Property Description

PRE-WAR 2BR TREASURETake advantage of this extremely rare opportunity to own a beautifully renovated, two-bedroom sanctuary in the historic and mystique-infused Whitby where such notable 20th Century icons as Doris Day, George Burns and Al Capone spent their days and nights. This quiet and contemporary home also retains classic, 1920's detail, including crown moldings and original oak floors lovingly refinished to an elegant sheen. A welcoming entry foyer with large closet opens into a spacious and comfortable living room enhanced by oversized windows with Western exposures, thick, beamed ceilings and a walk-in closet. The windowed kitchen has been re-imagined as a chef's delight and graciously looks out on the living room for myriad entertaining options. No expense was spared in its renovation which features a large, marble-topped island with room for seating, Beko electric stove, custom wood and glass cabinetry, glass tile back-splash and slate floors. The sprawling unit's floor plan also reveals a hallway leading away from the living space and toward two large, split bedrooms. One is bathed in light from dual Northern and Western exposures while the other is Northern exposed and offers peaceful, treetop views. Large closets in each room offer abundant opportunities for storage. The ample bathroom located between the bedrooms, perfect for guests, is also windowed and features a marble, Kohler pedestal sink, porcelain wall and floor tile and a vintage bathtub with glass-enclosed shower.The Whitby, recently profiled in the New York Times, was designed by the esteemed architect Emery Roth (The San Remo, The Beresford) and completed in 1923. This 217-unit, noble structure, renowned for its impressive three sturdy bays and rippling brick cornice, is located on West 45th Street between 8th and 9th Aves in the heart of NYC''s fabled theatre district. The Whitby is a full-service co-op and features one of the most spectacular roof decks in Midtown West with 360 degree, open city views. Amenities include a 24/7 doorman, laundry room, storage, bike room, FIOS and a grand, newly renovated, Art Deco-inspired lobby. It is convenient to all major transportation and an abundance of restaurants, cafes and entertainment. The Whitby is pied-a-terre, co-purchasing and pet-friendly.
