Duravit water closet complete these refined spaces.
The powder room provides a striking focal point with a floating vanity with a honed Maya quartzite slab countertop, custom integral sink, and matching door surrounds and base details along with Dornbracht fittings in a platinum finish and a Duravit water closet.
Additional thoughtful residence features include pre-wiring for home automation, pre-wired shade pockets in every room, and VRF individually zoned heating and cooling.
