The Shephard offers living spaces that are large in scale while being accessible and livable. There was a specific plan for the apartments to flow from room to room, as well as a real awareness that in living here, residents will find they have “a place for everything” -- a mantra oft repeated by the building designers when seated at the drafting tables and envisioning life at The Shephard.
Spacious living rooms have grand layouts with unique vaulted ceilings and 3/4" solid oak floors in a classic herringbone pattern. New custom, landmark-approved windows are double glazed with UV protected glass and allow for light to flow through the rooms. Charming arched windows in many apartments reveal beautiful views.
Kitchens are designed by Gachot Studios with cabinetry built by the acclaimed English firm, Smallbone of Devizes. Made of solid mahogany with exteriors painted in a soft gray color, the cabinets are detailed with custom Valli and Valli hardware of unlacquered brass and satin nickel which are both classic and of the moment. Beautiful statuary white marble island counters are mixed with durable honed black granite work surfaces. All appliances are Miele.
Master bathrooms feature white marble mosaic fan tile flooring with Bianco Dolomiti marble slab accents, custom mahogany vanities and medicine cabinets showcased with thoughtfully designed cabinetry for storage and millwork, radiant heated floors and fixtures by Lefroy Brooks. Secondary bathrooms are designed with Carrara marble walls and countertop slab, black Nero Manquina hex tile floors, satin nickel fixtures and brass details.
Gracious and peaceful bedrooms are generous in size and offer a sanctuary of streaming light and tranquility.
The upper floor residences offer coveted open city exposures as well as views of the Hudson River and The Statue of Liberty to the south and west, and Empire State Building views to the north. Lower floors in the building enjoy classic and pretty tree lined street and garden views.
