Welcome to unit 10D at historic Bryant Park Place, a rarely available home perched high above Bryant Park with spectacular views of the park and adjacent flagship building of the New York Public Library, and the Midtown Manhattan Skyline. The unique duplex loft one bedroom, plus home office or second bedroom, has two full baths, one on each level.
The lower level features an expansive living area with soaring 14" ceilings, oak hardwood flooring, a magnificent decorative fireplace and mantel, a built-in dry bar, a guest bathroom with stall shower, and large north-facing windows with built-in window seat bench overlooking the park. The large chef's kitchen is complete with tons of counter space and cabinetry, a dishwasher, a gas stove with venting microwave range hood, and opens directly to an adjacent large dining room, which is perfect for entertaining. The cozy upstairs loft with ceiling heights in excess of 5ft 8in, is large enough to accommodate a master bedroom with a second full bath with deep jacuzzi soaking tub, as well as a home office/den or second bedroom. There is ample storage with seven large closets throughout the apartment.
Bryant Park Place, originally built by Andrew Carnegie as the Engineer's Club in 1907, is a 12-story Beaux Arts building which has been designated a NYC landmark and is listed on the National Register as a historic and architecturally significant structure. The 82-unit full-service cooperative is ideally situated across the street from Bryant Park on the south side of West 40th Street midway between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. As you enter the building you are greeted by the friendly 24-hour door staff leading to the gilded lobby and elevators, with a grand marble staircase to the building's lower floors. There is a live-in resident manager, a laundry room, and storage available. The central location of this magnificent pre war building, provides all of the modern conveniences the city has to offer just beyond your doorstep, with easy access to all subways and transportation, theatre and cultural institutions, and a multitude of fine restaurants, cafes, and shopping, including a Whole Foods Market just around the corner.
Last, but not least, Bryant Park just across the street, is a beloved NYC destination famous for its lush seasonal gardens, alfresco dining, and year-round free seasonal activities ranging from ice skating and holiday shops in the winter to movies under the stars in the summer. It doesn't get any better than this.
Pied-a-terres and subletting allowed, and pets are welcomed.
