221 West 77th Street, Apt 5-E
One of the first resales in what was arguably the Upper West Side's most successful boutique new development of the past 3 years is ready for its new owner. In a building designed by renowned Thomas Juul-Hansen and a home designed by Sasha Bikoff, apartment 5E is an expansive and thoughtful three-bedroom, three and a half bathroom. It has all of the modern outfittings of the brand new building and the exquisite charm of a Parisian escape.
A private elevator opens directly into the apartment, and the moment you enter the home you know you are somewhere special. One of Manhattan's top interior decorators has boldly designed the space to perfection. There is a gracious entry foyer that welcomes you to the front of the house, which features a secondary bedroom with a full private bath and the grand living/dining area with a top of the line kitchen. Both of the front rooms feature large beautiful casement windows with Juliet balconies facing south over 77th Street allowing in beautiful natural light, made to feel even brighter by the light oak flooring throughout.
The hand-painted walnut kitchen was designed by Smallbone of Devizes, known for the highest quality cabinetry on the market. The state of the art Miele appliances (refrigerators, freezers, gas oven with 6 burner range and stainless hood, speed oven/microwave, steam oven, dishwashers, and wine refrigerators) are complemented by Pietra Cardosa counter and backsplash and a marble island with walnut legs.
The long hallway to the back of the home features ample storage, a laundry room, and a beautiful powder room for guests. In the back of the home, there is another large secondary bedroom with a full private bathroom before entering that grand primary suite.
The primary bedroom has been upgraded to feature two fully outfitted walk-in closets with custom built-ins and doors. There is a stunning marble 5 fixture master bathroom with top of the line waterworks fixtures and luxurious heated floors.
Additional upgrades for 5E include Lutron systems throughout. The living room is wired for surround sound, and all windows are wired for electric shades. The custom wallpaper throughout the home can stay for the next buyer, and the sale includes two large storage cages in the basement (usually sold separately). There are also parking spaces available for purchase in the building.
The amenities at 221 West 77 are second to none. A spacious landscaped roof-deck offers comfortable seating around a gas fire pit. An outdoor grill and banquettes for dining provide an idyllic spot for sunset cocktails or al fresco meals. A paneled billiards room is a fabulous place to entertain friends while feeling like you live in a boutique hotel. Thanks to a state-of-the-art gym, health and wellness are integral parts of the lifestyle at 221 West 77. The building's basketball court will be adored by all. It can also be used for tennis or practicing yoga. With close proximity to Central Park, shopping, dining, and public transportation, this home is the one you've been waiting for.
