How does one begin to describe a spectacular bespoke prewar apartment overflowing with style and sophistication? Let's begin by stepping into the intimate entry foyer with its customized cedar wood closets lined with Lori Weitzner paper-backed linens, Cox of London, "Bronze Hand" wall sconce (inspired by a famous Caravaggio painting) and complimented by the platinum leaf mirrored wall by Artist, Maureen Fullam. There's also a seating nook with storage beneath it.
You'll be taken aback when entering the enormous main living area boasting custom millwork with tons of cabinetry. The perfect place to house books, decorative objects, and a Bang & Olufsen television w/ subwoofer + speakers, (included in sale). The stunning diagonally installed reclaimed hand planed fumed oak plank flooring was supplied by Baba Floors of North Carolina. They have been finished & sealed with a Swedish wax oil, no polyurethane here! A unique to this apartment prewar element includes two (2) circa 1930's arched-top built-in curios.
One will certainly cherish the impressive aerial views of London Terrace Gardens through four (4) double-paned sound insulating windows with superb views of the 1930's architectural embellishments such as, limestone balustrades, stone corbels, and Gothic style friezes. In the Spring months one can enjoy lush green ivy-covered walls filled with fledglings, in the Fall, the serene autumnal colors are simply delightful!
This pristine condition home would not be complete without its handsome and efficient windowed galley eat-in kitchen. Featuring stone slab countertops, abundant cabinetry w/ under mount lighting, and full-size top name appliances such as Lacanche French range. The interior walls have a unique gesso & wax application applied by Dean Barger Studios with sections upholstered in Venetian inspired Fortuny wall coverings. Many custom fixtures are from H. Theophile.
The European inspired spa-like windowed bathroom is outfitted with a marble and porcelain tile encased shower stall, Apparatus Studio bronze picture sconce, and leather and bronze vanity light. Some additional accoutrements include an exotic wood vanity w/ under mount sink, linen closet, and Italian stucco lustro matte plaster wall application by Dean Barger Studios. The custom finished bath fixtures were sourced from THG Paris.
For those with an ever-expanding wardrobe, there are plenty of closets with built-in storage capabilities in the large dressing room. The lighting in three (3) closets with custom interiors was installed by Sean O'Connor Lighting Studios and the walls are upholstered in De Le Cuona linen. Two (2) custom built mahogany and leather chest of drawers allow for additional storage.
There is no question London Terrace Towers is one of the most exceptional and iconic circa 1930's prewar residential buildings featuring 24hr lobby attendants and porters with access to our magnificent Olympic size indoor heated pool, state of the art health facility, including use of steam rooms and saunas. We just love our lushly planted and teak furnished roof deck (w/ shower).
You'll be in awe when taking in the breathtaking views of Manhattan's most famous landmark buildings and New Jersey skyline in the distance.Upon entering our 24 hour attended lobbies (ceilings styled after a famous Palace in London), you will surely feel like Royalty. There is an indoor garage (not part of Co-op) located on premises (separate fee applies).
