The oversized living room and dining room are perfectly situated on either side of the vast 20 foot foyer providing a grand 53 foot expanse for gracious living and entertaining. With the large living room windows facing west over Madison Avenue and the dining room window's bright eastern exposure, abundant sunshine floods the apartment throughout the day.
A separate bedroom wing with two split bedrooms provides maximum privacy. The massive primary bedroom faces west over Madison Avenue and features a dressing room with a large walk in closet and an en-suite bath. Down the long hall, lined with closets, is the large second bedroom with a bright eastern exposure and its own bath located in the hall adjacent to the bedroom.
The bright, windowed kitchen is conveniently accessible from both the foyer and the dining room and features plenty of storage and modern appliances. The large, well-proportioned staff room adjacent to the kitchen has its own full, renovated bath. The staff room, currently used as a home office, can easily be used as a third bedroom or to expand the kitchen.
