This enchanting, airy home in the sky was created through ingenious design and a no-expenses spared, total renovation, and made perfect by glorious views through a wall of windows and from the balcony. Lincoln Center is below, with the luxury high rise buildings of Lincoln Square as a backdrop. The Hudson River is visible for miles beyond the George Washington Bridge. Central Park and the Upper East Side skyline add color. The East River glimmers in the distance, and planes descend slowly toward La Guardia airport. There is sun in the morning, and reflected light from an immense expanse of open sky the rest of the day. At night, Lincoln Center sparkles in a sea of lights. The apartment has maple floors with a light charcoal stain. Both sides of the living space are lined with custom cabinets in natural maple, housing a washer/dryer and the kitchen on the left, and a Murphy bed and a wall unit on the right, with storage cabinets, pullout writing surfaces, TV, and book shelves. The appliances are top-of-the-line: Bosch washer and dryer, Liebherr refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Wolf cook top, and Sharp microwave convection oven that also bakes and broils. There is a fabulous, wall filling closet The two HVAC units have custom maple covers. The counter top and the wide window sills are white engineered stone. The shiny white tile bath has Grohe fixtures. SORRY, NO SMOKING, NO PETS. Designer studio high in the sky!
