Stylish and bright, this two-bedroom corner co-op at 242 East 19th Street offers both a prime Manhattan location and a creative pedigree. Asking $1,700,000, the two-bedroom Gramercy apartment has been home to Martino Stierli, Chief Curator of Architecture and Design for the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), for over six years.
With treetop views over the park across the street, the corner apartment is light-filled and airy. Crisp, white walls with pre-war details and rich dark wood floors frame graciously proportioned rooms. Customized window treatments control the light throughout the day.
Through a closet-lined entry foyer is a generous living room with high, beamed ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. There is abundant storage space throughout the home.
A modern, well-appointed galley kitchen is ready for action with sturdy butcher block worktops and cork floors. A casual dining area with enough space for a dinner party is just off the living room.
Two large bedrooms share a spacious, vintage-style bath. Both have high ceilings, modern ceiling fans, and plenty of closet space. The second bedroom is currently being used as a library/home office.
The full-service cooperative building features a beautifully landscaped roof deck. Additional amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby, a live-in superintendent, a bike room, storage and laundry facilities.
