Designed by an Italian architect, this dramatic Classic 7 home has been converted to an enormous 2 Bedroom, 3 bath home with a double size living room, formal dining room and a huge stainless steel chef's kitchen, balcony and breathtaking river views from every room. No expense was spared in creating this masterpiece for opulent living. The floors are inlaid marble, the walls are a combination of carved wood and stone and the ceilings are Venetian plaster. The windowed kitchen is fit for a pro with a 36" Subzero refrigerator plus a 36" freezer, a 60" Wolf stove with a grill and two ovens, plus an additional convection wall oven. There is also a washer and dryer. The large corner master suite has a windowed dressing room with a huge closet, a spacious windowed bath with a walk in shower - all with sweeping river views. Perhaps the most enviable views are in the second master suite with corner windows facing south and east over the east river. When The Sovereign was built in 1974, Paul Goldberger of The New York Times noted, "The Sovereign is in the super luxury category." The Emery Roth designed building has a lobby that "extends under the entire building, and there are four semiprivate halls per floor - a welcome (and expensive) alternative to the long, double loaded corridor. Such an arrangement has probably not been used in any New York building since the nineteen-thirties." Then as now, the residents are treated to impeccable world class service is provided by the staff that includes sentry, doorman, concierge, on-site management, valet parking in the 24 hr. garage equipped with Tesla charges. This mid-century building has an elegant lobby distinguished by Carlo Scarpa designed Venini chandeliers and rosewood paneling. There is a lobby level state of the art windowed gym, manicured gardens surround the building, and up to two dogs are permitted.
