A New York City Icon with Central Park Views
Welcome home to the legendary Beresford on Central Park West, where famed architect Emery Roth's extraordinary design still provides the finest white glove service with a contemporary touch. Built in 1929, the building is a pre-war dream, with ballroom proportions, soaring ten foot ceilings, classic moldings, and all the rich detail and craftsmanship of the time. Rarely available, apartments in The Beresford have been home to celebrities, luminaries, politicians, CEOs...and now you!
Apartment 14D, with over 4000 square feet of living space, is a sprawling 4-bedroom/4.5-bath residence that boasts the perfect balance of old world elegance and must-have modern amenities. Each of its ten luxurious rooms has been updated -- including new casement windows, thru-the-wall air conditioning and electric blinds -- without sacrificing its original character and charm.
A private elevator landing opens directly on a grand entrance gallery. Original yet pristine herringbone floors lead the way to the expansive corner living room with a wood-burning fireplace. Five windows facing South and East provide sweeping views of Central Park and the best of the city skyline. The Park views continue from the oversized dining room, so you and your dinner guests can mark the seasons by the vivid colors of the treetops. The library, adjacent to the living room, comes with custom built-in bookshelves and its own Park and dramatic skyline vistas. The renovated gourmet kitchen features an eight burner Wolf stove with vented hood, Sub-Zero fridge, double sink and other top of the line stainless steel appliances. It boasts ample custom cabinetry, an island with extensive counter space, informal windowed dining area plus an open office/media alcove with half-bath. For formal entertaining, the butler's pantry is designed with extra counter space, glass cabinetry, double sink, wine fridge, ice maker and half fridge. Discreetly tucked away through the pantry, the laundry room has a washer, vented dryer and even more shelving for bulk storage.
The dramatic gallery separates the public rooms from the residential wing. Each of the four bedrooms are generously sized with their own walk-in closets and separate windowed en-suite baths. The three larger bedrooms, including the massive primary bedroom, face South for skyline views, while the fourth bedroom faces North. The primary bedroom also comes with a wall of custom built-ins. Stay impeccably organized with this seemingly unlimited amount of closets and cabinetry incorporated throughout the apartment.
The Beresfords' location is ideal, at the corner of 81st Street, with easy access to Central Park, the Museum of Natural History and the New York Historical Society. Everything the Upper West Side has to offer -- from boutiques to fine dining -- is right here. An immaculately maintained co-op with three pristine lobbies, each surrounded by thoughtfully curated landscaping. Building amenities include state-of-the-art fitness club, storage rooms (based on availability), bicycle room, and central laundry. Pied-a-terres permitted. Pets allowed.
