Quality like this is rare, and is always a valuable choice. The owner of this supremely unique, beautiful, Museum Park-facing home is the very talented and established designer and owner of Kelly G Design (featured in House Beautiful magazine, NBC's Open House NYC Designer Living, Make the Most of Every Square Foot, and Salvage Secrets Design & Dcor - to name just a few shows and titles). Kelly's vision and her work have been celebrated and touted throughout the design world, and this supremely special residence - with two split-bedrooms -- is her latest heartfelt creation. This stupendous park-view home's soulful design and its ease of living stand out for all the right reasons. From the moment you step through the door, you'll know that you are in an exquisite residence. Dramatically situated on the prized treetop-view level of its 1905 building, this masterpiece boasts gorgeous, South-facing, sun-splashed, lush park views from every window. Although everything inside this feel-good home looks as if it has been here for a century or more, the architectural elements were individually curated by the designer specifically for this renovation. Repurposed treasures include antique doors and mantle, mirrors, hardware, and so much more. By mixing old and new, this magical space seamlessly merges history with modern sensibility. Enter the glamourous foyer -- with its custom, scalloped, pillow-cut marble floors, and crowned by its custom, scalloped plaster moldings - a handsome hall/gallery, with an outfitted closet, which gracefully ushers you to the living room and kitchen. The gorgeous kitchen is open to the inviting living room, boasts its signature custom circle millwork, and is perfectly poised for entertaining. Its painted, custom milled cabinetry conceals many of its appliances from view. (Try to find the top-tier appliances by Subzero, Miele and the new/coveted Big Chill range) The polished Calcutta Gold counters and backsplash offer the sophisticated look of a vintage butler's pantry, and beautifully serve this bespoke home's artisanal spirit. The park-view windows and the antique mantle with cast iron insert are the focal points of the sunny, comfortable living room - a vibrant space which, like the rest of this trophy home, boasts herringbone smoked oak floors and soaring ceilings featuring custom designed plaster moldings. Dramatically enhancing the light between the living room and the guest bedroom is a gorgeous custom wall of paned antique glass - a design marvel allowing even more soft Southern light to spill into both rooms, and giving the guest room even more flexibility. With a walk-in closet and dressing area, the guest room is a refined retreat quite separate from the master suite, and crowned with painted tin ceilings. The master bedroom suite makes every day feel like a vacation -- boasting more of those stunning park views, a generously scaled walk-in closet, and - like everything else in this designer dream home - beauty from every angle. Just like the one in the living room, the bedroom has its own tasteful flatscreen - a stylishly recessed TV with infrared sensor technology. The en suite windowed marble bathroom is a dream and a design/engineering marvel. To achieve a park view and Southern light in both the stupendous master bath and the neighboring guest bath, glass doors separate the custom tub and shower wet-zone from both separate baths. With their custom console sinks, their signature mosaic floor, and their thermostatic controls, these spa bathrooms, like the rest of this residence, come with bragging rights. This extraordinary smart home's lighting is controlled throughout by Lutron switches, its audio/visual by Niles smartpad, and its music is heard courtesy of a top-end, invisible speaker system. Supremely situated in a terrifically run, pet-friendly, full service building - The Galaxy - offering its residents one of our city's premiere planted roof deck's with five-star city and park views, and a perfect location right in front of beautiful Museum Park, this home is conveniently located on one of Manhattan's most celebrated blocks. Premiere shopping and dining destinations are at your doorstep, and easy transportation options abound. Indeed, quality like this is rare, and is always a valuable choice. Picture perfect, pristine, park-view living awaits.(HAPPY NOTE: In 2018, the Galaxy shareholders are scheduled to take ownership of their building's coveted commercial spaces - this should prove to be a financial windfall for the cooperative and its shareholders.)
