Fabulous opportunity to have a sprawling (approximately 4200 sq. ft.) home in a top luxury cooperative. With a little TLC, the fine details, including herringbone oak floors and gorgeous crown molding will come alive again. A grand gallery with a marble floor opens to a double width living room, with a balcony, and a formal dining room. The large windowed kitchen has a WASHER AND DRYER, and there is a staff room and full bath. The master suite faces south and west and includes a dressing room, massive closet space and his and hers baths. In a separate wing, there are two additional bedrooms with ensuite baths, a home office and a huge library/media room with spectacular East River views. There is additional storage, an area set up for exercise and yoga and an exquisite powder room. This home has a private landing, 9 ft. ceilings and a flexible floor plan that could easily accommodate additional bedrooms.
When The Sovereign was built in 1974, Paul Goldberger of The New York Times noted, "The Sovereign is in the super luxury category." The Emery Roth designed building has a lobby that "extends under the entire building, and there are four semiprivate halls per floor - a welcome (and expensive) alternative to the long, double loaded corridor. Such an arrangement has probably not been used in any New York building since the nineteen-thirties."
Then as now, the residents are treated to impeccable world class service is provided by the staff that includes sentry, doorman, concierge, on-site management, valet parking in the 24 hr. garage equipped with Tesla charges. This mid-century building has an elegant lobby distinguished by Carlo Scarpa designed Venini chandeliers and rosewood paneling.
There is a lobby level state of the art windowed gym, manicured gardens surround the building, and up to two dogs are permitted. Pied a Terre, Trusts and LLC purchase are permitted with Board Approval. Please call for an appointment and do not miss this opportunity!
