Straus Park Stunner with Striking Balcony Asks $4.65 Million
One of the most sought after units in the exclusive Straus Park condominium is back on the market. The Opus’#18B has changed hands a lot over the past few years but like many others, she has learned that you have to kiss a few frogs to meet your prince. Well, she’s ready to meet her prince – or princess – and she’s enlisted Corcoran agent Greg Kammerer to help.
The 2,241-square-foot condo may sit at the top of a 22-story building but her giant windows bring the city to her fingertips. And that might be all you need of the Big Apple, because with all that this 4BR/3BA condo has to offer you could find yourself vacationing in your own home.
Believe it or not, the setback terrace and its stunning views aren’t the only thing about this penthouse that will turn heads. She also has 7 rooms including a living room/dining room; a formal dining room (or den if you prefer) with a decorative fireplace; a gas fireplace; and 3 bathrooms fully outfitted by Waterworks. There’s a recently remodeled chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances; and wood floors and high ceilings throughout the entire apartment. The master bath even has a steam shower and floor-to-ceiling windows for the ultimate in pampering utopia. Oh, and one other thing. Each room has its own air conditioning and heat controller. Need we say more?
The Straus Park Condominium is a fairly new building, built in 2005 by Randolph Gerner (the G of GKV Architects). They’re also responsible for renovating the Bowery Savings Bank as well as the CUNY Brooklyn College Student Center. The building, developed by the Clarett Group, was designed with the famous Flatiron Building in mind, as you can tell from the shape of that spectacular terrace overlooking the Hudson River, which is practically in this condo’s backyard. In fact, the condo is conveniently located by three parks, including the iconic Central Park – in case the building’s two landscaped rooftop terraces cease to amaze you. It’s also within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. But where’s the nearest gym? Right down the elevator. And what will the children do while you’re working out? They’ll play in the children’s center. The building only has 64 units on purpose, so you get the best service possible at all times. Now that sounds like a deluxe apartment in the sky.
