Residence 12A, a beautiful, prewar, three bedroom/three bath residence in mint condition, is the pinnacle of warmth, sophistication and luxury. 12A is a seamless combination of the entire original apartment and half of the adjoining large one bedroom B line. The twelfth-floor landing provides an elegant arrival with only two other units on the floor. Upon entrance to the apartment, a gracious central Gallery provides flow between the primary living areas.
The sunken Living Room with large windows, features a wood burning, marble fireplace and entry to a luxuriously appointed Library/Bedroom with ensuite bath. Both rooms provide direct or oblique views of the East River and 59th Street Bridge.
A large Den with an ensuite marble bath and handsome office, could easily serve as the Primary Bedroom Suite with Dressing Room. The Second Bedroom with terrace and Third Bedroom which currently also functions as a Library, have adjacent or ensuite baths, and are accessible via a separate wing from the central Gallery.
There is a large formal Dining Room that will easily accomodate a sit-down dinner for 12 or more people. The windowed kitchen includes SubZero, Thermador and Bosch appliances as well as a Butlers' Pantry and Breakfast Bar for dining.
Residence 12A features hardwood floors, through-the-wall AC and a washer/dryer. There is also a laundry room in the basement. A storage bin transfers with the apartment.
Financing 50% permitted. There is a 2.5% flip tax paid by the seller. The building is pied-a-terre and pet friendly and is also wheel-chair accessible.
Built in 1938 and conceived by the preeminent Emery Roth, Two Sutton Place South is an exceptional full-service building renowned for its distinctive grand lobby, limestone porte-cochere and white glove service. There is a full-time doorman, Resident Manager, state-of-the-art Fitness Center, Bike Room and gorgeous landscaped Rooftop Garden with views of the East River and 59th St Bridge.
Sutton Place as a neighborhood has much to offer in terms of charm, history and convenience. In addition to six pocket parks, residents will have easy access to the East River Esplanade via a convenient footbridge constructed as part of New York City's NYC's East Midtown Greenway (EMG) project (https://edc.nyc/project/east-midtown-waterfront).
There are two tennis courts within blocks of the building, a multitude of restaurants and shops as well as Whole Foods and Trader Joes. The proximity of Sutton Place to the FDR Drive, 59th St Bridge and to all modes of public transportation, greatly facilitates the commute to airports, surrounding suburbs as well as to the Uptown and Downtown areas of Manhattan.
