Looking for a home with unobstructed, triple-exposure (N,S,E) prime views from every room, naturally sunbathed, expansive interior space, real/functional combination layout, immense storage space, all en-suite bathrooms, great condition, and in the most convenient location for everyday living? Look no more. Efficiently and thoughtfully laid out from being exclusively designed by the building's developer and architect from the ground up, this 3,477 sq.ft., 5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom combination home perched high in the sky on the 24th floor is sure to impress. From the moment you walk in through your grand foyer, you immediately feel the home's airiness and volume. Flowing into your massive corner living room with 11ft ceilings, you are immediately struck by the spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows with jaw-dropping, double-exposure endless city skyline, East River, both Triborough, and 59th Street Bridges, and Long Island City views. As mesmerizing as these views are during the day, in the evening they become wonder-filled and magical, leaving you enchanted.
The heart of the home is in the dining area where you get to enjoy the most beautiful direct river views, all while being open to the living room and open kitchen. The beautiful chef's kitchen with spectacular views is fully equipped with a suite of fully integrated stainless steel appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Miele vented hood, Wolf oven/range, wine fridge, and showcases black granite countertops, eat-in island/breakfast bar and plenty of cabinet space.
The hallway off the foyer that leads to the other bedrooms is lined on both sides with endless closets, providing maximum storage capacity. All 5 bedrooms are created equal and have stunning open city views, their own private en-suite bathroom, and custom closets. The generous double-exposure, corner master bedroom has an abundance of custom closet space (5), southern and eastern city views, en-suite windowed spa-like limestone/marble bathroom with dual-sink vanity, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and a separate deep soaking Kohler tub- perfect for pampering yourself after a long day.
Some additional highlights include multi-zone central ac/heat, a convenient glass-tiled powder room located within the foyer, 21 closets throughout, washer/dryer in-unit with side sink, recessed lighting, Creston lighting system and wired for surround sound entertainment. For added privacy, the bedroom wing can be accessed through a secondary entrance.
Because this particular home was built exclusively, this combination home has resulted in a much more efficient/comprehensive layout forming a cohesive floorplan offering balanced bedroom sizes that many other combination homes (particularly in this building) do not offer. Other combination homes combined two separate apartments, by reconfiguring their original layout, thus resulting in an unbalanced and incongruous layout.
