For the first time in more than half a century, Duplex 5B|6B at One Beekman Place has come to market. Poised along the centerline of the building and featuring approximately 60 linear feet of windows overlooking the East River on each level, this palatial 12 room home is approximately 5,200 square feet and offers five bedrooms, five and a half baths, a private balcony, and a generously sized one-bedroom staff apartment on a separate floor that conveys with the main residence.
A semi-private elevator landing opens into an impressive gallery on the main floor of the residence. The library, living room, and dining room ? all accessed directly from the gallery - offer extraordinary scale as well as panoramic, unobstructed river views. Grand dimensions, soaring ceilings, and wood-burning fireplaces lend an inviting touch in the library and living room while the inimitable style of society interior decorator Sister Parish is exemplified in the dining room?s nature-inspired wallpaper. Noted to be among the building?s largest, the expansive eat-in kitchen with walk through butler?s pantry is accessed from the dining room and overlooks the iconic Beekman Place streetscape.
An elegant semi-circular staircase leads from the main-floor gallery to the upper level of the home, where all of the five bedrooms are located. Three of the five, including the master suite, face the river. Both the master and adjacent bedroom open on to a semi-circular Juliet balcony, a rare feature within the building. The west wing of the upper level offers two additional bedrooms, a staff room, and a laundry room.
Built by the Rockefeller family in 1929, One Beekman Place was designed by a partnership between Sloan & Robertson and Corbett, Harrison & MacMurray. A pioneer among Manhattan?s most prestigious prewar-era cooperative apartment buildings, it was among the first to include amenities for health and wellness. The elaborately tiled indoor swimming pool opens to an east-facing garden courtyard that has been meticulously landscaped with mature trees and perennial plants. Residents also have exclusive use of a full-size indoor basketball court, a golf simulator, and a fitness studio. A spacious lobby-level lounge opens to a courtyard. Traditional 24/7 white-glove staffing includes a doorman, porters, and an elevator operator. An onsite parking garage is attended by a parking valet.
Just a few blocks from the United Nations and Midtown Manhattan but surrounded by tranquil tree-lined streets, Beekman Place is notable for its understated elegance. Beautifully kept townhomes and handsome prewar apartment buildings create a welcoming atmosphere that feels a world apart from the intense energy of New York City.Listing Courtesy of Compass
