This 4/5 person, 2 bedroom apartment is our new favourite! Comfortable and chic, this gem is in a building located on 23rd Street on the East side. 23rd Street boasts one of the most convenient locations, with a cross town bus just steps outside of your door and a subway only 3 blocks away.
There is a gourmet supermarket attached to the building as well as a wonderful selection of shops and restaurants so close by you may never want to leave the neighbourhood!
This beautifully designed, comfortably outfitted apartment is located on the 2nd floor (there is a lift) of a doorman building in the Kips Bay/ Grammercy part of town. It sleeps 4/5 in one double, one twin bedroom and ample room for an air mattress if necessary. Owned by an artist and former fashion designer, this custom decorated apartment is just perfect for visitors of all kinds, from families to executives.
The large space is a corner apartment with a courtyard to the rear and enclosed by soundproof windows, it has everything you'll need and extras you'll enjoy!
The entrance opens into a comfortable sitting area with the kitchen just beyond. Ideal for gatherings, the kitchen area has a smart lounge space with a leather sectional sofa in front of a large window with courtyard views, a countertop with bar stools and a small TV. Whether you are the cook or a guest you won't miss out on any of the action in this lively, social part of the apartment.
The modern kitchen has sleek gray countertops and cabinets, and stainless steel appliances including a gas range, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and toaster. There is a Keurig coffee machine that conveniently brews coffee by the cup and also serves as a kettle.
Next to the kitchen are stairs leading to the second floor as well as a hallway that leads to the large living area and further to the dining room. Behind the stairs is a folding treadmill available for guests' use.
The living room (16ft9 x 13ft6, 5.1m x 4.1m) has a lovely art-deco theme complimented by modern art, interesting furnishings and original pieces made by the owner. The room has a perfect sitting area with a loveseat, 2 leather easy chairs and a glass coffee-table, all across from a beautifully designed custom art deco cocktail bar / entertainment centre with a hidden TV, complete with cable channels. Comfortable for family or for small social gatherings there are plenty of conversation pieces to talk about, admire and enjoy!
Just beyond the kitchen is the most unique and eye catching part of this most appealing property – the greenhouse window enclosed dining area. This room (16ft10 x 9ft, 5.2m x 2.7m) was a small balcony that the owner custom converted to the gorgeous, illuminated, view-filled space it is now.
There is a large vintage stainless steel and glass table that seats up to 6, with 6 handsome white leather/stainless steel chairs to match. Between the views from the windows and the beautiful space inside you'll be tempted to eat in every night!
The two bedrooms and the bathroom are located on the second floor, upstairs. The master bedroom (15ft9 x 13ft9,4.8m x 4.2m) is modern art inspired with a bold modern print hanging above the full-sized bed (75" x 54") and large mirrored armoires on either side, perfect for storing your things. Next to the bed is a nightstand and reading lamps on either side.
If you'd prefer television to reading before you turn in, there is a TV with cable channels just across from the bed. Neatly tucked into the far corner of the room is a charming little workspace with a desk, office chair and computer.
The second bedroom is across the hall from the master and has two twin beds outfitted in lovely matching floral linens. There is also a night table with an alarm clock and across the room is a dresser for storage and a TV with regular channels. There is also a full closet available for storage in this room.
