First Look: Inside a Gorgeous Gramercy Park Apartment Designed by Paris Forino and Listed for $6M
Oh, do we have a treat for you…Buckle up for the first look at a newly-listed Manhattan apartment designed by Paris Forino and staged by ASH NYC, a division of ASH. Located at 250 East 21st Street, a building that marries European charm and contemporary New York City sensibilities, this 11th-floor unit is a sight to behold and now seeking $5.995 million.
As with any home, it all starts with the exterior. And, this Gramercy Park structure has quite a presence. With architecture by Issac & Stern Architects, the building channels a romantic Parisian style, inspired by the subtle European flair of Gramercy Park and the surrounding Gramercy neighborhood. Walking past it, it’s easy to be in awe of the timeless hand-laid limestone facade that surrounds oversized windows, the striking Mansard crown, and customized decorative metal accents. Landscaped gardens also await inside. Needless to say, falling in love with the building isn’t difficult and neither is swooning over this 2,638-square-foot, four-bedroom refuge.
Forino, known for her tasteful use of color, took on the entire building’s interiors, giving it a delicate vibe that is different for new developments and impossible to ignore. The designer shares, “250 East 21st Street’s interiors embody a sense of grace and elegance. The palette is soft and light with a richness of detailing seldom seen in new developments. Wall paneling, deep cove modeling, leather-trimmed medicine cabinets, custom hardware and faucets are some of the distinctly crafted details that make these apartments unique.”
ᐧWithin 11B, in particular, you’ll find a slew of exciting finishes. Buyers can look forward to a large-scale chandelier by Roll & Hill, Serge Mouille sconces, hand-laid white oak herringbone wood floors, and custom wall paneling. Inspired by the setting, ASH Staging filled it with unique furnishings such as black and walnut nightstands by Kelly Wearstler.
Clean yet subtly brimming with character, Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes of Douglas Elliman hold the listing.
