With only 13 apartments on 15 floors of the pre-war building designed by Rosario Candela, this historical Manhattan structure offers both privacy and luxurious service. The white-glove service includes a full-time doorman, elevator operator and live-in resident manager.
And in the duplex itself, the stunning black and white marble floor at the private entrance sets the tone for a lifestyle that is at once easy and gracious. “It’s absolutely perfect for today’s buyer,” says Leslie Singer, licensed associate real estate broker with Brown Harris Stevens in NYC. “Sutton Place is an unbelievably beautiful enclave.”
The duplex has lots of room for entertaining, with wide, spacious rooms, including a double-sized wood-paneled library and formal dining room with 10-foot ceilings. Architectural details of the pre-war building have been preserved to retain their historic charm. At the same time, the eat-in kitchen has a modern feel, top-of-the-line appliances and an island for informal dining. A large corner office also allows for working from home.
“The top trends among buyers have included buying bigger,” says Singer. “We’ve seen over the last year or so, the need and desire for extra space.”
All the bedrooms face south to the street. The primary suite, in its own wing, is very private and includes a dressing room, two full en-suite bathrooms and adjoining state-of-the-art home gym. The second floor is accessible by the gorgeous, curved stairway.
Amenity-rich buildings have seen strong sales recently, particularly those uptown in quieter neighborhoods close to Central Park. “There’s always a desire for outdoor space,” says Singer. “Being close to the park—that can’t be underestimated.”
