Experience true 'wow factor' in this exceptionally designed fully appointed duplex home, with private outdoor space,that had the distinction of being the main feature in the New York Times Sunday real estate section August of 2018.As you enter the home, your eye is drawn across a long high-ceilinged gallery, with its brightly polished herringbone floors, to the first of the many large and impressive solid steel windows that are the undisputed signature element of the apartment.At the end of the gallery, you enter what can only be called a 'great room' with 14-foot ceilings atop a generous footprint that creates a volume of space that easily accommodates both living and dining. There is a wood burning fireplace in the center of the room and other appointments include a wet bar and a drop-down projection screen with the room wired for surround sound.One might sense a bit of a mid-century California vibe from the steel window style creating a 'glass house' feel with panels that open to a sunny terrace with a white brick garden wall as backdrop.The terrace floor is itself a beautifully unique architectural element of steel and glass.
The adjacent kitchen is another voluminous space featuring custom cabinetry, quartzite counters and a Moroccan tile backsplash with the central focal point a large, marble, waterfall design island. The kitchen is fully appointed with Sub-Zero refrigeration, a Viking 6 burner range, dual ovens and a Monogram wine refrigerator. A key element for those that truly cook is the external vented high-power blower. The main level also features a powder room replete with Ann Sacks tile.
A custom architectural steel staircase leads you to the bedroom level where you first find a library wall running the length of the bedroom hall. As you enter the master suite you are met by a sitting area with its own wood burning fireplace. The sitting area is divided from the sleep area by a louvered half wall, again adding to a hint of mid-century design. There is a wall of glass leading to a large terrace with half the terrace open to the sky and the other half sitting below the steel and glass terrace above. The master bath features a sizeable walk-in shower and double sinks. You also find two walk-in closets a hidden laundry and a lovely built-in vanity that completes the suite. There are two additional bedrooms and a second bath with elegant Ann Sacks tile.
Of special note, and not to be overlooked is an extensive Lutron HomeWorks QS full-home lighting system that powers high-end architectural and decorative lighting throughout along with a split AC system allowing for individual room control. 301 East 52nd Street is a full-service doorman building on a quiet residential street with the convenience of a parking garage just steps from the building. A great location with an abundance of services and restaurants and easy access to the rest of the city. Showings begin with an Open House on Sunday April 2nd from 12PM to 1PM.
