FEELS LIKE PARIS
A very special apartment at the iconic Ansonia, this two bedroom, two bath home has been thoughtfully renovated with an old world charm and an exceptional eye for detail.
From the moment you enter this sun-filled corner home you are struck by the rooms expanse, reminiscent of a grand salon. With 9 Â½ foot ceilings and huge beautiful arched transom windows, the views are fantastic - east over the Apple bank and San Remo buildings as well as open views north up Broadway.
The uniquely designed open kitchen was conceived to look like a library with cleverly concealed top of the line appliances.
The two bedrooms face North onto the facade of the Northern section of the Ansonia and when you open the windows you feel like youÂre in a Parisian neighborhood. The master bedroom has an ensuite bath, a walk-in closet as well as built in closets.
Some of the many special features of this apartment include a gas fireplace, beautiful herringbone floors, central air conditioning controlled by a Nest cooling system, recessed custom lighting with updated controls, substantial moldings, custom cabinetry, generous closet space, and a washer/dryer in the apartment. All the closet doors are beautifully paneled with impressive brass hardware. Everything has been tastefully renovated with fine attention to detail.
The Ansonia was completed in 1904 as a residential hotel. It is steeped in history, having been home to many celebrated residents including Enrico Caruso, Babe Ruth and Arturo Toscanini. The building originally housed a farm on the roof, delivering fresh eggs daily to its tenants. It was converted to a condominium in 1992. The building also housed the Continental Baths where Bette Midler performed early in her career. It was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1980. The exquisite Beaux-Arts details make it one of the most beautiful and unique buildings in New York.
The Ansonia is a full-service building with doorman, concierge, bike storage, roof deck and garage located near Lincoln Center, Central Park, Riverside Drive and close to the finest restaurants and shopping. There's a roof deck, storage and pets are permitted.
You wonÂt be disappointed.
