Enjoy watching the seasons change in Central Park by day, and the twinkling lights of New York's skyline by night, from this fabulous and flawlessly renovated corner apartment at the storied Harperley Hall. This glamorous home is truly turn-key, having been completely redesigned and rebuilt by the accomplished interior designer Erik Smith, with top-of-the line finishes throughout. Perfectly located at the corner of 64th Street and Central Park West, it is ideally positioned a short distance from everything that Manhattan's vibrant midtown and Upper West Side neighborhoods have to offer.
Upon entering the apartment, you are greeted by a gracious formal entry gallery, with two large coat closets. The large corner living room has exposures to the east over the park, and south to the midtown skyline, and boasts Venetian plaster walls, thoughtful built-ins, high ceilings, white oak flooring, and a wood-burning fireplace. French doors open onto a wide balcony, with sweeping direct views of Central Park. Restored original pocket doors separate the living room from the adjacent formal dining room. Currently configured with a built in banquette, the dining room can easily accommodate large dinner parties, but has also been designed to function as a multi-purpose room - not only for dining, but also for use as a library/study or den. The room features beautiful crown mouldings, wainscotting, and French doors that open to a south-facing balcony.
The chef's kitchen boasts custom-made cabinetry, marble countertops and backsplash, and top-of-the-line appliances, including an integrated Sub Zero refrigerator, integrated dishwasher, Gaggenau oven and gas range, and a Dacor microwave.
There are two luxurious bedroom suites, equal in size, with an abundance of closet space, each with en-suite baths. A washer and dryer complete this fabulous home.
Built in 1910, Harperley Hall was designed by Henry W. Wilkinson. Amenities include excellent service provided by the cooperative's staff, a gatehouse with 24-hour attendants at the newly restored courtyard entry, a beautifully landscaped and furnished roof deck, a fitness center, garage, bike room, and storage room. 41 Central Park West is just one block from Lincoln Center, and convenient to world class cultural attractions, restaurants, museums, and shopping. There is a 2% transfer fee.
