Truly a home in the grand style!. Magnificent in its own right, the entry gallery welcomes you. Centrally located in the home, it leads you to all the other rooms in the house. The large corner living room has tremendous light with open views to the east, and a working WBF. So large is this room that you don't immediately notice the stunning Steinway Grand piano at the far end. The dramatic living and adjoining dining rooms flow into each other, although can be closed off if desired. The dramatic formal dining room has east and south windows, and leads into the open windowed kitchen. Across from the kitchen is a lovely private dining room, for breakfast or where to take your meals when not in the formal dining room, essentially transforming it into a very elegant eat-in kitchen.Three very large bedrooms two of which can be used as master suites, one being used as a den - the "Red Room" - all with en-suite bathrooms. The very large current master suite has 2 bathrooms and a WD, built in custom closets, and an eastern exposure bringing in the morning light. All three rooms are big enough for a bed and seating area with sofa and chairs. The "Red Room" is a special experience itself! And there are plenty of closets, several of which are walk-ins.There is a home office with a wet bar and a window looking into the interior atrium. And the apartment comes with two storage rooms in the basement.Throughout the home, you will see the custom "graining" of the walls and doors - large trompe l'oeil "stone block masonry" in the foyer and bathroom, all the doors imitating an original wood grain. The work has been done by the Robson Family, 5 generations of artists decorating the likes of Buckingham Palace and the US Capitol, among many other estates, castles, and private and public spaces. This amazing location is 1/2 block to Carnegie Hall; 10 blocks to Theater District; 9 blocks to Lincoln Center; and 1 block to Central Park, Broadway, and Columbus Circle. With public transportation in every direction. The area - and Alwyn Court - were highlighted in a recent New York Times article (see link below). The Alwyn Court is pet- friendly with a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, very accommodating support staff, storage bins & bike room. Pied-a-Terre and foreign buyers are permitted. Flexible showing times. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/09/realestate/midtown-manhattan-new-amenities-and-high-rises-attract-residents.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Frealestate&action=click&contentCollection=realestate®ion=rank&module=package&version=highlights&contentPlacement=12&pgtype=sectionfrontz
