Designed in 1928 by master architect J.E.R. Carpenter, 1060 Fifth Avenue is among the Upper East Side’s most elegant addresses. Perfectly situated, it is moments from Central Park, and is convenient to many of New York City’s best schools, restaurants, museums, and galleries.
The architectural merits and the stellar and flexible floor plan of this stunning residence aptly convey the superiority of the top echelon of prewar cooperative residences. The proportions are gorgeous, and original details, such as beautiful herringbone hardwood floors, soaring high 11’ ceilings, and period moldings abound. Delightfully, these highly-coveted classic details are underpinned by a recent and complete renovation, and the result is a perfect balance of elegant pre-war scale and modern advantage.
A semi-private elevator landing accesses the grandly-scaled Gallery, from which emanate the three splendid reception rooms. The 30’ sun-drenched Living Room is flooded with light from a series of windows with southern and eastern outlooks and features a wood-burning fireplace.
Adjacent, there is a handsome wood-paneled Library with marvelous light and southern outlooks and an expansive, stately Dining Room. A Powder Room and coat closets are conveniently accessible.
Beyond, the state-of-the art and sun-flooded chef’s Kitchen is completely new, having undergone a thorough renovation. Boasting a full complement of top-of the-line smart appliances, marble countertops, and a windowed banquette, it is supported by a generous Butler’s Pantry, a convenient Pantry with copper-lined firewood storage and ample closets, and a double Staff Bedroom with an ensuite bath that incorporates a hidden laundry closet.
Separated from the rest of the residence by a long hallway, is a wonderful and spacious Primary Bedroom with sunny southern outlooks, an ensuite marble bath with a marvelously large and spa-like soaking tub and oversized shower, and ample closets.
1060 Fifth Avenue is a premier white-glove cooperative with a canopied entrance on 87th Street and a divinely glamorous marble lobby. Impeccable staffing includes full-time doorman and porters, and a resident manager. 1060 Fifth Avenue offers its residents a number of superior amenities, including a state-of-the-art private fitness center, a resistance swimming pool, a golf simulator, a half-court basketball court, as well as dedicated individual storage units. Pets are welcome.
