New Year, New Price -- $150,000 Price Reduction Uptown meets Downtown in this artfully designed 2 Bedroom loft-like space in the legendary Hotel des Artistes. The dramatic 26’ long living room with its soaring 18’ ceiling and 16’ windows provides abundant space for gracious entertaining, including room for a concert grand piano – the current owner hosts intimate concerts in keeping with the Hotel des Artistes’ tradition of salon entertaining of fellow artists, musicians, poets and playwrights. A stunning wall of built-ins with a Zen garden of candles and plants flanks the western end of the living room and the separate dining room, which is a few steps down from the living room. A windowed L-shaped kitchen and a half-bath complete the first floor. Up the floating staircase is a library/office with a built-in desk; this space is sometimes used as a mezzanine for viewing the performances below. Also on this upper level, the serene master bedroom features a luxurious spa-like ensuite bath, with an oversized “tea-for-two” tub. And a second bedroom has its own bath across the hall, where there is also the washer/dryer. This home features hardwood and slate floors, beautiful custom cabinetry, striking recessed lighting, and access to the building’s elevators from both floors. Hotel des Artistes is a full-service luxury building with a 24-hour elevator operator and concierge and amenities not often seen in prewar buildings: a swimming pool, roof garden, two workout rooms and a squash/basketball court. Residents are also afforded discounted dining as well as room service from the Leopard at the des Artistes. This pre-war cooperative is located on historic West 67 Street, one of the most sought after blocks on the West Side, close to Lincoln Center and Central Park. West 67th Street is known as “Artists’ Row,” in recognition of the double height studio apartments on the block that have over the years housed many artists, writers and musicians.
