This exquisitely renovated prewar 2 bedroom looks out onto the terraces of the iconic River House and has a side view of the East River. The art deco coop is a slice of old world perfection nestled in one of Manhattan's most distinguished tree-lined cul-de-sac streets. A gracious entrance foyer leads to the beautifully proportioned square living room where one finds a lovely wood burning fireplace and plenty of natural light through the three impressive Tudor style leaded glass windows. It's the quintessential Manhattan refuge: gracious, elegant and very comfortable. Extensive renovations were completed in 2018 including upgraded electric, heating, plumbing and thru-the-wall air conditioning. The apartment is in pristine, move-in-ready condition. The kitchen was designed for efficiency and style. Floor to ceiling custom sliding doors provide both easy access and privacy when needed. Custom cabinets and counter tops in handsome grey and white, Miele appliances and a wine refrigerator give the kitchen a smart, chic feel. The ensuite primary bedroom features two oversized leaded glass style windows and a spacious closet. The second bedroom has been beautifully remodeled and could double as a library/office. It has a large south facing window and two closets. Both bathrooms are windowed and enjoy high end finishes and radiant heated floors. This 9th floor apartment could be a unique primary residence or pied-de-terre. Original oak hardwood floors throughout, beamed ceilings, custom lighting and window shades complete this immaculate residence. The building enjoys a rich history and residents over the years include Manhattan luminaries such as: Dorothy Parker, Lillian Gish, and Clare Booth Luce. The East Midtown Waterfront Project is creating a 32-mile loop around Manhattan providing waterfront access and open space for the local community with connected space for pedestrians and cyclists. It's a great time to buy in the neighborhood! Close to public transportation, convenience, and specialty stores; an excellent cheese shop, two of the best florists in the City, a French bakery and several wine shops. D'Agostinos and Whole Foods are a few blocks away and the happy hour at The Smith is legendary. The staff in this 52 unit, full-service cooperative includes a full-time doorman, a live-in resident manager as well as porters and handymen. Mail and newspapers are delivered directly to residents' doors. Amenities include a laundry room, bike room and storage. Pets are welcome and one block south is Peter Detmold Park on E 51st St / Beekman Place where one finds a quiet strip of gazebos, park benches, and a dog run beside the river.
