Occupying the full fourth floor of the Campanile building at 450 East 52nd Street amid the understated old Manhattan elegance of Beekman Place on the East River, this renovated 3,000-square-foot three-bedroom home offers stunning river views from every room. The stately co-op building was the Mayfair Yacht Club until 1933 and later home to Greta Garbo, Rex Harrison, H.J. Heinz, Mary Martin and the Rothschilds among others. The apartment’s rich original details have been impeccably maintained, while every modern luxury has been painstakingly added.
From the attended elevator to your own private elevator landing and into a gracious foyer complete with powder room and two coat closets, traditional elegance never left this building. The living room is framed by graceful coffered ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and three large windows. Off the living room an executive-grade wood-paneled corner library/home office awaits a quiet read or a day’s work.
For the chef of the family, a mint-condition windowed kitchen is the central hub of this perfectly-outfitted home, with top-of-the-line appliances, of course, plus a wine cooler, a massive marble center island and walk-in storage. A large formal dining room offers a rare spot for riverside entertaining,
The master bedroom has an en-suite bath, a generous walk-in closet (plus two more closets). The second bedroom also has an en-suite bath and those unforgettable views.
In the classic pre-war style, there’s also a staff room with a full bath, plus a laundry room, two-zoned central AC, and a new Crestron system for making sure these rooms are as comfortable as they are beautiful.
