This is a unique opportunity to own in the historic landmarked Wilbraham building. Residence 7B is an elegantly proportioned, renovated studio, boasting 10-foot ceilings and generous width, making for a great flow and spaciousness. Enter into a kitchen/dining area, from which three large walk-in closets flow. The custom efficiency kitchen, designed by Solveig Fernlund, has a Gaggenau cooktop, under counter stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, stainless steel countertop, and custom cabinetry with soft-close drawers, cut-out pulls, and chic multi-ply edged framing.
The bedroom/living area has a handsome decorative corner fireplace with marble surround and a dentil-banded mantel. A large sash window looks over to the ornately-carved white limestone walls of the Holland House, built in 1891. The bathroom is sheathed in honed white Carrara marble, and has been painstakingly restored, with the surprisingly deep original bathtub preserved and a 1911 Tepeco china sink with vintage nickel faucets installed. A Toto toilet with a multifunction bidet seat adds a note of modern luxury.
The whole apartment has undergone a renovation - old cables removed, new cables installed and buried where possible, the original wood floors stripped, refinished and preserved. The walls have been patched and repainted, with the living/bedroom entrance arch reconfigured to allow maximum natural light to flow into the kitchen. The original plaster crown moldings have been restored, and the baseboard moldings carefully enhanced to balance the proportions of the crown.
Halfway between the Empire State Building and the Flatiron, the Wilbraham is an oasis of calm in the epicenter, that is the NoMad district, where fashionable boutique hotels like the Ace and the NoMad will soon be joined by the four-star Virgin Hotel and the Rafael Vinoly-designed Ritz-Carlton NoMad. The building boasts an elegant lobby with original molding and a cast iron staircase. There is a live-in superintendent, a laundry room in the basement, and an elevator. The building has a very liberal sublet policy, no flip tax, and permits guarantors, pied-a-terres, co-purchases, and parents buying for children. Pets are welcome. Lastly, its close proximity to all major train lines, such as the 4,5,6 N,R,W,Q B,D,F, as well as the 33rd Street PATH, make this location most desirable.
