An extraordinary residence in one of the most fabled cooperatives in Manhattan. Renovated by renowned London architect and designer David Collins, this timelessly elegant duplex is a contemporary oasis with a nod to the past. A gracious entry foyer opens onto a generous gallery-dining room which leads into a grand 27' x 28-foot living room with soaring 18' ceilings and two dramatic 14' tall French casement windows that bathe the room in natural light. This voluminous great room is adorned with a wood-burning fireplace with an Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann-inspired mantelpiece with floor-to-ceiling bookcases on either side and original wide plank wood floors which have been beautifully restored. A concealed wet bar off the entry gallery allows you to entertain in style. Adjacent to the entry gallery is a large chef's kitchen with Carrara statuary countertops and stainless-steel Boffi cabinets with walnut Canaletto finishes. The kitchen features an integrated double sink, sliding chopping board, and an abundance of storage and counter space. Upon entering the second level, which can be accessed by either a staircase or private elevator, you will find a mezzanine/media room that overlooks the dramatic double-height living room. A bar with an onyx countertop and a gracious powder room complete the entertainment section of this level. The bedroom wing is separated by a long hallway leading to the luxurious 21' by 17' primary bedroom teeming in sunlight from southern and eastern exposures. An en-suite spa bathroom in rich green marble has a steam rain shower with massage jets, heated floors, and a heated towel bar. The sun-filled and spacious second bedroom with a double southwestern exposure has a wood-burning fireplace with the original marble mantelpiece and an abundance of tastefully built-in closets. A generous windowed second bathroom has marble mosaic floors, a Jacuzzi bathtub, heated floors and towel bars, and a separate area for a vanity. This glamorous one-of-a-kind home is outfitted with custom Lutron lighting, central HVAC, and other quality systems. There is also a 7'5” by 16' room on the second floor with southern and western exposures. Presently being used as a private gym, the room can also serve as a home office. The apartment is very spacious with gross square footage of approximately 3,330 square feet with an additional room on the second floor of approximately 150 square feet (per draftsman). 322 East 57th Street is a neo-classical limestone building built in 1929 and designed by architect Harry M. Clauson of Caughey & Evans. The legendary building was once home to famous artists, book illustrators, and world-class musicians. It still retains its character while also attaining a contemporary cosmopolitan aura. Pets and pieds-à-terre are permitted. Co-exclusive listing with Brown Harris Stevens.
