Every once in a while, you walk into a home that is so beautifully done, you wouldn’t change a thing. This is one of those homes. Meticulously renovated with no detail overlooked, the designer/architect (also the owner) spared no expense to build a dream home that’s impossible not to fall in love with. From the custom designed millwork throughout to the expanded open kitchen, you will appreciate the care, attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into renovating this space. The finishes are superior to many used in high-end new developments.
The windowed kitchen is outfitted with marble counters and backsplash, a 5 burner cooktop, microwave and wine fridge by Thermador, a refrigerator, dishwasher and full-sized washer and dryer from Bosch, a Blanco sink and CEA stainless steel faucet, and hidden under cabinet lighting.
Both the full bathroom and powder room have windows and feature Duravit (Starck) toilets, marble tiles on the floors and walls, CEA stainless steel plumbing fixtures throughout, custom vanities, and recessed Kohler medicine cabinets. The primary bathroom also features a Duravit shower enclosure and a custom Corian bathtub with Vigo tub enclosure.
The living room and bedrooms feature marble-topped custom HVAC enclosures with storage below the windows, 5″ wide white oak hardwood floors, Artemide lighting fixtures throughout, Sugatsune hidden hinges for all interior doors, Hunter Douglas custom shades, and large California closets throughout.
As if this wasn’t enough, this beautiful home has generously sized rooms and high ceilings and is also incredibly bright, with 9 windows and three exposures, which bring in natural sunlight throughout the day.
215 West 78th Street is a boutique building with only four apartments per floor.
