Built in 1928 by Frederick Filmore French, 1010 Fifth Avenue is a prestigious white glove cooperative building located directly across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Boasting 19 full-time staff, including elevator operators and a live-in superintendent, 1010 Fifth provides best-in-class service to its residents. Perched on the 13th floor in a landmarked district and nestled among the finest museums, boutiques, restaurants and schools, and with Central Park at its doorstep, this sophisticated and sprawling 16 into 11 room is a light-filled sanctuary spanning nearly 5,000 square feet and boasting extraordinary natural sunlight throughout from all four exposures. Offering unobstructed views over landmarked buildings all the way south to Midtown Manhattan, this beautiful and serene 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom home accommodates both grand entertaining and intimate gatherings. The private elevator vestibule opens on to an impressive 32-foot central gallery. The large-scaled south-facing living room and stunning wood paneled library are flooded with sunlight all day, both with exquisite wood burning fireplaces as their centerpieces. The stately formal dining room features unobstructed views to the east over landmarked buildings and can easily accommodate 20 guests. The expansive windowed chef's kitchen with separate eating area, large center island, custom cabinetry, stone countertops, and butler’s pantry is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, including an 8-burner Wolf vented range and two ovens, two dishwashers and two sinks, and also boasts open eastern views from two oversized windows. A large separate windowed laundry room with ample storage and full-size washer and vented dryer is located off the kitchen. Flowing off the central gallery are two separate bedroom wings, allowing flexible use of the 5 bedrooms and ample privacy. The oversized primary bedroom with southern exposure is quiet and sundrenched, with an astounding 7 closets, one of which is a walk-in. The ensuite bathroom has double vanities, separate stall shower and a soaking tub. The second bedroom with ensuite bathroom is across the hall. The other private bedroom wing has two generously proportioned bedrooms which share a hall bathroom. The fifth bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. Rounding out the private spaces is a separate hallway providing access to the staff room and bathroom. Three zone central A/C services the public rooms and the primary bedroom while the remaining four bedrooms have individually controlled through-wall units with Nest technology. Enviable storage and beautiful architectural details throughout complete this not to be missed gem. Three large private storage bins in the basement transfer with the sale and a fitness center is available for use by residents. Pets are welcome. A rare opportunity to own one of the largest residences on Fifth Avenue that truly feels like a home.
