Description

From the early development of Manhattan to the present day, lower Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village has been home to New York's most prominent families. This special enclave of luxury pre-war co-ops designed by renowned architects continues to appeal to a variety of individuals. Rarely does a lower Fifth Avenue penthouse offering the grand scale, radiant light and tranquility of this magnificent townhouse-in-the-sky become available. Completely transformed by native Italian craftsmen, one is transported to Florence by stepping into this residence's foyer. The corner sitting room offers 10.5-foot coffered ceilings and five oversized nine-panel windows in addition to a magnificent fireplace. The formal dining room, flanked by two terrace doors, is ideal for entertaining and invites you to enjoy a drink on the loggia overlooking historic architectural views. The chef s kitchen offers the spaciousness once found in old-world New York mansions and is dramatically lit by soaring skylights. The private quarters are reached by a beautiful staircase under an arched window and complete this flexible, 2 to 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home. Open eastern city views fill the spacious master bedroom suite, balanced by a noble fireplace and the second bedroom is filled with gorgeous morning light. Added modern amenities include central air conditioning, updated infrastructure and a vented washer and dryer.

39 Fifth is an elegant pre-war co-op designed by acclaimed 1920 s architect Emery Roth who was commissioned by renown builders Bing & Bing to custom-build this full-service, Spanish Renaissance-styled residence featuring arched lobby ceilings and intimate landings.
