With pride of place inside a beautifully maintained, privately owned boutique brownstone building in Midtown East, this elegant apartment is within walking distance to some of Manhattans iconic hotspots.
Enter straight into the entrance hall with hat and coat stand and through to the open-plan kitchen and diner. A modern suite with bright units and a table for four guests to dine makes this a lovely room to gather and dine. This room opens up again onto the elegant living room. A gorgeous room with chic armchair, deep cosy sofa that unfolds into a double sofa-bed against a feature wall, contemporary Perspex coffee table and stylish reading lamp. The two big South-facing windows offer Manhattan cityscapes while allowing natural light to pour into the room all day long.
The first bedroom has a full wall of closet space, plus a walk-in wardrobe (perfect for dropping the suitcases). It has an inviting double bed with matching bedside tables and reading lamps, and a huge mirror. The second bedroom is bright and stylish with a queen size bed and matching side tables and lamps. There is one high-spec bathroom in perfect keeping with the rest of the apartment.
This part of the Upper East Side is dotted with retro cafes and hipster bars meaning there is no need to board the Subway before grabbing your first coffee of the day. You’ll be able to stroll around the affluent Lennox Hill area, admiring the Victorian Townhouses in awe and envy. Several superb restaurants in the area are tempting too, and a visit for brunch will not break the bank.
Upscale boutiques and galleries abound. As well as the celebrated Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, don’t miss The Frick Collection; just off of 5th Avenue hiding on 70th Street it is home to the works of the world’s greatest European artists. The fascinating Whitney Museum on 75th Street and Madison Avenue is a celebration of contemporary American art with a particular focus on living artists.
The area’s foodie scene doesn’t seem to be slowing with world-class fine-dining options as well as more casual affairs each bursting with personality. Head West to Hell’s Kitchen for trendy watering holes and contemporary global menus.
