The mid-rise Manhattan apartment building the Merritt House features a rich array of traditional and contemporary styling. Many prewar apartments have been renovated, losing the details of the time. The Merritt House chose to avoid complete renovation and instead simply restored some of the finer aspects of the apartments including crown molding throughout the units.
The units each feature the comfort of wood-burning fireplaces and the modern feel of Bosch washer and dryers. The gourmet-style kitchens come complete with white cabinetry, wine coolers and stainless steel ovens. The bathrooms are a blend of marble, complete with a vanity, glass shower and bathtub. The fixtures are from Kohler.
Residents are likely to agree that it boasts all of the best amenities that luxury apartments are meant to have, plus a few extra. The building has the eagerly sought-after benefit of a parking garage. It also features a beautiful courtyard, storage and a laundry room. With a fully stocked fitness center and a nursery, parents will be able to catch a workout without the extra burden of working out a sitter. Rounding out the amenities are a doorman and a peaceful rooftop deck.
Apartments on the Upper East Side are in one of the most sought-after locations in Manhattan. With access to fine dining, shopping and a variety of entertainment, residents of the Merritt House are not easily bored. Access to public transportation makes the apartment building a great home for commuters as well.
