Elegant, tasteful features, a tree-lined Manhattan street, and a stone’s throw from the East River? This two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment truly has it all, and not to mention, it’s set in a collaborative building created by one of the most important real estate developers in New York City in the early 20th century Bing & Bing and architect Emery Roth.
Located at 434 East 52nd Street, Apartment 4-G, this apartment is loaded with luxury appointments. For starters, it has a sunken living room with a 13-foot ceiling, which also boasts a wood-burning fireplace, wood floors, and a huge, ten-foot-high, double-wide window.
It’s overlooked by a wrought-iron balcony, adjacent to the large dining area. The galley kitchen has custom cherry cabinets and an east-facing window of its own.
The primary bedroom provides northern views of 52nd Street, which is lined with trees and has enough space for a king-sized bed, along with a windowed en-suite bathroom, and a washer and dryer.
The second bedroom faces south and has views of the building’s garden. A second bathroom boasts marble floors and a glass shower.
What owners will truly love, though, are the classic Emery Roth touches throughout the property. That includes beamed ceilings, beautiful moldings, doorknobs, and more — the famed architect’s designer fingerprints are all over the unit!
434 East 52nd Street is a full-service building in the Southgate complex and is among the most gorgeous in the city. After all, according to The New York Times, “The Bing & Bing buildings are regarded as among the city’s finest prewar properties.” Owners are blocks away from Midtown, with all of the dining and entertainment that it offers, as well as the East River.
