No detail was overlooked during the meticulous renovation of this elegant one bed, two bath pre-war home on an ideal Upper East Side block. Apartment 14J features a wood-burning fireplace, stunning oak herringbone flooring, custom wainscot paneling, and an abundance of customized storage throughout. The residence offers a windowed chef's kitchen with a lovely breakfast room directly adjacent, a sun-drenched living room with Southern exposure, central AC, two windowed bathrooms and a charming home office. 14J is a classic and expertly designed residence, which truly exemplifies luxury living on the Upper East Side.

As you enter through the foyer, walls embellished with gorgeous mahogany wood paneling captivate the space and continue into the cleverly built-out office, creating a perfect divide between entry and living. Stepping into the open living area you're greeted by large South-facing windows which deliver light throughout the day, high beamed ceilings and a wood burning fireplace. The bright and open living space is perfectly proportioned for gracious entertaining, with a dedicated spacious dining area as well an expansive living room. Custom built-in media cabinets provide extra storage and are easily concealed. A secondary bathroom with top of the line Urban Archeology fixtures and Lefroy Brooks fittings can be accessed from the living area as well.

The perfect breakfast nook featuring a leather built-in banquette, custom wainscot paneling, marble accents, chic sconces and a built-in media cabinet/bookshelf is directly off the mint renovated kitchen. The gourmet kitchen features top of the line stainless steel appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf stove, and a paneled Asko dishwasher. Premium Calacatta marble countertops and backsplash, industrial light fixtures and custom windowed cabinets creating ample storage complete this gorgeous kitchen.

Multiple customized closets which were thoughtfully built out for maximum storage line the walls of the charming bedroom. Large North-facing windows bathe this room with light throughout the day. The serene windowed master bath features subway tile and is also outfitted with Urban Archeology fixtures and Lefroy Brooks fittings.
