Sotheby's International Realty - New York, NY
Across the elegant oval entrance gallery with Cedar marble floor, an expansive 35’ great room includes the living room, formal dining room and library, with three large triple windows overlooking the tree tops of East 63rd Street, filled with white blossoms in spring, and filling the rooms with lovely light all year round.
The newly completed renovation includes beautiful new solid white oak floors throughout the apartment, window sills of Woodgrain Light limestone and white onyx, and the wallpaper is by Hermes.
Off the formal dining room is the meticulously renovated windowed eat-in chef’s kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances by Miele, including the induction stove top, oven, microwave oven, refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, as well as a Miele washer and dryer. The custom cabinetry is of cerused white oak with statuario marble countertops and automated drawers, and contrasts beautifully against the stylish Ann Sacks silvered-aluminum backsplash, and the Jerusalem Grey limestone floor.
The private master bedroom suite with large triple window, which also overlooks the tree tops of East 63rd Street, is filled with lovely light and offers an adjacent dressing room, en suite master bath with heated ceramic tile floor, Toto comfort toilet and superb large shower and sink. A large walk-in closet and custom built-ins are adjacent.
The surprise of the apartment is the east facing brilliantly sunny 28’ family/media room with beautiful floor, beamed ceiling, built-in bookcases, and a large television screen. It is the quintessential room for relaxing and reading.
Additionally, the apartment offers a south facing bedroom wing with three generously proportioned sunny bedrooms, and three bathrooms, all with radiant heated floors, Toto toilets, hardware from Dornbracht, fixtures from Duravit, and lovely tiles from Porcelanosa or Ann Sacks. There is an adjacent dressing area with built-in closets as well.
Off of the foyer is an unexpected, delightful and charming office, and there is also a powder room of unique modern design.
Smart home technology includes Savant centralized control of the apartment’s multi-zoned air conditioning and humidification system, Crestron audio visual system, Lutron lighting, electronics, and motorized window shades controls for every room via iPads throughout the apartment. The apartment’s interior environment can also be controlled via the Savant iPhone app.
Maintenance includes all utilities, 5 day daily European style housekeeping service, window and deep cleaning upon request, and elegant room service by chef Michael White’s highly acclaimed on-premises newest upscale restaurant, Vaucluse.

Additional amenities include a fitness center, meeting space, laundry room, and bicycle storage. A storage room transfers with the apartment.
