Like the opening scene of a Broadway show, there's something magical about an elevator that opens into your private floor home. Welcome to Condo "Number 5" the residential masterpiece in the Philip Johnson-Alan Ritchie Architects design collection. This full floor two bedroom/two bathroom home was one of the first sold in this development; the best apartment in the building with the most impressive private outdoor space. For starters, the main living space feels spacious, yet minimal with plenty of southern light from its dramatic wall of windows and utterly spectacular private outdoor space positioned directly off of the living/dining room. The floor-plan is as fastidious as it is functional, making entertaining so straightforward. The State-of-the-art dramatic Bulthaup kitchen features the latest high-end appliances, a washer/dryer and the luxurious bathrooms create a serene spa experience. From the white metal clad facade to the luxurious boutique lobby, Number 5 Condominium is a modern sculpture amidst the historic landmarks of midtown Manhattan. You will love how this space so seamlessly blends private life with city life. Located at 5 East 44th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, Number 5 sits equidistant to many of New York City's desirable city attractions - namely Grand Central Station and its brilliant food markets and Oyster Bar, Bryant Park and New York library. Everything from bars and bites to basketball games, concerts and galleries are all truly walkable. 15 subway lines located within a 2 block radius for easy access to all of Manhattan and all 3 major airports. Direct train lines to upstate New York and Connecticut. 421a tax abatement until 2021. Sorry no pets allowed.
