Apartment 6/7A presents a rare opportunity to purchase a grand and gracious Candela classic 12 room duplex that has belonged to the same family for over 50 years. The elegance and character of a bygone era is now ready to be reimagined for today's lifestyle.
A private elevator landing opens onto an expansive marble gallery which serves as an anchor to all the public entertaining rooms. The grand corner living room with Austrian walnut paneling and magnificent WBF is reminiscent of the type of old world European craftsmanship found in years past. There are beautiful double doors that open to the adjacent library featuring glazed wood paneled walls, built in bookcases and another magnificent WBF. A large beautiful formal dining room is perfectly proportioned for grand entertaining and family gatherings. All the rooms are architecturally and beautifully proportioned with oversized windows, high ceilings, solid oak hardwood floors, original classic moldings, and open south and western exposures over Park Ave and 85th St. Completing the first floor is the large windowed kitchen area which currently consists of a pantry, breakfast area, 2 staff rooms and a bathroom. This can easily be transformed to create an inviting state of the art chef's kitchen with space to include a staff room and laundry room. ( See Alternate Floorplan)
A classic elegant staircase connects the first floor gallery to the bedroom level. A signature Candela powder room is situated mid-staircase. All the bedrooms radiate off the upstairs gallery. The current master bedroom ( 22'7 x 17') with two en suite bathrooms and ample closets previously existed as 2 separate bedrooms which can easily be reconfigured should another bedroom be needed. There are two additional bedrooms each with an en suite bathroom and two maids rooms which can be transformed to an additional bedroom with en suite bathroom. The beauty of this floor plate allows for the flexibility to create 4-5 bedrooms, subject to Board Approval ( See Alternate Floorplan)
