This one of a kind London Terrace Studio provides the perfect pied a terre or elegant full time home. Each day will feel like you’re living in the finest hotel; and with the London Terrace amenities it’s a Four Star experience. Designer owned, renovated, and furnished this home has been featured often for the de la Torre Studio fabrics and furnishings (yes, it’s available furnished).
Facing south, with a windowed kitchen too, the light illuminates the Linea marble shower though opaque glass. All hardware is Waterworks, of course, including the heated towel rack and custom Medicine Cabinets which are lined in onyx and accommodate electric outlets. The double sinks were custom carved in midnight blue slate, sitting on a Waterworks stand, amplifying the spacious feel of the room.
Should you endeavor to leave that oasis you pass through your dressing room and guest closet. Across from that room the completely outfitted walk-in closet provides ample storage and is also large enough to dress in!
You’ll be awed by the color and beauty of the Calcite, blue marble floor. The custom kitchen cabinetry was fashioned from Fiddled Sycamore and offers abundant storage and topped with a Thasos Marble counter top. The under counter Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer is the perfect size for a Chelsea studio. A Miele dishwasher makes easy work of cleaning up after a light dinner or pre-theater cocktails…in this neighborhood you’ll want to leave the multi-course meals for the local chefs!
The living room with hidden through-wall A/C and heat has been furnished in an artful mix of vintage and original accouterments. Again, the apartment can be rented with or without all or some of these beauties but for the the detail oriented here’s what you’ll find:
The focal point is the De la Torre Design suede and custom chenille day bed. A pair of Jean Royere vintage chairs are covered in custom Starkk fabric and overhead is a vintage George Nelson hanging fixture.A long console, custom hand-carved and covered in mother-of-pearl owns one side of the room and a pair of vintage, Chinese dressers with hand-carved handles flank the hanging fireplace.
Don’t be intimidated, the console and dressers have glass tops to make the guests feel comfortable and the decorative fireplace, when removed provides a swell spot for the bed/sofa.
Remote blackout shades and tiny recessed spotlights throughout invite a myriad of mood lighting. So, what are you waiting for? Be the first to snatch up this paradise.
