Located on one of the most idyllic blocks in Manhattan, 447 East 57 Street in Sutton Place epitomizes prewar luxury. The full-service co-op was designed by the visionary Rosario Candela. The home's design showcases many of the details and accents for which Candela was known, including stunning millwork and crown moldings. It is accessed by a semi-private elevator that opens to a rectangular entrance foyer. The over 26' living space beyond the foyer is illuminated by three oversized, double-hung windows overlooking 57th Street. The space is large enough to accommodate both a living and dining area. A chef's dream, the home's recently upgraded chef's kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, including Wolf wall ovens and a cooktop, a Miele dishwasher, and a Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler. The 17'9" x 16'9" primary bedroom features abundant closet space and a newly renovated ensuite marble bath. The second bedroom (or library) features two oversized windows and an ensuite windowed bath. Just beyond the kitchen, a third room with a half bath can be used as a third bedroom, a home office, or a staff room. Additional highlights include abundant storage throughout, two-zone central air conditioning, wiring for sound systems, and herringbone hardwood floors. Rosario Candela, one of New York's most famous architects, was best known for designing many of the city's buildings of splendor in the 1920s and 1930s with grand rooms of brilliant scale and proportions. This particular building was built in 1928. It is a handsome prewar structure with a canopied entrance. Standing 15 stories, it is finished in red brick with a two-story marble base. Its exterior is replete with wrought iron details, distinctive lanterns, and sidewalk plantings. The residence is situated within blocks from the finest shopping, dining, and cultural destinations Midtown has to offer. It also offers ease of access to FDR Drive and Sutton Place Park, an enchanting, pet-friendly park fronting the East River. A generously sized storage bin transfers with the apartment. Pets and pied--terres are welcome. The 2% flip tax is payable by the Seller and 50% financing is permitted.
