BREATHTAKING VIEWS ON GRAMERCY PARK CUSTOM MADE FOR GRAND ENTRANCES: APARTMENT 3B Unlike any residence on the park. A twenty-four foot entry gallery delivers one to the magnificent interior: a voluminous great room graced with massive textured plaster walls and soaring 12 foot high ceilings. All overlooking the coveted, private, historic verdant square through impossible floor-to-ceiling 'Walls of Glass'. This vista is matched only by the 2729 square foot well-appointed floor plan which beckons lively entertaining or quiet evenings in front of the wood-burning fireplace. The loft-like design delivers a lovely light-filled, floor-through continuum via humongous southern and northern exposures. Pure aesthetic reveals itself in the new chefs kitchen designed by the owner, an aficionado of the culinary arts and pleasures. Custom made in Brooklyn, the gigantic 115' x 54' island is constructed of the finest stainless steel with a fully integrated 45' x 18' dish drain sink. Full wall backsplash is white subway tile and touches of warm wood mix with the stainless finishes. Handsome. This immaculate design includes everything necessary for the experience. Excepting the Wolf range, complete with pot filler, all appliances are stainless steel and by Sub-Zero: full size glass refrigerator, matching wine storage (140+ capacity), separate ice maker, two under-counter freezer drawers. Full height under-counter glider drawers and open shelving provide quick easy access. The jewel-like, park-facing library with adjacent study/office, enriched by beautiful Wenge paneling, provides a quiet spot to read or work. It can also be used as a 3rd bedroom, and plumbing exists for a third bath should one so desire. Both en suite bedrooms are tucked away from the entertaining. Primary suite features custom closets outfitted in Grey Oak by Poliform and a spa-like bath with travertine double basins, heated floor, a deep soaking tub and a large steam shower. The serene Zen-like second bedroom is a result of its luxurious cashmere lined walls, a most elegant sound-proofing. Misc: Roman travertine from Tivoli is featured throughout the apartment as well as white oak floors. All new HVAC, new solid walnut doors and hardware. Sound system installed. Created by Ian Schrager and designed by acclaimed British architect, John Pawson, 50 Gramercy Park North is the perfect combination of storied history and modern luxury. Located on Manhattan's last private park, 50 GPN is a discreet boutique cooperative run with condo rules, and offering its residents 24 hour doorman and concierge, and most importantly, a key to Gramercy Park. Shown by Appointment. *Hotel services (in-room dining, housekeeping, valet, catering) will resume with the re-opening of the Gramercy Park Hotel. Established in the 1830's by Samuel B. Ruggles, Gramercy Park, remains a well-kept respite from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Steeped in history and period architecture, it remains appealing to all generations, ensconced just north of the ever-evolving, ever current restaurant row of historic Irving Place. 3B overlooks the original townhouses that still grace Gramercy Park West and the beautiful structures lining the southern edge, among them the National Arts and Players Clubs.
