Description

Located near Central Park, adjacent to the Hotel des Artistes, in the West 67th Street Artists Colony Historic District, 15 West 67th Street, was built in 1905 by cooperating artists and writers for the purpose of creating living space as well as studio space for their creative endeavors. 15 West 67th Street, known as Central Park Studios, is distinguished by its Gothic limestone facade and exquisite lobby murals, painted by one of the original residents, Robert V. Sewell, which are in the National Historic Register. The infrastructure of this century old cooperative was substantially upgraded in 2015. Residents enjoy the services of a full time doorman, automated elevator, live-in superintendent and roof top common terrace. Apartment 3RE was formerly the writing studio of the acclaimed literary icon and co-founder of the NY Review of Books, Elizabeth Hardwick, who resided at 15 West 67th Street, along with her husband, the poet, Robert Lowell. The creative energy of this powerful literary couple was transferred to the present owner who wrote her first published book in this venue.This pin drop quiet home features a double pane, 9' X 8' north facing atelier window surrounded by floor to ceiling custom built-in bookcases, and an inviting 2' X 8' window seat suitable for reading, meditating and afternoon naps. The seductive view of trees and townhouse gardens is truly unique. Special features include: Central Air-Conditioning with ancillary heat and de-humidifying features; 11' beamed ceilings; hardwood floors; an open plan kitchen with marble slab counters, top of the line appliances, a water purifier and stacked Miele washer/dryer; ceiling fans; a luxurious marble and mosaic tiled windowed bath with double vanities, and an over-sized walk-in shower.
