Direct Gramercy Park views from the great room of this perfectly appointed triple-mint pre-war loft. The apartment has undergone an extensive renovation with every inch conceived to maintain the old world elegance of the unit while opening the layout to create the ideal downtown loft.
The unit has four exposures, iconic views, and light flowing into the apartment at all times of the day.
Built at the turn of the 19th Century, the building is located in the Gramercy Park historical district. It was originally built as the Hotel Irving, and in 1915, was advertising parlor bedrooms with a private bath and meals for $30 a week. The building was converted to a co-op in 1986. This apartment is a combination of two seventh floor units and can be easily converted into a two bedroom.
Gramercy Park is a wholly unique enclave of elegant prewar buildings built around Manhattan’s only private park. The owners at 26 Gramercy Park South are able to join the exclusive association that maintains and enjoys the park. The neighborhood is beautiful and serene, yet located steps away from all the action of downtown, including Union Square, the 23rd Street commercial corridor, Madison Square Park, multiple transportation options, and many of the best restaurants and shopping in New York. A few of the notable Gramercy Park residents include John Steinbeck, Thomas Edison, Oscar Wilde, and the Kennedys.
Customized features include solid wenge floors, recently installed wood-frame windows, central air conditioning, and a kitchen and bar built for entertaining. The master bedroom is set back from the great room and has an en suite bathroom. A second bathroom is off of the living room and five closets give you ample storage space. The apartment can be reconfigured to include a second or third bedroom. The building has a part-time doorman, a full-time super, central laundry room, bike room, and pets are welcome.
