A superior one bedroom renovation in an outstandingly central location. Murray Hill named after the Irish Murray family who made this plot their home in the 18th century, is a neighbourhood full of fascinating idiosyncrasies. Framed by some of Manhattan’s most photographed highlights, Murray Hill is both within and without. Within the electric buzz of Midtown Manhattan but without the swarms of SLR cameras around necks of insatiable tourists.
This thoroughly modern Murray Hill apartment is finished to a top quality specification. The sleek, masculine kitchen boasts all mod cons and opens onto a dining room with dining for four guests. The comfortable living room features a double sofa-bed, sleeping four comfortably overall. The bright white bathroom suite is crisp and intuitive.
The spacious double bedroom features a full wall of mirrored wardrobes and two floor length windows flooding the room with light. Ceiling spotlights and warm wheaty wooden floors throughout, softly finish every room.
Murray Hill is a relaxed, slower-paced part of town that is miraculously serene despite its proximity to kinetic Midtown. Here you can enjoy tranquil views and a cooling breeze from across the working East River, overlooked by the dominant peak of the Empire State Building.
The popularity of the area has soared since the early nineties and today it’s home to a diverse population of young professionals, families and Murray Hill veterans. This eclectic populace has encouraged the development of a truly diverse cultural offering. Scandinavia House is a cultural hot spot offering rich programmes of Scandi films and concerts as well as an in-house speciality restaurant offering gravalaks and meatballs.
What began as a private collection in the late 19th century; the Morgan Library and Museum is a stunning complex of elegant and majestic spaces designed to sensitively display a lifetime of collecting. Transformed into a public institution in 1924 by the Morgan family, this is one of the most momentous cultural gifts in U.S. history.
The titillating cacophony of Murray Hill’s nightlife and foodie scene will satiate any discerning night owl.
