Apartment 4 East is an exquisite, half-floor, six-room home in an architecturally significant building located on one of Manhattan's finest blocks.A private elevator vestibule opens to the foyer which leads to a bright, high-ceilinged, south-facing living room and adjacent formal dining room (with pocket doors) that can be converted to a fourth bedroom.Off the dining room is a well-designed kitchen large enough to accommodate multiple cooks and guests, with hand-painted custom Christopher Peacock kitchen cabinetry, stone slab counters with custom carved edges, Sub Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, six-burner Wolf range, and a Miele dishwasher. Separating the entertaining area from the bedroom wing is a long hallway with a powder room and a laundry/utility room with entry to the service corridor. All three bedrooms face north with a tranquil view of townhouse gardens. The primary bedroom suite has a dressing room lined with solid-wood trimmed closets with inset mirrored doors, a luxurious slab marble five-piece bath, and a separate walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms each have ample closets and full baths.Amenities include a full-time doorman and concierge, storage bins, bicycle room, private wine cellars (at additional cost), fitness center with private training studio, residents' lounge with a catering kitchen, and a club/game room overlooking the landscaped private garden. The building's interior and exterior were designed by William Sofield, a celebrated AD 100 designer whose attention to detail, style, and craftsmanship throughout sets this property apart from its pre-war and post-modern peers. The authenticity and beauty of the facade fits in seamlessly with the grandest pre-war buildings in this exclusive neighborhood. A pair of 22-foot pear tree sculptures flank the arched entrance which features ground-floor window grilles that were made by the company that fabricated Buckingham Palace's gates. The building's scenic, convenient location, just east of Park Avenue, is close to Central Park, Museum Mile, a wide range of restaurants, the city's best gourmet take-out, Madison Avenue shops, everyday shopping, and multiple lines of transportation.
