Unique light-filled duplex corner apartment in one of Murray Hill's finest buildings, The John Murray House. Enjoy uninterrupted views of old New York including the Polish embassy and the Morgan Library from 12 fabulous windows!This 2600 square foot, 3 bedroom 3 bath masterpiece was fully reconfigured by renowned interior designer Ken Foreman who's been published in major interior design magazines for over 30 years. Known for his minimalist style and artistic sensibilities, Foreman integrated what was originally 2 apartments with utmost elegance and exceptional functionality. His thoughtful reconfiguration of the beams and walls resulted in a seamless integration. Reveals inserted under most of the walls created a unique floating effect to the various walls and divisions. Three separate entrances provide convenient access to different spaces. By opening up the spacious living room, dining room, den and kitchen, Foreman was able to capitalize on the brilliant eastern sunlight that now floods the apartment. Yet he also maintained private spaces that can be opened and closed by beautiful doors. The layout and ambience are conducive to contemporary ways of entertaining, highlighted by a gorgeous white fully-equipped Bulthaup kitchen designed for the discerning chef. With 2 bedrooms positioned upstairs, the residents can enjoy the similar allure of a private house, complemented by all the comforts of being in a doorman building. One of the sunny bedrooms downstairs also makes a perfect home office, as a large sliding door closes it off from the rest of the apartment for total privacy. A generously-sized laundry room is an ideal place for home organization. To this end, Foreman, who believes the secret of minimalism is to "be able to hide messes,? equipped the entire space with a multitude of deep closets.Live comfortably in the heart of the city, 5 minutes from Grand Central and Bryant Park, 12 minutes from Penn Station, near an ebullience of new restaurants, bakeries, design stores and more. The John Murray House is a sought-after 1940 prewar building on Madison Avenue in the heart of Manhattan, offering full-time doormen, an onsite garage, landscaped roof deck, central laundry, storage space in the basement, and bicycle storage. Pets are permitted.
