This exceptional Fifth Avenue Classic 7 is situated in a premier Carnegie Hill cooperative directly across from Central Park. Lovingly maintained by the same family for over 30 years, this sprawling pre-war home features a timeless and versatile layout with 9 foot ceilings, oversized windows, and sunny tree top views. Upon entering from the private elevator landing, a gracious foyer leads to a large, elegant living room with wood burning fireplace-which flows into an equally expansive dining room with French doors and built -in bookcases. Both rooms boast well-preserved herringbone wood floors and crown moldings. The sleeping quarters include two spacious corner bedrooms, one of which is currently split in half to create a separate office space, and two full bathrooms. A windowed eat-in kitchen includes a washer/dryer, and a separate prep area/pantry connects to the dining room. Two maid's rooms share a half bathroom, which can easily be combined to create a larger bedroom and a full bathroom.
