Off of a semi-private elevator landing you enter the gracious foyer and immediately recognize master architect J.E.R. Carpenter's signature style: grand rooms, high beamed ceilings, beautiful hardwood herringbone floors, a wood burning fireplace with a handcrafted mantle in the living room, and prewar charm and moldings throughout. The major rooms all face North onto the Street with a peak at Central Park. Adjacent to the living room is a huge formal dining room. The apartment is in very good condition with through-the-wall air conditioning and a washer/dryer. The windowed eat-in-kitchen and butler's pantry has bountiful storage space and is bathed in southern light. Currently the kitchen has incorporated one of the two staff rooms to create an eat-in island and laundry area. The staff room off the kitchen has its own private full bathroom and closet. The master bedroom is off its own hallway and has double exposures North and East with wonderful light, a windowed bath ensuite, and a large walk-in closet. The second and third bedrooms are nicely sized and share a bath in between them and 6 closets. The second bedroom is currently used as a library/guest room and has handsome built-ins and southern light pouring in.
