Sutton Space Splendor with a Literary Legacy
Welcome! From the semi-private landing, a barrel ceiling foyer sweeps you into a large square entry gallery, with a beautiful marble floor and hidden coat closets. Radiating off the gallery are the gracious and sun-splashed formal living room with hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace, the beautifully proportioned dining room with original molding, and a fantastically large eat in kitchen. Behind the enormous kitchen is a house-sized laundry room and the back service entrance. The closets and storage in the kitchen and laundry are capacious. Even so, an additional storage area is included with this home.
A dramatic hallway leads from the central gallery to the residential wing, anchored by a grand primary bedroom with abundant space for a king bed and a sitting area, two walk-in closets, an en-suite bath, and glorious, expansive views of the city, highlighted by the Queensboro Bridge and the Roosevelt Island Tramway. The large, well-proportioned secondary bedroom also boasts a walk-in closet and en-suite bath. For the literary among us, the third bedroom, outfitted as an office with built in cabinetry, is where the renowned author, E.L. Doctorow, wrote The March, Homer & Langley, and Andrew’s Brain. A Jack and Jill bath connects this room and the adjoining library (a potential fourth bedroom.)
Sutton House is a boutique, white glove, mid-rise building with just 35 residences, a full-time door person, porters, and a live-in Resident Manager. Amenities include a flowering landscaped garden, a roof top Roman escape, and basement laundry. You’ll appreciate wonderful shopping, including Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s (soon), great restaurants, houses of worship, premier schools and easy access to Midtown, the East River and a series of pocket parks for playing and relaxing. Over 3000 square feet, 9 ½ ft. ceilings, beautiful light, and prewar details make this apartment a remarkable space to call home.
