STEP BACK IN TIME to a bygone era when you enter this striking, 8-Room home at the Saxony, Emory Roth's first residential building constructed at the turn of the century. This grand, 4-Bedroom, convertible 5-bedroom, 3-Bath home has been lovingly maintained by the same family for nearly four decades and is truly an architectural work of art. The gracious layout unfolds beyond the formal entry foyer, which leads to the front entertaining rooms to the right and a long gallery leading to the private, bedroom wing to the left. The high ceilings are punctuated by elegant plaster moldings, beautifully carved classical columns, and stunning woodwork.
With a sophisticated layout, this prewar home was designed with two formal parlors or sitting rooms and an expansive formal dining room off of the entry foyer, facing across West 82nd Street. These rooms are exceptional examples of the opulent design that makes the Saxony such a special residential building on the Upper West Side. Currently used as a living room, the original formal dining room showcases exquisite woodwork with paneled walls and coffered ceilings. The beautiful woodwork is in excellent condition; there is no need to strip away layers of decades-old paint in this carefully preserved home. You will also find hardwood floors throughout, including herringbone floors in the front formal rooms and three decorative fireplaces. The windowed galley kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and a pass-through to a charming breakfast room. There is also a washer and dryer in the kitchen.
A long gallery leads to 4 well-proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom features an enormous walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. All bedrooms have thru-wall air conditioners and the building also permits central air, with board approval.
The Saxony is a well-run boutique cooperative with low maintenance and features a part-time doorman, full-time porter, excellent live-in superintendent, landscaped roof deck, gym, private storage and a bike room. Residents love the convenience to Riverside Park and Central Park, public transportation, and the many neighborhood amenities just moments away. Pets are welcome!
