New York—Cantor-Pecorella has made available 78 units in Rutherford Place at Stuyvesant Square, a collection of duplex and triplex one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with ceilings up to 17 feet, oversized windows as high as 10 feet and oak hardwood floors, which range from $600,000 to $2.5 million.
“In keeping with the company’s mission, Rutherford Place is a diamond in the rough,” Richard Cantor, principal of Cantor-Pecorella, tells MHN. “Cantor-Pecorella is dedicated to providing its clients with the best of the best Manhattan has to offer, and they believe Rutherford Place possesses a certain prestige unlike any other in the city.”
Located at 305 Second Avenue between 17th and 18th Streets, the 10-story building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as it was originally designed in 1902 by noted period architect Robert Henderson Robertson.
All available condominiums in the building have been renovated with high-end contemporary finishes, fixtures and appliances. Kitchens feature a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, Viking range, honed granite countertops and Poggenpohl European walnut cabinetry. Bathrooms have Koehler Chablis pedestal sinks, white Italian porcelain tiles and charcoal grey granite floors.
“At Rutherford, no two apartments are exactly alike. Most residences are duplex or triplex with ceilings up to 17 feet, and feature oversized windows as high as 10 feet,” Cantor says. “A number of apartments also feature French doors and private patios, many with breathtaking views of Stuyvesant Square and Lower Manhattan. Classic detail was purposely kept in the renovation design, which adds charm and historic character to the distinguished 10-story building.”
Building amenities include a full-time doorman, bicycle room, gym and a landscaped roof deck open to all residents. Valet, laundry and maid service is also available.
The entrance and lobby at Rutherford Place are under renovation, but retain the original elaborately carved Carrara marble, gold leaf decorated coffered ceiling and wrought iron doors.
Rutherford Place faces Stuyvesant Square, a spectacular four-acre park surrounded by a beautiful cast iron fence. It bears striking similarities to nearby Gramercy Park, but unlike Gramercy it has always been open to the public. Nearby on Second Avenue and 19th Street is the Augustus St. Gaudens Playground. Local schools include the prestigious Friends Seminary, the oldest continuous coeducational school in New York City and the highly regarded Public School 40 on 19th Street.
“With its unique shops, great restaurants, beautiful park and easy access to public transportation, it’s no wonder everyone wants to buy in Gramercy,” Cantor says. “But for those who desire the area’s lifestyle without sacrificing square footage, neighboring Stuyvesant Square is an ideal location to experience all Gramercy has to offer.”
