A stunning Lower East Side condo saturated with natural light and a massive private courtyard, this furnished 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom home is beautifully designed by acclaimed interior designer Alex P. White - admired for his provocative, unconventional style. White uses finishes and decor in neutral tones to create a calm and elegant atmosphere.
Features of this 686 sq. ft. apartment include designer-selected wide plank white oak flooring, unique concrete ceilings, oversized casement windows with southern exposure, warm color tones and textures, high-end fixtures and finishes, and a convenient in-home washer/dryer. There is also a 451 sq. ft. private courtyard equipped with a barbecue grill and spacious dining table.
Beyond a tasteful foyer adorned with a reach-in coat closet, the home flows into a spacious, open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen. A glass door leads to a generous terrace featuring gilded bronze bricks, charred-wood planter boxes and concrete dining furniture. Inside the apartment, concrete ceilings were left unfinished, lending a raw aesthetic to the space. The custom kitchen - designed to merge style and functionality - is equipped with an eat-in peninsula, onyx lacquer cabinetry with under-cabinet LED lighting, sleek quartz countertops, a matching backsplash, a Waterworks faucet, and a suite of fully-integrated appliances from Miele. A bar is lined with wooden stools from Coil + Drift. The kitchen looks upon a living room with a mix of shapes and textures. One wall is lined with a built-in sofa wrapped in Belgian linen and traverline lounge table - both designed by White. The opposing wall features a large walnut shelving unit.
The bedroom possesses private closet space and easy access to an immaculate marble bathroom with Waterworks fixtures and a custom vanity. White custom created a massive platform bed with a headboard that rises to the ceiling, while a slender black cabinet by Brooklyn designer Stephen Bukowski contrasts with the light tones that dominate the space.
