A bohemian two bedroom loft conversion on Madison Avenue in the heart of iconic Midtown. This quirky space in the eaves of a quintessential pre-war walk-up building has been creatively adapted into a playful and sociable home-from-home.
Baroque flourishes in the lounge room, in the form of a decorative fireplace and delicate mirror surrounds, add a touch of old-world charm. The full family kitchen has four-hob oven and a dining space with dining for up to six guests. The first floor, studio-style bedroom has a double bed and leads straight onto the lounge.
Ascend the bunk steps to the mezzanine floor and you’ll find yourself in the second bedroom with another double bed. This exquisitely situated apartment is within walking distance to many of New York’s greater and lesser known treasures. This truly unique property in a friendly building would be an ideal base from which to explore all that Midtown has to offer
An unparalleled location within walking distance of many of Manhattan’s most impressive architectural achievements.
The record breaking Chrysler and Empire State buildings are just a few blocks away. Both sparkling examples of the 1920’s art deco race towards the skies. The fey, whimsical Morgan Library and Museum are just across the street and it’s not to be missed. The oldest part, the original library is decorated with beautiful ornate balconies and enormous murals in earthy tones that will transport you to a bygone era. The soaring central court has the frivolous feel of an Italian piazza and the robust calendar of film, theatre and music attracts cultured locals all year round.
New York Public Library is also a stone’s throw with an extensive programme of family and children’s activities and clubs. Scandinavia House is temptingly close offering a rich programme of Scandi film, art and lectures as well as a delicious and affordable on-site restaurant preparing cured fish and meatballs.
This apartment is truly in the thick of it, exploring on foot here is a fascinating adventure.
