With light, views and style beyond measure, this outrageously gorgeous, nearly 3,600 square foot 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom triplex, is perched high in the sky over Manhattan's chic Midtown East. The immaculate 21st Century environment features a lofted zen-like living room with honed black granite wood burning fireplace flowing seamlessly into the glass enclosed dining room, overlooking The East River and the Gotham city lights. The adjacent wet bar features a light-up onyx stone surface for the most glamorous mixology imaginable. Unique touches such as Russian wide plank oak floors, custom architectural lighting and Savant sound and television system, and Nest controlled systems, ratchet up the wow. Fully triple mint, the most spectacular 33 foot long Italian Boffi kitchen with seamless white Corian counter tops and a giant eat-in island features huge views through large plate glass picture windows, facing North and West. Double your pleasure with two of every top-of-the-line appliance -- made to order for large gatherings. Miele and Gaggenau are the stars here with every bell and whistle, including a 70 bottle wine refrigerator, freezer drawers and integrated espresso/cappuccino maker.
Tucked away for privacy, the master bedroom is a spa-like retreat with endlessly clever custom closetry, to-die-for Western City views and an only-in-New York bathroom, featuring Boffi high end Winged Collection fixtures, walk-in steam shower for two, elegant free standing tub, double marble vanities with floating oval medicine cabinets, separate water closet, heated floors, and a huge glass walled television for movie nights or morning news. A secondary bedroom on the main floor allows for flexible use as a staff room, home office or guest accommodation with an elegant full bath with heated floor, doubling as a powder room. The sculptural Guggenheim-inspired staircase takes you down to two additional bedrooms with Eastern morning sunshine and views, one with its own private balcony. This floor enjoys a separate entry and a generous laundry closet with full sized washer and dryer. A decadent two person Swedish sauna sits next to a serene white marble and mosaic bathroom with double sinks, jacuzzi bathtub, separate stall shower and heated floor.
The views from the heavenly 1,620 square foot rooftop stretch as far as the eye can see toward the Empire and Chrysler Buildings and over The East River. From there, enjoy luxury appointments such as integrated sound and lighting systems, outdoor kitchen and bar, and room for dining and lounging in a private oasis.
Every inch of this perfect apartment has been designed with ultimate luxury in mind. 21st Century style, open loft- like living, gracious modern entertaining space, heavenly views, space and light. Property can be purchased fully furnished. 255 East 49th Street is a full service 24 hour doorman building with storage and laundry room.
