For those who appreciate history, style and design, there is only one place to live, the Rockefeller Apartments. Located on one of midtown Manhattan’s most beautiful streets, the Rockefeller Apartments are across from the Museum of Modern Art, where one can enjoy a respite in the Museum’s lovely sculpture garden, a cappuccino in the ground floor restaurant and bar, or a stroll among the world’s most extensive collection of modern art. In addition, residents of the Rockefeller Apartments have their own private garden with tables and chairs for a morning coffee or a glass of wine and cheese in the evening. The garden is nestled between its two distinct buildings, designed by architect Wallace K. Harrison, a unique example of vintage Bauhaus architecture, which was commissioned by Nelson Rockefeller in 1936. The building is a historic landmark, a prewar modernist gem.

We are excited to offer you this masterfully renovated one-bedroom with separate dining alcove, is a perfect home for entertaining. The apartment overlooks the building’s serene courtyard garden, has open skyline view and is drenched in northern light throughout the day. Herringbone floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, cylindrical chrome hardware and generously proportioned rooms are among the original details. The exceptionally renovated windowed kitchen has a pantry and a service entrance. Features include, German Leicht Kitchen cabinets with pull-out drawers/glass side panels with ample storage space. Superior quality appliances, Liebherr refrigerator, Bosch cooktop and dishwasher and 2 Gaggenau wall ovens (microwave/convection combo). The original Bauhaus door between kitchen and dining alcove has been fully restored.

The entry foyer with its artistic circular metal front door and herringbone floor welcomes you into a spacious north-facing living room with oversized windows and a decorative fireplace with black/white marble mosaic tiles and inero marquina hearth. The spacious bedroom has a large picture window with a large dressing room. The bathroom has been completely refinished to its original Bauhaus style with original tiles and Bauhaus medicine cabinets.
