Breathtaking from every angle, this meticulously designed two-bedroom, one-bathroom residence is the epitome of high-end style and effortless convenience in a full-service Sutton Place condominium.
Ebonized cerused white oak floors, sycamore wall treatments and soaring ceilings bordered by cove lighting create a dramatic first impression in this 790-square-foot showplace thoughtfully designed to create an ambiance of calm relaxation and harmony.
Throughout the residence, low-profile flat-front cabinetry accentuates the ultra-modern minimalist aesthetic. Foyer closets with hidden pulls are complemented by a custom-designed pull-down ceiling storage. Under-window cabinets artfully hide speakers, cooling and heating systems. With custom open lacquer shelving this space truly gives a gallery like feel.
The stunning living room is ideally suited to comfortable relaxation and lavish entertaining with its distinctive BoConcept sleeper sofa and sunny dining area outfitted with an expanding dining table that accommodates from 4 to 6 guests. A Samsung 60-inch TV lift converts the inviting bar seating to a home theater with the touch of a button.
In the breathtaking open kitchen, sleek sycamore and white lacquer motorized cupboards, pull-out trays and bins make cooking and cleanup a breeze. Motion-activated under-cabinet lighting and the butcher-block cutting board that opens to the trash receptacle below nod to the ingenious design found throughout the home. State-of-the-art integrated and stainless steel appliances include a Wolf range, Viking microwave and a Bosch dishwasher.
In the owner’s suite, zebrawood built-ins act as storage and a bold room divider, and a second TV lift reveals a 40-inch screen. The headboard conceals pull-out shoe storage while pull-down rods and glass drawer fronts provide the convenience you’d expect in the well-planned dressing room. Designer sconces, motion-sensor integrated lighting and a unique expanding chandelier provide exceptional illumination. Adjacent to the bedroom, you’ll find the same impeccable attention to detail thanks to a Kohler DTV digital dual-headed shower system, Toto toilet, infinity drain vanity, medicine cabinet with integrated LED lighting and magnification, and plenty of sycamore-trimmed storage.
Alongside the living area, pocket doors open to the second bedroom, which gracefully converts from luxe home office to sleeping quarters thanks to a custom Murphy bed and a reinforced fold-down desk. Red leather drawer pulls and Tapio Anttila’s Tuiki Pendant Lamp add a designer touch to the functional space.
This home’s extensive smart home features include premium A/V equipment with concealed wiring, wireless charging, Apple TV, surround sound and integrated speakers with Savant controls. A wireless digital entry lock welcomes you home while the Lutron system controls blackout window shades and all-LED lighting. Zoned audio and lighting allow you to set the perfect mood for any occasion in this unrivaled home.
