Sophistication and charm characterize this beautifully renovated four Bedroom plus Library, three Bath home with enchanting tree-filled views onto fabled West 67th Street. Upon entering Apartment 2AB, one is immediately captivated by the foyer's hand-painted Chagall-inspired ceiling. The foyer opens upon a wonderfully proportioned 27' living room centered around the original large wood burning fireplace and wide casement windows North onto the foliage and architecture of this landmark block. French doors connect a corner Library (this could just as easily be an elegant formal dining room) with exposures both North and West. The windowed kitchen also enjoys the charming perspective...onto 67th and is adjacent to a fourth bedroom/office. The flexibility is there should one wish to create a massive eat-in-kitchen. A third full bath is well positioned to function as the quest bath/powder room. The layout provides for a distinct separation between public and private spaces. One can expansively entertain while completely privatizing the entire bedroom wing. The master bedroom features its own wood-burning fireplace and elegant en-suite bath, outfitted with Calacatta marble and Grohe fixtures and radiant floor heating; the second and third bedrooms are delightful and well-appointed as well. They share a second bath, similarly outfitted. There are 10' ceilings throughout, gracious cove molding, a washer/dryer and ample closet space. The apartment transfers with two large private storage bins. 50 West 67th Street is a superbly run co-op with 24 hour doorman service, live-in super, porter, laundry, storage and bike rooms. Maid's rooms can also be leased for additional storage. Conceived in 1917 as a coop for a group of musicians, the walls were built with acoustic insulation and ample living rooms to accommodate grand pianos. The location, this block in particular, is understandably sought-after, historic and sublime. Residents truly feel at home immediately upon entering the handsome lobby and being greeted by the professional staff. Pets are welcome as is pied-a-terre ownership.
