One Sutton Place South

Maisonette GR C

The maisonette at One Sutton Place South is among the most coveted of Manhattan residences. This prime example of such embodies the privacy, spaciousness, and character of a freestanding house, while possessing the security and communal spirit of being situated within the neighborhood's premier apartment building.

The home has its own discreet gated entrance leading on to East 57th Street cul-de-sac and Sutton Place, as well as having access from within the building's lobby. The seven-room, two-bedroom, three-bath home is flooded with natural light from its eastern, southern, and northern exposures, and has the feel of a country residence, as its airy rooms meld one into the next. Though no two rooms are identical, the apartment is cohesive and organic in its floorplan. Public and private domains are clearly demarcated.

The generously scaled, near-square living room embraces direct views of the building's private, contemplative garden that runs along the East River, growing with mature gingkoes, a magnolia, colorful spring blooms, and blossoming summer hydrangeas. Mornings, the rising sun imbues the interiors with a buttery light that lingers. By night, glimpses can be had of the 59th Street Bridge's jewel-like necklace of lights. Animated street views are afforded through windows in the foyer and kitchen, while the corner primary suite is surrounded by greenery and open sky. City and garden vistas alternate room to room.

Over the years, master artisans have left their mark. The residence features a new Edwin Lutyens-style kitchen, referencing the great English Arts & Crafts architect, with white subway tiles seamlessly cladding the walls and ceiling, counters topped with white quartzite, and a built-in work desk. Elsewhere, a library ensconced in cherry wood and a separate reading area feature floor-to-ceiling bookcases, accented with corbeled moldings in the French style. The library centers on a restored wood-burning fireplace. The formal dining room is traced with expertly rendered botanical-themed moldings, coupled with classic-style wood paneling carved by European craftsmen. The primary bath includes double-vanity sinks lined in textured gold metal, a spacious windowed shower, and separate water closet.

Display niches, seating alcoves, built-in desks, and deep closets are found throughout. Eight-foot-high doors, windows, and walls align in a perfect classical symmetry. A careful sense of proportion and elegance prevails, with every room ideally suited for family life or for a couple who entertain on a grand scale. The floor plan is such that there is an effortless flow from the library to the dining room to the kitchen.

The building's architect, Rosario Candela, was the undisputed master designer of apartment houses in the 1920s and 30s, known for his attention to detail and unique floor plans. This 14-story building, completed in 1926, is one of his triumphs, noted for its architecturally significant porte-cochere on Sutton Place. This home represents the zenith of Candela's vision for what an apartment maisonette could accomplish for its residents in a building of this stature.
