The complete renovation of this masterpiece took over a year and was executed to perfection by the acclaimed design and architecture firm Moschella + Roberts. As you tour the apartment you will notice the great care and thought that has gone into every detail from the fixtures and systems to layout and design --- everything has been closely considered. From the moment you enter this unit it becomes clear that this Park Avenue apartment has been outfitted with the finest materials throughout the home to highlight the equally stunning art collection. You will find it easy to navigate this property slowly and fully experience the quiet peaceful sanctuary and outstanding quality of the finished home.
As you pass through this foyer of the expansive apartment, you are greeted by a large gallery showcasing an array of artwork and highlighting the beautiful details before you. The entire apartment is open and includes spacious rooms making the home feel grand - highlighting the lifestyle meant only for Park Avenue residents. The dining room and open kitchen are flooded with light from the western exposure - there is no better way to start or end your day. The professional grade kitchen is outfitted with the highest-end appliances all seamlessly integrated and include Wolf, Subzero and Miele. The limestone backsplash adds a sophisticated texture to the mix of materials. As seen throughout the home, the kitchen includes stunning custom woodwork and abundant cabinetry that was hand crafted specifically for the space. The balance achieved in this area enables you to entertain in a grand fashion or have casual intimate meals, a spatial versatility seldom found on Park Avenue. Hidden behind the door in the kitchen is a private guest suite with its own entrance/service door and designed to the same superior standards.
A private foyer with pocket doors leads you to the master bedroom suite. The foyer showcases a multitude of paintings and just behind one, a small latch opens into an expansive hidden walk-in closet. This area includes a hand crafted wine rack as well as custom built-in shelves, lighting and ample hanging space. As you leave the foyer, you enter into the master suite's dressing area complete with extra storage built with custom finishes. Nestled just to the left is the spa-like master bathroom with a large open glass shower and a gorgeously veined marble wall, radiant heat flooring, Duravit toilet and fixtures, heated towel rack as well as gorgeous light tile flooring. The airy master bedroom contains an entire antiqued mirror wall reflecting natural light throughout the room - completing all you would need in a master wing.
The living room is grand in scale with strategically positioned pops of color, symmetrical furniture placement and consistent attention to detail in the placement of the artworks displayed - this room is sheer perfection. This wonderful room includes a new limestone and marble clad decorative fireplace nestled between two walls of artwork with custom recessed lighting showcasing the collection. The second bedroom has been converted to a den for quiet reading or a movie night-in. The double pocket doors create the ultimate privacy and the brilliantly hidden Murphy bed allows additional room for guests. Fitted with a full en-suite bathroom, this can easily be converted back into an additional bedroom suite. The bathroom includes sleek black flooring and a white tiled backsplash bringing a modern décor to the room. Fixtures include a large rain showerhead, Toto toilet as well as a frosted window for privacy.
