Stunning, Rarely Available Duplex Residence
The entry gallery of this bright high floor home opens into a breathtaking living room with dramatic double height ceilings and open skyline views through oversized windows. Off the gallery is a lovely formal dining room and a spacious modern chef's kitchen.
On the upper level a stately library/home office overlooks the living room. Two large bedrooms receive brilliant light and have en-suite bathrooms. The corner master suite with a large walk-in closet and a wood burning fireplace has double exposures to the south and east. A second corner bedroom suite enjoys double exposures to the south and west. In addition, there is a guest powder room and a laundry room. Fine features include gorgeous marble floors, crown molding, beamed ceilings and detailed wood paneling.
Originally designed as artists' studios, in 1929, the building is among the very few in NYC with soaring double height living room ceilings. Throughout its history, 322 East 57th Street has been known as home to prominent designers, architects, artists, and literary figures. Designed by architect Harry M. Clawson of Caughey and Evans, it is widely admired architecturally and is one of the most unique and welcoming cooperatives in Manhattan. It is a short walk to midtown theater, shopping and restaurants.
