A complete structural and museum-quality renovation brings this majestic residence back to its original grandeur. Once comprised of two separate apartments, 2LM features 6 bedrooms (possible 7), 6 full baths, and 2 half baths, and boasts nearly 12-foot ceilings and 6,110 square feet of palatial living space, blending modern conveniences with timeless prewar elegance.
An elegant entry vestibule accented by an expertly restored mosaic tile floor, leads into a parlor reception room with Chesneys fireplace. Beyond, a baronial living/dining room, measuring almost 34 feet in length, boasts 4 oversized windows, bespoke cabinetry with an integrated back-lit bar, and two built-in buffets finished in Quartz.
The windowed Christopher Peacock-designed chef's kitchen, spans more than 25 feet in length and features solid honey oak and black lacquer cabinetry, quartz countertops, radiant heat mosaic floors as well as duplicate appliances by Viking, Wolf, Sub Zero and Miele. An adjoining breakfast room and den with a third Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer and separate full-size wine refrigerator serves as an ideal setting for informal dining and gatherings. A stately Mahogany-paneled library with Chesneys fireplace completes the home's generous offering of entertaining spaces.
Privately located within the south wing of the apartment, the master bedroom features a Chesneys marble fireplace and overlooks the Apthorp's European-inspired landscaped courtyard. Two en-suite windowed bathrooms feature an extra-deep soaking tub, oversized glass-enclosed rain shower, and radiant heat Waterworks mosaic floors. Three enormous walk-in closets, a midnight bar with mini-fridge and sink, and a separate en-suite windowed sitting room/home office comprise the suite.
The separate junior bedroom wing has two entries as well as an interior door that when closed provide additional privacy and noise insulation. Each generously sized bedroom offers large windows, an en-suite marble bathroom with radiant heat floors as well as custom closets.
Other notable features include a laundry/utility room with service stair and elevator, a Crestron Home Automation System controlling lighting, motorized shades, HVAC, streaming music, surveillance video and security alarm. Brand-new sound-proof windows, plumbing, electrical, structural steel, concrete slab and hidden stereo speakers in the acoustically-fortified walls and ceilings were incorporated in the renovation, which was designed and overseen by Elias Associates, a New York City Design firm that extended all their expertise and years of professional experience to create this residential masterpiece with painstaking detail. An expert in The Apthorp, and specializing in historic renovation, Fernando Papale of BP Architects, PC, served as architect.
One of few buildings in NYC to comprise an entire city block, The Apthorp is a full-service prewar condominium, built in 1908 and designed by architects Clinton and Russel as a commission for William Waldorf Astor. Added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1978, and redesigned as a luxury condominium in 2008, the Italian Renaissance Revival-style building boasts a lushly landscaped courtyard/porte-cochere manned by a 24-hour guardhouse; a private and quiet driveway for loading, unloading and temporary parking; live-in resident manager; a 6,500sf fitness facility with sauna/steam, yoga studio, and treatment suites; entertainment suite with bar, catering kitchen, and billiards; a children's playroom; bike storage; and an on-site garage.
