Property Description

A stunning one bedroom residence or pied-a-terre has just become available at the Rockefeller Apartments, an “International Style” landmarked residential complex of two buildings joined by an elegant private garden. It was built in 1936 by the Rockefeller family, who used their personal architects, Wallace Harrison and Andre Fouilhoux, to design the buildings. The apartment was owned by the late Elsa Klensch, an Australian-American pioneer of television fashion journalism, who produced and hosted CNN's Style with Elsa Klensch, which aired for over 20 years, as well as CNN's House of Style. This jewel of an apartment has a spacious living room and adjacent circular dining room, both with sunny southern exposures overlooking leafy trees and the MoMA sculpture garden. The glorious bank of curved windows create an urban oasis in the heart of midtown. A hallway with multiple closets leads to a large, sunny bedroom (also with ample closets). A spacious bathroom and sleek kitchen complete the residence. There are beautiful herringbone floors, through-wall AC, and excellent storage throughout. Pied-a-terres and pets are allowed. There is a full-time doorman and live-in building manager. Garage in the building: spaces available for $550/month. Early residents of this distinguished building were a microcosm of New York theatre and arts. Own a piece of New York history - come by soon.
