This beautifully renovated and South facing 9 room home at famed 1185 Park Avenue is a very special home.
From the moment you enter the courtyard of 1185 Park Avenue one is transported to a more tranquil place. The special nature of this building is like none other.
Off an elegant semi private landing enter into the dramatic over 27' long gallery, great for displaying art and entertaining. The perfect layout provides that the private quarters flow in one direction off the gallery and the public quarters in the other direction. In addition to two large walk-in coat closets in the gallery, there is an appropriately placed powder room right off the gallery.
The public quarters are comprised of a South facing library (or fourth bedroom) with French doors, a South facing grand living room with wood burning fireplace and an extra large formal dining room facing North into the building's beautiful courtyard. A hallmark of this particular line at 1185 Park, the living room and formal dining room boast regal proportions; the living room is over 16 feet wide and over 27 feet long.
Off of the dining room is the fabulous butler's pantry with cabinets with glass doors for dishes, a sink, an extra dishwasher, ice maker and full size wine refrigerator. The butler's pantry leads to the enormous East facing windowed, eat-in kitchen with beautiful custom cabinetry and statuary marble countertops. A total chef's delight, there are 2 sinks, a Garland Professional stove with 6 burners, 2 large gas ovens, a broiler and griddle, 2 additional electric wall ovens, a 48" refrigerator/freezer and copious counter and cabinet space as well as a very large eat- in area.
Off the kitchen there are 2 staff rooms with a new large full bathroom. One staff room is used as a laundry room/mud room with a full sized, vented washer/dryer and the other is a spacious windowed office.
In the bedroom wing there are 3 well-proportioned bedrooms, each of which has its own en-suite bathroom and excellent closet space. The corner master bedroom faces South and West, is bathed in wonderful light and has partial Park and Reservoir views. It has two closets, one being a large walk-in. The master bathroom has a large steam shower, a separate bathtub, and a double vanity with fantastic storage. The other 2 bedrooms face South and West. Both are very large and the West facing one also has a partial Park and Reservoir view!
This stunning residence has 3 zones of central air conditioning, soaring nearly 10 foot ceilings and is wired for sound in most rooms. There are elegant solid hardwood floors, beautiful prewar details and great light throughout.
1185 Park Avenue is one of Carnegie Hill's favorite cooperatives. Upon entering into the gates of the stunning courtyard, one feels they have entered an elegant private estate. This white glove service building has a state of the art gym, children's playroom, roof garden, and is pet friendly.
