Sophisticated and sublime, this breathtaking corner residence has been impeccably renovated, making it the crown jewel of this highly desirable address. The welcoming entry gallery leads into an expansive living and dining room with 9'3" beamed ceilings. Sunlight pours in through floor-to-ceiling windows, offering dramatic, panoramic city views to the south and west. An open chef's kitchen has been tastefully appointed with white marble countertops and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.
The gracious master bedroom suite includes open views to the west, a walk-in closet, and an en-suite, five-fixture marble bathroom with a soaking tub, glass enclosed shower and double vanity. Three generously sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms are thoughtfully separated from the living space and master bedroom, and a fifth bedroom can easily be added. Additional apartment features include a powder room, a washer/dryer, abundant storage space, and an integrated audio system.
The Richmond is a full-service condominium with a 24-hour doorman and concierge, live-in resident manager, and a beautifully landscaped roof deck. 201 East 80th Street is situated in a fabulous Upper East Side location, close to public transportation, including the new Q line on Second Avenue, as well as some of the best shopping, dining, and museums in Manhattan.
This sprawling five bedroom, urban oasis is like a country home in the city. It has been the long-time residence of the world famous, witty, urbane journalist and publisher George Plimpton and his family, as well as the early office of The Paris Review. Rarely does a home so special come to market....
