Perched above the trees on the southeast corner of Central Park West and 81st Street, surrounded by beauty in every direction, this home provides a peaceful and bucolic setting while placing all of Manhattan?s assets within easy reach.
An impressive gallery leads to entertaining rooms of major proportions - a massive corner living room flanked by a grand Park-facing dining room and a warm and inviting den/library. Exquisite herringbone floors, elegant moldings, detailed ceiling plasterwork, and a decorative fireplace create the perfect backdrop for special gatherings. A bar area with intricate millwork and a room devoted to wine storage add to the pleasure and ease of having guests.
A large, divinely equipped kitchen with a center island and separate breakfast room is yet another joy in this phenomenal home. Well placed with easy access to the dining room, it is part of the brilliant design of the overall space.
A hidden treasure of the home is a second living room, more informal in nature and perfect for recreational activities - reading, TV watching, game playing, etc.
Every area throughout the apartment is intelligently planned and well used, meeting the needs of the current occupants. There are several dedicated offices and a second library But it is also uniquely flexible. Currently configured with four - five bedrooms, minor adjustments can easily increase the bedroom count to six or seven, losing none of the special qualities of the residence.

All remaining bedrooms are beautifully appointed and are located side-by-side in their own ?universe?, completing a perfect layout.
This house-like residence includes an exercise room, laundry room, and abundant storage. Additionally, the owner is offering a double staff room with a maintenance charge of $1,011 for $600,000.
This opulent home also enjoys the benefit of being in the Beresford, one of Manhattan?s most revered prewar coops. Exceptionally well run, it is known for its white-glove service, enviable location, and its notable addition to Central Park West?s magnificent skyline.
