This grand, classic corner 7.5-room home at the Stanton is a fine example of 1920s Pre-War architecture with a gracious and flowing layout that offers a perfect balance for both entertaining and living. The elegant plan includes a formal living room, formal dining room, windowed eat-in kitchen with butler’s pantry, three very spacious bedrooms, an oversized staff room, three full baths, and an enormous entry foyer/receiving room. Additionally, the staff room is a generous space and can easily serve as a fourth bedroom. The original architects designed the floor plan with all rooms radiating from the grand central foyer, creating two separate wings, one for formal entertaining and the other for living quarters, affording added privacy. Three very large, well-proportioned bedrooms and two full baths are located in the private residence wing. The corner master suite is incredibly generous in scale and offers two sunny exposures, 4 oversized windows, full bath en suite and huge walk-in closet custom fitted by California Closets. Overall, the apartment boasts superb closet space. The scale throughout is all the more impressive due to four sunny exposures (east, north, south and west), oversized windows in every room and nearly 10’ high-beamed ceilings. Lovingly maintained, this gracious home boasts original old-world detail that includes restored molding through out, refinished herringbone/hardwood floors, original hardware and French doors. A very rare find and integral to the pre-war character, this apartment has original oversized windows that were restored from the inside out, all with original brass pulls, weights and chains, providing the apartment with beautiful natural light throughout the day.
