Explore, Expand and Entertain in Style
You like to color outside the lines, infusing everything you do with your character, charm, and creative flair. Your home should be a place where you can explore, expand, and express yourself without limits. Why make yourself small to fit into the banal sameness of a cookie-cutter layout or a square box? At the landmarked Rutherford Place condominium, a beaux-arts brick and limestone building where every residence is one-of-a-kind, this two bedroom, one bath duplex with a bonus loft will seduce you with its sprawling layout, soaring ceilings, and oversized windows.
The entry floor offers a spacious sanctuary tucked away from the rest of the home. The signature semi-circle-shaped bedroom is graced by five oversized windows and ceilings over 11 feet high.
The ceiling heights soar to 17.5 feet as you ascend the dramatic staircase to the main level, a space ideally suited to entertaining. The open living and dining area - framed by 3 oversized, east-facing windows and 13-foot ceilings - is well-suited to mixing and mingling. The recently-renovated chef's kitchen is sized to accommodate a party in its own right. It is outfitted with top-line appliances and finishes, including a Viking range, Sub-zero refrigerator, Poggenpohl cabinetry, Bosch dishwasher and Quartz marble countertops and backsplash, and illuminated with efficient recessed LED lighting. Those who don't want to cook can pull up a stool at the breakfast bar.
The bathroom, also recently renovated, is outfitted with quartz and porcelain surfaces and a new radiant heated floor. The bedroom on this level is well-separated from the entertaining space by a closet-lined hallway. It offers quiet West exposure and 10-foot ceilings. Rounding out this floor is a washer/dryer.
At 300 square feet, the semi-standing mezzanine loft is a true bonus space. It offers the perfect spot for watching tv, reading, working, or sitting in quiet contemplation away from everything and everyone.
The sum of these parts is a home in which you can spread your wings and fly, a space where you can cook, collaborate, and create; a sanctuary where you can relax and recharge. It feels like townhouse living, but with all the conveniences and amenities of a full-service condominium.
Rutherford Place was built by J.P. Morgan and completed in 1903. It originally housed the New York Lying-In Hospital, one of the city's first maternity hospitals, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This well-run, pet-friendly condominium offers a 24 hour concierge, laundry rooms on every floor, bicycle room, resident manager, on-site valet and housekeeping, and a furnished, planted roof terrace that overlooks Stuyvesant Square Park. A rooftop fitness room is under construction.
The location at East 17th Street and Second Avenue offers proximity to Gramercy, Union Square, the popular Farmer's Market, a myriad of excellent restaurants, and multiple transportation options.
