Impeccably renovated 6,110 square foot condo is perfect for the buyer seeking the space of a townhouse in a full service, historically iconic building. Six bedrooms including a sprawling luxurious master suite with sitting room, two master baths, a midnight bar with refrigerator and sink, and two dressing rooms with copious custom fitted storage spaces, all boast masterfully crafted millwork, a carved marble Chesneys mantel and top-of-the-line fixtures and hardware. The additional four bedrooms are equipped with pristine en-suite baths and spacious walk-in, fitted closets.Illustrious cabinet-maker Christopher Peacock created the gloss black and honey oak cabinetry in the massive, multi-windowed kitchen. The floor is a custom mosaic in mixed marbles and honey onyx with slabs of quartzite and quartz counters. The huge center island accommodates extensive seating as well as a sink and refrigerator drawer. All appliances, Sub-Zero, Viking, Miele, Wolf and JennAir were chosen for their pre-eminence in their categories. The adjoining informal dining room/den is fitted with custom cabinetry and an additional Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer and a 30" wine fridge.Throughout the apartment are floors of American Oak hardwood plank with decorative mahogany inlay. Mahogany doors in the style of the original Apthorp doors are found throughout the formal areas of the apartment. Mahogany paneling and a 30' wall of custom, finely crafted cabinetry with faux shagreen accents provide abundant storage in the huge Great Room. Both the Parlor and the Great Room have soaring ceilings, highlighted by the indirect lighting from the coved ceilings. A carved marble Chesneys mantel in the Parlor adds warmth and focus to this gracious home.From the entry foyer with the original Apthorp marble and stone mosaic floor are entrances to the Library, Master Suite and the Parlor. The palatial Library faces the serenely peaceful, beautifully landscaped Apthorp courtyard. Bookcases and custom cabinetry of carved mahogany and elm burl line the walls of the room punctuated by a beautiful mantle of carved Pietra Serena Limestone with marble inset. Heavy Mahogany and Ebony pocket doors ensure quiet and privacy.Streaming light fills this palatial apartment all day from the large new double pane windows with East, West and North exposures which complements the soaring ceilings. Ada Louise Huxtable, the rigorous Grande Dame of architecture criticism, had touted second-floor living as an urban ideal, for its treetop views and human scale. Welcome to the urban ideal!A large laundry room, equipped with two washers and dryers, counter space and a sink and two elegantly appointed powder rooms complete this spacious and magnificent home.Smart technology pervades the home with a sophisticated Creston system that controls remotely or in person, lights, shades, cameras, music and temperature. Design and execution was overseen by Elias Associates, a New York City Design firm that extended their expertise and years of professional experience to create this residential masterpiece. An expert in The Apthorp, and specializing in historic renovation, Fernando Papale of BP Architects, PC, served as architect. If one desires a larger space or guest apartment, the adjacent unit, 2KS, is available for purchase. The combined apartments 2LM and 2KS can become contiguous through a privately owned corridor to create a nearly 8,000 square-foot residence. Built in 1908 by William Astor, The Apthorp is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is one of Manhattan's most famous and coveted residences. Among the many desirable features are 24-hour gate attendants, doormen, handy men, on site property manager and garage.
