This $4.3M Apartment at The Apthorp Shows Off Stately NYC Living
Enter through the iconic iron gates, pass the beautifully landscaped private courtyard, through the meticulously restored lobby, and up to an apartment that is waiting for someone to inhabit its impressive rooms. Old World glamour is a given at The Apthorp, so this $4.295 million apartment promises stately NYC living.
The gracious 2,370-square-foot residence has 11-foot ceilings and can easily become a three-bedroom, two-bath home. It boasts a palatial living room, fabulous master suite, spacious second bedroom and enormous windowed eat-in kitchen that all exude grandeur. Best of all, the turn of the century details are still stunning, starting with a square foyer with terrazzo floor and continuing with moldings, moldings, and more moldings. Carved and ornate, they are works of art.
Living in The Apthorp is highly-desirable, even drawing in celebrities like Jennifer Hudson. Designed by architects Clinton and Russell for William Waldorf Astor, the style is Italian Renaissance Revival, thought to be modeled after the Pitti Palace in Florence. Truly one of the most magnificent buildings in the city, The Apthorp was designated a New York City landmark in 1969, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
The building’s 6,500-square-foot amenity suite includes a private spa and fitness center, entertainment suite with bar, catering kitchen, integrated media and billiards, playroom and craft center, and individual storage units.
