We find this light-filled, beautifully outfitted three-bedroom residence on the 33rd floor of the Bristol in the pleasant neighborhood of Lenox Hill.
This unit boasts ample northern, western, and eastern exposures, but the standout feature of this home must be the two glass alcoves: one in the living area and the other in the master bedroom.
In the living room, floor-length windows along five sides of the alcove create a breathtaking but secure perch from which one can survey the cityscape towards Central Park.
At over ten feet across, there’s room in the alcove for a table or soe comfortable seating without seeming closed off from the rest of the spacious living room.
In the master bedroom, a similar space has been thoughtfully fitted with counters and cabinetry, inviting residents to interpret their own interests and needs in the space. Hobby space, a reading nook, or a collection of houseplants are just a few possibilities that come to mind. Should there ever be a need for greater privacy or lower light, the entire unit is fitted with electric shades, enabling customizability at the touch of a button.
The master bedroom includes a more conventional but similarly attractive east-facing window whose views continue in the attached bathroom.
This bathroom has a very livable design: access is through a generous walk-in closet that offers a bit of privacy and separation, and the bathroom itself is equipped with two sinks set in handsome stone countertops.
While the bathroom is efficiently sized, custom cabinetry, ample shelving, well-placed outlets, and a convenient nook above each sink ensure that storage needs will be elegantly handled. The toilet has its own door, so it’s easy to share this space.
Equal consideration has been given to the public spaces, whose expansiveness is accentuated by 10-foot ceilings.
Besides the impressive living room mentioned above, we also find a centrally located foyer with adjoining powder room in which to welcome guests as well as a windowed dining room adjacent to both the living room and kitchen.
It’s worth noting the many closets and storage spaces built into this residence, a must for neat living as well as organized entertaining.
The impressive custom cabinetry continues in the windowed kitchen, where counters wrap around the perimeter, ending in a cozy little peninsula right where people might wander in from the dining room for a chat.
No space is wasted here; the full backsplash is easy to maintain, and the appliances are, of course, quality offerings from Bosch and Sub-Zero.
Built in 1988, the Bristol is a building known for top-tier, white-glove amenities and service, including a pool and sauna, sundeck, and private driveway. The beautiful and upscale neighborhood of Lenox Hill affords coveted access to the parks, dining, attractions, and shopping of Manhattan, with many transit options within easy reach.
