Chic Gramercy Park Loft This fashionable and thoroughly renovated two-bedroom loft condominium is located in the Rutherford, a spectacular beaux arts brick and limestone building built by JP Morgan and completed in 1903. Measuring approximately 1,630 square feet, this apartment is located on the seventh floor, with sunny exposures to the north, east and south. The open-plan public room configuration runs north to south, from a double-height living room and adjoining dining room, to a separate kitchen with a large cased opening--a recently restored industrial metal and wood staircase acts as a focal point at the space's center. The kitchen includes all new cabinets, a Subzero fridge, a Viking range, a Bosch dishwasher, hardwood floors and Zodiaq Calacatta Natura marble on the counter top and backsplash. Additional features of this apartment include a light-flooded master bedroom suite with southern views of Stuyvesant Square Park and downtown Manhattan, Calacatta Gold Marble and Waterworks fixtures in both bathrooms, and a second bedroom whose location on the third floor provides total privacy for the master.
Rutherford Place is a full-service condominium with a 24-hour doorman and live-in Superintendent, a roof deck and a bike room. This pet-friendly building is located just south of Gramercy Park, nearby Union Square and the East Village, and immediately to the north of Stuyvesant Park, a four-acre parcel of the original Stuyvesant farm that was given to the city by Peter Stuyvesant's great-great-grandson in 1836. Rutherford Place originally housed the New York Lying-In Hospital, one of the city's first maternity hospitals. Now a National Landmark, it boasts a rich provenance-it is estimated that during the early part of the 20th century over half of all babies born in Manhattan where born in this building.
