Home awaits in Unit 7A, a refined 3 Bedroom/3.5 Bathroom + Den co-op residence. The Sovereign is a much sought-after high rise luxury building tucked away amid the exclusive enclave of Sutton Place. Distinctive views of the majestic Queenboro Bridge to the north surround you as soon as you step through the foyer and entrance gallery opening into an expansive living/entertaining area (measuring 14'x27'). An outdoor balcony off the Living Room further extends sweeping city views in all directions. Tall ceilings, extra wide doorways, hardwood floors with striking walnut inlay, and generously proportioned spaces suggest the grandeur of a manor house.

French doors boldly delineate the Formal Dining Room, as well as provide access to the Third Bedroom. The inordinate layout features 2 regal-sized Master Bedrooms, each containing its own walk-in closet, along with several additional closets, offering no shortage of storage options. All 3 bedrooms face either north or south, while the den faces south. Enormous windows saturate the entire home with abundant light as well as merge the stunning Eastside landscape. No expense was spared in executing a higher standard of chef's kitchen, featuring wood breakfront cabinets with opaque glass by Brookstone, countertops of rare Blue Bahia granite imported from Brazil, a Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and washer/dryer, and a Thermador Stove. Sink faucet and instant boiling waterspout are by Franke. This is a windowed eat-in kitchen fit for a gourmet. The renovated bathrooms are finished in mosaic marble and tile with a contemporary sink and vanity. One contains an all-glass walk-in shower. There is also a powder room for guests.
The Sovereign, a 47-story cooperative constructed in 1975, was the vision of the esteemed Emory Roth who was one of the most high profile architects of the 20th century. His name on a building automatically confers value. The Sovereign offers exceptional 24/7 white glove service from an attentive staff of doormen, concierge, live-in super, porters, and handyman. In addition, there is an on-site Management office and a manned mail and package desk in the lobby. The elevators serve only 2 apartments per floor. Air Conditioning and heat are included in the monthly maintenance. Additional amenities include a windowed state of the art fitness center for residents only, bike storage, private storage availability, and a 24-hr valet garage. The building is pet friendly and permits subletting and pieds-a-terre.

Whole Foods, TJ Max, and other shopping destinations and fine dining options are also part of the local color. The area is convenient to the heart of midtown, buses, including crosstown, and subway lines with the addition of the new 2nd Avenue "Q? line.
