This is a picturesque apartment from a picturesque building, the Art Deco co-op 444 East 52nd Street. The Beekman apartment in question belongs to the fashion photographer Paul Sinclaire, who purchased it in 2014 for $1.35 million. After being listed on the market last year without finding a buyer, it’s once again up for grabs at a price of $2.195 million.
The double-height living room is lined with enormous casement windows, dark wood floors and a wood burning fireplace. (All that light makes it the perfect place to showcase art.)
The views from this apartment look out onto the terraces of The River House, the iconic co-op located across the street, and extend out to the East River.
A staircase from the sunken living room leads up to the “dining gallery,” both bedrooms, and an eat-in kitchen.
A renovation left the kitchen with sleek white cabinetry and fancy appliances that include freezer drawers as well as a wine cooler.
Each of the two bedrooms has their own ensuite baths and generous closets. There’s also a walk-in closet off the foyer.
The co-op has a 24-hour doorman and elevator attendant, private storage, and a recently renovated laundry room. Located on the very eastern end of Midtown, most of the building, including this apartment, gets wonderful views of the East River.
