Emery Roth meets Ernesto Gismondi.
Set in an Emery Roth / Bing & Bing building, this stylish studio juxtaposes prewar details with curated contemporary elements. Beamed ceilings, oak strip floors, classic moldings and exposed brick wood burning fireplace coexist with Artemide fixtures by Ernesto Gismondi, monorail tech track lighting, sleek Ron Rezek ceiling fan and Dornbracht fittings. The result is a warm yet dynamic environment. A cheerful foyer leads to the main room which comfortably accommodates separate living and sleeping areas. There's a private dressing nook with built in bureau adjacent to the windowed bath. The kitchen was designed with custom cabinets, a half fridge, four burner gas cooktop, dishwasher, basket weave marble tile floors and a chrome rail organizing system. The apartment gets lovely light and has two large closets. 434 East 52nd Street is an impeccably run, full-service building in the Southgate complex – considered Manhattan's most distinctive residential Art Deco ensemble. The building is pet-friendly, allows pied-a-terre ownership and sublets. Central air and washer/dryers are permitted with approval. Electricity is included in the maintenance.
