IN CONTRACT. The Saxony, a Beaux Arts beauty built in 1899, is architecturally significant for being the very first NYC apartment building designed by renowned architect Emery Roth. Inside you’ll find Apartment 52, a spacious mint condition Classic 8 that is the perfect blend of prewar and contemporary aesthetics.
This 3/convertible 4-5 bedroom north-eastern exposure apartment is defined by its gracious layout and its functionality for modern lifestyles. The apartment features 9’ 6” ceilings, striking historical moldings sprinkled throughout, windowed kitchen and baths, a laundry room, a home office, an elegant dining room, and a family room/den separated by original pocket doors from the double exposure corner living room which boasts a beautiful decorative stone fire-place, intricate handcrafted moldings and extraordinary ceiling ornament work.
The unit contains 11 closets (2 of them walk-ins), a built-in stereo system, and a fabulous chef’s eat-in kitchen with a custom-built banquette with storage underneath, beautiful to-the-ceiling maple cabinetry with nickel hardware and under lighting, quartz counter-tops, glass backsplash tiles, a Viking 4-burner gas and convection range with vented hood, a SubZero fridge and a Miele dishwasher, along with a pantry complete with a wine cooler. The master bedroom has an exceptionally detailed ceiling highlighted by clever uplighting, wonderful original wall panelling, and a tastefully renovated ensuite bathroom.
All things considered and impeccably renovated, its many custom touches, and room to live and grow characterize this noteworthy home which is centrally located in the heart of the Upper West Side near the best food shops, restaurants and convenient transportation.
