24 W 55TH Street Unit: 10F
Overlooking the iconic garden courtyard of the landmarked Rockefeller Apartments, 10F at 24 West 55th Street is a gracious, southwest facing one bedroom offering in this sought after Midtown prewar cooperative. Brand new, oversized casement windows grace this light filled corner apartment, which features a 22 foot long living room with decorative fireplace and original herring bone wood floors. The square dining area has a dramatic Western view of the recently completed Jean Nouvel residential tower adjacent to The Museum of Modern Art.
Renovated in 2019, the downtown-meets-uptown windowed kitchen has an imported Italian porcelain stoneware countertop, ceramic Kohler Sink with filtrete water filter, Gaggenau vented-out gas stove top and oven, Bosch dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer and an ample storage pantry. The South facing bedroom enjoys a dedicated dressing area with two deep closets. An original art deco bathroom features a pedestal sink with vanity lighting, cast iron tub and generous medicine cabinets. Extending the length of the front hallway with floor-to-ceiling storage and built-in book shelves, a custom home office makes use of every bit of space. Through-the-wall air conditioning is permitted with board approval.
Developed in 1935-37 by Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller in conjunction with the architectural design firm Harrrison & Fouilhoux, the Rockefeller Apartments are considered one of the finest examples of The International Style in New York City and were designated residential landmarks by The New York Landmarks Commission in 1984. The twin buildings, 17 West 54th Street and 24 West 55th Street, were revolutionary in their time, changing apartment building standards with a design allocating 15% more space to light and air than previously required by building codes. These low density 11 story buildings with light colored brick and curved window walls connect through a private garden for use only by building residents.
Just by Fifth Avenue shopping, fine dining and convenient transportation, 24 West 55th Street is a prewar cooperative with a full time doorman, live-in superintendent, central laundry room and private storage by application. Local Law 11 Cycle 9 has been completed. 75% financing, co-purchasing and pied-a-terres are allowed as are pets with board approval. 2% flip tax is paid by seller.
