Apartment 15EF is an architectural gem in the iconic San Remo building with dramatic views overlooking Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. The sprawling corner residence is available for the first time since a thoughtful combination expanded the floorplan to an over 5,500-square-foot, 14-room home. Currently configured as 3 bedrooms and a library with an additional study and a media room, the flexible layout could easily provide four or even five bedrooms.
Upon entering the grand center gallery which features a powder room, you are met with an exquisitely detailed ceiling and two-toned, geometric-designed wood flooring. An impressive corner living room with a gas fireplace faces north and east through 5 setback casement windows each lined with mirroring, inviting the outdoors in and immersing the space in all of Manhattan's beauty.
A magnificent master suite in this wing of the apartment features a sizable windowed walk-in closet/dressing room, full bathroom, and 3 casement windows overlooking Central Park. A second bedroom suite, currently being used as a home office, also has its own full bathroom, walk-in closet and park views.
Off of the home's gallery you'll also find a wood-paneled library with built-in bookshelves, the main kitchen outfitted with a large wine refrigerator, full bathroom, eat-at island, double oven with 6-burner stove, full washer and dryer, a breakfast room with plentiful storage, staff room, and a spectacular north-facing formal dining room with coffered ceiling that leads to the apartment's combined northwest wing through pocket doors.
The northwest wing (also accessible through its own entrance from a different elevator bank) consists of an additional bedroom or study with a full bathroom, sauna and laundry closet with additional full-size washer and dryer, a media room, home office, cedar and walk-in closet/dressing room, a bedroom with a full bathroom, as well as a full eat-in catering kitchen. The apartment also offers central air conditioning throughout and is wired for sound.
