A lovely prewar full-service building located in the heart of the Upper East Side's 'Gold Coast' is home to a stunning, newly renovated, sun-filled 6-room home that was custom-designed utilizing the finest quality materials throughout while preserving the elegance and grand scale of prewar architecture. The beautiful, bespoke renovation combined two one-bedroom apartments into an expansive and bright six-room with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den/media room, home office or third bedroom. No detail was overlooked in the renovation by the high-end interior designer owners making this combination home one-of-a-kind. The ninth-floor corner home is filled with oversized windows drawing in abundant natural light and featuring fabulous open city and tree-lined brownstone block views from most rooms and two open exposures from the primary bedroom. The formal expanse is fabulous for large-scale entertaining with living room and formal dining room open to each other spanning over 40 feet.

Gorgeous preserved architectural elements include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, pristine crown and baseboard moldings, and a decorative fireplace with custom Chesney's mantle. The home is also filled with contemporary comforts and upgrades throughout including new electric, new through-wall heating and cooling units, new bathroom plumbing, high-end kitchen appliances and newly refinished wood floors. Both windowed bathrooms were fully renovated, designed with Waterworks fixtures, custom tile, pedestal sink and vanity and custom medicine cabinets; one with deep-soaking tub and one with walk-in spa shower. Both bedrooms are of equal, spacious proportions with open city views and feature beamed cove ceilings. The primary suite offers two open exposures and large dressing area.

The stunning, windowed kitchen was newly, gut renovated featuring custom designed flooring, top-of-the-line integrated appliances including a Fisher & Paykel induction cooktop and electric oven, Sub Zero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher, custom white transitional cabinetry with Waterworks brass knobs and pulls, Denby marble counters and custom mirror backsplash by Stephen Cavallo. Additionally, a beautiful, custom-designed butler's pantry off the foyer is perfect for entertaining. Additional high-end design elements include Venetian plaster finish in foyer and living room, custom upholstered den walls, custom hidden doors in bedrooms to maximize space, Hermes wallpaper in primary dressing area, Degournay hand-painted wallpaper in dining room and vintage mid-century light fixtures.
