Prewar Elegance Meets Modern Convenience! Having recently undergone a meticulous renovation--including the addition of central A/C for complete year-round climate control--this one-of-a-kind residence is the product of a perfectly conceived two-unit combination. With high-floor open city views and triple exposures-the primary being south-every room is both quiet and flooded with sunlight! The home boasts 10-foot beamed ceilings, a grand living room, a formal dining room with dedicated bar and Perlick wine refrigerator, three large bedrooms, three luxurious spa-caliber bathrooms, a windowed eat-in kitchen, a custom-designed home office with in-office refrigerator, tremendous closet space, high-grade windows, immaculate strip hardwood floors, and elegant recessed lighting! The chef's kitchen has been completely redone with all new cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, dedicated windowed seating area anchored by a built-in bench, and top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf range, Zephyr ventilation hood, Thermador Professional double oven, bread warming and proving drawer, Miele dishwasher, and high-capacity double-door Sub-Zero! The home also transfers with a private basement storage unit. Built in 1932, 2 Beekman Place is a Rosario Candela-designed white-glove cooperative. Residents enjoy 24-hour doorman, elevator operator, resident manager, beautiful Art Deco lobby, private storage, bike storage, renovated laundry facility, building-wide Culligan water filtration system, bulk-billing reduced rates for both electricity and cable/internet service, and a landscaped, furnished roof deck with gorgeous river and city views and complimentary WiFi. Pets are permitted, as is up to 50% financing. Beginning on 49th Street and terminating on 51st Street, the coveted Beekman Place enclave is a serene, tree-lined stretch of stately prewar buildings, making one feel completely removed from the frenetic energy of the city, yet placing one within short walking distance of every residential convenience. Transportation is a breeze with the 6 train at 51st and Lex, the E/M trains at 53rd and Third, and the M50 crosstown bus on 50th. Beekman Place has long been synonymous with old money and has been home to multiple members of the Rockefeller family as well as Huntington Hartford, heir to the A&P supermarket fortune. Additional famous residents of the neighborhood include Gloria Vanderbilt, Irving Berlin, Greta Garbo, Ethel Barrymore, Anne Morgan, Elisabeth Marbury, Rex Harrison, Katherine Cornell, Van Santvoord Merle-Smith, William S. Paley, Alfred Lunt, Lynne Fontanne, Mary McCarthy, John P. Marquand, Paul Jones, and modernist architect Paul Rudolph.
