An oversized foyer with a walk-in coat closet warmly invites you into this expansive apartment where entertaining friends and family is a pleasure in the generously proportioned double living room just shy of 30-feet with masterfully crafted built-ins under four big windows featuring southern exposures and city views down to the Empire State Building and beyond. Dinner parties will be celebrated events in the formal dining room that easily accommodates a large table with seating for twelve, and you can retreat to the comfort of the library/study afterwards to continue the conversation. The heart of the home is a huge eat-in-kitchen with a wide island containing a wine fridge and room for seating, beautiful tiled backslash, an abundance of counter space and cabinets, specialty lighting, and high-end stainless steel appliances, including a washer and dryer. This apartment spans the full width of the building and has two separate bedroom wings, the first of which contains three gracious bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The spacious master bedroom suite has a very large custom walk-in closet with his & her sides and an en-suite bathroom with a glass-enclosed walk-in rain-shower.

An office with a custom built-in desk and shelves, and a small staff room complete this spectacular residence.
