This Fifth Avenue trophy property features almost 4,000 square feet and is an unparalleled oasis overlooking Central Park. Greet each day from one of two wraparound terraces totaling over 900 square feet. Take in the beating heart of New York City, from the George Washington Bridge to the north, down to the Empire State Building and beyond. Wind down every evening with breathtaking sunsets over the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir through 40 feet of curving picture windows facing west across Central Park.
This one-of-a-kind 18th floor residence offers a rarely matched 100 linear feet along Fifth Avenue with North, South, East and West exposures. Stunning. Sophisticated. Serene. Apartment 18B is the south wing and Apartment 18C is the north wing. Each has five rooms: living room, dining room, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a guest powder room. Both apartments have breathtaking wrap around terraces.
Easily combine the two living rooms to create a 40-foot entertaining space perched over Central Park and the Jacklyn Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. Enter both the south terrace and the north terrace from this one-of-a-kind living room. The magnificent southwest terrace is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon luncheon and/or sunset cocktails gazing over the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Reservoir and Central Park. Equally grand is the northwest terrace, large enough for outdoor seating and dining surrounded by the landscape of Central Park.
Apartment 18B has a spectacular open kitchen to the dining room with extraordinary views of the park, a completely unique feature that offers a spectacular daily living experience. This kitchen has park views unlike anything on the market, and opens to the dining area, allowing you to simultaneously prepare meals, mingle with dinner guests, and enjoy the changing seasons. The current formal dining room in apt 18C could be a home office, den/media room/ guest suite or your own gym. Its second kitchen could be a proper laundry room, with large machines and a vented dryer, sink, ironing station and oversized pantry.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to seamlessly combine two five-room homes to create countless configurations. Please see the current floor plan and one possible alternate plan attached.
