1172 Park Avenue 12D, available on the open market for the first time. Though currently configured as a 2 BR apartment, the apartments roots as part of a very large premier-on-Park Ave apartment remain. Upon entering, one is immediately met with a sweep of public rooms, now combined to offer 38 feet of space featuring five magnificent windows each with unobstructed western views of the reservoir, peeks of the park, treetops, and vast sky. Tucked away from the public rooms in their own secluded wing, the bedrooms are sunlit and graciously appointed with generous closet space. The Primary bedroom is a corner room with dual exposures and en-suite bathroom. Bridging the public and private wings of the home, at the crux, is the wonderfully square-rather-than-galley kitchen complete with an eat-in area.
While the heart of this home is the incredible floorplan and high-perched position within the building, allowing for tremendous light and views, there is an additional layer of elegance achieved through the copious closet space, extraordinarily high ceilings, and bespoke built-ins. Finally, creature comforts abound as the WD is cleverly concealed within the kitchen and thru-wall AC installed throughout the apartment.
1172 Park Ave is one of Carnegie Hills not-so-hidden gems. Well regarded as a true standout in the area for being beyond full service featuring a complete gym, storage, etc -- the position of the building within the neighborhood just a stones through away from The Guggenheim, fine eateries and shops, and public transit is completely consistent with the jewels-of-apartments within the outer edifice. Originally designed with only two incredibly grand apartments per floor by famed architect Rosario Candela, the building was reimagined over time in such a way that the some of the apartments are truly unique in all the best ways and that couldnt be more evident than in apartment 12D.
