Space abounds in this beautiful residence located in New York City's best kept secret: The Sovereign in Sutton Place.
The Sovereign is known for its large apartments, 9' ceilings, semi-private landings, white-glove service, complete set of amenities and its central location. With 1800 square feet generously apportioned among the two bedrooms + two and a half bathrooms + home office, Residence 17C is no exception.
As you arrive on the 17th floor, the elevator opens into a semi-private landing that has been tastefully remodeled. The spacious foyer serves as a gateway to one of the most expansive living rooms in the neighborhood, with a gorgeous 24' run of the NEW TILT & TURN WINDOWS flooding the apartment with natural light. The exposures from the living room and dining room are south and west.
Whether it's dinner for one or two, or if you're hosting a large gathering, 17C has ample space in this custom-built kitchen. Rutt cabinetry and high-end appliances will delight your innermost chef's desires and inspire you to create some wonderful dishes. Adjacent to the large kitchen galley is a room with a washer and dryer.
Of great use in today's work-from-home era: a large home office that can accommodate a comfortable working set-up. It is conveniently located right across the hallway to the powder room.
The primary bedroom offers a sanctuary feeling with a large walk-in closet, additional closets and a hotel-style primary bath with a custom vanity. The second bedroom has an en-suite bath, generous closets and magnificent custom built-in cabinetry. An additional bonus is a hidden SubZero beverage refrigerator within the cabinetry.
Apartment 17C features wood floors throughout the bedrooms, the living and dining areas, and electric shades in every room. It is prewired for audio and sound with built-in speakers.
Designed by acclaimed architect Emery Roth, The Sovereign is a 47-story, luxury full-service co-op located in coveted Sutton Place. Maintenance includes gas, water, heating, and air conditioning making for a very low monthly electric bill. Pet friendly and Pied-a-terre welcome. Building allows 65% financing and a 2% flip tax is equally shared between buyer and seller. White-glove services and amenities include the following: 24-hour doormen, porters, and concierge staff; parking valet service; renovated state-of-the-art fitness center; landscaped private garden; and private storage (space permitting).
Tucked away in the serenity of Sutton Place, the Sovereign also enjoys the convenience of being a short distance away from the center of Manhattan. Just outside you'll find the newly minted Trader Joe's on the corner of 59th, or go two blocks southwest to the Wholefoods or Morton Williams both on 57th street. Fine dining in the area includes Mr. Chow, Sushi Seki, BLT Steak, Wolfgang's Steakhouse or for some of the best neighborhood pizza, Brooklyn Pizza Masters. And of course, what better way to work off all that great epicurean delight in the neighborhood than a nice game of tennis at The Sutton East Tennis Club around the corner.
