Spectacular design, style and craftsmanship are hallmarks of a modern renovation of a classic Emery Roth six room residence. This home has a twenty-eight foot living room, almost fourteen foot formal dining room, two bedrooms, a guest room and three full bathrooms. A bibliophile's love of art and joy in entertaining were the inspiration for this harmonious renovation maintaining the prewar elegance with modifications for today's lifestyle. Enter an exquisite Lobby that is indicative of Emery Roth's reputation for elegant living and a preview of his trademark details: oversized rooms, high ceilings and hardwood floors. The entry foyer is the perfect receiving room that leads you into a stunning living room. Serene with a custom lighting plan, floor to ceiling bookcases complete with a sliding mahogany library ladder, a bar, travertine mantel surrounding the working fireplace, three oversized single pane windows, herringbone hardwood floors and 9'-6" ceilings. Walk through the built-in bookcases on either side of you, into a grand library and study. This was the second bedroom which was smartly opened into the adjacent living room, creating a dramatic focal point for the entertaining space. With pocket doors and its own full bath, it can easily still be a second bedroom. The corner primary bedroom suite is entered from walking through a wondrous hall, that upon discovery is a grand dressing room with spectacular built-ins on either side of a dressing hallway. The bedroom features a large ensuite windowed bath, a wonderful walk-in closet, more built-in bookcases, and also single paned oversized windows. A breakfast room was cleverly created from borrowing some footage from the entry foyer. This charming room has a wet bar with shelving above.
