This inviting duplex home, with its generous proportions and sprawling layout, feels very much like a house. Entrance from a double elevator landing is into a gracious gallery with a powder room, leading to the corner living room and formal dining room, each with a wood burning fireplace, and the adjacent library. With open exposures to the north, east and south, the public rooms receive tremendous light and have protected views to the Carlyle Hotel tower on one side and over St. James's church on the other. The windowed eat-in kitchen with breakfast area and butler's pantry are off the dining room, with two staff rooms and a staff bathroom to the side. A separate service hall and entrance complete this floor. The primary staircase from the gallery and the back staircase from the kitchen lead to the upper level, with three large bedrooms, one with wood burning fireplace, and each with bathroom en suite. Massive closets line the hallway leading to the bedrooms. There are also two enclosed private storage rooms in the basement, one of which serves as the apartment's own laundry. The building itself is highly serviced and has an outdoor children's play area. It is also pet friendly.
