The 1928 co-op at 447 East 57th Street in quietly elegant Sutton Place is about as classic pre-war Manhattan as it gets. The 15-story building, designed by notable architect Rosario Candela, contains only 23 apartments, and this available sprawling four-bedroom co-op occupies the entire top floor. Asking $6,950,000, the nine-room residence is currently home to architect Stephen Corelli, who redesigned the space with an eye to Candela’s legacy, while installing 21st-century amenities and timeless style.

From a private elevator landing, the grand entry gallery opens onto the co-op’s living and dining rooms. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace. Chevron-pattered parquet floors and 1920s-style windows frame the space.

In keeping with the graciously-proportioned rooms throughout the apartment, several service rooms were combined to create the spacious modern eat-in kitchen. Highlights of this room’s dramatic design include pantry storage, a breakfast bar, a large center island, and Miele appliances. For added convenience, the kitchen has access to a service elevator and private laundry.

A formal dining room is lined in suitably sleek de Gournay hand-painted mural wallpaper. The south-facing library is a unique and enviable retreat with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a “secret” door to the primary bedroom.

The home’s more private quarters offer four bedrooms, each with a private bath. The two-exposure main bedroom has a wood-burning fireplace and a hallway/dressing room lined with closets. The primary bath is a manicured personal spa clad in limestone, mahogany paneling, and ceramic tile, featuring a large steam shower. The fourth bedroom is currently being used as a media room/den.

In addition to zoned central A/C, all of the apartment’s electrical, plumbing, and mechanicals are new. Included is a large storage room in the cellar.

The 1928 co-op rose in the golden age of New York City’s residential design. Its gracious legacy goes beyond a handsome facade and elegant interiors; the building still offers a full staff of doormen, porters, and a resident manager.
