This is a MUST-SEE triple-mint and superbly designed high floor eight-into-seven room apartment, with three bedrooms and three baths, featuring 50 FEET OF FRONTAGE on Fifth Avenue and six huge panorama windows OVERLOOKING CENTRAL PARK! Famed architect J.E.R. Carpenter designed this classic coop in the heart of Carnegie Hill, a premier residential neighborhood embracing the park, the reservoir, playing fields and many schools. This apartment exhibits Carpenter's signature style: grand scale entertaining rooms, high ceilings, gorgeous wood floors, generous closet space, and a flexible floorplan to fit any buyer's needs. Totally renovated and fully air-conditioned, it features many high-end design finishes, architectural millwork and moldings, custom lighting, wired and wireless technical networks, and a Crestron sound/video system. Enter this sun-flooded apartment from its semi-private elevator vestibule into an enormous gallery - a room in and of itself. The grand living room is one of the many rooms with stunning views of Central Park and the iconic Central Park West skyline. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace, herringbone floors and huge windows with mirrored reveals catching brilliant sunlight and views all the way to Riverside Church and even the George Washington Bridge. The corner master bedroom and master bathroom, as well as another bedroom/library, also face the Park through four more large single-pane windows. The bedroom which is currently being used as a library adjoins a full bath and can easily be readapted to its original use. There is also a third large bedroom which also adjoins a full bath. Off the gallery is the corner formal dining room with three large windows. As large as many living rooms, it is an elegant dining space, but it could also be used as a media room/library or multi-functional family room! The oversized kitchen has three very large windows and is custom designed for a chef. It has all top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf range with two (never been used!) ovens, six burners, vented hood, a griddle and a grill, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine fridge, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, a Bosch dishwasher, two sinks, and a large-capacity Miele washer with large vented dryer. There is space to make a banquette eating area, too. The butler's pantry has its own sink, ice-maker, and plenty of storage. The staff room/extra bedroom has its own full windowed bath and closet. Private storage is included.
