A rare combination. This sunny south-facing duplex on the 15th and 16th floors of the legendary Hotel des Artistes, once owned by famed artist Leroy Neiman, offers the best of both worlds – a modern renovation that complements the meticulously restored prewar details. The juxtaposition of old and new is evident upon entering the duplex's lower level. It features a stained-glass original entry window off a proper foyer, which has custom built-in closets and a well-placed modern powder room. The sun-flooded main living space, with a side view of the Park, has been thoughtfully transformed into a loft like ~30 foot-long great room that features a decorative original plaster ceiling and an oversized wood-burning fireplace with original oak mantle. A top-of-the-line chef's kitchen with calacatta marble countertops, a 4-burner + griddle Wolf stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator and farmhouse sink opens up to the great room. The second level currently features 2 well-sized bedrooms and an oversized windowed landing which is configured as a den, but can easily be changed back to its original 3-bedroom layout or closed off to create a more private office. The gracious master suite includes walk-in closets, an abundance of custom cabinetry and a pristine primary bath. The second bedroom is also well proportioned and has easy access to a windowed second full bath. Other notable features of this special duplex include a Sonos sound system, in-unit washer and dryer, solid white oak floors, app-controlled central air conditioning and a spacious private storage unit on the building's second floor. The Hotel des Artistes is an iconic neo-gothic luxury building originally developed in 1917 as an artist's cooperative. The full-service building offers a suite of amenities rarely seen in a prewar building – such as a swimming pool, squash court, state-of-the-art gym, concierge, landscaped roof terrace and discounted dining/room service from Leopard at the des Artistes. Just steps away from both Lincoln Center and Central Park – this pet-friendly cooperative is one of the westside's most sought-after buildings and locations. 75% financing permitted and pied-a-terre friendly. *Some of the rooms in this apartment have been virtually staged.
