Gainsborough Studios is one of the most colorful buildings in the Central Park South area of New York City. The Gainsborough is a historic and landmarked building, designed by Thomas Buckham in 1908 and notable for its façade of colorful tiles. The building has 16 stories and is the only pre World War I building on the 200 block of CPS. It was created by an artistic community with the dream of having a light-filled place to work and exhibit their art. Now it represents some of the city’s prized real estate with units directly facing Central Park and offering beautiful northern light.
A new-to-the-market duplex loft in this building has been listed at $4.195 million.
The duplex itself features a dramatic double height living room with direct Central Park views and a wood-burning fireplace. The windowed kitchen has been renovated with stainless steel countertops, Viking stove and Miele dishwasher. The formal dining room and a half bathroom complete the fabulous entertaining space on the lower level.
Upstairs, a loft-like master bedroom suite is open to the living room below with a library balcony leading to a sitting area perched above Central Park. The luxurious master bathroom features Venetian plaster, radiant floor heating and a large walk-in shower. The second bedroom has custom built-in bookshelves and an entrance to the elevator landing.
This intimate full-service co-op has a full time doorman/elevator attendant and only thirty five residences.
