Extensively soundproofed, this corner apartment has outward facing windows in every room with city and park views.

The foyer features a silver-leafed domed ceiling complemented by a custom-fabricated uplight. The living room exudes classical charm with its herringbone floors, wood-burning fireplace, and western views overlooking Madison Avenue. Adjacent to the living room, is a versatile den/media area that can be easily converted into a third bedroom using the sliding lacquered wood door panels with stainless steel inlays and the sofa bed. Drawing inspiration from the cabins of sailboats and trains, the den showcases exquisite craftsmanship in its shop-finished lacquered sapele mahogany wood paneling and custom closets. The day bed sofa converts into a full queen-sized bed with a simple pull on the customized hydraulic hidden mattress. Additionally, the den offers a customized pull-out desk, perfect for office work when needed. The original layout with the bathroom intact can be seamlessly restored.
