Ideally located on the Southwest corner of 73rd Street and Park Avenue, 770 Park Avenue is an outstanding 19 story building designed by the famed architect Rosario Candela in 1930, and has become one of the most coveted and esteemed white-glove cooperatives in New York. These units are rarely available and highly sought after for their superlative grandeur, sprawling floorplans, magnificent ceiling heights, and gracious entertaining rooms.
Apartment 14D is truly exceptional and is perched high up with light coming in from all four exposures. The apartment consists of 13 rooms: Living room, Dining Room, Library, Kitchen, 2 staff rooms, Staff dining room, pantry, 3 enormous bedrooms and 2 separate dressing rooms. The apartment is in original condition but has been maintained beautifully, especially the gorgeous hardwood floors.
Off a private elevator landing, the gallery of this capacious apartment opens up to a dramatic 30 x 20 foot corner living room with nearly 11 foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, 2 enormous 8 over 8 pane windows, and a unique standing terrace with two sets of French doors. The living room has open views North and West with views of Central Park and the iconic buildings on Central Park West. Adjacent to the living room is a formal library with another wood-burning fireplace, bright southern exposure and ornate original wood built-ins. The formal dining room with a private entrance to the staff pantry/kitchen is over 20 feet long and also shares the gorgeous standing terrace with open views North. A large powder room situated off the gallery completes this perfect setup for grand entertaining.
Off a private bedroom hallway, there are three enormous bedrooms each with their own bathroom ensuite. There are two primary bedrooms, each with large dressing rooms. The closet space in this apartment is extraordinary with 7 walk-in closets in the bedroom wing, some as large as staff rooms.
The kitchen faces East and with some TLC this could be a chef's dream. There is a staff dining room and pantry/laundry room that could all be reconfigured to make a large eat-in kitchen. The two staff rooms also get nice light and share a full bathroom. This apartment comes with two large storage rooms (see floorplan for dimensions) in the basement.
770 Park Avenue is rich with history, and even its lobby was designed by the iconic Dorothy Draper. It is only blocks from The Frick Collection, The Whitney Museum, Lenox Hill Hospital, subways, restaurants and stores. The cooperative has a full time doorman and staff, a resident manager, and a gym. Summer work rules apply. Pets and pied-a-terres are allowed. There is a 3% Flip tax.
