Condo pick of the week

A sun-drenched, celebrity-designed Park Avenue perch

Bright and airy is the name of the game in this two-bedroom Gramercy Park apartment, a corner unit with multiple exposures and high ceilings. It's also one of the units in the Huys Condominium, a former office building given a luxury revamp by Dutch designer Piet Boon in 2014.

The property comes with tons of perks, and is steps from the subway and Madison Square Park. Listed for $4.495 million by Engel & Völkers, the condo's price is on the high end for new condos in the area, according to a StreetEasy search, but it's come down by a bit—$455,000—already and there may be room to negotiate for more of a drop. 

You'll enter a spacious living room, which has a loft-like feel thanks to 11-foot, beamed ceilings. Huge casement windows offer views of East 28th Street and bring in lots of light, which you can dim using built-in electronic solar shades. The open kitchen features an elegant, marble countertop island and all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a high-end property, like sophisticated, chef-friendly appliances as well as a washer and dryer. 

Despite the space's relative spareness, it has a few homey touches, like the built-in reading nook seen in the master bedroom above. (There are also similar nooks in the living room and second bedroom.) The master also includes a walk-in closet, and its en-suite bath features a double vanity, separate shower, and soaking tub, and radiant heat floors. 


The building's many amenities include full-time concierge service, a gym, playroom, and media lounge; the views from the landscaped roof, which has a cooking and eating area, look particularly impressive.
