This marvelously chic three bedroom apartment is located in one of lower Fifth Avenue's (the Gold Coast) most admired buildings, 24 Fifth Avenue. Designed by Emory Roth, this former residential hotel, and now full service doorman building has pre-war detail that dazzles the eye upon entering the newly restored lobby. High speed elevators (also new) take you quickly to the 15th floor, and at the end of the hall you are greeted by a spacious foyer, giving on to a double-wide living room facing east onto Fifth Avenue. Jonathan Caplan, the renowned architect, has created a sense of contemporary elegance, with refined detail. He is well known for his sensitivity to surfaces, and this apartment is no exception in his employment of wood, etc.
The current owner purchased an adjoining studio apartment which Mr. Caplan combined with the 2 bedroom unit, creating one of the very few successful and seamless combinations available.
The layout allows all bedrooms to be private and separate, each with en suite baths. The modern stainless kitchen is graced with beautiful wood custom cabinetry, a Miele induction cooktop and convection oven, as well as Miele dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator. There are fabulous closets for each bedroom, with carefully considered functional detail. Central air throughout. There is a very cheerful ambiance here. Very much a 'home'.
This is a co-exclusive with Douglas Elliman.
