UNIQUE. An overused word that means exactly what it should at 48 Gramercy Park North, No. 2A: a one-of-a-kind residence directly overlooking Gramercy Park. This home blends elements of an open loft with a classic Manhattan apartment in a circa 1900 townhouse with elevator and tastefully appointed public space. Enter into a warm and welcoming book-lined foyer that leads directly into a great room centered around an oversized wall of windows. Light fills the apartment from dawn to dusk and two sets of triple-paned French doors open to a lovely balcony from which you can practically touch the flora of Gramercy Park. In the winter, the view becomes even more magical with an unobstructed view of the Gramercy Park's towering Calder sculpture, the National Arts Club and the landmark townhouses of 20th street, ranked by Time Out as Manhattan's most beautiful. The living room's extraordinarily high 16 foot ceiling allows for a mezzanine currently configured as an office and additional sleeping loft. The master bedroom suite includes a bathroom and separate den. An ornate marble wood burning fireplace anchors the bedroom and is surrounded by custom designed built-in bookcases that accentuate the soaring 14 foot high ceilings. There is a full bath off the foyer with washer and dryer and an open kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Ownership at 48 Gramercy Park North, a beautifully maintained and well managed boutique co-op, comes with the coveted key to Gramercy Park. $484.09 assessment through 2021. Showings weekends by appointment only.
