House of the Day: Floors Too Pretty to Walk On
Ask any designer and they'll tell you: A home's soul is where the soles go -- its floors. And as a sucker for beautiful floors, these distressed, wide-plank Brazilian cherry surfaces would have us removing our shoes for sure.
Occupying the full eighth floor of a building in New York City's Gramercy Park, this 4,100-square-foot condo with floors to die for is listed at $5.45 million. The home is more than 40-feet wide and has 11.2-foot ceilings. There are 20 seven-foot tall loft windows with southern, northern and western exposures.
The kitchen has a center island with an eight-burner Viking range; double ovens, a vented hood, breakfast bar, granite counter tops, cherry cabinets, and built-in wine refrigerator. There is a den/library with the same beautiful cherry wood as the built-ins, and the corner master bedroom has two walk-in closets and a separate dressing area.
Jacky Teplitzky and Iman Bacodari, both of Prudential Douglas Elliman Realty, have the listing.
