An exceptional, triple-mint 3 bedroom/3 bath residence at 15 West 81st Street with sunny southern views of the Museum of Natural History, Rose Planetarium, and Roosevelt Park. Nothing currently on the market can compare with this caliber of renovation. This grand-scale six-room was recently gut renovated and architecturally reimagined creating a perfect 3 bedroom 3 full bath home.
A gracious entrance gallery connects both primary living areas. To the south, you will find the grand scale living room featuring a working fireplace and 3 oversized windows with magical views of the Museum, Park, and Planetarium. The living room is large enough to accommodate multiple seating areas, a baby grand piano, and custom seating with hidden storage providing a front-row seat for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
The formal dining room is located on the opposite end of the gallery providing a generous space for both formal and casual dining. The kitchen is simply spectacular boasting two large windows with sunny courtyard views. Built by Bulthaup with no detail overlooked this wonderful eat-in features a sumptuous solid oak dining bar, signature Bulthaup cabinetry throughout with the best appliances including a six-burner Wolf range and hood, a SubZero fridge with additional beverage drawers, a large SubZero wine cooler, a Miele dishwasher, and a Miele combined convection microwave and a built-in Miele coffee machine for the barista in the household.
The large primary bedroom suite is nothing short of astonishing with sunny southern exposures and a dressing room that rivals anything you can find at a fashion house and a primary bath to rival any top spa. The large en-suite bath features a floor-to-ceiling Helsinki marble with a huge walk-in rain shower and storage galore created by a custom vanity with Dornbracht fixtures, sharp glass shelving, and topped off with a freestanding oversized deep soaking tub.
The large second bedroom is a quiet oasis for guests or family. The second full bath is both en-suite and accessible from the living space doubling as a powder room. This bath is adorned with floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble and the best finishes including Dornbracht fixtures.
The third bedroom is truly versatile providing the perfect den or media room, home office, guest room, or all of the above. Access this functional space from a separate bedroom wing hallway or through gorgeous custom solid wood and glass doors in the dining room. This room features large windows with quiet courtyard views and a beautifully renovated en-suite bath adorned with floor-to-ceiling Statuary marble and a large walk-in rain shower.
Other features of this masterpiece include architecturally designed ceilings and custom cabinetry throughout, central AC, new windows, perfectly scaled and placed recessed lighting, brand new solid wood herringbone floors, a vented washer/dryer, an integrated home automation system for lighting, video, and sound with central controls in every room, and an abundance of custom-fitted closet space.
