The inventive reconfiguration and strictly "top drawer" renovation of this sun-filled two bedroom and two bathroom co-operative combines a mix of contemporary and vintage elements. With polished oak herringbone floors, absence of crown moldings, floor to ceiling paneled continental doors, and shiny nickel light fixtures, the retro glamour is balanced with a streamlined sense of modern luxe. The generously proportioned open layout features a dining area, entrance foyer opening to an oversized living room, secondary bedroom (currently used a home office), and primary bedroom with luxurious marble bath. Both bedrooms feature walk-in closets. The windowed kitchen has expansive marble counter space, high-end appliances, and abundant sleek cabinetry. With a wall of south facing windows as a dramatic backdrop and hints of classic Hollywood style, this sophisticated home is definitely ready for a "close-up". Located on a residential tree-lined block in the Sutton neighborhood, 440 East 56th Street is a full-service luxury cooperative. Built in the 1950's, the Sutton Manor amenities include a full-time doorman, resident manager, planted outdoor garden, central laundry area, bike room, and optional storage. The building allows up to 70% financing, pied-a-terre ownership, and pets are permitted.
