Come for the details; including original hardwood floors, picture moldings, 9.5’ ceilings, and stay for the incredible views over Morningside Park and beyond.
Upon entering Residence 62, you’ll immediately be struck by the light pouring into the gallery hallway, encouraging you to take a deep breath, hang up your coat in the large entry closet, and truly arrive. Flanking the long hallway is the first of two bedrooms, with large North-facing windows, custom stained glass detail, and a closet. Directly adjacent to this bedroom is the home’s windowed primary bathroom, with a freshly glazed claw foot tub & classic pre-war charm.
At the end of the hallway, the second bedroom gives you your first peek at the wide open, protected, Eastern views that make this home stand out above the rest. The views continue throughout the perfectly proportioned living & dining spaces. Currently laid out as an expansive two bedroom with home office and formal dining, this home can easily be converted to a three bedroom with a large primary & adjacent dressing room - please see the alternate floorplan provided.
Enjoy the sunrise with a warm cup of coffee in the gracious living room, with plenty of room for multiple furniture configurations. Bask in the dancing rays of golden hour & sunset as you entertain your guests in the formal dining room. These two spaces can also be combined for a massive, contiguous open concept great room, where you can watch the leaves turn in Morningside Park from your perch above it all.
In the center of this home, you’ll find an eat-in kitchen, complete with a large window, marble countertops, subway-tile backsplash, a farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, and ample storage. Perhaps the most unique room in the home lies between the kitchen & dining room - perfect for a home office, library, guest nook, or any other bonus space you need, this space has so much potential. There is also a powder room for additional convenience.
Completed in 1904 by prolific architects Schwartz & Gross, La Touraine is an elegant, 24-unit pre-war building in the heart of Morningside Heights.
