First Offering - Brand New to Market. Oversized and quiet high-floor pre-war one bedroom home is dripping with exquisite details and 9'4"-high ceilings. This elegant and gracious layout could only be conceived by renowned master architect Rosario Candela. The magnificent layout boasts a formal foyer, 21'7" by 12'10" living room allowing for three separate seating areas, as well as ample dining space; and 17'10" by 10'8" south-facing bedroom with plenty of room for a king sized bed, end tables, dresser, and office area. A generous hallway separates the living from the sleeping quarters creating a great deal of privacy and quiet. Even the bathroom, which is windowed, is generous in size. Details throughout include parquet oak floors, picture moldings, original hardware, egg-and-dart ceiling molding on the high beamed ceilings, and capacious storage in five enormous closets. The windowed white kitchen also has tremendous storage and counter-space, pearlized mosaic backsplash, under-counter lighting, and a separate service entrance for easy disposal of trash and recyclables.
The Clayton is known not only for its historical importance and beauty but also for its impeccable physical and financial condition as evidenced by the extraordinarily low maintenance. Built in 1922, on land once owned by William Waldorf Astor, the level of service here cannot be surpassed with 24-hour doorman, live-in superintendent, and porters ready to attend to your needs. Incorporated in 1984, there are 15 floors, 4 elevators, and approximately 144 homes with a central laundry room, playroom, storage, and bike room. Pets are welcomed by this reasonable coop board which will consider co-purchasing, guarantors, and pied a terre. Location is superb right off Broadway with so many convenient shopping and dining options, just steps to the express and local subway (which has an entrance on Broadway and 93rd Street), the 104 bus on Broadway, crosstown on 96th, and both Riverside Park and Central Park a few blocks away.
