Description

Ultra-rare opportunity, this unique and majestic 2-bedroom duplex apartment, boasts an open-concept layout with abundant east-facing light. It is in estate condition, providing the perfect opportunity for a discerning buyer to reimagine and transform it into their dream home. The Sage House is a hidden gem in one of the most beautiful historical buildings in the heart of Gramercy Park.

Entertain in comfort in the inviting kitchen that opens into the sunny living and dining room to seamlessly connect all the spaces. A nice powder room completes the lower level. The double height 11'5" - 12'5" lofty ceilings await you as you walk up the winding staircase to the second floor, making this apartment feel both bright and spacious. Located the end of the hallway, is the king-size master bedroom and spacious second bedroom that both have two beautifully arched bright east-facing windows. There is also a nice separate full bathroom off both bedrooms and an upstairs second entrance.

Besides Gramercy Park, The Sage House is two-and-a-half blocks from Madison Square Park and convenient to nine subway lines, as well as the city's best restaurants, Fotografiska (the largest photography museum in the world) and Union Square Greenmarket.

Sage House was built in 1913 for the Russell Sage Foundation, a social welfare nonprofit that was an early advocate of social work and urban planning. Renowned architect Grosvenor Atterbury designed the building in the style of a Florentine Renaissance palazzo and included vaulted ceilings with a rough-cut red sandstone facade with carved decorative shields. It was converted to residential use in 1975, and residents have access to a 24-hour doorman, live-in resident manager, laundry room, bike room, and storage. Friendly co-op board, sublets, pied-a-terres, gift of funds, and pets allowed. The building also allows up to 80% financing and has a liberal subletting policy available after 1 year of ownership with board approval.

Please Note: showing hours are Monday-Friday 9:30am-5:30pm, Saturday & Sunday 11:00am-3:00pm, great for every shareholder.
