First purchased as new construction in 2010 and gently occupied as a pied-a-terre since then, this is the initial resale of this exquisite 3BR/3BTH -- or 2BR with gracious dining space that can be open or closed to the LR -- at The Laurel, a graceful, glass and Indiana limestone, LEED-certified residential tower designed by Costas Kondylis and Partners, LLP, and developed by the visionaries who first brought contemporary luxury to the far West Village with 165 Charles Street. This corner apartment, with 10 foot ceiling height and walls of oversized windows framing quintessential city and pocket park views to the North and West, is sun-struck and peaceful, while just minutes away from dining, entertainment and shopping on the in Midtown Manhattan and the Upper East Side. The appliance- rich kitchen boasts Poggenpohl frosted panel and white lacquer cabinets, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, Gaggenau convection and steam ovens, Gaggenau induction and natural gas cooktops, honed marble countertops, a back-painted white glass backsplash, and translucent glass gliding doors. The serene master bathroom has radiant-heated honed Bianco Sevic white marble mosaic floors, floor-to-ceiling honed Bianco Sevic white marble walls, a Zuma Collection tub, a separate walk-in rain shower, and a full-height mirrored closet for toiletries. The second bathroom, also en suite, features honed white marble slab floors and crystal glossy mosaic tile walls. A third full bathroom is a study in elegant, subtle color with natural quartz slab floors and crystal matte seafoam mosaic tile walls. The Laurel sets the standard for full-service in NYC, with a complete concierge, building and door staff, and over 11,000 square feet of amenities that offer a multitude of activities for all ages and interests. A bi-level fitness and triathlon training center, The Trophy Club, includes an Infiniti 50 foot lap pool with glass mosaic tile, state-of-the-art equipment and machines, and a sauna and steam room. For less active pursuits, The Laurel Club includes a double-height atrium lounge, screening room, dining/conference room, children's craft club house, game room with custom-designed foosball and pool tables, and arcade and computer cove. Additional amenities include on-site parking as well as bicycle, carriage and private storage.
