Beyond Perfection. This chic, sprawling 3 bed, 3 bath loft, ingeniously reworked by the renowned designer West Chin, is truly spectacular. Currently configured as a 2 bedroom plus den, every inch of the home has been thoughtfully considered. High ceilings and under-floor radiant heat grace every room, while limestone floors and five mahogany encased windows overlooking a gorgeous Beaux-Arts building give a dramatic flair to the living room, which also boasts a wood-burning fireplace. Custom designed by Valcucine of Italy, the 18' foot long rosewood wrapped kitchen with white-glass countertops would be the envy of any celebrity chef. Sub Zero and Miele appliances include double ovens, cooling drawers, cappuccino maker and dual-zone wine cooler. The master bedroom showcases a huge spa-like en suite bathroom richly clad in Italian marble with a Thermomasseur tub, separate shower, double vanity, radiant heat stone flooring, Dornbracht fixtures and a Sony flat panel TV. The second bedroom enjoys grand proportions and en suite bath with limestone and artisan glass tiles. Designed by the renowned contemporary architecture firm Cetra Ruddy and just steps off Fifth Avenue, Altair 18 is perfectly situated between the best of Flatiron and Chelsea. This boutique luxury building is home to 22 unparalleled residences: only 2 per floor, as well a cabana-style roof deck with sweeping city views, 24/7 attended lobby wrapped with Laurelwood, La Palestra fitness center and private storage!
