Murray Hill apartment description

Seventh Heaven

Finding a quiet, tree-lined block in the middle of bustling Murray Hill is nothing short of a miracle. Brownstones dressed with gas lit lamps and trailing ivy congregate here, seemingly untouched by time. In the middle of this sun-dappled street, a former rectory remains standing in its entire Gothic splendor. Inside, paradise on earth: two bedrooms and four bathrooms spread out over three floors of ample space. It’s enough to make you sing hallelujah.

Preaching to the choir

Your hosts are a high end real estate broker and a mergers & acquisitions lawyer who took a leap of faith to become a bona fide New York power couple.

Chapter and Verse

The entryway is graced with earthly treasures from exotic locales: an intricately carved wooden console and loveseat, an opulent silk rug, and paintings of an Eastern deity and Indian village women. With a generously sized kitchen hewn out of stone, steel and wood, cooking is a pleasure from the first to the last supper. Abundant light spills through the Gothic lancet windows, illuminating the scarlet-hued living area.

Walk down the spiral staircase to the lower level, to find a space devoted to fun. A cozy den with a flat screen television is the perfect spot for curling up with a divine comedy. A rainbow of hues lights up the guest room through the tinted windows, like modern-day cathedral stained glass. On the ground floor, retreat to the master bedroom, where milky walls and warm wood furniture create an atmosphere of monastic serenity. The master bath, beautifully done in marble, is the perfect spot for washing away your cares and coming out feeling reborn.

Devil may care

Enjoy a porterhouse under the vaulted ceilings of Wolfgang’s Steak House, or break bread (then dip it into the fondue du jour) at Artisanal. Make a pilgrimage to the area fondly nicknamed Curry Hill, where the best South Asian cuisine in the city can be found. Should you want to lose yourself in other-worldly cares, the Kips Bay movie theatre is just around the corner. And when it’s time to take a leap of faith to explore the rest of Manhattan, the 6 train is just a short walk away.
