Open views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and the East River from this high floor residence are only the start of why this is a haven(heaven) in the city. The ceilings are tall (13 feet), the windows are oversized, there is a fireplace, a true chef's kitchen (with SubZero refrigerator, Wolf stove and white Carrara marble countertops) and tons of thoughtful built-in storage spaces and hidden workspaces. The master bedroom is outfitted with a raised platform for the bed so you can wake up to views of the water. The leather pulls on custom cabinets and well laid out closet space that take advantage of the double height ceilings are a dream.
The master bedroom is separated from the two other bedrooms allowing more privacy. The washer and dryer are adjacent to the secondary bedrooms where laundry is made. The coat closet is right next to the front door and large enough to fit forty (40) coats and jackets.
Building amenities include a full-time doorman, a resident manager, handyman, a library lounge, bike storage and a roof terrace.
Easy access to restaurants, grocery stores, parks, hip boutiques and the ferry as well as the M and J Marcy subway.
