Beautiful, rarely available 2,500-square foot three-bedroom/three-and-a-half bathroom home with southern, western, and eastern exposures in The Marquand, located perfectly on East 68th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues.
A private elevator opens to an elegant, wood-paneled gallery, which leads to an enormous corner living and dining room, with southern and eastern views through large bay windows. This great room has 10-foot ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace with a travertine mantel. It connects to the large chef's kitchen. Both the gallery and great room have exceptional herringbone parquet hardwood floors.
The large chef's kitchen has three large east-facing windows, a central island, and abundant cabinetry and counter space on three sides. The island is large enough for both food preparation and stool seating, and it has a wine refrigerator built in. The timeless white wooden cabinetry was designed by Bulthaup, and the stainless steel appliances are by Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Gaggenau.
The primary bedroom suite is a particular highlight, with its own wood-burning fireplace and a tranquil, southern exposure onto East 68th Street, along with a west-facing window overlooking The Marquand's own courtyard entryway. Two large closets are within the bedroom itself, and the suite's internal hallway leads to both the windowed en-suite bathroom and a nearly-room-size, windowed walk-in closet. The primary bathroom has dual sinks and a soaking tub with standing shower. It features marble countertops and elegant tiling.
The second and third bedrooms are well-proportioned and bright, each with their own en-suite bathrooms and ample closet space. A powder room completes the home, along with two accessory closets and a side-by-side washer and dryer in their own closet. Handsome hardwood floors and high ceilings feature throughout, and their is multi-zone central air conditioning.
