With its over 10-foot, coffered and beamed ceilings, crown molding and blond wood, wide-plank, herringbone flooring, Residence 1817 echoes the fine details of Essex House, originally completed in 1931 in the Art Deco style. This spacious one-bedroom, one and a a half-bath home offers both space for two separate home offices by day and comfortable and quiet areas in which to rest and to relax by night. Tall, northwest-facing windows overlook a classic New York City view with architectural styles both classic and contemporary. From the entry foyer through to the open-plan living and dining room, Residence 1817 enjoys gracious...proportions and ample light. The European-style kitchen features a full-size, stainless steel Sub-Zero refrigerator with ice maker, a Gaggenau two-burner induction cooktop, a GE Profile convection and microwave oven, a deep, undermount sink, a marble countertop, wood-and-frosted-glass cabinetry and under-cabinet lighting. The private bedroom suite can easily fit a king or a California king bed and has a high coffered and beamed ceiling, recessed lighting and two large closets with built-in shelving. The marble bathroom with dual sinks, medicine cabinets and vanities features a Zuma soaking tub and Duravit and Waterworks fixtures. Just opposite the foyer is a powder room, a Bosch washer and dryer, and a large walk-in closet with marble tile flooring, which can be locked to store a seasonal wardrobe or other possessions when traveling or leasing out the residence. Most utilities are included in the monthly common charges. Owners and residents experience the luxury of the grand Art Deco lobby, the fitness center with Technogym equipment, Peleton, sauna and steam, bell service around the clock, valet and housekeeping services upon request and the attentive staff of the Essex House hotel. With its iconic six-story red sign and just across the street from Central Park, Essex House is surrounded by the cultural destinations of MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), the Museum of Arts and Design and Carnegie Hall and by boutique shopping along Madison Avenue and at Columbus Circle. From Michelin-starred dining at Masa, Marea and Aquavit to local favorites Zibetto Espresso Bar, Petrossian, Quality Meats and Venchi Chocolate and Gelato, the neighborhood offers abundant outdoor dining, takeaway and delivery choices. Whole Foods and the 57th Street Greenmarket on Wednesdays and Saturdays source fresh, organic and seasonal produce. Essex House is served by the 1, A, B, C, D, E, F, M, N, Q, R and W trains.
