Private House With Fireplace

Beekman Place Masterpiece British designer John Pawson has applied his signature minimalist aesthetic to this stunning and dramatic, triple mint renovated, one-of-a-kind trophy loft-like residence with walls washed with light and beautiful views overlooking the East River. This gracious 6 into 5 Room, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath home is in an esteemed, prewar Cooperative located in the heart of the Beekman Place. This masterpiece was completely redesigned and constructed to create a space of rest and contemplation and bring the element of water from the outside to the inside. Step into the Kitchen which leads to an expansive open Dining and Living Room. The Kitchen includes only the finest materials: grey concrete slab counter tops that were poured onsite in order to achieve no seems, fiber optic lighting over the Kitchen counter, stainless steel Gaggenau 4 burner stove with steamer, vented hood, Miele invisible dishwasher and invisible Sub Zero refrigerator and abundant storage throughout. The Living Room houses a signature Pawson fireplace, individual poured concrete slabs with formica drawers underneath creating a gallery like setting with additional storage, and oversized picture windows with expansive river views. A large glass wall separates the Living Room from the Master Bedroom in order to bring the element of water into this south facing room which boasts an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling custom closets and an en-suite Bath. The Bathroom with an artistic skylight feature has poured concrete throughout and includes: trough sink, vanity with lighted mirror, soaking tub, floor-to-ceiling mirrored vanity cupboard, linen closet with hooks up for a washer/dryer and a separate room with a windowed glass shower that has white ceramic tile walls, a bench and concrete slab floor with no drain so the water drains around the outside to create the outdoor shower feel and a Toto toilet. The second Bedroom hosts a complete wall of floor-to-ceiling storage with a hidden built-in desk/home office and is conveniently located next to the only door in the apartment which leads to the private, second full windowed Bathroom with a poured concrete and glass shower enclosure with the same outdoor feel, and concrete vanity and mirror with lighting. Additional features throughout include: minimal fixtures, reveal walls, Italian ceiling lighting, imported old farm house floors with no knots, door openings up to the ceiling for continuity, black out and sheer electric shades, stereo and sound, and through the wall air conditioning. This home meticulously designed for comfortable living and sophisticated entertaining. 455 East 51st Street is a 6-story pre-war co-op built in 1920. It sits at the end of a picturesque, tree-lined street and features a full-time doorman, a landscaped courtyard, a rooftop terrace with spectacular East River views, a gym, and private storage. Nearby are a number of trendy restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and subway lines 6/E/M. Pets and pieds-a-terre allowed.
