Chef’s Dream Eat-in Kitchen in a Beautiful Pre-War Apartment on the Upper East Side
Welcome to 130 East 67th Street on the Upper East Side in Manhattan – a beautiful Italian Renaissance-palazzo style apartment building built in 1908 by architect Charles A. Platt.
One of its beautiful apartments is listed for sale and features an all-marble beautiful gourmet kitchen.
“This stunning home is truly one-of-kind on the Upper East Side and perfect for those seeking both style and function. The huge eat-in kitchen has broad appeal both to the masterful chef and to anyone looking for incredible gathering space,” says real estate broker Lisa Larson of Warburg Realty, and it’s absolutely true.
Because of the different materials and textures in which the designers have embodied black and white colours, the kitchen looks dynamic and harmonious.
The combination of white ceilings, black walls and gray floor is not in the least trivial. On the contrary. With properly placed accents of furniture, light, and bright accessories, it’s an interior to inspire the most demanding residents.
Part of the kitchen is composed of high cabinet-columns with large, built-in appliances (including double Wolf wall ovens). There is also a Wolf 6-burner plus skillet vented cooktop, Miele dishwasher, and full-sized vented Asko washer/dryer. The kitchen also hosts an artfully designed bar with a 132-bottle Sub-Zero wine refrigerator.
The working area shines in glossy white, while the upper facades come to just above the cooking surface, allowing maximum light through the large windows. In the evening, spotlights provide spot-on lighting. Black furniture is as stylish as the quintessential black dress. Even the heaviest materials in combination with light and transparent chairs, chandeliers, and glasses combine easily with metal and glossy surfaces.
Transparent furniture fits very well in this kitchen, as it seems weightless, inconspicuous, and creates a feeling of lightness and spaciousness. It fits well in avant-garde and high-tech, as well as in minimalist kitchens with clear forms and simple design.
An incredibly bold, eye-catching yet highly practical accent on the kitchen is a marble island. It emphasizes the geometrical and minimal details, making the kitchen elegant and refined – the perfect space to experiment with exotic dishes brought back from your gourmet travels.
What about the rest of the property? It’s as stunning as the kitchen. We will let the pictures speak for themselves.
