Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind sanctuary located in the historic and mystique-infused Whitby where such notable 20th Century icons as Doris Day, George Burns and Al Capone spent their days and nights. This serene, high floor home, in one of the largest 1BR lines in the building, retains its original, 1920s classic detail while at the same time offering all the comforts of contemporary living.
A welcoming entry foyer with large closet opens into the generously sized living room with its elegant, original oak floors, high, beamed ceilings and crown moldings. Oversized windows with Eastern exposures filter extraordinarily beautiful sunlight. The windowed, galley kitchen has been thoughtfully opened up and renovated with custom wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar creating an impressive dining space. The large, Southern and Eastern-exposed bedroom offers quiet privacy, custom, built-in shelving and is bathed in light, offering views of the theatre district skyline, strikingly glamorous at night. The ample bathroom is ideally located between the living room and bedroom, perfect for guests. It is also windowed and retains its vintage bathtub with glass shower doors, and stunning marble floor and wall tile. Large closets provide abundant opportunities for storage.
And finally, an affordable monthly maintenance makes this a highly attractive investment for the discerning buyer.
The Whitby, recently profiled in the New York Times, was designed by the esteemed architect Emery Roth (The San Remo, The Beresford) and completed in 1923. This 217-unit, noble structure, renowned for its impressive three sturdy bays and rippling brick cornice, is located on West 45th Street between 8th and 9th Aves in the heart of NYC's fabled theatre district.
The Whitby is a full-service co-op and features one of the most spectacular roofdecks in Midtown West with 360 degree, open city views. Amenities include a 24/7 doorman, new laundry room, storage, bike room, FIOS and a grand, newly renovated, Art Deco-inspired lobby. It is convenient to all major transportation and an abundance of restaurants, cafes and entertainment.
The Whitby is pied-a-terre, co-purchasing and pet-friendly.
