From the moment you step out of the elevator, onto the semiprivate landing and into your gracious entry foyer, prepared to be wowed by the rare combination of views, light, and space in this sky-high, glamorous, renovated, oversized, two bedroom and two and a half bath luxurious apartment. The impressive and captivating panoramic north and east facing views, seen through new state-of-the-art windows, are equally gorgeous day and night, and extend for miles uptown, as well as over the east river, past Long Island City, and all the way out to the Whitestone Bridge.
With over 1,750 square feet, and nine foot ceilings, this sunny, happy home exudes comfort, as each room is wonderfully large. The living room has a wall of windows that wrap around to the corner dining room lending itself to glorious entertaining. The lighting is custom, there are surround sound speakers, crown and baseboard moldings, and hardwood floors. The stunning powder room is perfectly placed off the entrance galley.
The spectacular view from the kitchen window is a sight to be seen! The kitchen has been stunningly outfitted with custom cabinetry, Viking, Thermadore, Miele, and GE appliances, granite countertops, and a TV. In the separate pantry area, there is storage and an LG washer dryer, as well as easy access to the service elevator for any deliveries.
